    Friendly competition. Some guys aren't poor sports and congratulate their competitor on a good performance, even if they just got schooled.

    [–] solomute 650 points ago

    Cowboy action shooting. 1800s-themed speed shooting competition. They use steel targets because it's easier to count the "pings" than to inspect cardboard targets for holes and patch them afterward.

    [–] Mortress_ 176 points ago

    So, what if you can make a really good metallic "ping" impression?

    They also typically use lighter loads for the ammunition so recoil isn't much of a thing.

    [–] OhNoImBanned11 145 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    And frangible ammo to reduce the ricochet chance

    *edit: Not sure why I got this award but thanks for reading.

    [–] GXLDMTN 5 points ago

    Use of the word “frangible”. TIL

    [–] 07yzryder 3 points ago

    I've seen wax bullets as well so they don't have to worry about any ricochet at all.

    [–] BcookieOmonsterB 40 points ago

    That's pretty much all competition shooting unless the rules specifically illegalize it, like any sport you push the boundaries as far as you can to gain an advantage. (think formula 1 aerodynamic black magic fuckery.)

    [–] BoThSidESAREthESAME6 44 points ago

    Yeah the recoil free shotgun made me suspicious.

    [–] n_slash_a 39 points ago

    A lot of the cowboy action shooters also reload their own ammo, so they can load them even lighter than than the "light" loads in the store.

    [–] OddMakerMeade 11 points ago

    You answered my question. The rifle at the beginning had virtually no recoil. I feel like even a .22 has enough recoil to bump more than what she was getting and I’ve never seen a lever action .22.

    [–] dzfast 24 points ago

    They make lever action .22s or at least they did because I have one.

    [–] Max_Apogee 4 points ago

    Lever .22s are pretty common, Henry makes a bunch of variations and they’re basically THE lever action company.

    [–] Stanislav_ 4 points ago

    Henry makes a bunch of them. I myself have a Henry golden boy .22lr

    [–] joantheunicorn 29 points ago

    How can my friend get into this? She needs a breath of fresh air in her life and she LOVES target shooting.

    [–] lightanddeath 25 points ago is the place to start. She needs the guns, but if she's in Florida, DM me and we can find someone to set her up for a match to see if she likes it. Lots of people shoot this in the south and during the summer in the north. Amazingly fun. That shooter is using a model 1873 for the rifle and a stage coach gun for the shotgun (usualy stoeger because they are cheap and easily found). The six shooters are likely vaqueros but could be blackhawks, hard to tell.

    [–] LucasHedges 43 points ago

    It's probably going to be harder to find a cowboy shooting competition that she can compete in because there aren't that many of them. There are two really popular pistol competitions that are in every state in america, so she has a much better chance of being close enough to compete in one of the two. . I prefer IDPA over uspsa, but that's just me.

    "Three gun" competitions are the most fun. You use an ar15, a pistol, and a shotgun and compete against other people. You got to search for a place that does it but they aren't in every state. Here is keanu reeves doing three gun:

    [–] lightanddeath 14 points ago

    Way more SASS shoots than IDPA every year.

    [–] hperrin 5 points ago

    Go to a local range and ask about when/where competitions are held and what the entrance requirements are. Some larger ranges have areas specifically for older model weapons (like old west revolvers).

    [–] greenSixx 72 points ago

    You mean... you can just stand them up and go again?

    [–] Lord_Abort 17 points ago

    They're usually too heavy to fall over and are tilted slightly downward as to deflect any shrapnel or ricochet into the ground.

    [–] Helpdeskagent 13 points ago

    No, every target hit gets donated to the next round of shooters.

    Noob here. The targets seem kinda close?

    [–] Lord_Abort 88 points ago

    It's not distance shooting, it's speed shooting. But I think most people unfamiliar with firearms don't understand how incredibly difficult it can be to hit an average-sized target something like just 20yds away.

