Saturday morning was too dark and just a bit hazy for me, so I enjoyed a nice nap on the way to Eustis, courtesy of my better half, Midwest Hale. This cowboy spent a little too much time in the saloon the night before, and my other alias, Last Call, came out to play. I did awake in time to enjoy spotting some white tails while riding through the Ocala National Forest, and the sunrise over the Emeralda Marsh Conservation Area was quite stunning. What a beautiful day for shooting, I thought as ...

Saturday morning came too early for me, as usual, and I forgot to check the weather before hopping on my trusty iron horse and charging forward under sinister skies. When my eyes were finally able to focus on more than the black highway and noticed the similarly colored clouds, it was too late, and I rode forward with nothing more than prayers for sunshine and swift shooting. I received neither, however, and thus is my tale of failed transitions, fatal misses and one big fat "P"! I arrived, f...

Sticking with Florida's recent theme of "hotter than hell-fire," Hale and I found a similar environment in Valdosta this past weekend, and that carried through with the manner in which each of the thirteen shooters that were there approached the stages. As many of you know, Hale and I are going to be shooting Black Gold in Kentucky this summer, and competing with a group like the Valdosta crew was certainly great practice for the match. All of the stages were either copies or variants of stages ...

While I was shooting at the Roughshod Raider's match this past weekend, our very own Moog mentioned to me about blogging my shoots, which I thought was a great idea. So, I will try to start doing this after each weekend to talk about my continuing journey through the world of Cowboy Action Shooting. Why? you might ask. Simply because I love to shoot and I love to write and this gives me a chance to do both. So, sit back, put your clicks on (Delta Glen), and enjoy the wild ride that is my life in...

Thursday afternoon Madame Moog and I set out to meet up with the cracker crew and shoot the Georgia State Match. I tell Y’All Eddie and the boys up there sure do put on a great match. If you haven’t been you should put it on your list. Thank you Fast Eddie, Krazy Kajun, Blackhawk Henry and the set up crew for all of your hard work to make this match a success. Also, thank you to all the workin cowboys that picked brass, ran the timer, spotted, set steel or any of the other posse jobs. It really ...

To all my favorite Gunslingers, Dios mio, was Sunday's match loco, but such un buen tiempo... Okay, okay, I'll stop the Spanish, but boy, did we have some different kind of fun on Cinco de Mayo. Chicken Scratch promised and he delivered on the "everything moves" match with just a little extra, and it was awesome! Bowling with the rifle and shotgun was certainly unique and added an extra layer of challenge to the match. Some of us took it slow to make sure we got 'em all, and others threw caut...

Hailing all Gunslinger, May is here already and the ghost town is gearing up for our final match of the season. Like with all finales, we are cooking up something special for our send-off. There should be some moving targets as well as some stages to test our speed. The weather is looking a bit ominous and may rain us out on Sunday, so stay tuned just in case we need to post any updates. Chicken Scratch is our stage writer this month and has told me that we are in store for some rootin' too...

  I would like to start out by thanking Cassalong Hopidy, Hollifer A Dollar, Kay Sadeeya and anyone else that helped out. We all have our job on the posse and for the match itself.  I am thankful that we can all come together and play this game. So again, thank you to anyone that helped. You made this match successful and fun.     Last Wednesday Madame finished up her work early, I wrapped up a couple things, we loaded the truck and pointed it north for the 2019 SASS Florida State Ch...

I didn’t make a blog in February, some of the reason is I was sick and the other was I didn’t shoot well enough to comment. This month however was different. Madame Moog and I drove out to The Ides Of March on Friday the 15th to help with anything that we were needed for. I ran some side matches Madame shopped. Dinner that night with cowboy friends was nice as usual.   Saturday morning and it was time to get it done. We loaded up headed out to the range; Shelleen was our posse marshal and ...

This week was a very busy and productive one in regards to CAS.  My girlfriend, Chickie Winsome, has been talking about her interest in shooting CAS.  She comes to most of the shoots and has become our un-official photographer and my videographer.  We have somewhat half-heartedly been looking for some guns for her to buy.  But over the past few weeks she has really been shopping.  I showed her a few websites like GunBroker.com, Armlist.com, GunsAmerica.com and ye olde faithful (even if i...

This will be the first entry into what I plan on having as a weekly or so blog recapping the weekend shoots.  This weekend is as good as any to start because it was the first time I have shot in consecutive days.  I am still new to CAS attending my first match in August of last year.  I shot after the OK Corral Outlaws monthly match with the Club President Seth Adams but not during the actual match.  The first full shoot I had was in September during the Gold Coast Gunslingers Main Match....

I didn’t get out to the annual match I had planned for January because it rescheduled for the 2nd of February. So, I changed my hotel reservation to the 1st. and planning the road trip for then. That doesn’t mean nothing happened in January, actually, it was a pretty good month for Action Shooting Network (ASN). This month the Single Action Shooting Society https://www.sassnet.com plugged ASN on their Facebook and twitter accounts and increased traffic and members of ASN thanks SASS.   Als...
