October 05, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The Sioux City Camera Club has received permission to photograph members of the Nebraska Territorial Rangers in their authentic western costumes at their Competition Shooting Range with old west cowtown backdrops on Sunday, Oct. 23. View 2-min. video of location at this link: on YouTube at

 Photographer should focus on gunfighter portraits and similar Cowtown folks photography. There will be no gunfight reenactments, against club rules! Visitors must stay behind the ropes during shooting all competition. Wear hearing protection!

 These are serious competitive shooters, part of a national Old West Action Shooting organization. They use live ammo, So photographers must work around the competition segments. Best opportunities for photography are during lunch time and afterwards (ends about 3 p.m.) On the way home, additional opportunities for autumn scenery photography while traveling through the Loess Hills or the Lincoln Highway/Historical Buildings near Missouri Valley, Iowa.

We should meet at 9:45 a.m. at Peterbilt of Sioux City (I-29 and Singing Hills Boulevard) on Sunday, Oct. 23.

Form carpools and follow along in a convoy at 10. The shooting range is out in the boondocks, little hard to find. I will hand out maps to the drivers, just in case the convoy breaks up. The last several miles will be gravel roads. Parking available on pasture grass on the side of a hill.

 E-mail me of your interest in attending this event. Or sign up at the next camera club meeting. No admission charge required. Visitors are welcome.
