    Cowboy action shopoting is S.A.S.S.
    The Single Action Shooting Society

    The firearms are typical of those used in the Old West:
    single action revolvers,
    pistol caliber lever action rifles,
    old time shotguns

    check out http://www.sassnet.com/

    you can NOT use .30-30

    here is the shooters handbook with the rules from the above site

    To quote the movie Tombstone.


    bad guy to Doc Holliday:

    "You wanna draw? Heck, you're just a drunk piano player, you're probably seein' double"


    Doc Holliday:
    "Yeah I play, I'm you huckaberry,
    " I've got two guns, one for each of ya"


    Yes, its alota fun.
