My Movie, it is coming out in January called The Adventures Of Pepper and Paula.  It is based on some of my life story.  Cimarron is one of the sponsors of it and of course some of the clothing and guns were used in it especially my guns.  Also I was on America's Got Talent in 2013 and of course using Cimarron's guns.

"I love to twirl Cimarrons because they are very balanced guns right off the shelf and they are very sturdy guns for shooting. But most of all, the people are very nice and friendly to deal with, especially the ones that do my fine tuning on my guns. So if you are looking for a well priced and durable gun Cimarron is the way to go!” -Pistol Packin' Paula

Jim Rogers' CMSA video - Jim Rogers website

"Cimarron Single Actions are at the top of my list for balance, reliability and authenticity. Attention to detail makes the Cimarron look and feel just like the originals of the late 1800s. They have all of the correct period markings, bevels, and millings. No other brand has this complete detail, not even Colt. I now compete with a pair of the new Stainless Steel Models. In my opinion they are the finest Competition Single Action available today." -Jim Rodgers

Clayton Marxer "The Adventure Cowboy"

Clayton Marxer is a genuine cowboy who comes from the high-mountain cattle country along the border of Montana and Idaho. 

Clayton has been fascinated with firearms since he was a toddler. At age 7, he started hunting small game and varmints with a lever action Daisy BB gun, a passion which would develop in him over the years into what he is today. As a young man he was a member of the 4-H Shooting Sports program, and eventually won many tournaments and contests as a 4-position shooter. At the age of 12, Clayton started using the skills and knowledge, which he had developed as a competitive shooter, to begin his career of big-game hunting. Eventually, Clayton transitioned away from competition shooting, and focused his shooting and training on the hunting sport.

Clayton has has hunted with many different weapons over the years, and he appreciates the challenge that each type of weapon brings. Whether hunting with archery equipment, pistol, scoped rifle, or iron-sighted rifle, he loves the adventure. Of all of the weapons that Clayton uses, his favorite are the traditional cowboy guns that won the west. His main hunting rifle is a Cimarron "Billy Dixon" 1874 Sharps in 45-70.

Clayton recently was featured on a hit hunting TV show where he dropped an elk in it's tracks with a standing, off-hand shot at well over 200 yards away with his Cimarron Sharps.  He is also an actor, stuntman, and assistant armorer on a western film series which is currently in production. His Cimarron "Billy Dixon" will be featured throughout the film, as well as, several other Cimarron firearms. The film series is currently set to release around July 4th, 2016.

 Firearms are an important tool for Clayton. As a big-game hunting guide and an avid hunter himself, Clayton depends on firearms to function correctly and safely, often in extreme conditions. Over the years, he has seen virtually every type of rifle be used for hunting, and knows the value of a quality firearm first-hand. That is why he chooses Cimarron Firearms as his source for quality cowboy guns.
