Cowboy Action

Five armed cowboys in period garb in front of the stockade entrance

The Mansfield Marauders Cowboy Action Shooting events are similar to Civil War re-enactments but with a Cowboy theme and live ammo.  In a Cowboy match you shoot steel targets using two single-action “six guns”, a lever-action rifle & a “scattergun” shotgun.  All firearms are period-correct – pre-1900.

The Mansfield Marauders cowboy action shooting events are governed by SASS Rules (Single Action Shooting Society) and period dress is requested.

Organizers: Cowboys Boss Drover ( & Leadslinger Lesky. Contact Lesky ( for more information.
