Greetings from Action Shooting International®

The pandemic had a considerable impact on operations at ASI’s headquarters.  Meanwhile, ASI® continued to grow exponentially!   We have added several new clubs and experienced enthusiastic participation in some of our most popular specialty events: including the 2022 5th Hand-size Handgun Championship, with 93 participants. Plans are in process for the 2023 match. We also had a very entertaining 2022 ASI Senior Classic –  with 80 participants and our first ASI Single Stack Match.   ASI was featured in multiple media articles for these events.   ASI now has over 1,200 registered members, and new ranges/clubs are coming on board every month in the Pacific Northwest, East Coast and Texas.

Our goal of creating a “Move and Shoot,” non-competitive sport for those wanting to learn safety, improve firearm handling skills, and Have Fun – has exceeded our expectations. 

Please excuse our very outdated “Version 1” website.   We contracted with a web development agency, and a very feature-rich “Version 2” ASI website should be available shortly.   The existing website will be active with accurate and updated legacy materials while the new website is being created.    

Thank you to everyone who has supported ASI’s introduction to the shooting sports.  We hope to join you out on the range!      Sandy Wylie, Robin Taylor, and T. Ron Davis (ASI Founders)

A Medal to the Winner!

Paul Bunyan Rifle and Sportsman’s Club has been the home range for our local Action Shooting International since 2019. Offering a “Shoot and Move Sport for Everyone” inviting both new and experienced shooters to this shooting sport. Since arriving, our chapter has developed a loyal following and welcomed new enthusiasts.

Recognizing the increase in popularity we figured it was time to host a ‘specialty match’; a match with 7 new stages with fun target arrays and props. The 2021 The Senior Classic was held on October 2, it was opened to all, but special recognition was awarded to those registered in the senior category of 50 years and older.

More than 100 shooters flocked to Renton Fish & Game Club in Renton, Wash. to shoot the Hand Sized Handgun Championship. They came to celebrate the 2021 season — and find out who is the “top gun” for the year.

Sunny weather, open air shooting, and a colorful cast of characters (including all the ASI leadership) offered a great way to socialize and shoot. 

While the HSH is dedicated to the use of the “Hand-Sized” pistol (3.5″ or less barrel), a great many people brought their full-size guns just to join in the fun.

Marcel Engelmaier emerged as overall champion, shooting a red-dot-equipped SIG 365 to win the “Hand Sized” bragging rights. Mike Vadewall finished fourth overall on his road to winning the “ASI” division (where any ASI-legal gun is allowed).

Vendors Rain City Tactical and Taylor Freelance set up their displays, again giving shooters a chance to meet their owners and see products “hands on” in ways that you just can’t do via Zoom!

We are updating the look and feel of our website during the first week of December. Don’t panic if the website changes while you are using it as updates are going in live.

Will let you know when we are done.

Renton Fish & Game Club is hosting the 2020 match on August 29th.

  • ASI approved stages
  • Emphasis on variety of shooting positions, movement, cover
  • Strong-hand/weak-hand stages
  • Stages including “Running” targets – automated on rails
  • Award Certificates 1st thru 10th Overall +   Top Lady & Top Junior

Our shipment of CE Pocket Pro timers has arrived at last, and we’re catching up with backorders.

If you’ve wanted a timer, the Pocket Pro is among the easiest to use, and most popular. We buy them by the case and sharply discount them as a benefit of membership.

New clubs and range officers need to invest in timers — so ASI makes that as easy and inexpensive as we can.

ASI just changed it’s membership system to a simpler system from Join It. Join It is a small startup company and it’s software seems to be easier to use for members. It’s also cheaper than our current system and doesn’t charge us a high premium for taking credit cards.

Starting October 15th, the new system will be taking care of all your membership needs. If you have any problems, contact [email protected].

Sending membership cards and such today to our South African ASI members in Kwa-Zulu Natal! MOSSC broke the ice and is holding regular matches — and we have several other South African clubs asking about becoming ASI affiliates too!

Hand Sized Handgun 2019 Success! Congrats to everyone that came out for the annual Hand Sized Handgun championship at Renton this past weekend. Great weather, great stages, and some great shooting along the way. Look for stage descriptions from the match to be released into the ASI Stage Library shortly!

New logbooks are out. We put 50+ of the 2019-2020 member logbook in the mail today. Members get a fresh logbook when they renew, or when they join ASI. If you didn’t get one when you joined or renewed — most likely it’s on its way to you now!
