Flatlanders show their skills at the Cracker Cowboys third annual match in Bunnell, Florida

The trek to Bunnell paid off with the collection of the top loot by three gunfighters from the Flatlanders Shootist Society. The first place was taken by Hafta B.Fast, second place by Yusta B. Fast, and that sneaky gunfighter we call Seminole Slim, slippped in there to snag the loot for third place. Something must be going right in that Flatlanders camp !

WAC gunfighters make KY aware that we are here in Florida.

The second  cowboy fast draw club in the state of Florida was formed in the autumn of 2013 and titled the Flatlanders  Shootist Society. This past weekend, as Hurricane Irma was wreaking havoc on our state, four gunfighters from the Flatlanders made the northern trek to Hartford Kentucky to compete in the Kentucky state championship of cowboy fast draw. Here are their accomplishments:

Hafta B. Fast……..2nd in shootist, 3rd in catagory and 33rd overall men

Seminole Slim………7th in catagory, and 18th overall men

Yusta B. Fast……….3rd in catagory and 29th overall men

2buck Chuck……….5th in shootist, 1st in catagory, and  4th overall men

The sport of cowboy fast draw has doubled in membership since the inception of the Flatlanders, as is expected to double again in the next sixteen months. The Outdoor Channel will be covering our  world championship in October in Fallon, Nevada, which always gives rise to the increase in membership through their fantastic exposure of our sport.

 

Public Range Open for Labor Day

The public line will be open from 9AM until 1PM on Monday, Sept 4th, Labor Day. Remember, all firearms must be cased to bring into the facility and leave your firearms in your car until the line is hot. We now have a “flag” safety rule for all guns when the range is cold.
