Two days of competition start on Saturday
The Western States Shooting Association will conduct the Wyoming State Mounted Shooting Championships in Powell this Saturday and Sunday. The event will take place at the Park County Fairgrounds starting at 10 a.m. both days.
Participants, many dressed in Old West era attire, will take their turns riding through seven rounds of randomly selected course patterns featuring 10 targets. They’ll shoot single-action .45s loaded with black powder blanks with the goal of taking out all 10 targets in the shortest amount of time. Time is added for each target missed during a competitor’s run.