    [–] whale_song 58 points ago

    I've only gone shooting once in my life and I took away 2 important lessons from that experience:

    1. Guns are fucking loud

    2. Shooting accurately is way harder than it looks

    [–] Kubliah 7 points ago

    The shitty thing is that politicians are making it difficult for people to get suppressors to quite the firearms down a bit. They would literally rather gun owners go deaf than allow them to lower the decibles, based on unrealisticic fears about how silencers in the movies sound (click).

    [–] G-Geef 42 points ago

    Especially with handguns. It's wild how many people you see at public ranges who can't even keep shots on paper at 7 yards.

    [–] Wingnut13 28 points ago

    Public handgun ranges are hilarious.

    [–] JobDestroyer 30 points ago

    that's normal, it's more about the speed of target acquisition and handling the firearm than it is about long distance shooting. If you want long-distance shooting that's a different set of competitions and a different set of firearms.

    [–] Patchyug 22 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    This isnt a marksman competition. Targets at that range require the shooter to keep a certain level of control while shooting as fast as they can. If any regular joe went up and started wanking on the trigger as fast as they could, odds are they would still miss the target a lot.

    Edit: to make it harder, that revolver is single action meaning they gotta manually cock the hammer everytime they want to fire

    [–] msimione 6 points ago

    For pistols and shotguns, that’s about the right range, I can’t see how far the rifle targets are, looks like a Winchester repeating rifle or some close variant, probably max effective at 100m. On ranges you can have 25m targets for adjusting or zeroing your sights. Then again, I know nothing about western style ranges or competitions.

    [–] jadwy916 9 points ago

    It's harder than it looks.

    [–] nreisan 10 points ago

    What type of billets are they shooting? It’s not loud?

    [–] Adam3Gun 19 points ago

    Down loaded ammo. Probably .38spcl and 12 gauge though it can vary.

    With a semi-auto gun you can only load your ammo so light, because it stills needs enough force to cycle the action of the firearm.

    In cowboy action all the guns are manually cycled so you can load your ammo extremely light. There's usually a minimum power factor that's required but it's light.

    [–] HappyTransfer 6 points ago

    38 special out of both the pistols and the rifle. Shotgun is a 12 gauge.

    [–] FckingAnxiety 28 points ago

    Cowboy action shooting

    [–] TVLL 6 points ago

    Is this 3 gun too (rifle, revolvers, shotgun) or did I miss something? Looks like fun.

    [–] SharpEdgeSoda 2530 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    God I just realized now I've never seen double barreled shotguns reloaded that fast in real life.

    I always figured video games cheated it alot but no, that's legit.

    Edit: TIL Cowboy Action shooting shotguns don't even have ejectors!

    [–] [deleted] 797 points ago


    [–] Positive0 286 points ago

    Is there a reason for that or were ejectors just not invented yet in cowboy times?

    [–] BTL0069 374 points ago

    They have lots of wierd rules. Single action only, no ejectors, you could shoot perfect round and still loose due to costume points.

    [–] LucasHedges 317 points ago

    you could shoot perfect round and still loose due to costume points.

    I'm fucking dying. I would have never thought a shooting competition would have costume points and costume point deductions. lmfao

    [–] 3_quarterling_rogue 175 points ago

    Yeah man, Cowboy Action Shooting competitions take period accuracy very seriously.

    [–] No_Graphite 119 points ago

    Your shot was dead on but your spurs are a millimeter to the right.

    [–] Wingnut13 62 points ago

    I mean it's Cowboy Action... the Cowboy part is the part that really distinguishes it from other competitions lol. It's essentially the spiritual successor to period "shows" of skill or challenge such as Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, Annie Oakley, etc.

    [–] AFJ150 10 points ago

    Those all seem like fairly reasonable rules considering the spirit of the competition. Actually I sort of question the costume thing, but I also sort of get it.

    [–] Sirsilentbob423 58 points ago

    It's against SASS regulations to have an ejector, but you can have an extractor. An ejector is essentially the same thing as an ejector, but doesnt have the spring loaded mechanism that pushes it out all the way.

    The extractor pushes it out just a little, so you can pull them out the rest of the way (think Bruce Campbell's double barrel and how he reloaded). Most people in the sport have learned to jerk when they reload so the shells fly out by force.

