I will be setting up the range on Friday June 8th at 5pm.
WD will be shooting Saturday June 9th, (I here that’s one of the best days of the year) …. Anyway, we traded weekends with DHSS so we could present the search and rescue teams and sheriff’s office that headed up the search for our dear cowboy friend Johnny Lake. We will be presenting them with a check from donations we raised and they will be joining us for the shoot. That means put on your best cowboy attire and bring extra guns and ammo so we can show them the cowboy way and facilitate them during our shoot.
Well we have covered a lot of movies over the past year but I haven’t used this one. It may not be a “train robbery” but it is definitely one of the greatest train westerns. This month we are building our scenarios around the epic movie 3:10 to Yuma. This movie has it all, heroes, posses, banks, robberies, bad guys and TRAINS!!! If you haven’t seen it before you need to give it a look. The bad guy uses a pistol called the “hand of god” if that’s not terrifying I don’t know what is. The premise of the move is Rancher Dan Evans heads into Bisbee to clear up issues concerning the sale of his land when he witnesses the closing events of a stagecoach robbery led by famed outlaw Ben Wade. Shortly thereafter, Wade is captured by the law in Bisbee, and Evans finds himself one of the escorts who will take Wade to the 3:10 to Yuma train in Contention for the reward of $200. Evans's effort to take Wade to the station is in part an effort to save his land but also part of an inner battle to determine whether he can be more than just a naive rancher in the eyes of his impetuous and gunslinging son William Evans. The transport to Contention is hazardous and filled with ambushes by Indians, pursuits by Wade's vengeful gang and Wade's own conniving and surreptitious demeanor that makes the ride all the more intense.
We will only be shooting 4 stages so we can get all the new shooters threw as well as doing a fun pocket pistol and Derringer side match. Again please bring any extra ammo and guns you have, it will help make the day go smoother and, as always, exemplifies the cowboy way.
Here are the stages for Saturday. We are also planning on shooting a Speed pistol side-match, the twist (you have to shoot all three styles, duelist, traditional and gunfighter).
