Wild West Days event to feature state’s top fast draw experts November 4 & 5, 2017

 October 18, 2017, Cave Creek, Arizona – The Association of Arizona Gunslingers, members of the Cowboy Fast Draw Association, will demonstrate shooting skills and assist event visitors interested in learning to shoot during Wild West Days at The Horny Toad.

The fast draw experts, who will be onsite at on Saturday, November 4 and Sunday, November 5, will host a Town Alley event known as Come Try Cowboy Fast Draw, beginning at 9:00 AM both days. Town Alley is a safe, organized event for the public to try their hand at Cowboy Fast Draw. Visitors can test their skills for only $5 for 10 shots.

Cowboy Fast Draw is one of the fastest growing shooting sports and the closest thing to a real gunfight. The Arizona Gunslingers use real single action .45 caliber six shooters with a minimum barrel length of 4.5 inches but will use wax bullets propelled by a 209 shotgun primer.  The holsters are pre-1900's style, no metal liners. The shooting pros wait for a light, draw, aim, fire and hit a 24-inch round target 21 feet away before the opponent does. In addition to the fast draw fun, local artist Randy Hume will create caricatures for guests and visitors and The Horny Toad will feature flat iron steak with cowboy beans, baked potato and garlic bread for only $14.95.

The Horny Toad, Cave Creek’s oldest and most popular restaurant, is located at 6738 E. Cave Creek Road in Cave Creek, Ariz., www.thehornytoad.com.
