WHAT IS SASS?
Sass is the Single Action Shooting Society is an international organization created to preserve and promote the fast growing sport of Cowboy Action Shooting™. SASS endorses Regional matches conducted by affiliated clubs and annually produces END of TRAIL, the World Championship of Cowboy Action Shooting & Wild West Jubilee™. Cowboy Action Shooting™ is a multifaceted amateur shooting sport in which contestants compete with firearms typical of those used in the taming of the Old West: single action revolvers; lever action rifles; and side by side double barreled, pre-1899 pump, or lever action shotguns. The shooting competition is staged in a unique, characterized, Old West style.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU SHOOT?
The Green Mountain Regulators shoot monthly on the fourth Saturday of the month. We also hold an annual Regulator's Revenge Match and many themed matches throughout the year. There are a few other SASS Affiliated clubs in nearby in Central Texas (as well as all over the rest of the United States), and we encourage everyone to get the most out of the Cowboy Action experience by visiting other clubs as well. Someone is always shooting somewhere.
The Green Mountain Regulators Long Range shots the fourth Sunday of the month.

WHY USE ALIASES AND COSTUMING?
One of the unique aspects of SASS approved Cowboy Action Shooting™ is the requirement placed on costuming. Each participant is required to adopt a shooting alias appropriate to a character or profession of the late 19th century, a Hollywood western star, or an appropriate character from fiction. Their costume is then developed accordingly. Many event participants gain more enjoyment from the costuming aspect of our sport than from the shooting competition, itself. Regardless of a SASS member's individual area of interest, SASS events provide regular opportunities for fellowship and fun with like-minded folks and families.
WHAT KIND OF FIREARMS CAN I USE?
The firearms used in the matches are 2 single action revolvers, a pistol caliber lever-action rifle, and either a Winchester 1897 pump, or double barrel shotgun (usually one of the coach gun styles). Most of the guns used are replicas of actual firearms from the 1800s time period. You will also need "leather" (holsters for your pistols, and cartridge belts for pistol and shotgun ammo) and a gun cart for moving your equipment around the range at matches. Lots of options available here as well. GMR has a couple of loaner gun carts and holsters available for use until you decide what you want.
If you're going to purchase equipment, we recommend coming to see a match first. You can learn a lot by talking to experienced shooters, who are usually very willing to help. There are lots of gun choices and it is recommended to shoot some of the different types so you can find what works for you before invesing in guns. These conversations and test firing some options can keep a new shooter from buying equipment that really doesn't suit his, or her, needs.
WHAT IS SPIRIT OF THE GAME?
As the game of Cowboy Action Shooting™ has evolved, our members have developed and adopted an attitude towards their participation called "The Spirit of the Game." It is a code by which we live. Competing in "The Spirit of the Game" means you fully participate in what the competition asks. You try your best to dress the part, use the appropriate competition tools, and respect the traditions of the Old West. Some folks would call it nothing more than good sportsmanship. We call it "Spirit of the Game."
