Introduction to Cowboy Action Shooting Class, Sunday November 16th

The Caballeros are hosting an Introduction to Cowboy Action Shooting on the 3rd SUNDAY of November (the 16th). This is a wonderful opportunity for a shooter to be introduced to the firearms, rules, and procedures of the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS). This introduction is intended for experienced shooters who are already proficient in safe firearm handling, though not necessarily familiar with the firearms used in Cowboy Action Shooting.

Prior to participating in the Introduction, participants will need to complete and sign a liability release. Releases can be mailed/emailed the form in, or brought on the day of the class. We do ask that you let Doc Crumley ( know you plan to attend, so we can get an accurate headcount. Fees for the day are $25 for adults and $15 for juniors.  Registration fees may be sent with the registration form or paid the day of, by cash or check.

At the conclusion of the class, you will receive a coupon good for one free match at the Tejas Caballeros ($20 value).

Whoopin’ Scores


Whoopin’ was a blast this year. Lady B, Marshall John Henry put on a great event. The Cabs would like to say a big “thank you” to Lynn Schmob, Barely There, Coo, and all the other folks who came out and helped get the range ready, get the lunches ready, and helped in so many other ways. We couldn’t have done it without ya’ll.

Whoopin’ Early Registration Extended

Cabs and Friends,

The Whoopin’ Match Directors have decided that they want to extend Early Registration until Oct 14th, with one caveat: if you want a personalized Whoopin’ shooter badge, you MUST have your registration submitted and paid by October 4th. If you register at the range on the day of Whoopin’, the full $115 fee will be assessed, so get ‘em in early.

If you are shooting with the Green Mountain Regulators this weekend and want to register, see El Sabre for a copy of the registration form (he’ll also gladly accept registration money). We’ll also have a representative at the Plum Creek match on the 4th. And remember, that will be the last day to register and get a personalized Whoopin’ shooter badge.
