Cowboy Action at ASC

Cowboy Action News

Hey y'all: Welcome to the ASC Cowboy Action area AKA the Trinity Valley Regulators

We shoot every 3rd Sunday of the month starting at 1pm... We usually wind up around 4:30.. Please try and get there at least 15 minutes prior to the shoot so we can get you signed in.

Really want to shoot but dont have all your guns yet? No problem we really like to share! You need to bring 80 rounds of .38 lead bullets (no jacketed/clad bullets allowed) and about 20 12ga or 20ga shotgun shells, preferably featherweights but anything will do as long as its #4 or smaller..We always have extra guns with us..You do not have to be a club member to shoot matches or watch..

Not quite ready to try it?? That's ok too... Come on out and watch..
See just how fast we can miss a large metal target that is just 15 feet away!

Please contact me with any questions you have!
