Rule Change 2020 - Hammer back on Rifle

December 16, 2019
SASS approved a proposed rule change when a competitor arrives at the shooting line with the hammer on the rifle cocked. The old rule was an immediate Stage DQ. In the new rule, the RO will take the rifle and point it downrange into the berm and pull the trigger.  If a shot is not fired, the competitor will be allowed to proceed.  If a shot is fired, there will be a Stage DQ.

SASS Rule Changes Effective December 7, 2015


To pass, an item must receive 66% of the votes For. Less than 66% and more than 50%, means the item failed but can be re-introduced and the next TG Summit as an agenda item.



Item 5, the Stage/Match DQ for failure to adhere to the command of "cease fire" was removed from the agenda. It was universally accepted that when a shooter willfully continues to shoot after the command "cease fire" they should be done for the day. Wording, in a c...

Long guns "closed/open" issue:  (from 11th Convention, Dec. 2013)

December Results

December 24, 2014
Saturday the 20th of December the McLean County Peacemakers held their December Match.  We had 19 cowboys and cowgirls taking time out of this busy time of year to come out and do some cowboy action shooting.

We had five stages planned and again were able to complete them all before noon.  In Stage 2, Santa was being held as a hostage.  Fortunately nobody "took him out" nor got the ten second penalty for doing so.

We had four clean shooters.  They included Billy the Avenger, Dangerous D...

November Results

November 17, 2014
Saturday the 15th of November was an unusually cold day, but we still had 15 restless cowboys and cowgirls anxious to take out some rustlers.  We had five stages planned and were able to complete them all before noon.   The stages seemed to give us some good challenges and yet we had some very fast times.  Like other sports, each individual's results can be fickle.  Things like shooting really well... Stage 1, then Stage 2 and so on until you reach Stage 5 and miss a target.  Or how ab...

Stage Trail Shootout Results

September 22, 2014
It was a beautiful morning, but we knew rain was on the way for the afternoon.  We had three posses with 39 cowboys and girls start promptly at 8:45 and we finished by a little after Noon.  The cowboys settled down to a nice lunch prepared by Sue Darnall while the scorekeepers calculated the results.

Flaming Star won the match and shot clean.  Marshal RD took Top Hand in second place and also shot clean.  Tomahawk Johnson took third with the Trail Boss award.   Taquila Tab brought it ho...

August Results

August 22, 2014
The day of our August Peacemaker's Match was rather dreary, and it looked as if it could start raining at any minute.  Despite the outlook, we had 27 shooters arrive in town to help keep the peace.  And the rain... well it held off until the last stage at which time it did drizzle a little bit.  But not bad enough for us to quit our mission.

We ran two posses.  Everyone pitched in to help and that allowed us to be done around noon time.

Marshal RD had the lowest score for the day.  Rudy ...

July Results

July 21, 2014
We had a beautiful day for a cowboy match at the McLean County Peacemakers on Saturday.  A little more breeze would have been nice, but we have to remember this is July.  And we were done before noon.  We've been trying to run leaner posses so that we can get done quicker and I think everyone likes that.  It does mean that more shooters are called upon to help out, but I hope you don't mind the trade off.

Most of the stages were pretty straight forward today.  However I understand th...
