Where We
Shoot

OK Corral Gun Club is south central Florida’s premier shooting sports club and western town, hosting 10 outdoor shooting venues, and mining town cabins offer guests an amazing lodging experience. Lunch is server daily in the High Noon Café.  Event facilities are also present on the 350 acres of land that were formerly used for grazing cattle during the early 1800’s, back at the time of the earliest of the real cowboys.  The Cracker Cowboy moved their cattle over this very land. 

All new shooters must complete the online LIABILITY WAIVER.  This is a one-time event.

The Waiver automatically renews each year.

How We
Shoot

Cowboy Action Shooting™ is a shooting sport in which contestants compete in costume and with firearms typical of those used in the taming of the Old West: single action revolvers, lever action rifles, and shotguns of the era. The competition is staged in a characterized, Old West style.  The use of vintage firearms, authentic costuming, unique targets, and fast action make Cowboy Action Shooting™ one of the most interesting of all shooting sports for both spectator and contestant.

The Rule Book is the official Shooter’s Handbook of the Cowboy Action Shooters Society (SASS). The New Shooter Info is a quick guide on preparation for a match and the safety rules during the match.

Howdy Pardner!

We are a Cowboy Action Shooting Club affiliated with the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS). Cowboy Action Shooting is a family oriented sport that embraces two primary facets of the old west, shooting and costuming.

Participants dress in late 1800 era clothing and engage in staged and timed shooting scenarios using firearms typical of those used in taming of the Old West. The single action revolver, lever or pump action rifles, as well as, old time shotguns is the weaponry of choice for the competitors as they fight for the prestige of clearing the multi-staged courses in the fastest times with the highest accuracy.

Named after the Wild West’s  famous 30 second gun fight in 1881, OK Corral Gun Club is situated on a 350-acre site in Okeechobee, Florida. This land was settled back in the early 1800’s as grazing lands for cattle back when Okeechobee was the home to European settlers. It is now repurposed to being the premier shooting sports club and western town in south central Florida. Housing 10 outdoor shooting venues, mining town cabins, recreational and event facilities, and so much more spread out along the land.

The Match

IDES OF MARCH and FL STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS

August 2020, the Lake County Pistoleros announce The Ides have been rescheduled to the third weekend in November. All the awards had been made and it was necessary to hold the match in 2020. With all the other rescheduled matches, holidays, restrictions, and mandates, this was the most tenable weekend to host the match. I jokingly dubbed it the Ides of Marvember in an online post and it stuck. After all the rescheduling, the reworking of the range operations to Midwest Hale and Bucky Buckskin display their Overall and State Champion buckles. COWBOY CHRONICLE 1920 COWBOY CHRONICLE suit mandates, and a lot of work by Greta Dee (SASS #63811) and company, we were set. The Eustis Gun Club in Tavares, FL was to be the site of the rescheduled 2020 Florida State Championship. The Lake County Pistoleros had reconfirmed 180 shooters representing 11 states, 37 categories, 12 Vendors, and more than 23 Sponsors for the Ides. We were ready for our State Championship after waiting nearly nineteen months since the last one was held. Wednesday, November 18 was the first day vendors and campers could arrive and get set up. Match Director Arcadia Outlaw (SASS #71385), Smart Asterisk (SASS #95019), Blazing Saddles (SASS #107362), and the rest of the crew started setting up the stages on Monday and Tuesday and had some tweaking left on Wednesday. Delta Glen (SASS #39197) went to work setting up the Man vs Man side match, which would double as the Top Gun shoot off. All were ready, at least in spirit, for the Ides of Marvember to finally commence. Thursday morning was side match day and we could not have asked for better weather. Temperatures were in the high 50s to start and reached the mid 70s by the end of the day with lots of breezes to keep us cool. Sun[1]shine Rose (SASS #95670) and Purdy Sharp (SASS #59649) handled registration in the pavilion and welcomed all shooters to The Ides. There was a four[1]stage Wild Bunch mini-match as well as speed matches including pistol, rifle, shotgun, pocket pistol, and Derringer. There were also long-range side matches of 100 and 200 yards. And then there was the aforementioned Man vs Man shoot off. This was the only side match that required payment, but all those proceeds were donated to the SASS Scholarship Fund, raising $350. For this side match, you challenged someone to a head-to-head shoot-off. The first one to dispense of all 24 of their knockdowns won bragging rights, until the next round. It was an incredibly fun way to spend the day and prepare for the Top Gun shoot off. This was the day Chickie had looked forward to for a long time. She had beaten me at a match back in 2019 and it was decided (not by me) that the penance for this defeat would be to wear a dress to a match. I adroitly avoided wearing said dress for I did not make it through sixteen years of living with five girls never wearing one to have to put one on at a match. So Chickie decided if I wore a kilt at Ides for all to see, it would suffice. She bought the kilt and then waited for more than a year for me to pay my penance. Everyone seemed to enjoy giving me grief about the kilt or my Florida boots, and who could blame them. But the highlight of the day (and maybe the match) was when Chickie and Moog (SASS #97253) matched up against one another in the Man vs (Wo) Man shoot off. They both had a bounits normal third weekend in March, so by the time you read this the match sadly will be over. But we hope you’ll be able to join us in 2022, also the third weekend of March. Until we meet again, happy trails…

Hey there Cowpokes, it’s time to put them six shooters, rifles, and shotguns to use at our SASS affiliate Annual Match  “SHOOTOUT AT THE OK CORRAL.    In this event shooters will test their steel in action stages where it all comes down to their speed and accuracy to see who’s the real best shot in the west.  Roam about our cowboy action town and grab some fine grub at our Chuckwagon lunch. This event is going to be one heck of a ho down. We look forward to seeing y’all out there!

Completed:  January 23, 2021  
Our theme:  “LADIES OF THE OLD WEST”
     There are hundreds of women who stand out in the history of the Old West due to their strong character, contributions to society, or plain interesting personalities.  From the hardy women pioneers who were nurses, abolitionists, stagecoach drivers, and some doctors. For those less fortunate, forced by circumstance, need and adventure, you’ll find female outlaws, gamblers, powerful Madams, their brothels, and a bevy of soiled doves.
We hope you enjoyed the match.
