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 September Match


The McLean County Peacemakers held its 16th annual Stage Trail Shootout on Saturday, the 16th of September.  The day started out with nice weather, but got a little warm by the time we were finished.  Still, it was a great day for a cowboy shoot!


This was our once a year event where we try to encourage additional shooters to join the regulars.  We had raffle items, awards were handed out for all classes, special awards for the top shooters and custom belt buckles for the top shooters in the larger class groups.  A great lunch was part of the package.  This year we had 35 shooters (same as last year) divided into two posses.  We started with our safety meeting at 8:30 and were done shooting by 1:00.


The overall winners included Flaming Star (Top Gun), Midnight Justice (Top Hand), Comstock Charley (Trail Boss), and Colonel Peabody (Ram Rod).  There were seven clean shooters for the match (no misses/no procedures).  They included Colonel Peabody, Comstock Charley, East Texas, Flaming Star, Marshal RD, Midnight Justice, and Tomahawk Johnson.  Congratulations to these shooters for their success. 


There is a lot of work that goes into planning for, setting up, executing, and tearing down the stages.  The club and I personally would like to thank all of those people who helped us in one way or another.  We couldn’t have done it without you!  And a big thank you to the Darnall crew for preparing our lunch, helping with setup and teardown, and the use of the range.
