How many rounds


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I will be starting to shoot CAS this April here in Illinois. My question is, How many rounds do you need to compete in a day of shooting. Pistols , Rifle, and shotgun.

That will vary with the club. There are usually 10 rounds fired from two hand guns, either 9 or 10 rounds fired from a rifle and any where from 4 to 10 rounds fired from a shotgun, per stage. Again, depending on the club, some will shoot 4 stages in a day, or some clubs might shot 6 stages in a day. When our club has it's annual shoot we shoot 5 stages the first day and 5 stages the second day. A stage is made up of usually up to five targets for handguns, up to 10 targets at a different distance for rifles and as many as 6 targets for shotguns. The targets are shot in a different sequence at each stage. The shooters are told as a group what that sequence is and how the targets will be shot, then the shooters line up at a loading table to load their handguns and rifles. They advance to the firing position one at a time as called bringing their two handguns, the rifle and the shotgun with them. They lay their rifle and shotgun on a table near the firing position unless one of those weapons will be used first. After shooting the sequence the shooter will go to the unloading table are remove the empty brass from his handguns, another shooter at that table will check his guns to make sure they are not loaded before he leaves to place his guns back in his gun cart. Simple as that. At my clubs shoot you would use 60 rounds in your handguns, about 60 rounds in your rifle and somewhere between 20 and 40 shotshells to shoot 6 stages.

To take this a step further, most clubs operate under the rules set forth by SASS. Their rule book is on their web site and different rules depend on which category you are shooting in. The name of the game is always speed, the fastest shooter wins, but the win is nothing but bragging rights. You can use what they call two strong side holsters, or a holster on your strong side and a cross draw holster on the other side, for your two hand guns. You also need a belt of some kind to hold your shotgun shells, using a belt is better than using a slide for this purpose, and the shells should come out of the belt loops easily. Practice until you can pull at least two shells out at one time, three shells at a time is even better. I've posted a photo here of my own equipment to give you a better idea.
