What is Action Pistol Shooting?

The Action Pistol shooting events at Izaak Walton are low key events where people come to work on their Action Pistol skills. Our primary rule is safety and we design our events to promote fun, learning, practice, camaraderie and above all else, safety. We welcome all and provide training, instruction, and coaching to all levels of shooters. So come and join us no matter your experience level in Action Shooting.

Our Events

Introduction to Action Shooting:

Have you ever wanted to do more than just practice shooting at a static paper target? Have you heard about our events but don't know how to get started? This is the opportunity for you! This event allows you to learn and practice the basics that you need to be safe when shooting down range at one of our events. At this event you draw from a holster, shoot on the move, practice reloading from a magazine pouch, turn and shoot, and so much more. The goal is to get you familiar with the skills you need so you can feel confident and safe at one of our other Action Pistol events.

* April 28, 2018 at 9:30 AM. Contact Joe at JoeKincaid@earthlink.net to register.

* Contact Jeff at JNWJNW1992@gmail.com to set up an alternate day and time.

Action Pistol Practice:

We have several Action Pistol Practice days throughout the year. This is a time to hone your skills or learn something new. Many people go to the range and only practice shooting at a paper target. At this event you can take it to the next level by drawing from a holster, shooting moving targets, steel targets, shooting on the move, and so much more!

Contact Tony at tony.l.unroe70@gmail.com to register.

* Morning Practices (10 am to 1 pm): Third Wednesday of every month

* Evening Practices (5pm to 7pm): Thursdays on: May 10th; June 14th; July 12th; August 9th; September 13th

Action Pistol Matches:

If you like to 'Run, Gun, and have Fun' then our Action Pistol matches are for you! What makes our matches great is they are geared towards shooters of all levels! At our match, we set up a few scenarios that contain doors, windows, walls, and moving targets and let you shoot them while focusing on speed and ACCURACY! These scenarios are similar to events that you would find at an IDPA, USPSA, or a Steel Challenge match.
