The South Carolina Old West Shootists (SCOWS) held their regularly scheduled monthly “Second Sunday” match for September on Sunday, September 11, 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 `late 19th Century and a bonus stage which challenged shooters’ pistol skills on the shotgun and rifle targets. Special thanks to Moonshine, who, in his role as Deputy Posse Marshal, stepped in and ran a great match in Sgt. Henry’s absence.
We had 5 shooters for the match. There was 1 clean shooter this month — Congrats to Moonshine for hitting everything he aimed at and doing so pretty darned quick!
Here are the match results, by category:
MoonShine, 1st Place 122.04
Elder 4 Gun Smokeless Shootist
Manassas, 1st Place 472.49
3 Gun Smokeless Shootist
Youghiogheny Kid, 1st Place 234.50
Elder 3 Gun Black Powder Duelist
Cheyenne Jim, 1st Place 287.37
Elder 4 Gun Smokeless Duelist (Outlaw)

Congratulations to all, and thanks to everyone for a great match.
REMINDERS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS:
The next SCOWS match will be our October “2nd Sunday” match on Sunday, October 9, 2022. Hope to see you there!
And a reminder to MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! The dates for the 2022 American Frontier & Wild West Festival in Aiken, SC (aka the Aiken Wild West Fest) have been confirmed for November 5 & 6, 2022. The South Carolina Old West Shootists will have a presentation table for both days of the event, and it is highly likely that more than a few members of our posse will be participating in the reenactments of various shoot-outs that are scheduled for the weekend and may be making a presentation or two on the main stage. Hope y’all can make it out for all of the fun and history.
