Welcome To The ASSA Website! Please Make Yourself At Home Here!

ASSA is an organization created exclusively for those hunters, target shooters, and professionals who are shotgun slug shooters. Not Riflemen, Not Trapshooters or Sporting Clays Guys, Not Pistoleros, Not PaintBall players. All fine people, of course, but they already have their Clubs, their Events, and their Competitions. (Note to all of You Other Guys: You are 100% Welcome Here, just as long as You Bring Along Your Slug Guns, and Leave All the Other Toys At The Door)

This Association is just for the SlugShooters. 
You know who you are.
We're here just for you.

Everyone "behind the scenes" here has a long term attachment to slug shooting, slug guns, and the challenge of extracting the greatest possible degree of accuracy from both the guns and the shells used in them. We all know its not easy, but we also know we can beat lots of the rifle guys most of the time...

OUR PURPOSE.
 
ASSA is all about SlugShooting. We are advocates of the sport, students of the process, and participants in the competition. Our goal is to bring together everyone who is currently involved with SlugShooting in any way, and by encouraging national contests, to advance the popularity of this unique shooting discipline, and hopefully increase the number of sportsmen who participate all year round

ASSA Mission Statement


With the creation of this site and the organization operating it, we are working toward bringing all the practitioners of this unique shooting discipline into contact with one another. We have seen that in general SlugShooters (That's Us Too) are not found in great numbers in any one geographic area of the country, and indeed may find themselves to be the only ones at their local gun club or shooting range who are really pursuing this sport on a year round basis.
 
Sure, all the members of your club or your hunting buddies take an interest in your sport during the shotguns-only deer season, but the rest of the year you, and we, are generally doing our tests and our practice shooting alone.
 
To address that issue, and to make it possible for you, the SlugShooter, to finally have a broad base of like-minded sportsmen to interact with, to compare notes, and to improve the sport, we have set up this site exclusively for you. Now you can contact SlugShooters from all over the country, see what their experiences have been with the sport, and discover what a variety of people have chosen to become involved with it.   
 
As a member of American Slugshooters Association, ASSA, you can now become a part of a growing group of like-minded individuals whose passion is for the heavy shot with the pinpoint accuracy out to 100 yards and beyond. If you choose to become a Competition Member, you can participate in a monthly contest against members nationwide, to see how you stack up against the best  in the sport.
 
Membership is inexpensive, and competition requires no big travel expense either. As long as there is a shooting range or gun club in your area that can verify your results, you can compete with everyone in the nation who joins in, and we'll publish the results on this site every month, along with the guns and ammo that were used to be the winner. We invite you to join us today. Please go to the Membership pages to learn more about it, and take a peek at the Competition Rules as well. We think you'll want to sign up today!

ASSA Official National Competition Target

This is the ASSA SlugShooters National Competition Target. Looks innocent enough. Just a 50/100yard target, with about an 8" outer ring and a big old TWO INCH diamond center.
 
Now comes the hard part. Once a month, SlugShooters from all over the country will be "TakingTheir Best Shots" at these innocent little bits of paper, and the judges from ASSA will take in all the targets, measure all the shot groups, and announce on this website who the REAL shooters were each month. Want to be among the folks who get the recognition each month? Perhaps wind up the Champion SlugShooter for the year? It all comes back to that innocent looking piece of paper, the one that can only come from here......... Join us, and see how you stack up against the other REAL SLUGSHOOTERS.

Click Photo for Full Article from Your Slug Shooting Library

This is the cover photo from Shotgun Sports Magazine, and shows what can happen when you team a 70 year old professional hunter/guns writer with a fairly expensive custom gun and a "teeny" 20 gage 3 1/2" Hastings Magnum Sabot load. Appears that some of us will be able to park the old reliable 12 gage, and switch to this "Super 20" regardless of the size game we're after. Seems like a possible choice for some of our Southern states members to use on those mean old boar hogs they like so much. Bring on the barbeque sauce, boys!
