As usual there will be lots of food, fun, drinks, Scrabble and darts!

Cool! Nothing beats a good game of Scrabble after sending some lead downrange!

Some Cherokees *are* cowboys.

So why doesn't the link to cherokeevillageresort.com actually go to cherokeevillageresort.com? Oh well...

"Cherokee Village Resort's natural terrain has been enhanced by incorporating habitat that attracts wildlife such as butterflies and birds. As a "guests only" secluded getaway, Cherokee Village Resort offers privacy without public distraction. Come and enjoy beautiful Lake Whitney's towering limestone bluffs, clear blue water and protected coves in cozy comfort, at one of the cabins or cottages at Cherokee Village Resort."

Perfect place to come in with lots and lots of GUNZ! At least they aren't shooting up a populated area.

The shooting isn't at the resort. It's at a range down the road.
And that "resort" looks hideous. Very tacky. Full beds in the living rooms. Futons. I could almost smell it. Mothballs.

There were no Cherokees in Texas. Apache, Comanche, yes; Cherokee, no. Not all Native American tribes are the same.

Not all are tribes.

Some are nations.

You're trying to be facetious, but you're not wrong.

Accurate fast shooting is all about muscle memory.  At least, it is if you want a good score which is usually based on your time as well as the number of hits you make.  Small things like being able to reload quickly without fumbling about for stuff and getting the bullets into the gun quickly can make quite a difference.

So it's nice to unwind afterwards with a purely cerebral pursuit.  Maybe even a drink or two.

After you've cleaned your guns, of course.

For whom, the cowboys?

Don't forget what happened last time full contact cowboy action shooting was a real thing....

At most shooting events roughly 90% of the shooters are men and about half of them bring their wives or girlfriends along.  The wives and girlfriends who don't shoot usually fundraise for causes, sell merch, score matches, sell or give away baked goods, and generally socialize.  If you want your weekend shooting event to be something people return to you need to give the people who aren't shooting something to do.

The most starkly attractive woman I've seen was a competitor at a primitive biathlon.

I've shot with/against quite a few very attractive women myself. Also, the younger crowd has a better ratio of men to women too which is good to see.

Just visited the Clark county range in Las Vegas for the first time yesterday. Good Lord that place is a shooters dream. Clean, organized, well run, funded by the county. You can even camp your RV there, right by the shotgun range.
And the ratio of shooting men to women was about 65/35. That is very different from back in the day. I even saw young single mothers teaching their children the sport. Those are some moms that will be quite prepared to fend off any intruder.
As for OP, I think any event that brings cultures together in a way that is beneficial to both is healthy. The best to way demonize others is to have no contact with them.
