Posted February 21, 2020

PHOENIX — The “Old West” returns Feb. 24-March 1 to the Ben Avery Shooting Facility (BASF).

More than 1,000 competitors from around the world will take part in Winter Range, site of the 29th annual Single Action Shooting Society’s national championship of Cowboy Action Shooting. Cowboy Action Shooting is one of the nation’s fastest-growing shooting sports and requires competitors to take their best shots with single-action revolvers, lever-action rifles and period shotguns. 

Winter Range will feature period militaria, exhibitions of Old West skills and crafts, a fast-draw competition, and vendors purveying period clothing, hats and wigs, antiques, reproductions and more. There also will be roaming balladeers and trick horses, and a two-day mounted shooting event Feb. 29-March 1. 

A variety of food services will be available at Winter Range. Admission is free (parking is $5). BASF is located on Carefree Highway, west of Interstate 17. For more information, visit
