Welcome to "Cowgirls only" courtsey of:

Addie Tude and Grizzly Belle

..

and the Cowgirls of Leadville



"Cowgirl Action Shooting " comes of age

When I started out in Cowboy action shooting about 1996, there were only a few gals in the game. Mostly they were regular shooters whose husbands also were cowboy shooters. We saw them at most every match and they were by and large competent shooters. Well ladies. . . Let me tell you things have changed!

I suppose some of it is because of the sheer number of SASS members. My badge # is 9505. Addie started shooting about 2 yrs ago and her badge is in the low 48 thousands, and now SASS boasts well over 50,000 members. And there are COWGIRLS everwhere. SASS has no exact count but, estimate there may be as much of 20% of the memeber are of the fairer gender. WOW! There are wives, daughters, moms, grandmom and yes unattached single gals too. All shootin' CAS and lovin' it. The gals are shooting in all classes from junior thru Ladies Elder Senior. It's now unusual to see a possee with a 1/3rd of it members being cowgirls.

Shooting gear is being made especially for the ladies, i.e smaller and lighter belts, contoured for a good fit. there are pistols such as Rugur's 32 H&R Mag. Single-sixes that seem to be just the ticket for the gals with smaller hands. Winchester's AA low noise/low recoil 12ga target loads make shooting the shotgun a piece of cake ladies. Addie at 5'1" never misses a beat with her Norenco '97.

Information of all kinds is out there too. There are at least 3 magaizine devoted to women shooters (I read them too) They are: Women & Guns Magazine", Shooting for Women" and the NRA"s Womens Outlook. All carry feature articles and column fodevoted to Cowgirl Shooters. Legal issues for womens along with the latest shooting gear are in amost every issue. You can preview and order any through any of their websites:
