Today was a great day, perfect cool sunny weather after 275mms rain for the week made and set the stage for a pleasant day of shooting, its a shame you missed it. Only two more shoots left for 2017 starting again on the fourth Sunday in January,2018. It has been suggested that maybe Cowboy Action be only shot once a month - I would like to hear your thoughts on the matter ? Centrefire Pistol Silhouette Birthday shoot went of well, the 200 metre Ram proved it being a very elusive target. Interested in the Scores for today : match finaltt Main Match 10222017.pdf

Another day of shooting Cowboy Action from the past kept us on our toes, congratulations to Mortimer who made a remarkable recovery from last weeks performances. Clean shooters today were Mortimer and the Sheriff of Tinstone. Mungo was like grease lightning, checkout his scores. Congratulations to all shooters who braved the fantastic weather we had today and came along to play. Once again Chisholm was able to knock up a good score on the 200 meter centrefire pistol silhouette range, you may like to look here :match finaltt Main Match 10012017.pdf

It sure was cold today, the coldest October day on record I
believe. Most shooters stayed home out of the chill but the shoot still went on regardless. Mungo won the day, I guess we all had a few hicups today with some stages being slightly allusive. Minnie Ha Ha shot very well. Johnson's split case caused him quite a bit of grief We welcomed new shooter Trakka and his wife Vicki. The new targets setup constructed by Chisholm and his offsider Joan didn't cause any problems and was great to shoot. Thankyou Chisholm and Co.

Sunday 2nd.October,2016. The Last Frontier was covered with smoke today from a wild fire IMG_0910 (800x598).jpg (140582 bytes)that came in the back behind the mountain yesterday, and only for the fast action by the National Parks fire fighters our Georges Hut was saved, thankyou. Today it burned our side of the mountain and across into the neighboring forestry area. Several hundred acres were on fire until they were able to contain it. Mortimer was our overall winner today, a great effort I must say for someone still trying to recover from last weeks sickness. Johnson is home again but choose not to shoot today until he has completely recovered. No one cleaned the match today, you will find the scores here. Pictured is Bad Al Junior who won the most improved shooter award for 2016,congratulations to you. Match Final Main Match 10022016.pdf

We helped Mungo celebrate his birthday today, and of course our winner for today was Mungo. Renegade Tye and his girls presented him with a birthday cake complete with sparklers, should have had a camera. Congratulations to Big Bang (pictured) on her success at Chisholm Trail 2015.

What a busy day...there were fences to fix but off course there was no time to do that as the varmints had to be taken care off first of all, not to mention taking care of the sheriff while his back was turned, oh I almost forgot "We struck it lucky at the mine." and then the raiders came down upon the train demanding " Where's the Gold". Well that was it until next Sunday 3rd.November,2013, be here or be square and you too can join in and have some fun. The scores are right here : Match Final Main Match 27102013.pdf

There was a pleasant cool change to the weather today with a stiff southerly breeze just right to take the smoke away from the line as Mortimer squeezed off his black powder cartridges. Swampfox was here getting in some practise for next weeks NSW championships. Doing mighty fine I might say, Good luck Swampie. In all the day was once again fantastic...." oh you should have been here !" You will fine the scores under the pdf file. 28102012.pdf

IDClaire1.jpg (70713 bytes)A very successful day was had by all that attended, the shooting was fast and uncomplicated and there were smiles all round. It was pleasing to see the new shooters that came to practise their rifle skills in readiness for when they front up to the line for the first time... well done. The Gallery Inspectors from Weapons Licencing have been since the last shoot and done the audit of the Range. I pass onto all of you that use this facility, their congratulations for keeping the Last Frontier Shooting Range as it should be with no damage to the trees and the firing line in a pristine condition free from all shells ect.

buckshot.jpg (67153 bytes)By now all those that competed in the National Titles this past week will now be talking about all the things they should have done...why they missed that target and so on. Well there's always next year to remedy the situation and I hope I will have the opportunity to attend.
Today at The Last Frontier it was very pleasing to see new shooters having a go for the first time and I recond that we have some new champions in the making, good work to all of you. You may view the scores here 04102009.pdf

Today's shoot, the competitors and the five stages...whoa all I can say is that you couldn't get any better if you travelled the world in search off.Today was my first time back shooting since my tumor operation in June. It sure felt good, however just half a day was enough to wear that gunbelt for the first time over the healed incision. I guess that, I must be very grateful for. Our next shoot here at The Last Frontier is next weekend 2nd November,2008. Click on the pdf files 261008.pdf to view todays scores.

fortneb.jpg (82219 bytes)Today was quite a warm day with a slight breeze blowing from the north. Our attendance was down due to the fact that so many shooters were away at the National Titles keeping the Spirit of the Game alive Nationally. I have already heard some whispers that some of them will be bringing home some Medals. Five stages were shot today at The Last Frontier with Stage One a walk down shotgun shoot, now that certainly got some adrenalin pumping and Stage Four that was one that hadn't been shot for a long time.It was great to meet with five new members today.

27th/28th,October,2007....."Cowboy 07".....
Best described as a "Fantastic Weekend" from start to finish, to those dedicated shooters that attended we the (Sheriff of Tinstone and Minnie Ha Ha) would like to thank you all for helping make the weekend the success it was. We trust that you feel as warm in your hearts as we do. Checkout the shindig pictures at the bottom.

However, due to the lack of support by many shooters that seemed to have forgot the reason why the Last Frontier came into being...ie. there was no where to be able to shoot all three firearms including long range rifle and also the meaning of what Cowboy Action Shooting was first designed ie. the respect/responsibility and true family values of a great fun sport we will not be conducting anymore two day events, this bringing to a close the end of ten years of my/our setting up and running such events. 
May I suggest for those persons to take a very deep look at themselves by looking into their own selfishness. Some of you I know had genuine reasons for not being able to attend and for these reasons I fully understand your non attendance.
The Last Frontier was not set up for our personal gain but to give all shooters somewhere to shoot on a fully dedicated to Cowboy Action Shooting Range and without your total support we are not prepared to... as one would say "bash our head against a stone wall". and by me saying this if it offends then I suggest you take another look inside of yourself.

Today's Cowboy Action started with a gunfight behind the fort and six stages later ended up in front of the Frontier Express. How the train got derailed has got many talking, of course it got blown off the tracks in the cyclone of a month ago. Remember its not to late to nominate for "Cowboy 07" The dates to remember are 27th-28th October,2007. Click on the pdf file for todays scores.071007.pdf

Sunday 22nd.October,2006.
With having light steady rain falling at The Last Frontier during the night the morning was overcast with temperatures much more pleasant then what they were the previous day. 8am saw Douglas Mortimer the first of the cowboys coming up the driveway ready for another day of action packed shooting. Five stages were the order of the day with Stage #1 another one of those get your adrenalin goin' stages. Yes you should have been here to enjoy...
Some say that the match took too long between stages, well I have the answer to fix that problem, its easy fixed...All that is needed is for everyone to pitch in and do some of the WORK like being a Range Officer...brass pick-up, stand targets, be spotters and take some of the work load off those few people that are expected to do everything. Lets not be selfish...Don't you think those few dedicated persons would like to enjoy their shooting too....Opps I almost forgot to do the scores how forgetful of me.
