NRA Action Shooting


Action shooting is a discipline governed by the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Action shooting involves a combination of accuracy and timing while shooting set stages.

Most commonly shot Action stages at Auckland Pistol Club include "Practical", "Barricade", "Mover" and "Plates".

These events make for fun and reactive targets, as plates are shot to fall and the mover involves a target which is shot while it moves across the range.

Distances vary from 10 yards to 50 yards providing a range of difficulty as the match progresses.

Range 1 is where most Action shooting is done and matches are organised for Sunday afternoons.

Action shooting will appeal to those who enjoy shooting 9mm guns or larger with precision - honing their skills to a set format of stages that don't change.

Competitors shoot from the holster (if holster qualified) but are not required to move around the range during the stage.
