DISCRIPTION There is also a competitive side to “Cowboy Action Shooting”. The Single Action Shooting Society is a world wide organization that provides state, regional, national and world championships. The firearms we use are known as “cowboy guns”. This is because these guns were featured in the popular “Old West” cowboy tv shows and movies that started in the 1900’s through present day. These guns include single action pistols, lever action rifles, and western style shotguns (double barrel-side by side, the 1897 pump and lever action shotguns). The participants are required to wear clothing that is reflective of the period or featured in western movies and TV shows. If you do not have any of the guns required come on out to the match anyway. The match director, World Champion, “Lefty Longridge “, aka Joe Alesia, will show you the necessary guns and equipment to get started!
