• New Shooter Safety Information

    Cross Timbers Action Shooting Association holds a new shooter briefing 30 minutes before each regular local match. We require any shooter that does not have an IDPA or USPSA classification and has never shot with us before to attend this briefing. To help with club resources we will limit this to 5 new shooters at any given match. You must register with the Chief Safety Officer by either emailing or calling to RSVP for the match that you plan on attending. For more information about the new shooter classes, and for registration, please contact our Chief Safety Officer, Ray P at SafetyOfficer@ctidpa.com

    NOTICE to ALL potential match participants, you must know and understand the following:


    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target.

    So, what you are saying is that you would tag the shooter with an FTDR for violating a rule that does not exist, because the shooter took an action that

    Why would that be a DQ situation? If your shots are going in a safe direction, where's the danger? Maybe use that new flagrant procedural if we're worried

    The soft cover that you can shoot through is something like t-shirts. You can still SEE the targets. My opinion is that if you can't see the target you
