Jes’ wanna give yuh a little info on Cowboy Action Shootin’ here at MBSC. We be the
“Cape Cod Cowboys” and give our shootin’ irons a workout at 9:00 AM year frum
March thru December (weather permittin’) on the Fourth Satirday of the month at the
range on the far left that we call “Oyster Flats”. A coupla times a year we gotta
change our schedule fer one reason or t’other, so be sure ya check the schedule
below or get on the email list for updates.
The cowpokes meet informally at the range throughout
the month to keep our shootin’ skills sharp, as well as
at special competitions. We use firearms common to
the last quarter of the 19th century, such as single
action revolvers and lever action rifles using 32 to
45 caliber ammunition and 12 to 20 gauge double
barreled or pump action shotguns.
Since we fire at close range steel targets we fire light loads in order to minimize
ricochets. Most of us load our own ammo. Safety is our prime objective and we
adhere to Single Action Shooting Society® rules. To shoot a complete scenario
you’ll need 2 single action revolvers, a lever action rifle and a shotgun all as
However, you kin start with one weapon and purchase the rest over time. Before you
buy anything we recommend that you come down to one of our monthly shoots and
see what the whole thing is all about. (Yuh kin try out sum uv our shootin’ irons!)
To complete the Old West feelin’ we wear typical cowboy clothing and set up
scenarios and stages to make it more fun. Oh yeah, a-fore I fergit, we all have aliases.
