Revolvers and Rhinestones to offer mounted shooting clinic

DUNCAN — Cowboy mounted shooting is a fast-growing sport in the United States and now the Duncan community has the opportunity to learn skills from the best.

Revolvers and Rhinestones is presenting a Cowboy Mounted Shooting Clinic Dec. 20 with instructor Curt Moore. Beginning shooters, who have never shot off their horse, will be from 1-3 p.m. and intermediate shooters, who want to refine their skills, will be from 3-5 p.m. at the Stephens County Fair & Expo Center.

Included in your Mounted Shooting Clinic for beginners will be rules and regulations that apply to mounted shooting across the country, gun safety, gun varieties (choices), M.S. blanks as they apply to mounted shooting events, acclimate horse and rider to gunfire and course management. You will also meet some of the mounted shooters across the country who become life-long friends within the sport.

Intermediate riders learn course management and rating horse through patterns, techniques to advance you and your horse to the higher levels and receive professional advice from long-time multi-world and national champion how to play the game of mounted shooting more effective.

This event will fill up fast and spots are limited. A deposit is due by Dec. 10. To register for the first First Class Mounted Shooting Clinic, call Curt Moore at 940-389-0404 or Donna Rankin at 402-419-0191.

Moore began mounted shooting in 2000 after seeing a mounted shooting event take place in Arizona, not long after the sport originated. He quickly rose to the top. Moore’s first Overall Win was in 2002 at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City Mounted Shooting Expo.

From that point forward, he has won multiple World and National Championships in Pistol and Rifle competitions, both MSA and CMSA. In 2012, Moore was Cimarron Eliminator World Champion and 2013 he was Cimarron Eliminator Reserve World Champion.

Moore has been teaching and training mounted shooting full time for the past 15 years and has many students who have won national and world titles along the way, proving his ability as a trainer. When the opportunity to work with the World Class training facility NRS became available, it became clear what directions Moore wanted to go.

This opportunity is being made nationwide to everyone who is currently or not currently participating in cowboy mounted shooting. Should you have a horse, guns and gun belt or you just want a try at getting started in the fastest growing equestrian sport, here is the opportunity to do just that.

  • Governor, state Legislature have misplaced priorities

    If the Oklahoma State Legislators and our Governor spent less time interfering in women’s rights to manage their bodies, creating ways to lay more taxes and fees on the middle class in order to generate more tax breaks which benefit only the wealthy while also conceiving methods with which to fill Oklahoma’s for-profit prisons, they would be doing all of us a favor. Instead, why not work to enhance funding for our schools and wage increases for all school employees? While reforming the state’s educational budget, why don’t they approve wage increases for our Oklahoma State Troopers and enlarge their Academy to insure qualified individuals are ready to fill the upcoming vacancies as many of the older force retire?

  • Self government key to keeping politicians in check

    Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that federal campaign laws that limit the total amount of money donors can give to political parties, committees and candidates for federal office (U.S. House, Senate, and President) was unconstitutional. The ruling will not increase the current $2,600 limit on how much a donor can give to a federal candidate in each primary and general election or the $32,400 limit that can go to a national party committee. Those limits are still in place.  The ruling will instead remove the limit on how many candidates/committees to which a donor can contribute.
