Participating riders will take aim at 10 balloon targets using .45 caliber single-action revolvers with certified black powder blanks. No live ammunition will be used or allowed on the premises at any time.

South Sound Mounted Shooters is a local, charity based club in south Puget Sound affiliated with the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association (CMSA).
