Speed shooting in Cowboy Action

    This is nothing new, but for those who don’t know, Cowboy Action is a competition similar to 3gun except they use old styled firearms. They use a revolver, shotgun and rifle. However they are all manually operated. Single action revolvers are used for the pistols. Side by side, pump (hammered) or lever action shotguns and lever action rifles are used.

    I am a fan of well executed manipulation of a firearm, but how fast can someone be using such antiquated firearms? Pretty darned fast.

    Watch Specer Hoglund hand load 4 rounds, shoot all 4 rounds out of his shotgun in 2.54 secs.

    Here is one with a double barreled shotgun.
