Where do you live? (what state or country)


When did you start shooting CAS and how did you or who got you into the sport?

Joined SASS Nov. 2013 and promptly shot a match in Jacksonville after seeing one out at the range where I was a member. My second match was the 2014 Siege of Saint Augustine.

Who was your mentor, either known to them or not?

Willie Whiskers assigned Lightload to keep an eye on me at the first match. He tried but I wasn't very teachable. I also recall Confederate Colt trying to help me load my shotgun at the Siege. Everybody was cool about letting me settle in. I developed some bad habits. Many of you have helped me overcome some of them.

How much do you practice, how many rounds a month do you send down range?

I almost never practice. I shoot a match almost every weekend and that takes up my time and ammo. I dry fire to smooth transitions and try to increase speed.

Have you won any state, regional, national or world championships?

No Championships yet but I have come close and plan to keep trying.

Tell us about your most memorable match:

I remember the last one best. Kind of hard to answer just one because it's several for different reasons. For example the 2020 Southeast Regional was great because I was invited to come along by some other shooter who are great (Colt, Bucky, and Blackie). 2020 Dark Days was great because I met some great Indiana shooters and I did well against some great competition. 2018 Little River because it was so dang cold. I like shooting out of state monthly matches , too. Like Wartrace , Ocoee , and Cavern Cove.

What is your favorite aspect of CAS?

I have always been competitive. For me it is a race. I have always raced. On Foot, Bicycles, Motorcycles, Cars, and now Guns. I love the people and the commitment to the integrity , the Cowboy Way and I want to do well and continue to improve in the competition.

Is there a story behind your alias, and what is that story?

An old old friend use to call me Little Dead Drewzter after the song Little Red Rooster as covered by the Grateful Dead. We used to see the Dead a lot and I love their Cowboy Songs. I wanted to use some of the names in those songs like August West and Jack Straw or Stagger Lee but they were all taken so I reverted to Little Dead Drewzter. There is another part of the story but you can't print it.

Do you have a travel/shooting buddy? (you know that friend that makes this game what itis)

Not currently but I don't mind traveling alone and meeting people. I am open to it.

Where is your favorite place to shoot? (range or match past or present) 

Ft White for sure. I like Wild Bunch and Rimfire Ruckus and they have those plus CAS. They have great trees, fans, stages. props and buildings.

Have you tried other categories? What categories have you shot and how did that go?

There was a match at Cowford where each stage was a different style. Duelist, Gunfighter, Outlaw. I did better than I thought I would.

What is your posse job of choice?

Resetting Steel

What is the time of your fastest clean stage?

I think high 18. I have only broke 20 with four shotgun about ten times.

What was the best advice you got from a fellow shooter, and who was it?

There is not just one but I do remember when Delta Glen told me to same time by putting my rifle down with my left hand while pulling my right pistol with my right hand. It got me thinking about transitions in general. Before that I was just trying to get thru the stage

What advice can you give to some of the shooters reading this?

Don't take yourself too seriously. Live and let live. One stage at a time. Keep it simple. Easy does it. Smooth is fast.

What keeps you playing this game?

Primers and bullets. Seriously, it is fun.

What is your favorite thing to do when you are not on the range or shooting?

Ride my bicycle. I like single track trail riding.

A fine cowboy right there. So proud that he was a part of the team that brought home the Trail Drive banner from the SE Regionals to Florida.
