The Alaska 49ers is a group of individuals that enjoy the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS), the fastest growing segment of the shooting world. CAS is a sport the entire family can participate in, with the Buckeroo/Buckerette category entry age of twelve years old. We are affiliated with a parent organization, the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS), which governs our sport.

Our Goal is to recreate the "Spirit of the Old West", a time period spanning 1849 through 1899, in shooting scenarios. We do this by developing a character (an "alias"), dressing in appropriate attire for that alias, and using firearms made or designed prior to 1900. The SASS Shooters handbook explains in great detail which firearms are legal to use.
