And cowgirlsno this isn't the sf upcoming western movie.
It's cowboy action shooting at jackson county sports park.
And for one of the cowboy's out there today, once you start, it's hard to stop.
Jedidiah knight says, "and he said, 'you're not going to believe this, they shoot old west guns and dress like cowboys and it's a competition.'
And that was '98 or '99 and i've been shooting cowboy ever since."
Cowboys and cowgirls rotate between pre-1900 pistols, rifles and shotguns and shoot targets down range.
It looked like everyone was having a lot of fun, so i just had to try it.
Knight says, "you'll start with them in your holster like so.
You pull it out, cock and fire.
Nice firm grip."
Nat pop - gunshots knight says, "let's do that with the rifle show off."
Knight says, "tight into your shoulder and then, three fingers, rack it, squeeze the trigger, rack it, squeeze the trigger.
You're shooting a little high."
Nat pop - gunshots knight says, "this is a double barrell shotgun.
It's got no hammers on it.
It's a single trigger so you're just going to load it, squeeze let go, squeeze let go.
Tight into your shoulder, lean into it, squeeze the trigger."
Nat pop - gunshots at the end of the day, it didn't matter who had the best times.
The group just enjoys each others company and that's what keeps them coming back.
Knight says, "first and foremost for me it's the camraderie.
Even if i wasn't shooting i'd come out and hang out with these guys.
We're--it's like your extended family."
Tom houston says, "it's the camraderie that's 50%, sometimes more than 50% of the fun of this whole thing."
They'll be back out at jackson county sports park this upcoming saturday.
