AGI Presents New DVD on Cowboy Action Shooting

By September 6, 20112 Comments

Cowboy Action Shooting has become one of the most popular and fastest growing shooting games in the World. Now, the American Gunsmithing Institute has a new DVD release on Cowboy Action Shooting, featuring Two Time World Champion Lefty Longridge (aka Joe Alesia, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy, Tactical Instructor and Training Supervisor).  This SASS and Cowboy 3-Gun World Champion will take the viewer through a basic training course of Cowboy Action Shooting.

“This is a fantasy sport,” commented Longridge. “For those of us who grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons, followed by the adventures of Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill Hickok, Roy Rodgers, Gene Autry, Wagon Train, Gunsmoke and Rawhide in the evenings, this is like having died and gone to Cowboy Heaven.”

Longridge continues, “You not only get to choose an Old West name and dress up like your favorite cowboy hero, but you get to shoot their cowboy guns in a family friendly competition! It just doesn’t get much better than that and still be legal.”

In this DVD, Longridge takes his time to go into serious detail about the history, clothes, equipment and match action in Cowboy Action Shooting. The viewer will get a champion’s (and highly sought after trainer’s) tips on selecting guns and leather, as well as the actual shooting. Learn proper stance, sighting, grip, trigger control and target engagement. The viewer will also learn how to overcome the most common impediments to competitive scoring.

Besides covering the basics of shooting the handguns, rifles and shotguns of the sport, Longridge even teaches the proper methods of combat loading the ubiquitous model 97 Winchester pump shotgun.

This video is a valuable addition to any person who is interested in getting started in Cowboy Action Shooting. It’s full of history and visual demonstrations; the viewer will learn something new about Cowboy Action Shooting each time he views it. The AGI Cowboy Action Shooting DVD is available at for only $49.95 (Product ID# 216DVD).
