Team Vihtavuori member, Evil Roy (Gene Pearcy), recently brought home two national titles from the 2020 Winter Range SASS National Championship of Cowboy Action Shooting in Phoenix, AZ.
The Winter Range SASS National Championship of Cowboy Action Shooting was hosted by the Arizona Territorial Company of Rough Riders at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, AZ, February 24 – March 1. Over 1,000 competitors from around the world competed at the Winter Range, which features period militaria, exhibits Old West skills and crafts, and fast-draw competitions.
Evil Roy competed in both Cowboy Action and Wild Bunch competitions. Roy took first place and the national title in “Cowboy Action – Cattle Baron” with a score of 302.98. He also placed first and won the national title in the “Wild Bunch” with a score of 3726.68.
“As always, I was shooting N320 in my .38 cowboy loads, .45 ACP, and .45 LC in the Wild Bunch competition,” stated Evil Roy. “Winning national titles in both events brings my World/National Championships to a total of 44.”
Making the Winter Range SASS National Championship even sweeter was Evil Roy shooting alongside his granddaughter, Holy Terror (Randi Rogers). Holy Terror was top woman overall in both Cowboy Action and Wild Bunch. Following in her grandfather’s footsteps, Terror also knows Vihtavuori’s N320 will get her to the winner’s podium!
