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.

Peacemakers October Match

The McLean County Peacemakers held its October match on Saturday, the 20thth of October.  Participation in our cowboy shoots is always dependent upon the weather.  The weather reports for Saturday were cool temps, but the wind speed was to increase in the afternoon.  By the time we got to the “Hole in the Wall”, the wind was really blowing out of the north west.  It was dang windy and we all got a little bit cold.  We had seventeen cowboys and cowgirls show up to compete.  When we shot stages 1,2, and 5, we had some protection from the wind and it was pleasant.

We want to thank our stage authors for their contributions (Arizona Buffalo Joe, Tomahawk Johnson, Comstock Charley, Prairie Trail Ranger, and Sheriff Boo Boo Bottom).  And we thank those who helped set up on Friday night (Arizona Buffalo Joe, Black Oak Bill, Comstock Charley, and Prairie Trail Ranger).

The top overall winners for the event were Flaming Star in first place, Comstock Charley in second place, and Marshal RD in third place.  There were three clean shooters for the match… Flaming Star, Marshal RD, and R Lee Rattlesnake.  Congratulations on your marksmanship!

The scores for the event are posted on this website.  You will find both the overall results by time and another report of time by category.

We hope that you will come back and join us in November.
