Most people who reside in the greater Canton, Ohio area know Kames Sports for their wide selection of camping supplies, motocross gear, gun accessories, and more. However, what some people aren’t aware of is the fact that this local establishment has a long tradition of hosting family-friendly events for the community. Next month, Kames Sports will be providing their customers with the opportunity to see Cowboy Action Shooting™ live and in person, courtesy of the Tusco Long Riders. Those who are fascinated by the culture of the “Old West” are invited to take part in the shooting demonstration and other fun activities that will follow.

kames sports_tuscoTusco Long Riders’ Day is scheduled to take place on March 12th from 10am-6pm. During this time, residents from all over Akron, Canton, New Philadelphia, and beyond will be encouraged to speak with the members of this club about their shooting equipment, costumes, aliases, and more. Cowboy Action Shooting™ really is an interesting sport, but many people are unaware that it even exists! The Tusco Long Riders’ mission is to help preserve the sport and teach others about the exciting world of Cowboy Action Shooting™.

Not only will visitors have the chance to learn about the SASS (Single Action Shooting Society), have photos taken with the Tusco Long Riders, and listen to Destination Outdoors’ live remote from 10am-12pm, but they’ll also be able to test their own skills in a shooting competition.

“This event is very different from past Tusco days. This year our customers can actually shoot a competitive stage with real cowboy guns under expert supervision. We will be shooting WAX bullets so there is no danger for customers or staff. Customers will also be able to watch state and national champions shoot in a head-to-head competition on the same stage.” -Jeff Snook, Sales Manager

The challenge will be open to the first 100 customers over twelve years of age who visit Kames Sports during this family-friendly event. Participants must sign two release forms—one for Kames and one for the Tusco Long Riders. Please note that any minors who wish to compete must be accompanied by a guardian.

This family-friendly event is one that local gun enthusiasts won’t want to miss, especially if they’re interested in guns and accessories from the “Old West.” Additional information about Tusco Long Riders’ Day can be found on Kames’ Facebook page, as well as their website at Any questions about the shooting competition or Destination Outdoors’ remote show can be addressed by calling Kames Sports at 330.499.4558.
