This is AGI’s new Cowboy Action Shooting Course featuring two times World Champion, Lefty Longridge. This SASS and Cowboy 3-Gun World
Champion (aka Sergeant, Joe Alesia, Los Angeles County Sheriffs Deputy, Tactical Instructor and Training Supervisor) takes you through a basic training
course in the most popular and fastest growing shooting game in the world, Cowboy Action Shooting.
As Lefty says, “This is a fantasy sport. For those of us who grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons, followed by the adventures of Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill Hickock, Roy Rodgers, Gene Autry, Wagon Train, Gunsmoke, and Rawhide in the evenings, this is like having died and gone to Cowboy Heaven. You not only get to choose an old west name, and dress up like your favorite cowboy hero, but you get to shoot their cowboy guns in friendly family competition! It just does not get much better than that and still be legal.”
You can show up at your local cowboy club on any given Sunday with no equipment or experience and the members will loan you guns and ammo and coach you through your first course of fire. These are the friendliest and most helpful people in the shooting sports, according to those who know. Once you have fired your first match with borrowed equipment you will be hooked forever. You will even be home free with your wife because as soon as she sees the neat Victorian clothes worn by the other women, your bank account will be in serious jeopardy!
Joe takes the time to go into serious detail about the history, clothes, equipment, and match action in cowboy action shooting. You will get a champions (and highly sought after trainers) tips on selecting guns and leather, as well as the actual shooting. Learn the proper stance, sighting, grip, trigger control, and target engagement. Learn how to overcome the most common impediments to competitive scoring. Besides covering the basics of shooting the handguns, rifles, and shotguns of the sport, Lefty, is even gracious enough to teach those he considers to be afflicted with the too common birth defect of being right handed the proper methods of combat loading the ubiquitous model 97 Winchester pump shotgun.
