Cowboy Action Shooting requires competitors to dress in the style of clothing used in the 1800’s along with using the firearms of the mid to late 1800’s. Competitors shoot real guns with real lead bullets at steel targets under timed conditions. The parent organization, the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) was started by “Judge Roy Bean” in the early 1980’s with a few friends and today has well over 100,000 members around the world. The sport centers around Cowboy Action shooting clubs who operate on mostly privately owned shooting ranges, but there are clubs on public ranges as well. Cowboy Action shooting has several shooting categories that cover everyone and all styles of shooting. The Siuslaw River Rangers was started by John & Kelty La Rocco AKA Johnny Jingos and Miss Annie Odem and John Soaper AKA Soapy Deal in 2002 and started with seven shooters that year.
