NRA Basic pistol class, for beginners

This is not connected to the basic USPSA class the same weekend.

York IWLA will be hosting a NRA basic pistol class, on May 14, taught by a NRA Certified instructor. This is a great class for beginners and teaches basic hardware and handling and shooting skills, ending with live fire on the range. If you know anyone who is interested in handgunning and needs starter instruction, so they can come to a funshoot, this is the ticket. It is great for teaching your kids, since you don't know anything......

Goto for application and info.

This class is open to the public.

April Funshoot

This Saturday, April 23rd, we will be hosting our monthly FunShoot.

Open to the safe shooting public, we invite any multiple shot handgun or carbine in standard handgun calibers (yes .22lr too), things like TC's and Derringers are discouraged, simply due to the logistics of things.

Round count is just under 100, setup at 8:30, registration 9:15 ish, shooting by 10:00.

Fee is $15 for majors, $5 for minors, no preregistration is required. Scoring is optional

As always remember the range safety rules

Basic USPSA skills class

We will be hosting a USPSA basic skills class on May 15th. (Not to be confused with the NRA basic pistol class at York on the same day) This class is intended for current USPSA shooters who are unclassified, D class or C class shoters who want some expert instruction on the grip, stance, draw, reload, accuracy, and multiple target acquisition which are the foundations of "practical shooting." Greg and I will both be instructing this class. For more information on this class go to Don't wait too long, our classes have been filling up quickly.

April USPSA results are up

Yes already! Dave and Rob did an outstanding job getting these up to the internet from the range in record speed.

A hearty thank you goes out to all the crew at York for putting on 3 USPSA matches on three consecutive Sundays. A lot of work and dedication allowed us to pull off an amazing few weeks. Be sure to thank them when you see them. These guys did a really nice job and the sacrifices they made were spectacular.

Weather for this weekends USPSA match

The forecast for the match Sunday looks good, but the weather betwen here and there is a little questionable. We are still moving forward, and fully intend to shoot as planned. We may be wearing boots with our shorts because of the mud, but at least we should be able to take our rain jackets off before we start shooting, and the footing on most of ranges is good even when wet.

If the weather would take a turn for the worst I will announce any changes here. You may want to check this site Sunday morning. I will make the final decision when I get home from work very late Saturday night, or very early Sunday morning.

Again, the forecast for Sunday is very promising, and we don't cancel matches easily at York. We're just hard-headed like that.

April USPSA matches

Sunday, April 10th York Izaak Walton league will be hosting two USPSA matches.

One will be a pistol match consisting of at least 4 stages and 110 rounds, and probably a 5th if the weather cooperates (and 122 rounds). It will cost $20, and you can shoot it either at 10:00am or 1:00pm. There will not be a classifier this month, and we will recognize all of the normal USPSA divisions and carbine. (pistol calibers only)

The other will be a rifle match and will be 3 stages for a total of 84 rounds. The Match Director for rifle is Greg Jordan, so you know you're going to have to work for this one. This match will also cost $20 and you can shoot it at either 10:00am or 1:00pm. We will recognize 3 divisions of rifles. Limited (may now have non-magnified optic), Tactical, and Open per USPSA rules.

To sign up for either or both email us at and tell us your name, USPSA #, which match or matches you want to shoot, your division for each (they are two seperate matches so you can shoot two different divisions) and any squadding preferences.

You should receive an email in a day or two confirming your entry and containing more details.

Do not hesitate to get signed up, we are only taking 36 pistol shooters and 24 rifle shooters for each time slot. We expect these matches to fill up quickly.
