The Spirit of the Game
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
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.
