Cowboy Action Shooting
Cowboy Action Shooting is one of fastest growing disciplines in the shooting sports. Matches are designed around scenarios and firearms taken from the historic period of the 'Old West' in the United States.
Competition with Rifle, Shotgun and Pistol is governed by the Single Action Shooting Society (S.A.S.S.). Competition has the added facet of a living history aspect. Competitors must choose a singular 'Nickname' and develop a costume and persona to use during competition. If you are interested in getting involved in this sport go to SASS for more information.
There are numerous categories in which to compete for men, women and youth.
