May is Josey Wales Month for Bend of Trail participants. Outlaw Josey Wales is a 1976 American Western film that was set during and after the American Civil War. It was directed by and starred Clint Eastwood (as Josey Wales). RRRC Posse members are offered the option of competing either in a traditional Cowboy Action Shooting™ format, or in a simultaneously held “Josey Wales Match.” The primary difference is that, based upon a scene where Josey takes on outlaws with 4 revolvers, JW participants use 4 revolvers and engage pistol AND rifle targets. As an added wrinkle, in recent years we have added a lever action rifle to the four pistols and shotgun…makes life interesting, and a lot of rounds go down range. Our next match is on Sunday, June 28th. Come join us for one of the funnest things around.
Pig Iron Lane and his lead slingin’ companion, Witch Doctor, galloped into town from down Atlanta way and took the regular CAS honors this month, followed by Badlands Buggs and BuenaVista Kid. Witch Doctor was fourth overall and took top Lady’s honors. Over on the Josey Wales side of things, Doc McWane took first place followed by Rowe-A-Noc and Gun Em Down.
