Just Right Carbines 3 Gun match May 20th

There is still room. It's not to late to sign up.

We will be hosting this month's Just Right Carbines 3 Gun Match, May 20th.  It will be 6 stages and all 3 guns will be used.  We may 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
Buddy

May 5th Falling Steel match



On Saturday, May 5th we will be hosting a Falling Steel match (similar to the PSA Shootout) at York Izaak Walton.

- The match will consist of 4 stages, 25-35 targets per stage.   100-140 rounds total. (but you better bring a lot more, like twice as many)
- The match fee is $20 per time slot.
- All knockdown steel will be used.
- Squads will be limited to 10 shooters per squad (40 shooters per time slot).
- You may shoot in two divisions; however, you must shoot in two different time slots.
- You may shoot the same division twice (once in the am and once in the pm)
- You may only enter once per time slot (either as a single or partner).
- You may shoot as “Single” meaning you shoot by yourself, or as “Team” meaning you and another shooter will be shooting each stage simultaneously.  In theory each teammate only has half the targets, and each teammate only pays half the entry fee. 

There will be a more serious version of this match September 29th and 30th.  Applications for this match will be out within a day or two of this matches completion.

My personal opinions:
- Team is more fun than individual.
- Carbine is a riot.
- This is a great gateway match, for those looking to get into something more serious.
- This is awesome to bring your non-competitive buddies, kids, or wives to.  Team up with them and show them how to have a blast.

Please read the section on the divisions and rules below before signing up.  It will save us a lot of emails back and forth.

To sign up email us at yorksignup@gmail.com with:

RULES

1. Due to risk of target damage, a maximum velocity of 1350 fps will be in effect. Any questionable ammo will be chronographed.  This includes shot and PCC.  No steel shot may be used.  No shot larger than #6 will be allowed.

2. Shooter may start with the amount of ammunition allowed in their division in their magazines, but they may not chamber a round from a magazine and then switch magazines or top off.   Maximum magazine capacity is all that may be in the gun to start.

3. Shooter(s) start with firearm in hand, muzzle touching table or barrel. Shooters may take a loaded sight picture.

4. Shooters feet must remain inside their box for the duration of each stage.

5. All safeties must be on for all pistols equipped with them, and all shotguns and PCCs  without exception.  All double action revolvers or autos are not required to have safeties on, if hammer is down.  Any early shot will result in Time Slot DQ.

6. At start signal, begin shooting, and continue to shoot, reloading as necessary until all targets are down. Time will end on last shot fired, or the par time (60 seconds), whichever comes first.  If there are any targets standing, the time is automatically the par time (60 seconds) + penalties (5 seconds per target standing) unless you run out of ammo or have a malfunction that cannot be fixed before reaching the par time in which your time will be the last shot fired + penalties (5 seconds per target standing).

7. Reload from belt or table. 

8. Any ammo, magazine, moon clip, etc. that falls to the ground is dead and cannot be picked up during the run by the shooter or any squad member.

9. Please come prepared with enough magazine/speed loaders to complete the entire stage without reloading mags, or having someone else reloading mags, during the run.

14. You may re-enter in the same division.

April FunShoot Bump

This Saturday the 28th of April, we will be presenting our monthly FunShoot.
Today's Steel Challenge match was a lot of fun, and breathed new life into this wearied, overwintered soul. Next weekend brings the annual PSA Shootout, an annual pilgrimage for many of us. Therefore, this months shoot will be practice for those of us shooting PSA on Sunday.

Expect 150 or more falling steel targets, in 6-7 stages
This is a free form shoot. I will present shooters with targets, it is up to the shooter to decide how best to engage them, as long as it is done in a safe manner.
On any stage, you can run any one or combination of two of the following guns; standard pistol caliber handgun, standard pistol caliber carbine or shotgun (7 1/2 lead shot or smaller). You may bring all 3 (or more) to the shoot, and you can change the choice of guns on different stages, but only two guns max per stage.
 Registration is from 8-8:30am, safety brief at 8:45, shooting close to 9am, we should be done by 1pm-ish.
Cost is $20 for adults, $5 for kids under 18.

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.
There is no carrying of loaded firearms, open or concealed.
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 shrapnel, little flying bits of metal that can hit you on occasion. There will be eye protection for sale.
