Has caught my attention, probably because I don’t have to shoot real ammo! Wax bullets, primers, and reamed out primer pockets seems like a nice trick to beat the ridicules price of ammo. Anyone here participate and willing to share tips and trick of getting into the hobby with the new guy?
Thanks,
Peter

I've watched it online for years and love it, but it does not have Cowboy in the name. That's part of SASS, I think. The sport has a very small following nowadays . A couple states usually run the show always.

See if you can find some old Cal Elrich videos online. He's a big name in it.

Like you, I wish it was huge. I would jump right in it.

And it's pretty good for spectators too, unlike most shooting competition.

Can you imagine the ridicule MATT DILLON would have suffered from the towns people and the frequenters of the Long Branch if he had placed his body in the same contortions as the shooters we see on TV and U-Tube. Half laid back almost falling on the ground. I have watched a few matches on TV as well as U-Tube, fast yes, but almost a joke.

Knew two guys that gave it a try with live ammo. Both managed pass-throughs of the thigh without hitting bone. One was a .22, the other a .41.

One of the most amazing shooters to me was Bob Munden.

Even he used a protective holster, with a piece of angled flat steel on the backside of his holster, just in Case,
that would deflect an errant round, just to be safe!

SMART MAN!

It's a sport. That's why they use blanks and wax bullets. They have many divisions. If you want to use more traditional guns and holsters, and thumb cock, there is one for that.

I knew one, .22 messed him up pretty badly.

He instantly became the most gun safety-conscious man alive.

the reason you see many different positions people shoot from is for speed and the least amount of hand movement possible to get the fastest draw. you guys should not knock it until you try it CowBoy Fast Draw has thousands of members in this country and a few other countries. I have been shooting this sport for 13 years now and it is the hardest shooting sport to master because it is so mental it changes from minute to minute and to be a champion you must be able to hit the target at about 70% of the time and shoot under .400 thousands of a second. that is from the time the light comes on till the wax bullet hits the target. we are having the US Championships in Deadwood,SD next month and have about 270 shooters from the US and I believe 3 Foreign countries coming. 400 since you show to be in Arizona you will find a lot of shooters there to check it out go to CowBoy Fast Draw on the web and you will find a list of all the clubs in the US with contact phone numbers so call the closest one up and they will let you give it a shot using their holsters,guns and ammo and it will not cost anything. great thing about this sport is you can shoot against a World, State or Territorial champion and beat them because it is your day and not theirs. you see above Cisko aka Master Gunfighter he has won many Championships but I have beaten him so it can be done and is a very inexpensive sport and a lot of fun, where else can you shoot 100 rounds of ammo for less than 10.00 sorry for this being so long

I wish you the best and hope to see it grow. Problem is many states don't have it at all.
