Where do you live? (what state or country)

Chapin South Carolina

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

I started CAS in New Jersey in 2001. I found this sport on the internet. I was looking for Old West clothing to be more period correct for a Halloween Party. I found the Gunfighter Zone and Cowboy Fast Draw there, But there was no place near me that had Fast Draw. In searching around i found Sass. That was it. I contacted Ben Colley of the Jackson Hole Gang in Jackson NJ and after bending his ear for a few hours i decided i would like to try this.

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

Ben Colley was the Territorial Governor of the JHG and he helped me get started. My mentors were the entire gang of CAS shooters. The help I received in the first few months was what has kept me in the game for all these years.

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

600-1000 rounds. It was more before the pandemic caused primer shortages. I hope to get back to doing more practice firing.

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

I have won 4 New Jersey Men's State Championships. I have won 1 top gun at the Delaware State Championship. I won my Category State Championship in South Carolina in 2021.

Tell us about your most memorable match:

My Most memorable match was when I won my first NJ Purgatory in the Pines State Championship. This is because i won this and my Wife Dancin Angel Won the NJ Ladies Championship. So winning a championship together is my best memory.

What is your favorite aspect of CAS?

Shooting guns!! Mostly the people and friends i have made all over this great country of ours and my good friend Mountain George from Germany. The people in this sport are the greatest.

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

When I joined SASS in 2000 there was no internet look ups you sent in 3 names to see which were available. My first attempt none were. So i liked the sound of Jesamy Kid. Jesamy Design LLC is the name of my company. Which came from my daughters names Jes and Amy.

Do you have a travel/shootin buddy? (you know that friend that makes this game what it is)

Dancin Angel, Pecos Pav, Big Whiskey, Jersey Sue, Peacemaker Reb, Kid Ray, Sue Render and the list goes on there are so many the we travel with now the list is long. But the one i have always traveled with is Dancin Angel

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

I have no favorites i love them all. But i was involved with Purgatory in the Pines the SASS NJ State Championship for 16 Years so that's kind of t top.

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

I shoot 2 handed mostly now in my age category. I shot gunfighter for 4 years and will still shoot that category on occasion. I like shooting All around Cowboy when it comes around.

What is you posse job of choice?

TO most of the time but i will do what ever is needed.

What is the time of your fastest clean stage?

For a 10-10-4 + with movement 15.36

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

So many people have helped me over the years and shooters still through out advice now.

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

Y'all will have the time of your life. Come out have fun and don't worry about speed or being clean just come out and shoot safe the rest will come in time.

What keeps you playing this game?

The Cowboys and Cowgirls. In Cowboy Action, Life Is Good!!!

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

Woodworking is my other hobby I love cabinet making and furniture making. Its not just a job its a passion.
