Dear CCRR Members and Friends...
Due to COVID-19 virus, this coming April's match has been cancelled, and quite possibly those in coming months. We regret the inconvenience this will no-doubt cause, and will look forward to putting lead down-range together soon. Since the range we shoot at is also closed down, we will update and post future match dates as we get more information.
Thank you and stay well...

Fisheye shoots at the November, 2019 Congress of Rough Riders Match, held in 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
