So You Wanna Be A Cowboy – Here’s How!

No longer content to read a western in the comfort of an easy chair? Do you occasionally get the itch to strap on a gunbelt and swagger out with a blazing six-shooter? Of course you do. But in these repressive times you need to be careful where you swagger and where you’re pointing that pistol, pilgrim! SASS (Single-Action Shooting Society) may have a club near you. SASS is the predominant organization behind a sport known as “Cowboy Action Shooting” which is the fastest growing sport in the United States. Men, women and youngsters alike all enjoy shooting safely with their trail pards. NOTE: Cowboy Action Shooting is not a “re-enactor’s” sport. The guns are real and we use live ammunition shooting at stationary metal targets. To participate you’ll need a shotgun, a rifle, two six-shooters, a holster and at least a cowboy hat. You get to pick your own alias such as “Buckshot Smith” or “Dandy Derringer Jones.” SASS has clubs in England,  Canada, Australia and every state in the Union.
