NCOWS June 2022 Monthly Match Report

The South Carolina Old West Shootists (SCOWS), our local NCOWS posse, held their regularly scheduled monthly “Second Sunday” match for June on Sunday, June 12, 2022, in the Cooper Pistol Bays at the Mid-Carolina Rifle Club.  As usual, the match consisted of 4 main stages, which were based on events that occurred in the Old West during the mid to late 19th Century. There was also a bonus stage, courtesy of Cheyenne Jim, where shooters, from a distance of 15-20 yards, shot 5 rifle rounds at a board to which playing cards were attached, face down, and then the cards which were hit were then turned over, and scores were added up and subtracted from the shooter’s total time — it was a fun, challenging, and almost totally luck-driven bonus stage which everyone seemed to really enjoy.

We had 11 shooters and 1 guest who did not shoot the match (but hopefully will join us as a shooter in the future) come out on a scorching day. There were no clean shooters this month.
