The Posse is especially proud of Karson The Kid shooting in his first major match at the age of 10," said Howell.
"This young man is the son of Doc Nelson and Tira Todo, the state champion gunfighter and lady gunfighter," commented Cowboy Murderin Maude.
The youngster is already as fast as the average mature shooter. The Castle Gate Posse welcomes new shooters young and old at the North Springs Shooting Range. Join them on the fourth Saturday of the month. Shooters meet at 9:00 a.m. in the Castle Gate Town.