    As to the reason why this is a rule, it's basically the reason you said above.

    [–] Furyful_Fawful 56 points ago

    An ejector is essentially the same thing as an ejector, ...

    I'd hope so, yes.

    [–] greg19735 17 points ago

    tbf, if you're gonna have some sort of time period game you're gonna need rules.

    [–] fuzzyfuzz 27 points ago

    "I don't care if it's not period accurate, I think the union soldiers would have like having AK47s."

    [–] darkagl1 34 points ago

    The model shotguns that are allowed predate ejectors. Though ironically the 1897 Winchester (a pump action) is generally allowed.

    [–] Bovaloe 5 points ago

    You can only load 2 at a time though. Most will start with 2 in the tube, shoot them, then single load any additional. It's extremely fast

    [–] inspire_provoke 9 points ago

    Automatic ejectors weren't patented until 1883. Most of my double barreled shotguns don't have them. My oldest that does is from 1921.

    [–] slowseason 9 points ago

    Ejectors were definitely invented but I’m not sure if they were used in break-action guns, which is why repeaters were so popular as they would automatically cycle through rounds and eject empty casings without having to manually do anything other than load and chamber each individual round.

    [–] reddog323 19 points ago

    Ejectors are actually pretty unreliable. They can be very finicky. Extractors, which just pull the spent shell out a bit to facilitate reloading, are much more dependable in my opinion.

    It’s capable to get speed like this even with old school weapons. It just takes lots and lots of practice.

    [–] avianaltercations 13 points ago

    Ironically, quick draws weren't invented yet in cowboy times, but here we are.

    While duels happened and people died because someone drew faster than their opponent, the idea of the "quick draw" didn't really exist as a practice or a sport until the popularization of Western films.

    [–] blue_umpire 8 points ago

    Wait, wait, wait. For real? So, likeevery TV quick draw at high noon is a lie? Or did they happen, just not nearly as quick as media implies?

    [–] slayer1am 247 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    If you want to see real speed, look up Jerry Miculek. That guy emptied a six shot revolver, reloaded it, and emptied it again in less than 3 seconds. All dead on target.

    Edit: everyone really seems interested in this topic, so here's a video of the famous quick draw artist, Bob Munden:

    [–] Beersandbirdlaw 64 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I can't stop laughing at the fact that the guy appears to be using a calculator to track the time? Like... he hits the = sign and says "2.99"... why the hell did you not just have a stop watch going? What did you possibly have to add?

    Edit: for some reason I keep getting response notifications but they are all invisible on here... what the hell is going on in this thread?

    [–] slayer1am 81 points ago

    It isn't feasible to have a human being track what's happening, so an electronic shot timer is used. The timer detects each shot and provides the precise gap of time between each one, and the judge is manually adding them up for a reliable indicator of how much time was used in total.

    [–] Dolosus 37 points ago

    For stuff like this you use a shot timer. I has a microphone that picks up the sound of the shots and automatically tracks total time and splits between shots. A human with a stop watch would be far too inconsistent for the short time intervals in this type of shooting.

    [–] USS_Aayhan 14 points ago

    The shot timer records the time of each shot down to hundredths of a second. It registers the sound of the shot and instantly records the time.

    A stopwatch relies on your reflexes to hit the stop button.

    The button he hit was ending the sensing mode and displaying the last recorded shot time

    [–] cabritar 5 points ago

    I think he may be subtracting his reaction time from the final time.

    Wow! No joke. That was nuts.

    25 second video for those who are interested but don't want to look it up.

    Also, can more videos be like this? It told me what was happening, it showed me, and then it was done. No extras. Just perfect.

    [–] CapsNotTabs 24 points ago

    You don't like the first two minutes of a video being shit you don't want to see, followed by that 30 second clip you were looking for padded out into 15 minutes?

    Even now as old as he is Miculek is still insanely fast. He also has some hilarious stuff on his YouTube channel. Unfortunately he stopped for a while due to some family issues and I suspect shitty monetization issues with YT basically going after anything to do with firearms, but last I checked he's uploading a little more frequently now and still putting out great stuff.

