We will be holding ASI matches as a way for new pistol shooters, pistol owners and concealed carry permit holders to have fun with the ACTION SHOOTING INTERNATIONAL® program (ASI). ASI provides an opportunity for pistol owners to shoot under the direction of highly experienced Range Safety Officers in a new and fun way. Thorough safety instruction and supervision will be provided.
When do the matches take place?
The 3rd Saturday of each month (September's match will be on 9/20 then return to normal schedule
The Range will be closed from 8:30am to 1:00 - 1:30pm.
Schedule for the event:
Typical “courses of fire” include:
Movement from one shooting position to the next
Multiple targets in each array
Shooting around doors, through “windows”,
around barricades and various types of “cover”
A shooting experience that is very different from target shooting
What is required to participate?
A “safe” .380, .38, 9mm, .40 or .45 handgun. A revolver or semi-automatic. The Range Safety Officers will approve the gun to be used.
50 rounds of ammo
A holster may be used if you have one, if not – your course of fire can start from a table, drawer, or with the gun already in your hand.
We recommend that you have two magazines or speed loaders. Magazine pouches will be a benefit if you have them. Reloading with a magazine or speed loader from your pocket is allowed – no reloading with loose rounds.
Participants will have a chance to shoot four “stages of fire” (see example). Participants are scored based on elapsed time and accuracy.
While experienced competitors are welcome, ASI matches are not designed for them. ASI matches cater to shooters with limited to no experience in Action Shooting. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, non-intimidating event for shooters of all skill levels.
ASI provides an opportunity for new shooters to get a more-relaxed glimpse into what the action shooting sports and/or the “gun schools” (such as Front Sight and Gunsite) teach – but without the high intensity. You don't need to be an athlete to shoot ASI events – just be safe and have fun!
$20.00 - SVRC Members & Non-Members
$10.00 - Range Officers that run the squads (2 per squad)
$5.00 - Children Under 15
As a rule, new shooters are expected to become an ASI member after they’ve had a chance to shoot a match or two. The cost is $35 per year.
