Cowboy action shooting is a fun and fast-paced shooting competition.

Are you as fast as this guy?

Cowboy action shooting is like an Old West three-gun contest.

Contestants use guns, or replicas of guns from the Old West, including single-action revolvers, lever-action rifles in pistol calibers and double barrel or hammered-pump shotguns.

Each contestant chooses his or her alias and dresses in period clothing. This makes attending a cowboy action shooting match feel like walking back in time.
