ABOUT OUR POSSE

The Great Lakes Freight and Mining Co. is a Posse of the National Congress of Old West Shootists (NCOWS). The Great Lakes Freight and Mining Co. also has been designated as a Living Museum by the State of Indiana.

We hold monthly Western Action Shoots on the First Saturday of each month at Indian Trails Sporting Clays, 7490 S. Indian Trail Road, Modoc, IN. We shoot using the rules established by National Congress of Old West Shootists.

Long Range Rifle matches are held on the Second Saturday of the month from April through October, using NCOWS appoved firearms and shot at ranges up to 500 yards at a range in Straughn, IN. Registration begins at 9:00 AM, and following a brief Safety Meeting, shooting begins at 10:00AM.

We also have staged reenactments on the now defunct Carthage-Knightstown-Shirley Railroad and for other outfits. Reenactors must be members of GLFMC or the National Congress of Old West Shootists (NCOWS) to participate.
