Virginia Peacemakers is a sanctioned club of the Cowboy Fast Draw Association (CFDA) that is headquartered in Fernley Nevada. We are located in beautiful Amelia Court House VA, and are part of the fastest growing western shooting sport in the world.
Cowboy Fast Draw has been featured on several TV shows, especially on the Outdoor Channel. We are part of a shooting venue that relates back to the time period of 1870 to 1900 where the lore and legend of the “Gunfighter” was created. All of us grew up with memories of sitting in front of the TV watching shows like “Gunsmoke”, “Have Gun Will Travel”, “Rawhide”, and many others. In our sport, we bring that era to life in a SAFE, exciting, and competitive shooting sport. Two competitors, dressed in period “Cowboy or Gunfighter” attire will stand “side to side”, facing a 2 foot steel circle target 15 to 21 feet in front of them. They wait on the commands….“Shooters On the Line, Shooters…. Set!” Then between 2 to 5 seconds, a light in the middle of the targets will come on simultaneously and the competitors will draw, cock their single action revolvers, and shoot wax bullets at the targets. The shooter that HITS the target, with the fastest time recorded by impact sensors on the targets, wins that shot. They keep doing this until one of the shooters gets 3 winning hits and is then declared winner of that round. It is a fun, adrenaline filled shooting sport that is safe, competitive, and fun!! It is also a venue that teaches safe and proper gun handling skills in the process. You can check it out by going to the Cowboy Fast Draw Associations website at www.cowboyfastdraw.com.
