Cowboy Action Shooting

Posted:

You've probably heard of cowboy action shooting.
But the group you are about to see shoot isn't at the range just to perform, but to shoot real bullets.
Reporter Sarah Gustin takes you near Moffit for the story.

"The range is gonna go hot"
It's a sport with plenty of action 
all make sure you get what you deserve! and plenty of noise. (nats)
(Tom Liebel / TwoxTom)"I started shooting. I was hooked. That is all it took."
The Dakota RoughRiders are Cowboy Action Shooters.
The group shoots guns of the Old West like single action revolvers, lever action rifles and shotguns.
(Tom Liebel / TwoxTom) "We costume up. We shoot pre 1899 firearms. We try to dress the era because it makes it more like the old times, playing cowboy when you were a kid. Us old guys we are kinda reliving our child hood. "
Tom Liebel better known as "TwoXTom" around here has been shooting for 5 years.
(Tom Liebel / TwoxTom) "Five years ago I got talked into coming and watching a cowboy shoot. I got very interested in that. The cowboys are totally friendly people. All the cowboys here. They will help you do anything you want. Teach you about firearms, teach you how to shoot." 
Mike Ripplinger better known as "Rod Iron Rip" has spent the past three and a half years shooting old guns.
(Mike Ripplinger / Rod Iron Rip)"I wish I would have found this team 20 years ago, it's been a fantastic 3 1/2 years."
It's a friendly crowd are more than willing to help even the earliest of beginners.
Sarah shooting.
(Tom Liebel / TwoxTom) "We've got junior shooters 13 years old, we have elderly statesmen in the 70s, we have shooters in the 80s, women shooters, whole families come and shoot. It's a fun sport."

The Dakota Roughriders practice at the Fried Family Marksmanship Complex 3 miles west of Moffit.
