Match is open to the public and to all interested cowboys/girls. Single Action Shooting Society (S.A.S.S.) membership is highly encouraged but is not mandatory.
Cowboy classification is determined by the type of single-action pistol used: modern, adjustable sights; traditional (Colts/Colt clones); duelist (one handed shooters); black powder; black powder cartridge, ladies, and juniors (age 12 - 17). Wild Bunch is determined by the modifications done to a 1911 pistol.
Current S.A.S.S. rules apply. The Spirit of the Game is mandatory. All cowboys/girls will wear cowboy hats, long sleeve shirts and long pants or dresses for ladies, and cowboy boots or leather boots (if a disability exists). Ear and eye protection for competitors/spectators are mandatory. The match is held on a "cold range." Guns are loaded and unloaded only at designated tables. All questions are to be directed to the match director.
