Welcome to Cowboy Action Shooting at the Bar-E Ranch
The Barrie Gun Club is a SASS (Single Action Shooting Society) affiliated club and the Bar-E Ranch adheres to the rules and principles of SASS. Through our affiliation with SASS we are able to take advantage of being part of a global society with approximately 100,000 members.
The Bar-E Ranch is a dedicated group of like-minded shooters who are smitten by the fantasy and true grit of the “old west. Cowboy Action Shooting is a multi-faceted shooting sport in which contestants compete with firearms typical of those used in the taming of the Old West: single action revolvers, pistol caliber lever action rifles, and old time shotguns. The shooting competition is staged in a unique, characterized, “Old West” style. It is a timed sport in which shooters compete for prestige on a course of different shooting stages.
As the game of Cowboy Action Shooting has evolved, our members have developed and adopted an attitude towards their participation called “The Spirit of the Game.” It is a code by which we live. Competing in “The Spirit of the Game” means you fully participate in what the competition asks. You try your best to dress the part, use the appropriate competition tools, and respect the traditions of the Old West. Some folks would call it nothing more than good sportsmanship. We call it “Spirit of the Game.”
So if you want to try something unique, put a new spin on an old lifestyle and share great times with new friends, then come out and join an ever-growing group of people.
We hold practice matches every second and fourth Saturday of each month throughout the year.
