The Spirit of the Game 
     Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS) is a shooting sport in which contestants compete with firearms typical of those used in the Old West-single action revolvers, lever action or slide rifles, and double barreled, lever action or slide action shotguns. The shooting competition is staged in a unique, Old West style.
The firearms are those typical of the American Frontier from about 1860 to 1899.  During a match, contestants shoot in several sages using 3-4 guns, 1-2 pistol, one rifle and one shotgun. while firing at steel targets. Scoring is based on accuracy  and speed.

Perhaps the most unique aspect of Cowboy Action Shooting is the fun to adopt a shooting alias appropriate to a character or profession of the late 19th century, or a Hollywood western star, and develop a costume accordingly. Shooters are divided into categories and classes depending upon the type of firearms used and the style in which they shoot.

Cowboy Action Shooting is not a fast draw style of competition. Shooters' will find movement and plenty of action as they use all three styles oft t firearms during engagement. CAS is designed for all levels of shooters. Targets are generous in size and placed at a proximity such that the difficulty or challenge competitors face is primarily the speed they engage a course of fire. However, one learns soon enough that no target is too big or too close that you can't miss it.

The appeal of CAS lies in the fact that it is a family oriented, recreational activity that is great fun. Shooters can compete and enjoy the sport at any skill level. This promotes the values often referred to as the spirit of the game, and is perhaps best shown by the friends made while sharing a mutual appreciation of what is the legend of America's most colorful and exciting period, the Old West. Remember JOHN WAYNE can do no wrong.

Cowboy Action Shooting is the fastest growing shooting sport in the country. You don't have to be good to attend these matches, just safe. Everyone is welcome from novice to gunsling
