NCOWS August Monthly Match Report

The South Carolina Old West Shootists (SCOWS) held one of its regularly scheduled “Second Sunday” match on August 13, 2023, in the Cooper Pistol Bays at the Mid-Carolina Rifle Club.

We had 5 shooters brave the forecast heat advisory to come out and shoot 4 stages based on actual gunfights from the Old West. For this match, those gunfights were all based on Kiowa raids in North Texas during the 1860s & ’70s. Luckily, we completed the match before the major heat kicked in, and, while it was still a hot morning, we all pulled through. 

There were no clean shooters for the match.

4 Gun Smokeless Duelist Outlaw

Doc WHO, 1st Place                                                    505.02
