AURRPC | Adelaide University Regiment Rifle & Pistol Club

What is Single Six?

Single Six is a pistol discipline for single-action pistol shooters. The term single action means that the pistol must be cocked after each shot is fired. Single action is common on pre-1914 revolvers.

The name 'Single-Six' was given to the first Ruger revolver (1953-72) and the New Model Super Single-Six (1973-current).

Western Action is also a single action event for the serious shooter. Just check out the Single Action Shooting Society. But you don't have to dress up as a cowboy to shoot single action at AURRPC!
