Gunfighter Kevin Johnson of Mason City levels his pistols and prepares to unleash certain fury. Johnson is a member of the Cedar Valley Regulators, a cowboy action shooting group of Old West reenactors in eastern Iowa.
"Everybody wants to be a cowboy," Johnson said. "It's just about the simple life of the old days."
The group takes part in shooting events using authentic or replica firearms from the 1800's. Some of the members of the club have weapon collections valued at $50,000. They are judged on their precision and quickness against a wide range of targets.
