What is Action Pistol?
Action Pistol matches consists of drawing from the holster and rapidly shooting at various targets (cardboard, reactive steel and bowling pins). Each match has six to eight stages, and each stage may have one to thirty targets. The stage designs change each month. The sport involves thinking, as well as the rapid and accurate placement of shots, in order to overcome the challenge offered by each stage.

When do the matches take place?
Action Pistol events take place the second Saturday of each month beginning at about 8:45 AM and lasting until approximately 2:30 PM - rain, snow, or shine!

Equipment You'll Need:
A working handgun, .38 caliber/9 millimeter or larger
A holster that covers the trigger (no shoulder holsters, please) 

At least 3 speed loaders for revolvers or 3 magazines for pistols. 
A baseball-type hat is recommended. 
About 150 rounds of ammo should be enough to comfortably finish any match. 
Safety glasses and ear protection are mandatory for all participants and spectators.
