“Little Sacagewea,” also known as NRA Deputy Executive Director Andrea Cerwinske, took a break from the action in New Mexico to check in with NRAblog. She and NRA Executive Director of General Operations Kayne Robinson are at End of Trail, the oldest and largest Cowboy Action Shooting competition in the world.
Both Cerwinske and Robinson are life members of the Single Action Shooting Society, or SASS, the event’s sponsoring organization.
More than 1,000 competitors are expected to attend the four-day event, held at Founders Ranch in New Mexico. Each is authentically dressed as a character of his or her choosing. In addition to the United States, participants have been coming in from New Zealand, France, Italy, and Australia. “It's incredible to see the widespread interest in Cowboy Action Shooting,” Cerwinske (pictured above) told NRAblog.
Cowboy Action Shooting is a western U.S. tradition committed to preserving the history of the Old West. In addition to the competitive firearms component, End of Trail serves as a celebration of the Old West “cowboy” lifestyle and offers activities and entertianment for shooters and non-shooters alike.
