Single Action Shooting Society is an international organization created to preserve and promote the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting.
Cowboy Action Shooting is a multi-faceted shooting sport in which contestants compete with firearms typical of those used in the taming of the Old West: single action revolvers, pistol caliber lever action rifles, and old time shotguns. The shooting competition is staged in a unique, characterized, "Old West" style. It is a timed sport in which shooters compete for prestige on a course of different shooting stages.
SASS members share a common interest in preserving the history of the Old West and competitive shooting.
