About Rattlesnake Gulch Rangers

The Rattlesnake Gulch Rangers are the Cowboy Action Shooting discipline of the Tri-Cities Shooting Association (TCSA).  We are affiliated with the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) and matches are conducted per SASS rules.

To compete you’ll need 2 single action revolvers, a pistol caliber lever or slide action rifle, and a side by side (no ejectors), lever action, or 1897 Winchester shotgun.

All ammunition must use lead bullets/lead birdshot, and fall within SASS guidelines.

We shoot our monthly match on the Fourth Saturday of each month, weather permitting, with the exception of April (when we host our annual match) and November (no match Thanksgiving weekend).

Check the calendar at www.tcsa.info to confirm before you make the drive out.

Typical monthly matches consist of ~6 stages, requiring minimum 60 rifle, 60 pistol, and a box or so of shotshells.

Sign up is at 9:00 AM, and mandatory shooter’s meeting is at 9:15 AM.   Matches are open to the public.  Monthly match fee is $10 including sales tax.  Kids under 18 shoot free when accompanied by an adult.


On the fourth weekend in April we host the SASS Washington Championship.  This year’s dates are April 20-23, 2023.  Click here for the application