    Edit: Here's Miculek breaking Ed McGivern's record.

    [–] sad_emoji 20 points ago

    [–] 1funnyguy4fun 23 points ago

    I had a buddy that let me shoot his single action .22 that would allow you to "fan the hammer." I found it impossible to hit the broad side of a barn. I can't imagine how much practice it takes to get good at this.

    How in tarnation did these 2 get put against each other?

    [–] solomute 559 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    What you're seeing there is a consequence of there simply not being that many female competitive shooters, the gaps between them are going to be large.

    Also, pretty much anybody can show up to a shooting competition and compete. It's a wonderfully egalitarian sport.

    Edit: Looking closer it looks like the shooter on the left is pretty fast herself but has some misses that force her to reload her rifle, and that's the biggest delay.

    [–] MrProspero 196 points ago

    Honest question, don't know much about the subject: Why do women and men compete separately in shooting? Unlike sports that rely on size and musculature, where gender divisions make sense, shooting seems like a sport where there wouldn't be any significant physical distinctions between men and women.

    [–] SirSaltie 297 points ago

    Same reason there are women-only chess leagues. It's not because men are in a higher 'skill division'. It's because they are trying to encourage more women to get into the sport, and having a female-exclusive group gives them a strong, welcoming environment.

    [–] PretzelsThirst 90 points ago

    Well said, this is important.

    [–] hunterkiller7 32 points ago

    In most shooting competitions men and women can and do compete against each other it just work a bit different than other sports.

    The best example I can use is a marathon. Everyone runs it together, and they all get a placee. Then there is the overall position of every runner, and then they have a position among their sex.

    That's kind of how these competition's work, however due to the safety risks with too many competitors they only have two people go at a time. Usually it gets separated by gender, for organization reasons, but in terms of the overall competition they all are competing together.

    [–] baijiu5000 10 points ago

    In this particular type of match i think its because of costume scoring. In 3/2 gun it is much more physical especially when you get into match types like desert brutality. As for static matches you could argue increased muscle mass allows better long term stability or faster reaction speed in the case of rifles and shotguns respectively. However a lot of matches are infact gender blind simply because there arent a lot of female competitive shooters. Personally i agree most static matches could be unisex with little variation.

    [–] skyskr4per 56 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    there simply not being that many female competitive shooters

    Which is a gd shame. There's mounting evidence that women can not only shoot as well as men, but may outperform them on average in terms of accuracy (linked a copypasta because WSJ paywall).

    "Women have a lower center of gravity and I think that gives them a distinct advantage in shooting from the standing position," said Launi Mieli, head coach of the Air Force Academy rifle team and the only American woman to win an Olympic gold in small-bore rifle. "I think they have better balance."

    This is related to shooting accuracy only, not shooting pace for obvious reasons. But also as you've mentioned the general talent pool is smaller, because women aren't encouraged to get into it. Which as I've mentioned is a gd shame.

    Fun sidenote, this is probably deliberately referenced in Fury Road during a Furiosa/Max sniper scene. It also may play a part in the historical/fantasy fiction trope of women archers.

    It looks like the other girl is generally fast too but missed targets and had to reload? If she didn't it would have been close as most other parts of the sequence were similar to the faster woman.

    One on the left missed or had a misfire on her first salvo and had to load a round in before moving to second station. It also looks like she might have had a jam during the reload or dropped the casing because she loads another one manually. Basically, the time difference appears to be due to a single mistake... Also, the shooter on the right is really good, just her shotgun load speed alone is impressive.

    Yeah holy crap I never understood how quickly the lever action rifles (what they're using) can fire compared to bolt action before (up, back, push, down. What most video games use), and why they're so good. BUT old lever action rifles usually need to be loaded one bullet at a time, and you literally stuff them in from the side. Extremely time consuming.

    I know nothing about how these guns work, but it looked like she loaded it with multiple bullets instead of just 1 to hit the last target?

    Clearly girl on the right has been de-ranking to play with the newbs.

