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.
Due to Irma this months match is cancelled. See you all next month.
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. All firearms must have a flag in place during a cold range. If you do not have one, we have them for $1 at the shack.
