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.

July Match


The McLean County Peacemakers held its July 2016 match on Saturday, the 15th.  What a beautiful day to be outdoors doing anything.  For some of us it was a beautiful day for a cowboy shoot.  We had 30 shooters who came out to demonstrate their shooting skills.


We shot in two possess.  Thank you to everyone for helping with timing, spotting, scoring and picking up after the match


Midnight Justice won the overall match followed by Comstock Charley in second place and Taquila Tab in third place.    Congratulations cowboys. 

We had one clean shooter.  Congratulations to Ballard Kid for that honor.

The scores for the event are attached and posted on our website.  Several of you have asked if there is a way to see scores by class or category.  It so happens that ACES (our scoring software) gives us a “Results” report of “Category by Time”.  That report has also been attached to this email.  We’ll be working to find a place for that report on our website. 

After the match, a group of us headed out to our lunch stand by, Culvers (I know, it’s getting boring, but we haven’t found an alternative yet.), where we analyzed our days shooting skills and blunders. 

Remember, we welcome comments on our matches… things we’ve done right… things we could improve on… things you would like to see.

Thank you for joining us at our match.  We hope to see you at our August match on Saturday, August the 19th.
