    Cowboy Action Shooting is about as much fun as you can have with your clothes (period correct, of course) on! I've done this for more than a decade and it gets addictave! Shoots all over the state and country, folks havin' fun, a test of skill, and it's cheaper than playin' motorcycles!

    I shot Cowboy Compitition The cost well I paid $295.00 a gun for a couple of pistols, $289.00 for a lever action 1892 rifle, $259.00 for a 20 inch side by side coachgun. Holsters I ordered from cabelas got a crossdraw and a mexican style double loop holster with a cartridge belt. lots of ammo 45lc and 12 ga. ordered clothes from texas jacks hat Shirt vest pants Had boots already and bought a new hat now its a sunday go to meetin hat lol. clothes was almost $175.00 belt and holsters about $130.00 hat was on special sale discontined item. $59.00 it can get pricey just depends on what you wanna look like. but everyone in my group knows you cant get everything in one day they will let you compete and even let people shoot who dont even have guns. I have seen many a people loan their guns to a new shooter.( we call that the cowboyway) to get more people involved in the sport its alot of fun, and I wouldnt trade my experience for anything in the world. Alot of good people there. My opinion only I would like to see more people get involved in it to keep the spirit of the old west alive I got my daughter involved in it years ago and she loves it as for me I had to sit on the bench for a good while now that work keeps me from going to matches. I say give it a go. I promise if they are as good as the group I used to shoot with at Old Fort Parker in Grosbeck, you will enjoy it. as we say in the ole Shoot matches at the end of the day happy trails and keep all chambers on full lol.

    It does look like a lot of fun, I don't think there are any folks within 200 miles of Houston though. I would like to try it.

    Always wanted to try but the wife is not thrilled with the start up costs (I like nice stuff), got a pair of vaqueros I've had for a while but nothing else. From what I read most groups are pretty lenient about slowly gearing up but boots and hat are minimum from day one haha.
