The South Carolina Old West Shootists (SCOWS) held their regularly scheduled monthly “Second Sunday” match for December on Sunday, December 11, 2022, in the Cooper Pistol Bays at the Mid-Carolina Rifle Club. While the weather forecast threatened rain, we were blessed with a dry morning and early afternoon that allowed the 7 shooters who participated to shoot all 4 main stages and the bonus stage, which challenged shooters’ long-range accuracy with their pistol on a set of widely spaced static and knock-down targets. We gladly welcomed a new shooter at this match — new posse member, Rowdy McCabe, joined us for his first Cowboy Action match. 

There were no clean shooters for the match.

Private Detective (1 Pistol)

Sgt. R. Henry, 1st Place                                             48.75
