Official Wild Bunch Rules (Shooters Handbook)

 

Wild Bunch is an action shooting sport based on the Wild Bunch movie set in the dying days of the old west.  The approved guns for official Wild Bunch categories are based on the firearms seen in the movie.   Wild Bunch is governed by SASS just like Cowboy Action Shooting.

* Renegade Category

Our Renegade category is intended to allow easy entry into Wild Bunch shooting by using your existing lever action rifles, CAS shotguns and even smaller 1911's.   The true core of Wild Bunch is higher power factor and pump-action shotguns so we encourage everyone to explore Wild Bunch with our Renegade category but our official weekly winners will be from the Official WB categories.
