About Us

Our Story

Old Dominion Fast Draw (ODFD) was established in April 2008. Founding Members of the club worked very hard and we became a fully sanctioned club of the Cowboy Fast Draw Association (CFDA) in June 2008.

Cowboy Fast Draw is one of the “fastest AND fastest growing” Cowboy Shooting Sports in the world. It is a timed sport where participants with a Spirit and Love of the “OLD WEST” dress in 1800’s period clothing and compete with .45 caliber western style single action pistols.

There is nothing quite like standing on the shooting line with another Cowboy or Cowgirl, sixgun strapped on your hip, waiting on the light. You hear the command, “Shooters on the line”… “Shooters”… “Set”… then… BANG!!! What a RUSH!!

You just spent one of the fastest, adrenaline packed seconds of time you’ll ever experience! During that second, you drew your pistol, cocked the hammer, pointed it at a 2 feet in diameter round target 15 to 21 feet away, and fired a WAX bullet in hopes of hitting the target while beating the time of your opponent! In most events, the winner is the Gunfighter who hit the target with the fastest 3 out of 5 shots. The loser gets an “X” and the winners go on to the next contestant. Once an opponent gets three “X’s”, they are out of the competition. This continues till the last Cowboy and Cowgirl are standing!!

We play and compete while following the rules of the Cowboy Fast Draw Association. For more details on the CFDA, it rules, equipment guidelines, or for just more Cowboy Fast Draw info, go to www.cowboyfastdraw.com.

Come and shoot with us!! You’ll not only enjoy and be part of one of the most fun, exciting, adrenaline filled shooting sports, but you’ll also be spending time with some of the finest Cowboy and Cowgirls around! AND… you’ll be doing all this in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwest Virginia!

We are a sanctioned club of the Cowboy Fast Draw Association (CFDA) headquartered in Fallon Nevada. It is the fastest growing western shooting sport in the world. Cowboy Fast Draw has been featured on several TV shows
especially on the Outdoor Channel.

Cowboy Fast Draw is a shooting venue that relates back to the time period of 1870 to 1900 where the lore and legend of the “Gunfighter” was created. All of us grew up with memories of sitting in front of the TV watching
shows like “Gunsmoke”, “Have Gun Will Travel”, “Rawhide”, and many others. In our sport, we bring that era to life in a SAFE, exciting, and competitive shooting sport. Two competitors, dressed in period “Cowboy or
Gunfighter” attire will stand “side to side”, facing a 2 foot steel circle target 15 to 21 feet in front of them. They wait on the commands…. “Shooters Ready, Shooters…. Set!” Then between 2 to 5 seconds, a light in
the middle of the targets will come on simultaneously and the competitors will draw, cock their single action revolvers, and shoot WAX bullets at the targets. The shooter that “Hits” the target with the fastest time, recorded
by impact sensors on the targets, wins that shot. They keep doing this until one of the shooters gets 3 winning hits and is then declared winner of that round. It is a fun… adrenaline filled shooting sport that is safe,
competitive, and fun!! It is also a venue that teaches safe and proper gun handling skills in the process. You can check it out by going to the Cowboy Fast Draw Associations website at www.cowboyfastdraw.com.”
