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 ...

The day started out normal, picked up Shelleen and headed out to the Wewahootee Vigilance Committee’s monthly match. It was guess what, HOT, again, in Florida who would have thought it. Overcast for the first 4 stages and sun shining for the last 2. If you don’t know, there is nothing like leaving your long guns on the loading table in the Florida sun before you shoot the stage. Your guns get a little toasty. At least it didn’t rain on us. The match started out normal, however it ended a litt...

This past Sunday I shot with the Roughshod Raiders in Gainesville Florida. And it was as one of the starting lines was “Hot and Sticky”. It rained about 90% of the way to the range then stopped long enough for us to get in 6 stages and then it started again. It’s a bit of a drive for me but riding with my shooting buddy Shelleen made the trip go by faster, we talk about what we have been doing for practice, who John Snow is and stuff like that. We got to the range and set up our carts did our...

This past weekend I shot at the Lake County Pistoleros monthly match. After 4 weeks of no shooting the rust had built up a little. It was warm when we started and got hotter from there. But at least this range is shaded. The stages were well written and fun to shoot. Some of the starting line made the Posse Marshall blush ad we all got a laugh out of that. My first stage i think i was ready for it, 21 seconds. I had a couple 20 second stages, still trying to shoot sub 20 second stage and it f...

It sure has been a while since i blogged here. But moving forward on the site and app has sparked today's blog. Some of you may know that I attended EOT for the first time. Those that don't know End Of Trail is the Cowboy Action Shooting World Championship. Held this past June in Edgewood New Mexico. A couple firsts here I guess, first trip to NM too. Let me tell ya, we had fun. People had me worried about a few things like the altitude, seeing I'm a sea level person and the heat. Neither really...

I shot this past weekend at The Lake County Pistoleros, what a good match. The range is nice and shaded in the summer to try to beat the heat but it was still hot. I shot ok for me stages hovering around 22 or 23 seconds and 3 misses for the entire day, even though I think I had 3 on 1 stage but spotters only called 2. Sometimes it works out that way. a good bit of the shooters on my posse were shooting raw times of like 14 to 16 seconds, that made me feel a little slow. But, I played my game an...
