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 !

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.
Five gunfighters from the WAC cowboy fastdraw posse made the trek to Bunnell Florida to participate the Florida State and Eastern US Territory CFDA Championships. The Flatlanders Shootist Society was privileged to provide the second range needed for the 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
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.
Friends from across the state make the trek west to the WAC to share their love for fast draw with the Flatlanders Shootist Society. Slim Jim Garrett and his lovely wife Ruby Garrett arrived in Saint Petersburg on Saturday to share some good social times and some mighty fine gunfighting with the members of the Flatlanders.
