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 email@example.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.
