VISITING THE RANGERS

The Johnson County Rangers is NCOWS ‘s only affiliated Kentucky posse.  We shoot the third Saturday of each month, except for November and December.  Long timers, first timers, members or non-members are always welcomed to join us if you are ever in the area.   If not, we encourage you to visit the other fine posses that make up NCOWS and experience the camaraderie of cowboy action shooting as it was meant to be.

HEARING AND EYE PROTECTION ARE REQUIRED.

MATCH TIMES: Shooter registration begins at 9:30 a.m. with the fun and festivities commencing after our 10:00 a.m. mandatory safety meeting.

MATCH FEES: For current NCOWS members the entry to a Johnson County Rangers local match costs $10.00 which will include lunch provided by the Rangers.

RECOMMENDED AMMO COUNT: Typically a local match will consist of six stages and the recommended ammo count: 60 rifle, 30 pistol (double the number if you are shooting two), and 20+ shotgun. It is always best to have a little extra ammo as you never know when we might shoot an additional stage or a fellow shooter may need a little help.

FIRST TIME VISITORS:  For those who want to experience cowboy action shooting for the first time, feel free to come out and join us.  Johnson County Rangers is a family oriented posse, where any cowboy is willing to lend helpful advice to a first timer, tell a tale tale or two or let you experience shooting a different era of shooting firearms that tamed a wild and unexplored United States.  Come for the shooting, BUT you will stay for the experience.
