New Shooters are Welcome
Whether you’re new to Cowboy Action Shooting [CAS] or to the Long Nine Cowboys, we invite you to shoot with us. If you’ve never shot a match with us before, your first match is FREE. Spectators are also welcome. Eye and ear protection are required for all shooters and spectators.
Free Match for First-time Shooters
Never shot a match with us before? Your first match with the Long Nine Cowboys is FREE! Please tell us at the registration table.
Detailed stages & scenarios are available on this web site prior to every match as a printable PDF document, 5 to 7 days ahead of the match in the Scores & Stages section. If you would like to be notified by E-mail when they’re available, please click on the “Sign Me Up!” button on the right-hand column of this web site.
At each match, we present awards from the previous month’s match for each Clean Shooter and category winner, usually 3-deep [1st – 3rd places]. They are handsome wooden nickels, engraved with the shooter’s name and date of match.
For an optional $1 donation, your name will be put in the hat for the 50/50 drawing at each match.
We draw a name at random at each match so that one participant gets his/her match fee returned and shoots free for the day.
