Cowboy action shooting matches are held on the 4th Sunday of each month on the Black Powder Range at 10:00 a.m. 

Firearms and dress must be of the Old West Era: single action revolvers, lever action rifles, and side by side shotguns or pump/exposed hammer shotguns.

The participants need to have 2 single-action revolvers, one lever action rifle of pistol caliber (.38special, .45LC), and one shotgun no smaller than 20 Ga. Ammunition requirements are 125 rounds pistol/rifle and 25 or more shotgun. The pistol/rifle bullets have to be cast lead (copper coated, jacketed, FMJ are not allowed).

The shoots are medium sized with, on average, 15 to 20 participants. Cowboys/Cowgirls shoot six different stages with one shooter shooting at one time, against the clock.

The targets are set at a close range; there is never a target too big or too close to miss. A miss adds 5 seconds onto the shooter's time. The only participants allowed to have ammunition in their firearms are the current shooter and those at the loading table.

Everyone at a cowboy action shooting event who is able to work is encouraged to help out. There are jobs for spotters,  brass-pickers, scorers, and at the unloading table. Spectators and participants are required to have eye and ear protection and adhere to safe firearm handling practices at all times.
