ASI Shooting Match 10/5 6:15 pm
October 5, 2018 @ 6:15 pm - 9:00 pm$35
Hendershot’s is very excited to be hosting Action Shooting International Matches(ASI) October 19th at our indoor range. Registration starts at 6:15 pm, with the match beginning at 7. Also, holster safety orientation will begin approximately 30 minutes before the match.
ASI shooting matches are focused on giving you a chance to practice in a way that’s fun, and builds social connections with other gun owners. These matches consist of a series of simple courses oriented on the practical use of handguns — along with a scoring system that promotes a relaxed, friendly attitude. ASI matches are competitions, but focus on having fun and learning something along the way…as opposed to fighting for every point.
Each stage focuses on a particular experience or skill — such as reloading, shooting around an obstacle, or shooting while moving.
The challenges you face will be “doable” for average gun owners, and are particularly suited to people who are learning new skills liking drawing from concealment, using barricades, etc. The stages will repeat over the course of the year, giving you a chance to track your improvement.
ASI matches are a great way for new handgun owners and concealed carry permit holders to have fun while strengthening and developing new skills. ASI provides an opportunity for pistol owners to shoot under the direction of highly experienced Range Safety Officers in a new and fun way. Participants will have a chance to shoot two “stages of fire” and are scored based on elapsed time and accuracy.
While experienced competitors are welcome, ASI matches are not designed for them. These matches cater to shooters with limited to no experience in Action Shooting. The goal is to provide a safe, fun, and non-intimidating event for shooters of all skill levels.
ASI provides an opportunity for new shooters to get a more-relaxed glimpse into what the action shooting sports and/or the “gun schools” teach – but without the high intensity. You don’t need to be an athlete to shoot ASI events – just be safe and have fun! The cost is $35.
What Gear Do I Need?
You’ll need a safe handgun and two magazines or speed loaders. You’ll also need a case of some sort to carry the gun in when you’re not shooting. You can bring your own but ammo will also be available for purchase.
How About Holsters?
Holsters are optional. Shooters who’ve been cleared to use a holster by our RSOs can start with a loaded gun in the holster, but most shooters start each stage with their pistol on a table, on the ground, or other position specified in the stage briefing. Hendershot’s will offer holster safety orientation starting 30 minutes before each match.
Come join us! We’re having a great time!
