See our WILD BUNCH page for details on Wild Bunch needs.
If you don't have all these firearms yet, come out anyway. Cowboys are a friendly bunch, and you might find a Cowboy willing to let you borrow a gun for a stage or two!
* Josey Wales
The stages will be set to allow for Josey Wales shooters. Josey Wales is 5 pistols instead of rifle and shotgun!
The stages will be set to allow shooting a 1911 pistol instead of your main match revolvers. Sort of a hybrid Cowboy and Wild Bunch. We will use Cowoboy rules and load 5 in each magazine.
WHEN: Saturday, October 31st, 6:00 PM registration, 6:30 Shooting!
The Black Hand Raiders are hosting our first Night Shoot! We plan to set up the range with 4-5 stages of nighttime fun! Shooting will start as close to 6:30 pm as we can get and we hope to be done by 9:30 pm.
Special Rules for the Evening
1) Please park up top and walk down. If you need assistance at the hill ring the bell or holler. Someone will help.
2) If you use a flashlight for something, please cover it with Red plastic as not to affect other's night vision
3) We are planning on 5 stages but depending on time, we may cut it short at 4 stages. There is a noise ordinance that kicks in at some point.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON COMING IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU COULD LET US KNOW (email Johnny) just in case we get a big crowd.
