After a one year absence, Gunfight In Dixie XII returned September 19-21, 2014 with a new mission. Because MSSA and the Memphis Gunslingers have one of the top Cowboy Ranges in the country we put on a very successful match with 73 shooters from Oklahoma, Florida, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri and Tennessee. The weather was sunny and a little warm, but there was no rain and a full three days of activities were enjoyed. We offered a Wild Bunch 3 Stage Match, a Cowboy 10 Stage Match, A Long Range Match and side matches for fast pistol, fast rifle, fast shotgun and fast 3-gun.

A Square Meal on Wheels catered in lunch and a great dinner on Saturday night. The vittles included shrimp, catfish, chicken strips, green beans, spaghetti and desert. The event started Friday with a full day of side matches and a warm-up stage. We got a nice start on Saturday with four stages, a break for lunch, and then we finished up with the last two stages. Sunday finished out the match with an awards presentation after the final results were tabulated. The Memphis Gunslingers provided a very nice selection of gifts that were given away during the awards ceremony, which included two Ruger 9mm pistols.

The overall winner for men was “Prestidigitater”, and our top woman competitor was “Dew R. Dye”. We’re already looking forward to next year, and plans are underway for Gunfight in Dixie XIII. The dates for next year’s event will be announced soon. Thanks to everyone for attending Gunfight in Dixie XII, and we hope you enjoyed the match as much as we did.
