South Island Action Shooters
SIAS host an average of six to ten club matches per shooting season, and two to three Independent Shooting League (ISL) matches. Matches are typically held on a Sunday of every month from March to September. If you are a new shooter, our club has a set of introductory courses that can ease you into the Action Shooting Sports; we start you out with our ‘Handgun essentials course, then our ‘Holster’ Course, and then our ‘SIAS Safety’ Course. These ‘stepped’ set of courses will give you the confidence to try Action Shooting, and encourage you to take the final step, which is an IPSC ‘Black Badge’ course.
There is always someone to talk to for support or information as members vary in age and skill. We have a couple of Training Instructors on the Island that can provide you with a two-day Black Badge course: successful completion of this course will supply you with an IPSC-BC membership for the year that you complete the course, which allows you to shoot all sanctioned IPSC-BC matches. Learn how to use your handgun safely and in a recreational atmosphere that will bring you together with others who enjoy the sportsmanship found in handgun ownership, action shooting, and IPSC Competition.
Safety is Paramount
Through the 2 days Black Badge course, you will learn how to:
- Draw a handgun from a holster
- Shoot it with two hands, right hand, and left hand
- Speed reload
- Move and reload
- Shoot around barricades
- Shoot both kneeling and prone
- Move and shoot
- Shoot moving targets
- Shoot reactive steel target
Contact Jerry Wong for more information on taking your Black Badge course and upcoming course dates.
Practice Sessions and Matches are held throughout the year, at the Multipurpose/Pistol Range from 9am – 4pm, with stages setup being on the previous day. Come on out and see what it’s all about.
If you are not familiar with this particular shooting sport, you are really missing some fun. Action Shooting tests the skill and mindset of young and old, experienced and new shooters alike.
