The Orygun Cowboys host regular SASS (Single Action Shooting Society) matches at Tri County Gun Club in Sherwood, Oregon. Our club is located in an urban environment and TCGC requires that all match participants be proficient in safe firearm handling and specific TCGC procedures. If you are new to Cowboy Action Shooting and/or TCGC, we will mentor you through your first match or until you reach proficiency.
The firearms used are originals or replicas from the 1800’s with shooters typically using two single action revolvers, a lever action rifle, and a period shotgun of choice (double barrel or pump). In each match, participants choose a competition category based on age, shooting style, ammo (smokeless or black powder), gender, or attire.
Targets are set and a timed scenario is presented. Time penalties are added to raw times for each target missed or for a scenario procedural violation. Time bonuses are sometimes subtracted from the raw times for specific target accuracy. Our sport uses live ammunition and most targets are made from steel plates that either “ring” or react when hit. Because we place these targets at fairly close range, we require that only lead ammo and not any type of jacketed ammo be used.
Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS) is more than just a competitive shooting sport. Our cowboy “family” offers many opportunities to get involved socially, volunteer, and share your skills and knowledge for the benefit of our cowboy community and our sport. And CAS matches are hosted all over the the US and the world creating opportunity to travel and meet new folks while engaging in challenging competition.
Playing cowboy and having fun are the main ingredients in this sport! Our Old west style clothing sets us apart from the rest of the shooting sports with the costuming options being endless. Whether emulating Hollywood legends or infamous old west characters, each shooter creates his or her own persona to relive the Old West.
Cowboy Action Shooting is one of the fastest growing shooting sports today!
This family activity offers something for everyone; the thrill and challenge of friendly competition, fellowship with like-minded firearm enthusiasts, and the opportunity to dress up in your favorite western outfit and indulge your dreams of being at “home on the range”.
Getting started in this sport is easy and is just a phone call away.
