Wild Bunch


What is Wild Bunch Action Shooting?

In the world of SASS, Wild Bunch Action Shooting is referred to as 'The Hottest Game' in town. It is similar to Cowboy Action Shooting, however, Wild Bunch employs turn of the century Winchester shotguns such as model 1897 and model 12 (or reproductions), and the lever action rifles are .40 cal or larger. But the most exciting piece of equipment is the 1911 pistol chambered in 45acp. For more information check out the link above.

Wild Bunch at the BBRR

The Beau Bassin Range Riders have a small, but growing interest in Wild Bunch Action Shooting. We first introduced Wild Bunch Action Shooting to our club in 2013 when we held our first Outlaw Wild Bunch Competition. It was intended to be a 'one-time-only' match, however, it soon became popular and now it is a regular event. It is still new to us and we have less than 10 shooters in the region who actually shoot SASS Wild Bunch. Therefore, to increase interest and participation we will continue to offer our homegrown version of Outlaw Wild Bunch.
We will hold SASS Sanctioned Wild Bunch matches in August during our Annual Double B Shootout Event.

To ensure we adhere to the SASS rules for Wild Bunch we thought it prudent to get some proper training, and on August 7th and 8th of 2014 we were fortunate to have Legendary Lawman and the beautiful Serenity visiting us for our Annual Match. They offered to conduct a Wild Bunch RO course for some of our members and now we are proud to say that we have
4 certified Wild Bunch ROs. We are the First SASS Wild Bunch Range Officers in the Atlantic Provinces.

If you are interested in joining us for a match, either as a shooter or spectator, or if you have any questions, please send email to Capt. Cutter. Training is also available for those who are interested.
