Action Target the Official Manufacturer of SASS Cowboy Action TargetsIndustry News, OCF, SASS News Tuesday, August 16th, 2011
FOUNDERS RANCH, EDGEWOOD, NM – The Single Action Shooting Society announces that Action Target is the official target manufacturer for their group of Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS) enthusiasts.
This announcement runs in tandem with Action Target being named the official target manufacturer for the world’s largest Cowboy Action Shooting competition, End of Trail. SASS and Action Target have been working together for many years. Action Targets have been used with increasing frequency at regional, state and club Cowboy Action Shooting matches. They have also been the preferred choice for various other CAS events.
This prompted Action Target to work with SASS World Champion Evil Roy (aka: Gene Pearcey) to develop the industry’s most portable, economical, durable and independently reviewed steel target, the Evil Roy Practice Target. The Evil Roy target has been through some of the most grueling and comprehensive torture tests, but it performs each and every time. It is because of this reliability the SASS has chosen Action Targets for its Founders Ranch events.
“When World Championships are on the line only the best will do and Action Target is the best.” commented Coyote Calhoun (aka: Lamar Shelnutt) Marketing Director of SASS and Co-Match Director of END of TRAIL.
SASS’ newest shooting sport Wild Bunch Action Shooting®, with costuming and firearms based on the period just after the turn of the 20th century, depicted by the 1969 Sam Peckinpah’s movie “The Wild Bunch” will use the more extensive line of reactive Action Targets. The sport employs the use of a 1911 pistol rather than single action revolvers, SASS legal pump shotguns and lever action rifles. All pistols and rifles used in Wild Bunch Action Shooting require 40-to-45 caliber ammunition.
