July 2022 NCOWS Match Report

The South Carolina Old West Shootists (SCOWS) held their regularly scheduled monthly “Second Sunday” match for July on Sunday, July 10, 2022, in the Cooper Pistol Bays at the Mid-Carolina Rifle Club.  Because of threatening weather, the match was shortened to 3 main stages, which were based on events that occurred in the Old West during the mid to late 19th Century and a bonus stage, courtesy of Cheyenne Jim, where shooters had to test their proficiency with their rifle. Unfortunately, the aforementioned threat of rain arrived right in the middle of the bonus stage, and only about half of the shooters were able to complete the bonus stage. 

Seven (7) shooters braved the rainy weather forecast and came out to shoot on a warm (but not exceedingly hot) VERY humid and grey day.
