The quickest gunslingers in the nation are coming to the O.K. Corral.
Next weekend, April 8 through 10, some of the fastest shooting men and women in the country will be there participating in a fast draw competition.
In association with Tucson's Old Pueblo Gunfighters, the O.K. Corral will host the Four Corners Cowboy Fast Draw Association Territorial Championship.
Many nationally known shooters will be taking part in the competition, including several men and women who hold the title for "Fastest Gun Alive."
Local big names will also be competing, such as Francis Carlos, aka The Draw, from Apache Junction, who is a two-time national champion, and Ashley Robles, aka Little Ashes 2 Ashes, who currently holds the 2011 Arizona State Champion in the Youth Girls division.
The members of the Cowboy Fast Draw Association use replicas of 1880s Colt .45 revolvers loaded with wax bullets.
"Not using real bullets keeps the camaraderie of the contestants and the competition going," said Robert Love, owner of the O.K. Corral.
With their Colt .45s, the shooters will have to hit a target that is two feet in diameter and 21 feet away.
The targets have a light in the center that signals the shooter when to draw and fire their gun. While competitors do not get to decide when to shoot, the winner will boast a fast draw time between three and four tenths of a second.
Faster than a blink of an eye is what the shooters use to describe their fast draws.
Sporting cowboy and cowgirl themed names, shooters dress in 1880s attire, just as if they were walking the streets of town more than a century ago. The cocking and shooting of those single-action revolvers keeps the feeling of the Old West alive.
"I can't think of any better place to do it than Tombstone," said Greg Johnson, a tourist visiting from Texas. "I grew up reading books and watching old Western movies about Tombstone. I wish I could stick around here for an extra week to enjoy the competition."
There will be a total of 110 contestants competing in the preliminary rounds on Friday and Saturday, which will start at 9 a.m. By the end of the day on Saturday, the final seven contestants will be named.
The "Magnificent Seven" will compete in the Fast Draw Finals inside the O.K. Corral at 11 a.m. on Sunday.
The winner of the men's and women's divisions will receive a $1,000 cash prize.
"All of the events will be totally free, and it will be a great time to come enjoy a day or weekend seeing fast draw in Tombstone," said President and Founder Anthony "Buckshot" Chavez of the Old Pueblo Gunfighters.
