If there are any WAC active ROs wishing to take the CFDA range officer test to qualify for red hat status, please feel free to contact me. Membership in CFDA is required.
Upon passing of the written test, I will issue a Range Officer card which will qualify you to receive a red hat for the discipline of cowboy fast draw. Please remember that “active” WAC RO classification and active participation in the discipline itself is required.

This was one of the most balanced and entertaining monthly matches, that I have had the privilege of hosting . We have acquired a few new shooters, which have, in all honesty, bolstered my devotion to this sport. Without naming names, I just want to give a big “howdy” to a few gunfighters who have recently come on board, and who have shown amazing promise in their aptitude toward the “cowboy way”. Their desire to “participate”, and their eagerness to improve in their ability and their evident desire to learn the rules and format of our game, are quite inspiring. In any sport, it is always a “few” who do the “most”. After two years of running a club with a small number of members, it is very refreshing to have on board, a few, very inspired, “newbies.”
What a beautiful day for a gun fight. Twenty -three gunfighters lined up to put on a display of wax-slingin’, leather-slappin’, smack- talkin’ FUN that just can’t be found without a six-gun on yer side.
Members of our fast draw family from our local area, the eastern shores of our state, north Florida,and Georgia were in attendence. Even a few of our gunslingin’ brothers from Virginia left their twenty-degree homeland to make the long ride to support the sport we all love. We had a fair amount of spectator attendance as well.

Defensive Pistol – IDPA International Defensive Pistol Association
Our club participates in this shooting sport that simulates self-defensive scenarios and real life encounters. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual using common service pistols aka; your carry weapon. Frank Gaughen will instruct us ladies on this discipline. Meet at the clubhouse. Bring your personal carry pistol (UNLOADED) and a box of ammo. Ears & Eyes!!! We’ll give it a try!
The February fast draw monthly gathering of the Flatlanders Shootist Society is scheduled for Sunday, the 7th. Sign in is from 9am to 9:30am. Safety meeting at 9:45 and gunfights start as soon as rounds are drawn. Two elimination rounds at each distance of15, 18, and 21 feet, with no X-out format, and shoot-off of the top five survivors of the elimination rounds.
Match fee is $15
Be there or be somewhere wasting your time not playing with a six-gun.
The day was cool, but very comfortable shooting weather. With only five gunfighters attending, match fees were refunded, and a fun session of practice was had on four targets. It was very easy to expend 100 rounds of ammo. We just played musical lanes and moved one spot to the right after each round.
This was another one of those times where the FUN factor outweighed the competitive one.
Next monthly match will be the second anniversary match with shooters attending from….where-ever.
