Cody/Dixon Lite Rules
All SASS legal revolvers and shotguns are accepted, and any SASS legal shooting style may be used.
Rifle is shot with either:— Single-shot rifle in a SASS Main Match caliber. — Any Main Match rifle, loaded on-the-clock, one round at a time. — Stated differently, the rifle may never contain more than one live round.
Two categories exist: 1. Traditional: Single-shot rifles with an exposed, manually activated hammer, and extractors only. 2. Modern: Single-shot rifles with ejectors and/or self-cocking hammer, and Main Match rifles operated as described above.
Rifle target distances and/or sizes should be selected to provide a more challenging rifle portion of the stage to the shooter.
Each stage will require a total of six rounds to be fired.
Ammunition for all rifles may be loaded from any of three places. 1. A cartridge belt, made of period correct material, that is worn around the waist of the shooter. 2. An over the shoulder bandoleer, made of period correct material, and the lower end is in no way, shape, form or fashion secured to the shooter or their clothing. 3. The ammunition may be staged at the Rifle position of the Stage. Single Shot Rifles may not be staged with a round already in the chamber. All rounds must be loaded on the clock. The Cody/Dixon Lite category and its rules were inspired by and adapted from those developed for the Cody/Dixon category by the Texas Historical Shootist Society.
