It is difficult to succeed in competitive shooting without an accurate, reliable firearm. After the gun, when you add the cost of additional gear necessary for action shooting—spare magazines, holsters, etc.—it can get expensive. Luckily, there are companies such as EAA Corp. that make it easy to find a quality pistol for action pistol that won't break the bank. Here are five you may want to look at.

Tanfoglio Witness Elite Stock II

In 2020, the Tanfoglio Witness Stock II lineup repeated as the second most popular pistol used by shooters at the USPSA Production National Championships. Chrome-finished, the EAA Tanfoglio Witness Elite Stock 2 is a great choice for competitive shooters looking for an affordable pistol to get started in USPSA Production division. With an overall weight of 2.69 pounds and 8-inch overall length, this hefty 9 mm can manage recoil well. Plus, the Italian-built Tanfoglio guns are known for a fine fit and finish. SKU: 600615; $1,301 for the 9 mm.

The EAA website describes the Girsan MC1911 Match Elite .45 ACP as "ready for everyday carry, competition, on the job carry or just going to the range for fun."

Additionally, the competition trigger and rear sight will aid you on the firing line. SKU: 390095; $856 for the .45 ACP.

This is the same gun that JJ Racaza used to win a silver medal in the Men's Open division at the 2017 IPSC Handgun World Shoot in Chateauroux, France. Although that was a few years ago, keep in mind that Racaza was competing against more than 400 competitors at the match.
