Cooper Pistol Bays


NCOWS uses rules similar to SASS Cowboy matches, with greater attention to historical accuracy concerning our weapons and clothing regarding period-correct detail. We shoot in 2, 3 and 4-gun classes. Generally, any pre-1900 pistol, rifle in pistol caliber, and/or shotgun may be used. These can be originals in serviceable condition or reproductions. Additionally, we shoot smokeless and black powder. New participants are given generous allowances, since we realize it takes a long time to acquire needed clothing and accoutrements. Gun carts are optional, rifle racks are provided. There is no overall winner in NCOWS matches; each class is judged independently.

Match fee is $15.00 ($8.00 for first match, no charge for age 12 and under). If anyone is interested in NCOWS, or in shooting one of our matches, please contact Henry Schlein (aka, “Sgt. Rick Henry”) at 843-821-9999 or e-mail [email protected]. Please come and check us out; or better yet, join in the fun. No need to be shy, we are a very friendly and family oriented group.

The match typically uses 2 bays, leaving 4 bays open for club members during the match.  Club memember can shoot in the bays not used by the match. The NCOWS match uses 2 of the pistol bays, but the competition scenarios start ending at 2 pm and all bays are usually open for members use by 3 pm.
