If the Old West holds a special place in your heart you've come to the right place. We're a Cowboy Action Shooting™ Club sanctioned by the Single Action Shooting Society, an international organization created to preserve and promote the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting™. We dress in period clothing and hold monthly shooting matches using pistols, rifles and shotguns of the Old West (or modern replicas thereof) at our range called Bordertown in Bulls Gap, Tennessee . We love visitors... come watch a match!
Next GCR Match Is June 22nd
Registration begins at 8:30 and ends at 9:15. A mandatory safety meeting gets underway around 9:20 and the match starts at 9:30 (or there abouts). Ideally you should be registered by 9:15 to shoot the match. There is a ten dollar fee for GCR members, 15 for non-members and if you're a first time SASS shooter there is no charge.
As a rule we shoot regardless of the weather. We have two stages that allow shooters to load, shoot and unload under roof. We utilize these to shoot all five stages when the weather is very bad. If we feel that predicted weather conditions will make the range unsafe or if there is some other reason a match has to be cancelled we will post notification on the front page of this web site and on the Message Board the moment a decision to cancel is made. We will also e-mail everyone whose e-mail address is on file. Feel free to call a Club Officer for confirmation when in doubt.
June 19th - This Day In History
1881- Texas- Texas Ranger John B. Jones passed away in Austin. He was born in South Carolina on Dec. 22, 1834, and was four when his family resettled in Travis County, Texas. After serving in the Confederate Army in the Civil War, Jones was elected to the Texas legislature in 1868. He was later commissioned a major in the Frontier Battalion of the Texas Rangers and he became one of the leading law enforcement administrators in Texas, commanding six companies of Rangers and sending them across thousands of miles to battle outlaws and Indians. Jones was involved with a number of gun battles with outlaw bands and he was responsible for bringing the bloody Horrell-Higgins Feud to an end.
Wild Bunch Matches
SASS sanctioned Wild Bunch matches were designed to recreate the era depicted in Sam Peckinpah's 1969 film. They differ from traditional SASS matches in dress code, weapons, rules and ammo. For a complete list of the rules and regulations Click here
