Make It Your Own Ammo Box

New Ammo Boxes will be available for customizing, re-painting, decorating & blinging out. Camo green may not be for you so change it. Surprised the manufacturers haven’t gotten in on this yet. Particularly since so many women are shooting guns. Bring your own supplies, baubles, paint etc., I’ll have some supplies available as well as a glue gun. I’m working with Bass Pro in Brandon to purchase the new boxes, (old, used boxes have oil on them & stuff may not stick).

Wednesday August 10,   6-8pm

Custom Ear Protection – Joe Zawacki will be making “Ears – Custom Ear Protection” for us. Tired of wearing ear muffs? A few minutes aren’t bad, but shoot for an hour or so, brain pain??? This ear protection is a made specifically for your ear. A process that molds to your ear is reusable and will last for years. Cost $50.00 (Cash Please) For more information, give me a call.

Ladies, we do “Pot Luck” dinner at our get-to-gethers. If you can bring something, we appreciate it, no worries if you can’t. Life & Work gets in the way sometimes and we ALWAYS have enough!!

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 CFDA 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.

Flatlanders April match

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.”

Flatlanders anniversary match is in the books

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.
