Clothing and Accouterments:
Cowboy Action Shooting™ is a combination of historical reenactment and Saturday morning at the matinee. Participants may choose the style of costume they wish to wear, but all clothing must be typical of the late 19th century, a B-Western movie, or Western television series. SASS puts a great deal of emphasis on costuming because it adds so much to the uniqueness of our game and helps create a festive, informal atmosphere that supports the friendly, fraternal feeling we encourage in our competitors.
All shooters must be in costume, and we encourage guests and family also to be costumed.
All clothing and equipment MUST be worn appropriately, how it was intended and how it would have been worn in the OLD WEST or as seen on B-Western movies and television.
Cost: Matches are $15.00 for S.B.R.&G.C. members. Non S.B.R.&G.C. members pay $20.00
Sunday School is FREE to S.B.R.&G.C. members. Non-members pay $25.00
We shoot at the South Bay Rod and Gun Club located at 1020 Marron Valley Rd., San Diego, CA 91917 (few minutes from downtown San Diego).
Take Highway 94 East, past the little town of Dulzura, to Marron Valley Road. Marron Valley Road comes up quick just a mile or so past Dulzura, so keep an eye out for it and turn right. Follow the dirt-gravel road for a couple of miles, all the way back to the end and turn right, into the South Bay Rod and Gun Club. Once you get up to the club’s shooting range, follow the signs to “Cowboy Action Shooting.”
