Cimarron Firearms Proudly Announce the “Young Guns” of 2018 

Congratulations to the four winners of the 2018 Cimarron Firearms 4th Annual Young Guns program.

2018 Cimarron Firearms Young Guns (L to R): Joseph “South Paw Slim” Hornick, Kristen “Miss Half Pint Kay” Aldridge, Stefan “Fast Fingers” Marinic and Malyssa “TN Missy” Maynard.

Cimarron Firearms, a leader in authentic replicas from America’s Old West, is proud to announce the winners of the 4th Annual Young Guns program. Congratulations to Stefan “Fast Fingers” Marinic, Malyssa “TN Missy” Maynard, Joseph “South Paw Slim” Hornick and Kristen “Miss Half Pint Kay” Aldridge on becoming Cimarron Firearms Young Guns for 2018.

The Young Guns program, in partnership with Uberti®, mentors young shooters in the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting. Uberti provides each Young Gunner with a pair of Thunderstorm revolvers ready for competition action.

As part of the application process, the teenagers must be between the ages of 13 and 18 years old and members of the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS). The applicants created a video about themselves outlining why they wanted to become a Cimarron Young Gun and why they love Cowboy Action Shooting. Besides a video, each applicant was also interviewed by phone. All four 2018 winners were in the 8th and 9th grades and are very active in their communities, schools and churches. All of the winners were introduced early to the shooting sports or Cowboy Action Shooting and are members of their local SASS clubs, participating in multiple competitions.

“The Young Guns program, sponsored this year by Uberti, was eagerly received by kids from all over the United States,” Bryce Wayt, VP of Retail Operations, said. “It is very encouraging to see youngsters get bitten by the Cowboy Action Shooting bug and the level at which they are competing at in just a few years. Our thanks to Uberti for the beautiful Model P Thunderstorm revolver sets for the winners. Uberti is as dedicated as we are at Cimarron Firearms to continuing the legacy of Old West firearms and the great shooting sport of Cowboy Action.”
