About Us

Welcome to the Butterfield Gulch Gang, where the Old West comes roaring back to life through the exhilarating world of Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS). We are not just a group; we are a tight-knit community of passionate individuals who share a deep love for the rich history, thrilling competitions, and captivating characters of the Wild West.

Safety First: At Butterfield Gulch Gang, your safety is our utmost concern. We prioritize responsible firearms handling and enforce stringent safety protocols at all our events. Rest assured, you can fully immerse yourself in the excitement of CAS, knowing that you are in safe hands.

Wild West Wonderland: Step into a time machine and experience the Old West like never before. Our shooting competitions take place in an awe-inspiring, meticulously crafted setting that transports you back in time. From dusty streets to rustic buildings, every detail of our remarkable site is designed to recreate the ambiance of the Old West, making each event an unforgettable journey through history.

Character and Imagination: CAS enthusiasts are known for their creativity and passion. Many of our members cultivate unique personas or characters, adding an extra layer of authenticity and excitement to our matches. From lawmen to outlaws, cowboys to gunslingers, the diversity of characters you’ll encounter at our events will leave you in awe.

Types of Firearms: We use an array of firearms, featuring various types and calibers. Whether you prefer the efficiency of smokeless powder, the challenge of cap and ball, or the allure of black powder, you’ll find it all at our CAS events. Witness dozens of different guns in action, each with its own distinctive flair.

Costume Extravaganza: Dressing the part is a crucial aspect of CAS, and our members take it seriously. You’ll be amazed by the incredible range of outfits on display, from meticulously recreated clothing to imaginative and unique attire. Our male members span the gamut from rugged ranch hands to townsfolk and even Union or Confederate soldiers, all portrayed with astonishing attention to detail. And our female members shine as soiled doves, saloon girls, and prissy town ladies, turning heads at our social events.

Youthful Enthusiasm: We’re proud to have young members who actively participate in our sport. In some parts of the country, the sight of a teenager with a firearm might be cause for alarm, but not at our CAS events. Our young shooters are not only safe gun handlers but also well-mannered individuals who bring pride not only to their parents but to our entire community. There isn’t a “junior” shooter, whether boy or girl, whom we wouldn’t want on our posse. We believe that a little fun at a CAS match can cure any misconception about today’s youth.

Join us at Butterfield Gulch Gang, where the Old West lives on, and every match is a thrilling adventure through time. We look forward to welcoming you into our vibrant community of CAS enthusiasts.
