Nice weather, and a small crowd.  We were done in a jiffy and Rob Burkindine had just enough time to establish complete dominance.  His 9 hits at 125 were very impressive.  It is interesting that today bolt action rifles had no advantage over semi autos.  Thanks to all for coming out.

Long Range Egg Shoot Saturday, September 7th

    On Saturday September 7th we will host a long range egg shoot.  Eggs are steel targets the size of large chicken eggs.  There will be 10 eggs for each shooter at 50, 75, 100 and 125 yards.  Oh, you think that's not long range?  Well it is when you're using a 22 long rifle.  That is the only caliber acceptable. 

     At each distance there will also be a sighter plate.  When it's your turn you will be allowed 15 rounds to shoot at the eggs and/or the sighter plate.   Each hit on an egg is worth 5 points.  Each round not used is worth 1 point.  Spare rounds at one distance may not be used at other distances.

    You may use any type of 22lr rifle, and it may be scoped.  You will also be allowed to shoot any position including from the bench with bags or rests.

    Cost is $20.  If you have earned pistol committee credits they may be applied for discount.

    To sign up please email yorksignup@gmail.com with your name so we know how many people to expect.  We will limit the match to 40 shooters so we should be done by noon.

    On match day please be at the rifle range by 8:30 to pay up and get ready.   8:15 if you want to help set up.

September 8th 3 Gun Match Sponsored by IWI

We will be hosting this month's 3 Gun Match sponsored by IWI, September 8th.  It will be 6 stages and all 3 guns will be used.  We will be using slugs, rifle and shotgun slings this match, and we do expect to use most of, if not all, of the 200 yards available on the rifle range.  The match fee will be $30.

The match day schedule is as follows:

7:00 finish set up (help is always appreciated)
8:00 registration begins
8:30 registration ends (anyone arriving after 8:30 is a spectator)
8:45 mandatory match briefing
9:00 shooting begins

To sign up for this match email us at yorksignup@gmail.com with your name, division, and squad requests.  You should receive a confirmation within a day or two.

Don't take too long to sign up.  We do have a maximum number of shooters we will take for each of our matches and we do expect the matches to fill quickly.  Conversely, don't sign up if you don't intend to shoot, and if something comes up and you're not going to make it please let us know as soon as possible.  The Thursday before the match at midnight is the cut off for backing out without penalty.  People who persist in not showing up after signing up will not be invited back.  We want to benefit as many shooters as possible this season.


Thanks

August FunShoot

This Saturday, August 24th  we will be hosting our monthly FunShoot.
We will present you with 6-7 stages of 20-25 falling steel targets each.
Setup will be this Friday (the 23rd) at 5pm. Remember, the quality of the event depends on setup turnout.

This months special will be the killing of tomatoes. Yes, ripe, red tomatoes. Think 12ga slug.....

Fee will be $20 for adults and $5 for anyone under 18.
Signup by 8:15ish, safety brief at 8:45ish, shooting at 9ish.

Boilerplate follows:

Firearm choice will be standard pistol caliber handgun, standard pistol caliber carbine, or shotgun (7 1/2 lead shot or smaller). You may bring all 3 types to the shoot, and you can change the choice of guns on different stages, but only two guns max per stage.
Yes, .22's and  .300 BO subsonic are acceptable.

York is a cold range. Unloaded firearms are carried around the range holstered, boxed, bagged, slung, carted or in a sock. Long guns require a chamber flag, and they will be for sale.

Bring family and friends, we are very new shooter and kid friendly. Spectators are welcome!

Everyone on the range MUST WEAR EYE PROTECTION WITH SIDE SHIELDS. We will be shooting steel, and it creates little flying bits of metal that can hit you on occasion. There will be eye protection for sale.

cheers

PA State Falling Steel Championship

On Sunday, October 13th we will be hosting the PA State Falling Steel Championships.  This is an opportunity to shoot a lot of steel really fast.   We plan on having 7 stages with around 200 pieces of steel.  What makes our Falling Steel matches different from the others is that we allow standard capacity magazines, shotguns, pistol caliber carbines, and even two person teams!  You can even shoot twice in the same same time slot and there are two time slots.  This match will cap out at 84 shooters per time slot so do not hesitate to get your application in the mail, or use the online option.

If you shoot our Fun Shoots, USPSA, 3 Gun, or steel either at our club or elsewhere you are going to love this match.  It's also so simple that fairly new shooters will do well too.

At $40 it is a bargain, and this year we will experiment with some small payouts to divisions with three or more shooters in them.  This is interesting as there are 22 divisions for you to choose from when you consider the team option.

The application is at the following link -  Falling Steel Application - and the rules and explanations of the different divisions is part of the application.
