Bordertown is the cowboy action shooting state championship match for the state of Arizona. The match sells out year after year and provides 300 shooters a fun, fast and unique shooting experience.
Cowboy Doug and his wife Tequilla Terry own The Tombstone Livery, the Bordertown venue. Six seperate bays, all complete with storefront props or buildings help provide the western flavor for the match.
We arrived on October 18, in order to shoot a 2 day warm up match. The attendance for the warm up was a total of 130 shooters.
The weather has been absolutely great, and many of the top name shooters are starting to arrive for the state championship. The steel targets have been set and they are BIG, and CLOSE. I paced off pistol targets on one stage and they were 3 to 3.5 yards.
I am excited because several of my shooting instruction clients are competing at this event. All of them have done a considerable amount of training and practice, and each has the ability to shoot very well here.
