McLean County Peacemakers

The McLean County Peacemaker's Club organizes monthly cowboy action shooting matches reminiscent of the wild west of the latter 1800's.  The events are governed by the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) and are open to anyone who can handle firearms safely regardless of gender, shooting skills, or age (parental supervision is required for all competitors under 21 years of age).  Every match provides entrants with fun, shooting challenges, practicing their shooting skills, and an opportunity to build friendships among people with common interests.

McLean County Peacemakers November Match

The McLean County Peacemakers held its November match on Saturday, the 18th of November.  It seems that our November match two years ago had some really nasty weather.  Well, yesterday it was that way again.  Rain pouring down in buckets in the morning, and when the match was over it was snowing slush sideways.  And they say the high temperatures tomorrow will be in the fifties.  

Hey, despite the weather… or maybe because of it, we had 30 shooters who came out to join us in some fun cowboy shooting.  And we shot all five stages.  We were running like a well-oiled machine… shooter after shooter.  Thank you to everyone for helping us pick up after the match so quickly.  We were done and out of there by 1:00 pm so that Darnalls could open up the range to the public.


Like always, some of the group headed out to Culver’s for a bite to eat and some conversation.  And yes, it was open in spite of the construction. 

There were seven clean shooters for the match.  They included Blind Hog, Dangerous Dan McGrew, Marshal RD, Missouri Sunshine, Sheriff Boo Boo Bottom, Taquila Tab, and Tomahawk Johnson.  Congratulations cowboys and cowgirls. 

Midnight Justice won the overall match with a 12.6 second lead.  Coming in second to fifth place was Marshal RD, Comstock Charley, Taquila Tab, and Arkansas Lew with only a 3.24 second total spread.  Very nice shooting cowboys.  Congratulations to all shooters for their participation and sportsmanship.
