Action Shotgun is a fun, fast paced game where 12 steel targets ranging from 8″ diameter to 16″ x 16″ targets of generous size are used. Reactive targets such as falling plates are also used when practical to enhance shooter feedback and spectator appeal. A full match consists of four stages of 12 targets so two boxes of shotgun shells work out perfectly.
Being a timed event, targets are engaged as quickly as possible. Your shotgun is reloaded as you go through the course of fire and total time is recorded. Penalty time is added for misses or engaging the targets in the incorrect order. Scores are posted on the forum so you can watch your progress over time.
We have 3 classes you can enter based on you shotgun. Anything from a double barreled shotgun to fully modified tactical shotgun may be used.
New shooters are always welcome. Come out and give it a try. You’ll have a lot of fun. This is an eligible discipline for a sign off for all new members.
There’s more to the game than just shooting, Shooters are encouraged to help in setting up the match, resetting targets, judging the shooter, clearing spent hulls and handing out water etc.
Action Shotgun is not intended to be a precision shooting competition. Small targets and long distances take the “action” out of the game and make it more discouraging for newer shooters, so targets are of ample size
This is a SASS approved discipline. All Action Shotgun RO’s re-qualified annually.
Action Shotgun is open to all club members.
