We will be celebrating the "Candy Dance" as long as we have volunteers to keep it going, and we thank all our volunteers for their hardwork.

World Cowboy Fast Draw Championship
Downtown
Fallon, NV
Oct 3 - 5, 2014
Details: 775-745-9727
You might say this all started in 1873 with Colt's release of the Peacemaker. In the era of 1873 through the 1890's, the Romance and Legend of the American West was unlike any other culture in the world; this time period is the premise for Cowboy Fast Draw. We use the best equipment available of the 1800's: single action revolvers and center fire cartridges. We're out to capture the feel of the Peacemaker in your hand, the smell of holster leather, and the exhilaration of reacting as fast as you dare while remaining cool-headed enough to hit your mark as you compete head to head in classic old west fashion. In Cowboy Fast Draw we can find out how we would have shot in the 1800's with gunfighter period guns and rigs.
