The web site also has some videos of competition on their site and to see two people go head to head in competition when they can both draw, fire and hit the target, sometimes in less than half a second, now that is exciting.  Watching these people in action sure made be glad they had a white circle as their target and not me across 1880 Wichita saloon.

On the site you will also be able to access information on competitions in other states, photographs, past winners and download the “Gunfighters Gazette”.  This is the stuff that Old West Stories are made of.

    Can I adapt your logo on this page? One gun instead of two, bigger arms, etcetera, etcetera. I’m asking, can I make something that looks similar to use in a fast draw contest in Portland, OR? I love it!

      Hi Gregg.
      I got that picture from
      They have a great selection of pictures and charge very little to use their pictures.
      I paid $50 and got heaps of pictures but I think you can buy just one or two if you want.
      I am no legal expert, but I think if you used the idea in the way you suggest, you would actually have created something entirely new and there would not be a problem.
      I will be checking out the Oregon site this weekend.
      I would love to do a post or maybe even a page on the event and winners.
