See who is the “fastest gun alive!”

Fast draw enthusiasts world-wide compete with single action revolvers, similar to those used in the Old West. It is a timed sport using single action .45 caliber (western style six shooters) with wax bullets that travel 650 feet per second. Contestants must dress in Western-Style clothing and utilize pre 1900 style holsters. It’s as exciting as dropping the clutch on a dragster!

The “Fastest Gun Alive” competitions take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Wednesday afternoon and Thursday, other competitions will be held, such as the inaugural U.S. Marshall’s Cup, the Charity Celebrity Shoot and the Shootist Jackpot Shoot.
