The "WPD" is a Windy Plains Drifters modified class to assist new cowboy competitors who may not have all the gear or ammo. Typically the WPD class only shoots three stages however if you want to shoot more stages that is OK. Pistol (need only one): This pistol must be a revolver capable of shooting 6 rounds of .22, .38/.357, .44 or .45 Long Colt. Ammo: The ammo must be lead bullets and low velocity. Rifle: The rifle must be any of the calibers of the pistol above, does not have to be the same as the pistol. The Rifle should be a lever action. However, a pump action will be accepted. Shotgun: Side by side, or pump, 410, 20, 16 or 12 gauge. Holsters are optional as the Range has carpeted benches and platforms to rest guns on when not shooting them. Costumes: Jeans and a button up long sleeve shirt are preferred and are part of the safety gear. If you want to wear a hat, straw or cowboy style hats are also preferred. Shorts, t-shirts and baseball caps are strongly discouraged. Safety Gear: Eye and ear protection is a must while shooting or watching shooters on the range.Honestly, if you don't have all the guns either we still want you to come out and use what ever you do have. Heck, we remember when Near Side showed up with nothing more than a single pistol! Really, we want you to just come on out and have fun!
