Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS, also known as Western Action Shooting, Single Action Shooting, or Cowboy 3-Gun) is a competitive shooting sport that originated in Southern California, US, in the early 1980s. Cowboy action shooting is now practiced in many places with several sanctioning organizations including the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS), Western Action Shootists Association (WASA), and National Congress of Old West Shooters (NCOWS), as well as others in the US and in other countries.
CAS is a type of multi-gun match utilizing a combination of pistol(s), rifle, and/or shotgun in a variety of “old west themed” courses of fire for time and accuracy. Participants must dress in appropriate theme or era outfitters “costume” as well as use gear and accessories as mandated by the respective sanctioning group rules.

Whether you are a cowgirl from New York City or a cowboy from Etna Wyoming, head on out to our shooting area, just 6 minutes from Jackson, Wyoming! We use the Jackson Hole Gun Club near Yellowstone National Park, and our founder Shepard Humphries believes that safety is #1 priority. His numerous safety certifications and training credentials, combined with his history as a police SWAT operator cause him to insist upon safety. After many years of shooting, his study and observations have led him to conclude that drawing from the holster and re-holstering are some of the most dangerous parts of shooting. Humphries believes that the most fun aspects of shooting, hitting steel targets, can be achieved while making the dangerous parts much safer! it is not responsible to ask a person just entering a dangerous sport to do the most dangerous part of that sport, “as fast as they can” says Humphries.
