BLUE RIVER REGULATORS
The Blue River Regulators were formed to provide an outlet for Western Action Shooting in southeast Nebraska. Our range is located 18 miles NW of Lincoln, NE. We hold regular monthly shoots April through October. We also hold an annual 3 day shoot named the “Ruckus at Raccoon Forks” on the 2nd weekend of September. Monthly Shooting fees are $10, junior (12-17) shoot free. Ammo requirements are approx. 30-75 pistol (depending on class), 60-75 rifle and 25 shotgun. Please see “The Shootist” for exact time and dates.
We encourage visitors and new shooters to come out and join us. Dress as western as possible. We have classes for 2 guns (rifle/revolver); 3 guns (rifle/ 2 revolvers) and 4 guns (rifle/2 revolvers/shotgun). All firearms must be original or replicas of firearms available during the old west period of 1865-1899 (see approved firearm list at www.ncows.org). Original & reproduction revolvers produced by Colt, Smith &Wesson & Remington as well as a variety of Cap & Ball revolvers are all good choices in approved calibers. Original & reproduction Lever Action & Pump Rifles produced by Winchester & Marlin chambered for approved revolver calibers will also be good choices. For shotguns, original and reproductions of single or double barrel break top models as well as pump and lever action models produced by a variety of manufacturers available during our period. If you do not have all the correct firearms, you can share guns or we will lend you what you need (bring own ammo 45LC/12ga.). The range has restroom facilities (outhouses) and several watering stations. The club provided a free lunch; bring your own drinks if you want something other than water. We have a covered picnic shelter. The authentic look of the western era (1865-1899) is as important to our posse as the shooting. Membership in the Blue River Regulators is $20 the first year and $10 a year to renew. Additional family members may join for $10 the first year and $5 a year to renew. Membership in NCOWS is required before joining the club. We strongly recommend membership in the NRA.
