Cowboy Action Shooting

The Cowboy Action Shooting program offers a fun and safe introduction to cowboy action shooting with pistols, rifles, and shotguns. In various old-time western scenarios, Scouts play “good guys” who prove their accuracy by shooting at things like spinning metal targets where they hit the spinner to “ring the bell.” All shooters choose their own cowboy action names before starting so the NRA instructors—dressed in cowboy attire—can call them by those names.

YOUTH REQUIREMENTS: Boy Scouts and Venturers who are over the age of 14, or are 13 and have completed the eighth grade, may participate in this special evening activity. All youth participants are required to have a signed waiver from their parent or guardian before they can take part in the program.
