Mounted Shooters of America is a national organization dedicated to holding the finest, most exciting mounted shooting competitions in the US and beyond. This exciting competition reminds spectators of cowboys of the old west! Armed with two single action .45 caliber pistols, the competitor speeds through a course designed to test their horsemanship skills and shooting ability – all put together. While navigating through a course, the rider must shoot at 5 targets with one gun before re-holstering and pulling out their next gun for the last 5 targets. Scoring is based on speed, accuracy and following the course of fire correctly. Targets are balloons and ammunition is black powder blanks for safety. There are levels for competitors based on mounted shooting experience and wins.
From Thursday, February 23rd – Saturday, February 25th, MSA competitors will face off in pistol, rifle and shotgun competitions. All levels are invited to compete, including Rookie, Non-Pro, Semi-Pro and Pro level competitors. The Patriot Mounted Shooting is a multiple World Qualifying point competition, pulling in the best competitors from all across the country and Canada.
Founded in 2001, MSA is dedicated to earning a reputation of integrity, fairness and continuing excitement generated by innovating and pioneering within the sport of mounted shooting.
