National convention of shootists set in Nasvhille


The National Congress of Old West Shootists will be conducting its national convention from March 20 to 22 at The Seasons Lodge and Convention Center, 560 State Road 46, Nashville.

The organization was founded in 1994 to promote safe western action shooting, including the re-enactment and promotion of the historical Old West heritage of the United States in all of its ethnic, social and occupational diversity during the period of 1865 to 1899.

Among the common activities members enjoy are western action shoots, which is a timed shooting sport in which shooters compete on a series of different shooting stages. Members also spend time researching, collecting and exchanging information on the firearms, fashions, history and other facets of the Old West.

The convention will include many events, such as a carnival shootout, a banquet, a cocktail party, seminars covering various topics of the Old West and vendors selling period items and clothing.
