Ok you knew it was coming, this past weekend Madame Moog and I shot in the New Jersey State match. Jesemay Kid, Dancin Angel and the crew up there at The Jackson Hole Gang did a great job with the match. The props were nice and the stages were fast but still made you think. Madame and I thank you guys for your hard work. I’m sure there are about 50 things that need to happen for a big match like that most of us cowboys don’t even think of.  Hats off guys and gals!   We popped up like toas...

What a weekend, this past weekend was the Lake County Pistoleros monthly match. I stopped to pick up my shooting buddy Shelleen and the guard at the gate didn’t even ask me any questions. He just opened the gate. After 3 years it’s about time they know me. 6:30 am we’re rolling for Eustis fl. It was hot already and super steamy, that didn’t stop us. The drive went by pretty quick and before we knew it we were on the range and signed in. We said the pledge and made the announcements and we were o...

Another month of shooting and I’m back to blog. With my match The Antelope Junction Rangers cancelling in august gave me a chance to get out and shoot at another club on that weekend. So, I packed up my toys and drove up to FT. White Florida to shoot with the Ft. White Cowboy Calvary. I like that range and wish I could shoot there more often, with most of the stages shaded and fans make beating the Florida heat a little easier. I shot ok for me finishing in the top 10 at least. I don’t know abou...

Ok, this week was Lake County Pistoleros, Shelleen had to ride solo as Madame Moog joined me for the ride and shoot this weekend.  We talked about what she wants to do with the landscaping and how I need to knock the weeds down out back. I gotta say Shelleen and i talk about more fun stuff.  She hasn’t been shooting all that much since she hurt her shoulder but felt good enough to get it done Saturday. She shot well 2 misses for the whole match and the best time she has placed since she started ...

This past weekend I shot with the Weewahootee Vigilance Committee if you want to call it shooting. I picked up Shelleen and we started west on I4. The sun was coming up and very little traffic made me think “what a nice way to spend a Saturday”. We talked about what happened on WestWorld and there were a few “wait, what's” from me as Shelleen was breaking it down for me. I guess I’ll need to watch the last EP again. Got our grub and pulled on to the range.   Set up our carts, said our good...

Nothing really.......Grip, Stance, Sight Alignment, Sight Picture, Trigger Control are all componenets of shooting accurate.....and shooting fast. For me shooting Fast is doing all the same things a bullseye shooter would do but condensing down the amount of time they do it in and accepting less than perfect results. Lot's of folks will tell you to shoot fast and the accuracy will catch up.....I'll will tell you to learn to shoot accurately first. Learn what you need to "see" and "feel" to be...

Well here is how Georgia State went for The Moog. I picked up Shelleen on Wednesday afternoon and we headed north. It rained for most of the drive bet we made it with time to spare. Thursday morning, we went to the range and Shelleen shot the side and practice matches while I worked from the club house. Damn, work is a 4-letter word.   Friday morning came, we went to the range did our normal morning prep, safety meeting and possed up. Cowboy Junky read the stage and we were off. That’s wh...

We started driving Thursday morning for the Florida State CAS Championship. Was a perfect day for a drive too. We hit I-10 and I thought we were almost there… nope another 100 miles to go. we did make it there though and driving on to the range I gotta say was very nice. To see the CAS props and then the shooters, it don’t really matter where you go to shoot it always kinda feels like home. We signed in got our pack from even more familiar faces. Thanks to Cas, Holler, Shamrock Sadie and the ...

The Ides of March came and went this year and as always it was a great match. A good combination of people and location will do that. I would like to give a job and I do mean JOB well done to Arcadia Outlaw, Greta D, Brucester Diamond and Wildcard Willow. The set up crew deserves recognition as well, unfortunately I don’t know everyone that helped set up, but I really do appreciate the hard work. Without you we probably would not be playing this game. 10 stages of targets, tables, props, canopie...

This past weekend was my first match as match director for the Antelope Junction Rangers. I got to the range started laying out carpets and getting ready to go as people started showing up. Made the sign up sheet added the shooters to the electronics and started the match. There is defiantly more work than loading up your stuff and heading to the range to shoot. I have some plans for AJR, I’m going to make some props like, fences, hitchin posts, cactuses and cow boy cut outs. If you have any...

I haven’t blogged in a while, been busy with the holidays, shooting and a couple trips thrown in there. I thought about it this morning and thought I’d catch up. I will be the new match director for the Antelope Junction Rangers starting January 2018. Horace E Rider has been a great MD and has always had a passion for CAS and his club. I hope I can take over and do half as good. I purchased a laser engraver and made some clean match badges for some of the clubs I shoot at. I claimed one for s...

Madame Moog and I made through IRMA with no major damage. The cleanup was faster than getting power back on though. The storm cancelled the AJR match and The Lake County Pistoleros match as well as people were still recovering. I had booked a trip to Pennsylvania to shoot with my dad at his local match but the first flight was canceled. We cleaned up and Madame Moog rebooked my flight so I did get to shoot last weekend. The Titusville PA Sportsman Club has challenging match once a month. The ...
