Cowboy mounted shooting?

Does anyone here compete in mounted shooting?
I'm new to the sport and would like to hear from other rider/shooters!

No not really I have hunted off my stallion a few times. Stacy Westfall has gotten into it around here and there are some places that are adding it as a class.

I would think it would be fun. Cost especially start up cost might be a factor but it does look like fun.

My farrier does it and I plan on giving it a go as well. He said he's show me the ropes. Going to see if my gelding will take to it. Always wanted to try!

It does take big bucks to get started!
When we saw the event over 2 years ago, my Hubby and I were both very excited about it till we priced the guns
He has his and I hope to get mine before next years season starts!

If you could use something besides a .45 it would not be so bad. I have guns I could use but not .45's and I have no interest in buying them for CC or general shooting so that would be the only use for them.

In Canada, the firearms laws are SO tight, especially for handguns that it will take forever to get into it here. The permits you have to have are unbelievable. If I want to start next year I'd have to start all of the necessary courses and filing the paper work 6 months ago! I have a feeling it will be slow to evolve here because of that.

The sport sounds fun, there is nothing like that around here but I have seen videos of it.

That's been one of our biggest complaints!
The .45's are more expensive to buy and the ammo is high and hard to find! (in our area)

Especially for revolvers. They can be on the harder side to find as most people was .45 autos.

As for the ammo. Best bet would be to load your own according to the rules. You could not go out and buy the ammo as you do not want the bullet.
