A Shooters COWBOY HAT!

Rance - SASS # 54090

Recommended Posts

Was at a Cowboy Match last Sunday..


After the match we were sittin' around visiting.. and a pard said

"Rance.. your hat looks more like a farmers hat than a cowboy hat"..

Another pard said

"Rance.. looks a little bit stained and worn.. looks like it's been in a few too many rains"..


I told them that early last year I got a brand new Cowboy Hat.. styled especially for me..

It was a purty black one...


But I got ta thinkin' and expressed to them...


"I ain't learned nuthin' wearin' that new black hat..

All my learnin' was in this ol' gray hat".. that now looks like a farmers hat.. that I've worn fer years learnin' this sport..

I took it off and started kinda rollin' the front sides back up... they stayed a little bit..


It's got sweat stains.. water stains.. cartridge stains.. stains where my ammo & gun oiled dirty ol' hands take it off & on up on the pinch in the front.. :blush:


So I told them.. I went back to wearin' my Ol' hat that had all the knowledge in it.. :)


Got ta thinkin' this mornin' (yeah.. that gets scary) :wacko:

A whole lot of cowboy shootin' is in a shooters mind (brain)

Well my brain (and confidence) is inside that ol' cowboy hat..


Rance <_<

Just thinkin'

Up till last month all my "Cowboy Hats" were at least 30 years old ,,,, bought a new one made of Palm fibers ....


One I won fer winning "All a Round Cowboy" at a rodeo in June of 72 ..... But my faveroite is one i bought back 30 years or so ago it was all black,,, but now the top-side is wheather beaten to a brownish-black ....


My grey hat is older than I am and is in the best shape of all but my new hat ,,,, it was Grandads' Sunday Hat ....

The oldest cowboy hat I have is almost 16 years old.


I bought it while my wife was pregnant with my oldest girl.


Only problem is - it don't fit no more. :(


Still can't bear the thought of getting rid of it.


Even if it don't fit nobody in the house.


Have bought a few more hats since getting into CAS.


Maybe the new hats will soak up the knowledge needed to figure out some of these calls.

Rick, nearly all my hats are ones I bought when I was in my late teens, only the ones that were too big then fit me now. Took many years to get to where I could part with them, but if they aren't getting worn, might as well sell them and buy stuff I will use.
