The 19th Annual Chorro Valley Shootout will bring more than 300 gunslingers to the range on Highway 1 this week as they compete in the largest cowboy action shooting match in the West.

Cowboy action shooting is staged “Old West” style and features firearms typical of the era: single-action revolvers, pistol-caliber lever-action rifles and old-time shotguns. The competitors adopt shooting aliases and dress in appropriate costumes.

The public is welcome to attend and view the competition, which runs daily through Sunday. For information, visit
