Guns to use at the Goddard Cowboys Match

At the Goddard Cowboys we are a different breed of cowboy club from what most people are used to. I’d like to take some time and give some examples of allowable firearms at the Goddard Cowboys. To start off, if a gun is allowed in SASS, or in NCOWS, it is allowed here. Including such guns as the USFA Omnipotent, revolver (not NCOWS legal), and the 1878 Colt DA revolver that the Omni is based on (not SASS legal). I will give a list of guns that are legal at the Goddard Cowboys. In no way is this list a complete list; it is merely a guideline. If you have a gun that I haven’t listed, or haven’t mentioned, or a gun that I didn’t in a million years think you’d come across, feel free to contact me, or just bring it with you to a match.

NOTE:  We are now allowing .22 pistols and rifles in our categories.
