We hold monthly matches on the 3rd Sunday of each month
beginning in March and going through December at Crooked Creek,
Our Cowboy Range that is for members only.
The Gateway Shootist Society is affiliated with the National Rifle
Association and we are a Single Action Shooting Society organization.
Our shoots are conducted by using the SASS rules and guidelines,
and you can see us listed in the "SASS Cowboy Chronicle".
It's a chance to enjoy the fastest growing shooting sport!
We all enjoy watching western movies and TV shows, so why not be that
individual, where all the cowboys and cowgirls dress up in the garb of the old
west. You can be a lawman, dentist, military soldier, preacher, trapper,
villain, banker, bartender or saloon girl. It's your choice of character.
Our monthly match consist of 5 stages, all with very good stories and
scenarios for all. These could be from movies or real events.
(prox. 50 rounds-pistol, 50 rounds-rifle, 20-25 rounds shotgun)
Side matches will vary month to month.
If there happens to be any changes to this schedule, see the events page.
Every once in awhile, we take a break from the big guns and have
some 22 Matches.
A lot of fun with the smaller caliber, and no shotguns!
For some excitement and challenge, try the Indiana Jones Matches.
The dress up is great and so is the shooting!
We have also added the Wild Bunch shooting Matches, which have gotten very popular.
See the events tab for more information on all of these shooting matches.
Our range opens at 8:30 am with safety meeting at 9:00 am and
shooting starts at 9:30 am.
