Shooters are required to wear an Old West or Victorian era style outfit and apparel.
One exception to this is that safety glasses and hearing protection must be worn when shooting.
Depending on the standards of the sanctioning organization, clothing may be historically accurate for the late 19th century or may just be suggestive of the Old West.
Some groups allow for "costumes" similar to that worn by characters in a western B-movie, such as Hopalong Cassidy or by a television star like Richard Boone in Have Gun Will Travel.

for other shooting sports,
but not Cowboy Action Shooting!
