​What is Cowboy Fast Draw?

Cowboy Fast Draw is one of the fastest growing cowboy shooting sports in the world. Participants dress in the 1800's period clothing and shoot .45 caliber western style single action pistols.   Shooters will come up with an alias.  We use shotgun primers with wax bullets.    The shooters shoot at a 24" round disc from 21 ft away or a 17" disc from 15 ft away.  When the light in the center of the target comes on, the shooter draws his/her pistol from his/her holster, aims and hits the target while being timed to the thousandths of a second. For more information on the rules, regulations or to join   Cowboy Fast Draw (CFDA) please visit their website.  

Cowboy Fast Draw Motto is:
  • Safety First
  • Fun Second
  • Competition Third
We shoot at the Rio Salado Sportsman's Club in Mesa.
