We had a great practice shoot today at Thorn Valley Shootist Society. Only four club shooters, but we had some visitors. Our home range is at the Rustic Sky Horse Camp, an equestrian destination inn Melder, LA. The owner believes that horses, trail riding, and equestrian activities are almost a perfect fit with Cowboy Fast Draw shooting, and he lets us use a barn there as our home range.
Occasionally we have equestrians walk up to the range, wondering what is going on. We greet them warmly, explain our game, and if they're willing, strap them up and let them try it. Today was such a day. Two horse-riders walked over to the barn to see what we were doing. Callie, and Jason. We took a few minutes to explain the game, give then a quick safety briefing, and strapped them up.
That's how you build a club. Two members at a time. When you can get a husband/wife team shooting together, it's a great thing.
