Cowboy Action Shooting Club


Howdy Pardners!

We are a close knit bunch of Cowboy Action Shooters associated with the Single Action
Shooters Society (SASS).  The Single Action Shooters Society (SASS) is an international
organization created to preserve and promote the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting. SASS
endorses matches  conducted by affiliated clubs, promulgates rules and procedures to ensure
safety and consistency in Cowboy Action Shooting matches, and seeks to protect its members'
2nd Amendment rights.

SASS members share a common interest in preserving the history of the Old West and
competitive shooting.  One of the unique aspects of SASS approved Cowboy Action Shooting is
the requirement placed on costuming. Each participant is required to adopt a shooting alias
appropriate to a character or profession of the late 19th century, a Hollywood western star, or an
appropriate character from fiction. Their costume is then developed accordingly. Many
event participants gain more enjoyment from the costuming aspect of our sport than from
the shooting competition, itself. Regardless of a SASS member's individual area of
interest, SASS events provide regular opportunities for fellowship and fun with like-minded
folks and families.

Cowboy Action Shooting is a multi-faceted shooting sport in which contestants compete
with firearms typical of those used in the taming of the Old West: single action revolvers,
pistol caliber lever action rifles, and old time shotguns. The shooting competition is
staged in a unique, characterized, "Old West" style. It is a timed sport in which shooters
compete for prestige on a course of different shooting stages.

As the game of Cowboy Action Shooting has evolved, SASS members have developed
and adopted an attitude towards their participation called "The Spirit of the Game". It is a
code by which we live. Competing in "The Spirit of the Game" means you fully
participate in what the competition asks. You try your best to dress the part, use the
appropriate competition tools, and respect the traditions of the Old West. Some folks
would call it nothing more than good sportsmanship. We call it "Spirit of the Game".

Our monthly match takes place on the 4th Saturday at our home range, Port Malabar Rifle
and Pistol Club, located at the south end of Hurley Blvd., in Palm Bay, FL.  Registration is from
8:30 to 9:30, with a mandatory shooters meeting at 9:45. Lead starts flying at 10:00.  Cookies
and tea are served during the awards ceremony, after the match, and all participants receive
ribbons. Cost is merely $10.00 per shooter (juniors shoot for free). Camaraderie and comedic
harassment are FREE. Come on out and enjoy our match!
