Cowboy Action Shooting and 2016 Schedule

Cowboy Action Shooting

One of our favorite activities around here (besides Trap and Plinking) is Cowboy Action Shooting! Not to be confused with "quick draw", Cowboy Action Shooting utilizes live ammunition, steel targets, multiple firearms (revolvers, rifle, shotgun) and a whole lot of 1880's era hoo-ya.

If you're not familiar with the sport, then check out the description on our Intro to Cowboy Action Shooting Class page.

But if you are a cowboy shooter.... then this is the club you want to shoot with.


Every third Sunday of the month, our PSC Northfield Raiders host an exciting and friendly match. The match starts at 9:00am; and the shooting usually wraps up around 1:30-ish. The Shooters meeting starts a bit earlier, around 8:30am (so you want to arrive not later than 8:30). But if you feel like having a hot breakfast, checking out the vendors, and saying hi to all of your fellow shooters -- then show up even earlier!

A hearty plate of grub (eggs, pancakes, bacon, etc) is served up at our own Sidewinder Cafe  starting around 7:30 or so. Only costs a few bucks, and is way better than the places on the road. After the match, sit down at the Sidewinder for a hot lunch and to hear the scores.

Our matches consist of 8 creative stages, shot over 4 pistol bays. We average around 60 shooters, so that amounts to around 4 posses.cowboy_rifle_350

In addition to having our own outdoor cookshack, PSC offers real flush toilets with sinks and running water (none of those city slicker plastic port-a-johns). Plenty of on-site free parking, so your car and extra gear are readily accessible during the match. We even have limited provision for overnite campers/RV's.

Although the Panorama Sportsmans Club is a private facility and normally closed to outsiders, our Sunday Cowboy Action matches are OPEN TO EVERYONE!  SASS rules apply, but you don't have to be a member of SASS to shoot with us. Match registration fee is only $20 per shooter (no charge for non-shooting spectators). Leashed pets are okay, so long as they are used to gunfire.

Please note that this is a COLD range... stage your long guns in your guncarts UNLOADED with ACTIONS OPEN. You may wear your sixguns, but keep them UNLOADED. Firearms are loaded only at the loading table at the firing line; and must be verified as UNLOADED before you exit the firing line of each stage. Only registered shooters may wear holstered guns. But if you have ever shot at a SASS match before, then you know all of these rules. (We had to include this paragraph for the newbies.)

  • Dec 18, 2016

What you'll need: at least 80 rds of pistol and 80 rds of rifle (8 stages, each requiring 10 rds pistol & 10 rds rifle per stage), plus around 50 rds of shotgun. We love to shoot lots of shotgun knock-downs, and average 4+ per stage. The plus means that if you miss, you reload and try again until you knock it down!

For more information, contact our cowboy committee:   Desperado or Gunhawk.


Vendors are welcome to set up free of charge!