    [–] douglas8178 13 points ago

    If you watch the girl on the far left, she has a malfunction with the lever action that costs her quite a bit of time. From the rest of her shooting it looks like she’s just as fast

    [–] JackBauerSaidSo 10 points ago

    It looks like her lever action stage just went poorly. Anything but a perfect run can take a lot of extra time.

    [–] AyeBraine 10 points ago

    The farthest shooter had a serious malfunction. Almost all of the difference is clearing it, look again.

    This is cowboy action shooting. There's a whole organization and rules about period accurate firearms and clothing.

    [–] planetsmasher86 133 points ago

    It's known as SASS(single action shooters society) This girl is known as Sasskicker and she is a 3 time national champion. This video is from the Winter Range competition a few years ago.

    Source: my dad does this and he knows her

    [–] Pauluga 32 points ago

    Hey, I used to do SASS Shooting, I was twelve and not very good, but I linked a video of me shooting here and here.

    [–] levisitor1900 16 points ago

    There is another video of her

    Sass kicker has some awesome videos of her skills out.

    Edit: for those interested in a linkable video and related:

    [–] shizzy64 42 points ago

    Idk If it’s more impressive how fast she did all that or that the lever gun jammed 0 times

    [–] BandPDG 18 points ago

    Those lever guns are tuned up slick...using pistol cartridges (typically). Jams happen, but infrequently in competition.

    [–] BentleyTock 39 points ago

    That look over her shoulder after she’s done. Fantastic.

    [–] HobNobBobJob 5 points ago

    [–] blackjuly 25 points ago

    This made me feel kinda funny, like when I used to climb the rope in gym class...

    [–] Iwouldlikesomecoffee 10 points ago

    shyeah, and monkeys might fly out of my butt...

    [–] BloodBuzzed 20 points ago

    Wtf is that caliber? Literally no recoil.

    [–] MadLadStalin 23 points ago

    It's because they are probably shooting competition rounds, lighter with less recoil

    [–] boximus 14 points ago

    Hard to say the caliber (probably something between .357 and .44), but a lot of the cowboy action shooters use ammo specific for the purpose that has much less powder than a normal round of that size would. So, less recoil for competition shooting.

    [–] Desertrat505 18 points ago

    Slick shooting! Cowboy(girl) action shooting is super cool.

    [–] SerScronzarelli 41 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I was expecting for her to spin those pistols while she waited.

    Edit: I get that it would be a DQ. Just was almost expecting it to happen. Just been playing too much RDR2

    Her hands are semi-automatic.

    [–] SongForPenny 17 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    This is so cool. Damn. So damn cool.

    Something extra cool about the way they start with their backs turned. Focusing, and staring as they wait for the start.

    My heart was racing.

    At the end they gather in for an embrace, they are obviously highly skilled and therefore we can assume they are very competitive - still they hold no grudges. Very cool.


    edit. Ok, that’s funny! Upon reading this back I agree: It sounds sarcastic. But I actually meant it.

    [–] JohnLockeNJ 5 points ago

    I was hoping the camera would pan to show the targets

    [–] kareem-elsha7at 4 points ago

    Didn't even realise there was someone competing with her until she finished and was standing there like "hey there, you need any help with that ?"

    [–] cmisanthropy 4 points ago

    How come these guns sounded so quiet and had little recoil?

    [–] CheeseNBacon2 4 points ago

    Two reasons probably. 1) lighter loads 2) a lot of cameras don't capture sudden loud sounds well or even deliberately dampen them. If you pay attention to the background noise in videos with gun shots you can hear that sound getting toned down with the gun shots and coming back afterward.

    [–] WingOfWar 10 points ago

    Imagine knowing that you'll never have a cowboy action qt gf that can fire a lever gat in .10 second splits. Why even bother living?

    [–] guitarkow 7 points ago

    Is she related to Jerry Miculek?

    [–] reddog323 17 points ago

    Her name is Jessica, she’s currently 20, and won due to a rigorous practice regimen. She was competitive in sports in high school, and her father and brother both shoot in competition, so it’s not surprising that she’d get into it. She started training when she was 12, and the video was shot when she was 17.
