View Full Version : CAS question

November 21, 2002, 01:58 PM
I was wondering if it is possible to only shoot side matches or if you have to take part in the main matches as well. I am particularly interested in the long range percision shooting, the wife let me buy a Pedersoli Sharps in 45-90 for an early x-mas present. I am also interested in possibly shooting Plainsman with the 2 Colt 1860 Armys that I own. Any info as well as contacts in the Twin Cities area of MN would be greatly appreciated.

I really depends on the match as the whether non-shooters (or conventioneers) can shoot all side matches. Usually, there is a stage set up, with loaner guns, for conventioneers to shoot. If you have a particular match in mind, the best thing to do is to call the match director and ask.

I would check gun clubs in your area for Black Powder Cartridge Rifle long range matches. Even if you don't want to shoot BP, most BPCR matches allow smokeless ammo.

Go to www.sassnet.com and click on the "Affiliated Clubs" link. You'll find a number of clubs in your area.
