WESTERN COWBOY

Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS) was started in California in the early 1980s. Since then, the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) and CAS has spread around the world in what is likely, the fastest growing discipline in the shooting sports. This a very unique discipline where period dress and scenario based courses of fire, produce a social yet competitive atmosphere.

TO PARTICIPATE FULLY, YOU REQUIRE:
  • Pistol caliber lever action rifle (.45 Colt, 44-40, 38 Special, 44 magnum).
  • Two single action revolvers.
  • Either a double barrel shotgun with no ejectors or a pump shotgun with an external hammer.
Duct taping a claw hammer to the butt of a modern pump action shotgun was one of the first things outlawed by the SASS rule book.

Members of the Single Action Shooting Society shoot using an alias. Some will have elaborate costumes that flesh out their “aliases” and chosen characters to add an historical dimension to the sport.

Cowboys weren’t fashion models. A pair of jeans, a work shirt and boots and a hat is a fair approximation of what the cowboy wore anyway and will do fine to start.
