ASA Marksmanship Program

Airgunners can download a printable ASA Target and submit a photo of their successful shot group.  A shot group of 5 shots within the red 2 inch circle at 75 yards will earn airgunners the credential of ASA Marksman and the use of the ASA Marksman logo on their social media channels, website, email signature, or other printed material.

The purpose of the 2 inch group at 75 yards emphasizes the ASA’s focus on marksmanship and the association’s recommended yardage guidelines for ethical shooting practices targeting large game animals.

The 2 inch group requirement will hone airgunners’ skills to target a game animal’s vital zone. Furthermore, taking shots within a 75 yard range maximizes the foot pounds of energy of the projectiles thus increasing the probability of a successful harvest of that game animal. Marksman who have successfully completed this challenge will also be included for the quarterly prize drawings as part of the ASA Successful Hunter and Marksmanship Program.

ASA Marksmanship Shooting Attempt Guidelines:
Download the printable ASA Marksmanship target and print on a standard 8.5 x11 sheet of paper. When attempting your shots for record, make sure you are shooting at a designated shooting range or safe area with proper backstop and follow all other safe shooting practices. We will use the honor system for this challenge.

Mark off a 75 yard shot distance from your shooting position to your target.  Using a proper backstop attach your target and move to your shooting position.  You can attempt the shots in any shooting position you desire.  In order for this to be considered a successful attempt all 5 shots need to be inside or touching the outer edge of the red 2 inch circle. No other holes from additional shots can be on the sheet of paper. Submit your photo with your full name, what state you live in, the date, airgun and ammo used.

Use the form below to submit your name, email, details of your shot group to include the airgun used, ammo selection, the State where you live, attach a photo of your 5 shot group showing the entire target (no other shots can be on the paper), and any other details you’d like to include.
