 Welcome to Rio Salado Vaqueros Cowboy Fast Draw                                

      Division of Rio Salado Sportsman's Club

Our club is a newly established club, July 2011, however Cowboy Fast Draw has been around a long time.  One might say,

"What is Cowboy Fast Draw?" 

Cowboy Fast Draw is one of the fastest growing cowboy shooting sports in the world.  Participants dress in the 1800's period clothing and shoot .45 caliber western style single action pistols.  We use shotgun primers with wax bullets.  The shooters shoot at a 24" round disc either from 15 ft, 18 ft or 21 ft away.  When the light in the center of the target comes on, the shooter draws his pistol from his holster, aims and hits the target while being timed to the thousandths of a second.  For more information on the rules and regulations of Cowboy Fast Draw (CFDA) please visit their website
