Busy weekend April 24th and 25th - Lots of shooting opportunties

 On Saturday, April 24th we will host a Fun Shoot.

There will be 5 stages of steel for your enjoyment.  The set up will be such that you can shoot as much or as little ammunition as you like.  We know it's hard to come by these days and everyone does not have a huge stockpile.  This will also be a very 22lr friendly event.  We'll have some knock down steel (set very light), some hanging steel, and a couple steel challenge stages (which is new to fun shoots).

This is a laid back event and you can do just about anything you like as long as you're safe.  You will not need a holster.  You may use one if you like.  We don't use timers, but you can if you like.  You can shoot any standard caliber handgun or carbine (no magnums or anything faster than 1300 fps).  Shotguns are fine to use with low brass 7.5 or 8 shot.  22lr is OK.  .300 BLK subsonic is ok.  You can switch guns between stages,   Two or more people can shoot as a team.  Just be safe.  Kids and new shooters are welcome.

All guns should be unloaded before entering the club grounds.  Handguns will be carried without any magazine inserted in a holster, bag or case.  Long guns will have chamber flags (which we have for sale) and in a cart, case or on a sling.  Eye and ear protection is mandatory, at all times, even for spectators (which are welcome).

The entry fee is $20 for 18 and over.  $5 for under 18.  There is no advance sign up.  Just be there before 8:30 am if you want to shoot (after 8:30 if you want to be a spectator).  We will do a match briefing at 8:45 and be shooting by 9:00 am.

 On Sunday, April 25th we will host a Falling Steel match.

This differs from a Fun Shoot in several ways.  First, there are no 22lr or shotguns allowed.  Second, this is a timed and scored event.  Whereas there is no advance sign up required for a Fun Shoot you must pre-register for a Falling Steel by emailing us at yorksignup@gmail.com 

This match will consist of 5 stages of steel targets that must fall to score.  Each stage will have 25-35 targets and the shooter, or shooters, will have 60 seconds to knock down all that they can.  I say shooters, because it is possible to shoot this as a two person team, with both shooters attacking the same array simultaneously.

The cost is $20 for an individual, and the same for a two person team, so that's only $10 per person.

We've done these type of falling steel matches for a couple of years now and they are fast and fun.  There is no movement allowed and no holsters.  A minimal amount of equipment is required.  To increase your speed and have even more fun find a partner and shoot as a team.  It is a crazy good time.


This is a great match to shoot with your kid, spouse, or non-competitive shooter as a teammate, but it's fun for singles too.  There won't be any type of payout so what difference does it make?  Just be safe and have a good time.  That's how and why we keep the entry fee low.


Divisions include:


Stock Auto (10 Rounds)

Stock Auto 140 (140 mm mags, so up to 17-24 for most pistols)
Open Auto (red dots and 10 rounds)
Open auto 170 (red dots and 170mm mags so up to 31 +/- rounds with some pistols.
Stock Revolver (6 rounds and iron sights)
Open Revolver (unlimited rounds and red dots permitted)
PCC (Pistol caliber carbine, and carbine style "pistols" too)
IDC (I don't care, different guns on different stages, and/or not for score)

All of these divisions may be shot individually or as a two man team.  Let me know when signing up and if shooting as a team let me know who your partner is.


We will not allow shotguns, more than one gun per stage, or calibers that may damage our steel.  You will only shoot each stage once.


If you have any questions or to sign up please email yorksignup@gmail.com    Please let me know what division you'll be shooting, if you are shooting with a partner and if there is anyone you would like to be squadded with.  If you are hearing impaired let me know.  Some squads will have light as well as sound activated start signals.


There will be a maximum number of shooter allowed so don't hesitate to sign up.  We will not take walk-ons.  Be advised those who sign up and do not show up may not be allowed to sign up for future matches.  These fill up and we don't have room for those who are no shows when others are forced to sit out.

Please plan on being at the club not later than 8:15 to pay and register.  Mandatory match briefing will be at 8:45 am and we will be shooting 9:00 at the latest.

York's April 3 Gun Match Sponsored by Red Hill Tactical

We will be hosting this month's 3 Gun Match sponsored by Red Hill Tactical on April 11th.  It will be 5-6 stages depending on participation 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 $25 -$30 depending on the number of stages. 


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 


We have decided to add a 2 Gun division this year. 2 Gun Pistol/Rifle and 2 Gun Pistol/PCC. The PCC division will not shoot the rifle range stage. The divisions are as follows:


3 Gun Tac Ops 

3 Gun Limited

3 Gun Open                    Not point series eligible              

2 Gun Pistol/Rifle           Not point series eligible

2 Gun Pistol/PCC           Not point series eligible


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.
