Cowboy Action:
The Dry Gulch Desperados

About the Desperados

The Dry Gulch Desperados were formed in early 2000 when GD Rimrock, Diamond Deb, Shalako Tucker, and Pinto Annie discovered the East End Rod & Gun Club and the ability to practice Cowboy Action Shooting a little closer to home. We are a SASS affiliated club, and Shalako Tucker is our Territorial Governor (TG).

We shoot on the first Saturday of the month – see the calendar for specific dates. Sign up starts at 9 am, shooting starts at 9:30 am, all year round.

The results of our monthly shoots are posted at Practiscore.

For more information, contact Pinto Annie by texting to 509 dash 520 dash 2789.

And … … join the Pataha Rustlers in Dayton, WA, on the 2nd Saturday of the month (except August – no shoot!).  Holler if you need directions!

Shots in the Valley 2017

Runamuck , DeShoots Kid, Hey Granpa, Shot-Z-Lady, Shalako Tucker, and Pinto Annie challenged us with stages all weekend! We had fabulous weather Friday and Saturday, but got a bit too wet on Sunday! We enjoyed some extra company on Saturday too.

HUGE congratulations to Wiley Bob who shot Warm up, Plainsman AND Main Match all CLEAN!! What a feat! We had 9 out of 17 shoot CLEAN in the Warm up: Cam Colt, DeShoots Kid, El Gordo Hombre, Jackass Jim, Missouri Lee, Omache Kid, Pinto Annie, Shot-Z-Lady and Wiley Bob. Main Match we only 3 shooters managed to go CLEAN: Hey Granpa, Shot-Z-Lady and Wiley Bob.

The Shotgun Walk was a lot of fun with Runamuck and Satin-N-Spurs coming out winners. Long Range Pistol and Long Range Pistol Caliber Rifle we neglected to take note of and will try to get this updated with that info! Satin-N-Spurs was our Lady winner for each!

Enjoy those BBQ sets everyone and Thank YOU for shooting with us!!

Best of luck to our fellow shooters headed to the Cowboy Action World Championships, End of Trail!!!

SASS NW Territorial Blackpowder Shootout 2016 is in the books!

May 20-22, 2016 – A great weekend shooting with friends! The weatherman tried to scare us off, but we prevailed and only had a few drips during shooting! The downpour made us head for the RVs for lunch Saturday and kept us indoors Saturday evening! Smoke was no problem on Sunday! Please scroll down on the scores pages — CLEAN match winners are listed below the scores.

Congratulations to Ol’ #4 for winning the shotgun challenge and to Shalako Tucker and Lightfoot for winning the team event!

Here are posse pictures from Sunday (because I forgot my camera on Saturday!).
