Last Saturday, I shot my second “Urban Cowboy” match. It’s a discipline that our local club developed a couple of years ago. It is shot on our CAS range, with the same setups from the previous weeks SASS shoot. Basically we have seven stages and shoot 20 rounds/stage. We shoot it with .22 semi-autos. They take the total time for all seven stages, and add 5 seconds for ever miss. You would be amazed how easy it is to miss a 12 inch steel plate at 10 yards.

We had 12 competitors, and I thought I was running about 4th or 5th place. At the awards ceremony, we had one guy that shot a clean match…absolutely no misses…great job. The RO awarded his ribbon first. Then she said, “Now, our first place winner with a total of 110 points….and she called my name. I could not believe it….I, of course was very happy. This was only the second match that I’ve shot. She later showed me my scorecard, and I had shot 5 clean stages, and my times were running about 2nd overall.

Hope I don’t sound like I’m bragging, because that is not my intent…I’m just really happy that I can still shoot. I was shooting my 22/45 MKIII Hunter, with 4 ½” barrel….this gun just keeps getting better….I have about 1000 rounds through it now. Just thought I would share that…..

Sounds like you're a winner to me! Wish there was something like that around here. A couple time there have been groups try to start up a CAS or SASS range but the legal beagles and the insurance has "shot" it down every time. Can't even find any open range to go to shoot tin cans anymore.

.22 matches probably will continue to gain in popularity for a bunch of reasons

they are recoil friendly
they are ammo price friendly
most folks already own a .22 of some sort
everyone--husband, wife, old, and young can enjoy it

the smaller the caliber the better shot you have to be, example break the ten ring line its a ten ring. The caliber 45 ya just about fit 2 22's in the whole. In sass it has to ring steel a 38 barely hittin doesn't ring steel but a 45 will. Then 12 inch plates look big until that timer goes off, then fer some reson they become 4 or 5 inch's and some times seem like they are 100 yrads away- especially when ya miss them lol.
