Arizona Historical Shootist Association, Inc.
Los Vaqueros is one of the oldest Cowboy Action Shooting clubs in the United States, and the oldest in Arizona (37 years). The club began in 1984 under the leadership of Ole Deadeye
(SASS #422 L, Regulator, SASS Hall of Fame Member).
The Board of Directors strives to maintain the spirit of Ole Deadeye's vision for the club by welcoming new-comers, working cooperatively with other clubs and match organizations in the region, and creating shooting scenarios that are fast with big and close targets.
