The day’s activities provided constant reminders of why this shoot was more special than an ordinary day on the range. Their normally authentic cowboy attire and ammunition was noticeably pink. Each member had a pink ribbon tied around their arm or cowboy hat. Even the targets had been painted pink for the day.
The Capital City Cowboys is a group of men and women of all ages who participate in competitive shooting. They dress in old west attire and choose cowboy nicknames like “Southern Gentleman”, “Doc”, “Bad Moon” and “Opossum”, which is how they are addressed during the shoot. The group is extremely friendly and welcoming, and there is a good measure of laughter and conversation. To learn more about the Capital City Cowboys, visit their website capitalcitycowboys.org.
