Flatlanders fast draw 3rd Anniversary Match

Twenty-one gunfighters and numerous family members attended the third anniversary match of the Flatlanders Shootist Society.

Food and drinks were shared by all as the awards for the top seven gunslingers were given. In addition to the plaques for the top seven match finishers,  Shanendoah Drifter accepted the award for Top Gun for the 2016 shooting season.

We look forward to the sharing of friendship and good times with all of our fastdraw friends in the upcoming 2017 season.

Our heartfelt  thanks goes out to all that helped make this past year possible

Flatlanders February monthly match results

The February gunfight consisted of nine gunslingers. A lot of cheer and sharing of laughs and friendships.  A  great deal of improvement is being shown by our newer gunfighters. The spread between times and hit ratios is getting tighter and tighter. The closer the time-spread, the better the gunfights get, and we are getting into some VERY tight gun battles. Severel rounds were decided with shot spreads of under .005th of a second, and two of those were .001th. One round was a dead even tie in the low fives.

Very successful September fast draw match

What an awesome day of friendly gunfights ! “Friendly gunfights”; now there is a catchy phrase. Before posting the final results of the shoot-off, I want to lay some really cool numbers on ya:

Of all the recorded hits of the entire match, including the magnificent seven, FORTY PERCENT were fives and under!

Of all the recorded hits of the entire match, only ELEVEN were in the eights and over ! And three of those eleven were slip=hammers.

This was one of the closest matches recorded to date as far as competition was concerned. And one of the most fun. Holding true to the CFDA  motto of safety first, fun second, and competition third. Now for the final results:

(1st)Shenandoah Drifter (2nd)Renegade Dave (3rd)Hafta B. Fast (4th)Ruthless Rick (5th)Seminole Slim (6th)Dough Boy (7th)Ace

Great job gunfighters ! You are giving me something to work at when I make my comeback !                                     Yusta B. Fast
