ASSA offers to all members the opportunity to participate in a monthly National competition to determine who are
the top SlugShooters in the Country. Participation is limited to active members of NSSA who can present an official target
to this organization which has been verified to have been fired upon with the results offered to us upon its return to ASSA.
Targets and firing results must be verified by the manager or Rangemaster of an established Gun Club or commercial target
range usually used by the contestant.
Members may submit as many targets per month as they want, so long as all are officially designated and numbered ASSA
targets. In case of multiple target submissions from one contestant to a single monthly contest, the best grouping will be
the only one entered in the competition for ranking. Members who wish to enter more than one monthly competition at once may
order extra targets and submit for several months' contests all at one time, so long as we are notified that each target is
for a different competition.
Once we have completed 12 competitions there will be a determinaton of the best overall SlugShooters for the year. In
order to qualify as the best Slugshooter of the year, a contestant will have to participate in the same division and class
in each of the twelve monthly contests. Given the nature of our sport, it would not be acceptable to award the best Slugshooter
of the year to someone who only competed in a single contest. Most members would likely see that as a "lucky shot". Competitors
who miss a monthly competition for some reason (My dog ate my target, etc.) Can submit a makeup target for whatever month(s)
competition they missed, in order to maintain eligibility for the Best Slugshooter of the Year title. Monthly competition
targets submitted late will not qualify for the monthly awards, and the standings amongst competitors will not be recalculated
to include late submission target results. Those late target submissions will only affect year end competiton standings. Each
month, the overall "Top Gun" winner in each Division and category will be awarded a free target for the following
There are Four Primary Divisions, and contestants will compete within their divisions to establish Division Champion.
Division Champions may then choose to have another contest to determine best overall SlugShooter. The Four Division titles
are Hunter, Professional, Metallic Sight, and Optical Sight. The Professional Division will include any and all
competitors who are: Gunsmiths, or employees of Ammunition or Firearms manufacturers whose occupation would give them an advantage
over "civilians". Active duty Military and Law Enforcement are invited to participate in whatever division they feel most
closely reflects their level of training or ability, so long as they specify their active duty status. ASSA policy is that
we do not argue these details with ladies and gentlemen who carry and use firearms full time. Metallic Sight Division
includes open, peepsight, and any laser, holograph, dot, or other optics that have no magnification function. Scope Sights
are of course any optical sighting systems that do have a magnification function.
Club Matches and Other Competitions:
We recognize the competitive spirit amongst SlugShooters and hope to encourage its continued growth and health. In case
of gun clubs, Armed Services, Law Enforcement Agencies, or other groups or individuals wishing to have private competitions
amongst themselves or against similar groups nationwide, ASSA will arrange and administer any such private competitons that
may be requested. Now shooting team members of national Corporations, local and state police SWAT teams, or just SlugShooters
wanting to compete against their buddies in other states but not Everybody, can have their own "Club" events with ASSA
providing the targets and judging, and eliminating all that travel time and expense. We'll also publish your Club results
on this website if you like, or keep it amongst ourselves if you prefer.

Classes of Competition:
All classes will compete at 50 yards with Metallic, or 100 yards with Optical Sighting systems. Competition
targets must have 5 shot groups to be qualified for judging. In case of multiple rounds going through a single hole in the
target, the club or shooting range Rangemaster must verify all five rounds did actually go through the target. Winning
target will be based upon the standard ring method of measuring extreme spread. Within the Four Primary Divisions, the Classes
of weapons are as below:
12 Gauge RB (Rifled Barrel)
12 Gauge RCT (Rifled Choke Tube)
12 Gauge SB (Smooth Bore)
16 Gauge RB
20 Gauge RB
20 Gauge RCT
20 Gauge SB
.410 Gauge SB
Targets: Each target issued will have a serial number and official ASSA embedded markings to assure
traceability of each target to its SlugShooter.
Target Information Required: To be accepted for judging in the monthly competition, targets must
have written in the proper locations and signed by the Rangemaster: Serial Number, Brand and Type Ammunition Used, Brand and
Model number of Firearm Used, Brand and model number of each accessory used, ie Scope/other sighting system, barrel, choke
tube, compensator, recoil devices, etc.
Range Location Address and Telephone Number, with Signature of the Rangemaster and Date target was fired.
Since ranking is solely determined by extreme spread of a five shot group, the Ammunition used must be accurately reported
for correct scoring to be possible. Slugs from different manufacturers vary widely as to the slug diameter, which we have
to deduct from our measurements to determine actual group spread.
