ASSA offers to all members and guests the opportunity to participate in an annual
event, a National competition to determine who are the top SlugShooters in the Country. Participation is open to all who
can present an official target to this organization which has been verified to have been issued for this "ASSA
Celebrates the NRA" Invitational Shoot and 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.
Official Targets for this One-Time Only "ASSA Celebrates
the NRA" Invitational Shoot must be requested from April 1, to April 30, each year, and all official
entries must be postmarked no later than June 10, annually in order to be considered as entries in the "ASSA
Celebrates the NRA" annual Summer Invitational Shoot. Judging will be completed and Awards issued to the winners
by July 4th, every year.
Competitors may submit as many targets for the event as they want, so long as all
are officially designated and numbered ASSA targets and issued for this event. In case of multiple target submissions from
one contestant to the contest, the best grouping will be the only one entered in the competition for ranking. Members who
wish to enter the Invitational more than once may order extra targets and submit several targets all at one time, so
long as we are notified that each target is for additional participation in the competition.
Once we have completed the
competition there will be a determinaton of the best overall SlugShooters for the "ASSA Celebrates the NRA"
Invitational Shoot. The overall "Top Gun" winner in each Division and category will be awarded a free
target for a subsequent ASSA National contest, in addition to the "ASSA Celebrates the NRA Invitational
Awards" shown below.

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.
To Arrange Your Own Club Matches and Other Invitational 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 for the "SPONSOR" Invitational Shoot must have 3 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 three 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 three 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.
