FRU 2022 – An old-style, historical cowboy shoot; Stage 7 – Don’t Hit the Props

Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.

RT’s wish is for you to hit all the Texas star targets while shooting your pistol.

(Oh, and don’t shoot the props with your shotgun.)

Read the stage description below to see what we mean.

Come on out for the last Fall Round-Up, at least for a while. Regardless of what you enjoy most about FRU: The fun side matches, the free Friday night pizza party, free Saturday lunch, the Saturday night banquet, or the free awards lunch and ceremony, the hit and miss tickets, or if you just enjoy the late September 3-day match at Camden Mills, come on out and help us pause FRU in style.

FRU 2022 – An old-style, historical cowboy shoot; Stage 6 – Who has the Anchor?

What a stage: It begins with the stage line “I love anchor sweeps” followed by tossing a stick of dynamite into a barrel. The gun order will be Rifle, Shotgun, then Pistol. The rifle and pistol are shot by placing a round on the center target (the anchor) then placing 1 round on each of the other targets, alternating between them and the anchor.

Do you love anchor sweeps? We’ll find out.

FRU 2022 – An old-style, historical cowboy shoot; Stage 5 – Tricky Shotgun – Hang RT Again

After last year’s Fall Round-Up, tensions were high. RT had just finished reviewing last year’s comments, and it was obvious: He was a wanted man.

Who remembers the singer/songwriter Roger Miller? One of his songs seems appropriate – can you guess which one? To give you a clue, here are some lyrics from one of them.

Dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman, would you weep for me?

(I’ll bet many of you are hearing that song in your head right now!)

Well, RT learned his lesson and wants to make amends with this fast, fun stage. No rope needed. Take a look below.

FRU 2022 – An old-style, historical cowboy shoot; Stage 4 – RT, You’re Going to Swing

Swing: intransitive verb

  1. To move back and forth suspended or as if suspended from above.
  2. To move laterally or in a curve.
  3. To hit at something with a sweeping motion of the arm.

in this stage, RT gives you two of the three above definitions –

  1. the Cougar swings back and forth; and,
  2. the shooter moves laterally.

We’ll, let’s just forget about #3 – no hitting allowed!.

All kidding aside, the swinging Cougar is a fun stage, and you get plenty of chances to hit the 5 pistols targets on the dueling tree, so no worries there. Another way to think about this stage: All for fun; and fun for all!

FRU 2022 – An old-style, historical cowboy shoot; Stage 3 – Can I be like Deuce?

Rootin Tootin has always been amazed at how fast Deuce can manipulate a pistol. Can you be like Deuce? Let’s see how fast you can manipulate your pistols.

In this stage RT is having us shoot a Deuce Stevens Speed sweep by double tapping each of the three pistols targets then putting four on the center target. How fast can you shoot it? Come on out and let’s find out!
