Greatest Competition ever?

New Competition - Invitation to Join

Noticed a fellow posted back in May about joining in for the "Greatest Competition Ever"........ I'm not sure how that turned out, and don't want to rattle any cages myself, but some pals and I have put together something we think is a good deal of fun, and as far as we can tell, no one else has taken the trouble to organize anything like it before, so here's the deal:

American SlugShooting Association Invitation To Join

This is by way of introducing a new group, a new Internet Presence, and a Completely new form of firearms competition, where anyone can compete against everyone in the nation, and have their scores judged and published, without having to ever leave town or travel farther than their local outdoor range. ASSA is an organization created exclusively for those hunters, target shooters, and professionals who are shotgun slug shooters. Not Riflemen, Not Pistoleros, Not PaintBall players. All fine people, of course, but they already have their Clubs, their Events, and their Competitions. This is just for the SlugShooters. Everyone "behind the scenes" at ASSA has a long term attachment to slug shooting, slug guns, and the challenge of extracting the greatest possible degree of accuracy from both the guns and the shells used in them. We all know its not easy, but we also know we can beat lots of the rifle guys most of the time. With the creation of this Association and the organization operating it, we are working toward bringing all the practitioners of this unique shooting discipline into contact with one another. We have seen that in general SlugShooters (That's Us Too) are not found in great numbers in any one geographic area of the country, and indeed may find themselves to be the only ones at their local gun club or shooting range who are really pursuing this sport on a year round basis. Sure, all the members of your club or your hunting buddies take an interest in your sport during the shotguns-only deer season, but the rest of the year you, and we, are generally doing our tests and our practice shooting alone. To address that issue, and to make it possible for you, the SlugShooter, to finally have a broad base of like-minded sportsmen to interact with, to compare notes, and to improve the sport, we have set up the ASSA site exclusively for you. Now you can contact SlugShooters from all over the country, see what their experiences have been with the sport, and discover what a variety of people have chosen to become involved with it. As a member of American Slugshooters Association, ASSA, you can now become a part of a growing group of like-minded individuals whose passion is for the heavy shot with the pinpoint accuracy out to 100 yards and beyond. If you choose to become a Competition Member, you can participate in a monthly contest against members nationwide, to see how you stack up against the best in the sport. Membership is inexpensive, and competition requires no big travel expense either. As long as there is a shooting range or gun club in your area that can verify your results, you can compete with everyone in the nation who joins in, and we'll publish the results on this site every month, along with the guns and ammo that were used to be the winner. We invite you to join us today. Please go to the Membership pages to learn more about it, and take a peek at the Competition Rules as well. We think you'll want to sign up today!

PS: We've set up what we think is a decent freebie just lately; TWO YEARS FREE MEMBERSHIP for anyone who joins NRA or renews their membership throught the links on the NRA page on our website. The least we can do for our allies in Virginia, the National Rifle Association.
