A message from CCOR Founder & President ...
A New Season Begins ...
To all those who love to Cowboy Action Shoot at High Rock Range.
Here we are again. Another season to share with my Pards in CORR and those with a hankering to shoot CAS. Welcome to our 2021 season. Some things may have changed. We still have to deal with COVID-19 and the precautions we have to take to stay safe in this difficult time. The good thing is the most important part of our club still remains. We have the best damn group of Cowboys in CT. So for those who shot with us over the past years and the ones who are just getting started, welcome. I am looking forward to our best season yet. Same great people and some new gear to keep things interesting. We will keep a spot open for you on the sign in sheet.

The Brisco Kid shoots at the Big Boom Match... July 4, 2021 Congress of Rough Riders Naugatuck, CT
The Congress of Rough Riders of Ct. (CORR) started about twenty years ago to promote the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS) in the southern part of Connecticut. At that time the only other CAS venue was in Avon, Ct. at the Metacon Gun Club. Those living in the southern part of the state had a long drive to get to a CAS match.
Our President and Founder presented the idea of CAS to the then President of High Rock Shooting Association. They were kind enough and interested enough to give him the go-ahead. Those with an interest in CAS spent many weeks building targets and props. On a cold December day in two inches of snow the first CAS match at High Rock Range took place. We had about eight shooters. Some of those shooters are still with us today. Since that first shoot, what came to be known as CORR has continued to this day. As with any club, we have had our ups and downs over the years. The best part is, we are still going strong.
At this time CORR has twenty five active members. Our focus is on new members and advancing the sport of CAS. We do this by offering new shooters that may not have the firearms, leather and clothing required an opportunity to shoot a match using our equipment at no cost to them. What we do ask is that a new shooter observe one match before taking advantage of our offer. Most shooters who do take advantage of this offer come back to shoot with us again. Some have become CORR members that day. We believe shooters should have the opportunity to try something before making a commitment that can be both a time consuming and financial one. CAS may not be for everyone, but maybe it's for you. You won't know until you try it. We have two main rules: SHOOT SAFE and HAVE FUN.
We would love to hear from you, or better yet, come to one of our matches.
Matches held at High Rock Range, 100 Black Forest Road, Naugatuck, CT 06770
There are no matches in Janurary, February and March.
