SASS Wild Bunch Action Shooting is a multifaceted amateur shooting sport in which contestants compete with firearms typical of those used in the taming of the Old West just after the turn of the 20th century: 1911 semi-auto pistols, lever action rifles, and 1897 pump shotguns. The shooting competition is staged in a unique, characterized, Old West style. Contestants shoot in several one-to-three gun stages (courses of fire) in which they engage steel and/or cardboard targets. Scoring is based on accuracy and speed. The truly unique aspect of SASS Wild Bunch Action Shooting™ is the requirement placed on authentic period or western screen dress.
