Ocktorba FunShoot

York IWLA presents our Monthly FunShoot, this Saturday, the 27th of October.

Consisting of around 100 targets, this shoot will be open to all standard caliber handguns and carbines, with 2 hybrid classes for handgun/shotgun (7 1/2 shot or smaller, 4 slugs minimum), or handgun/carbine.

This month we honor Halloween. Be prepared for ghostees and goblins, spiders and spooks.  We will have 6-7 stages including spooky steel, a little USPSA style monster action, gallery of not so much stuff, choose your own clays (if you dare), terror on the bullseye stage, and (if mother nature cooperates) bobbing for pumpkins.

There will be 3 scoring classes:
Points, where you will be scored by total points in an exact round count count,
Timed, where the fastet gun to smash all targets wins,
IDC, a non scored option where you do pretty much what you want, as long as you are safe, within reason, and under the guidance of your squad Range Officer.

The weather is looking reasonable for the weekend, so lets say final setup and check in start at 7:30, shooter brief about 8:30 and shooting 'round 8:45.

Cost is $15 adults, $5 for under 18.  OH! And if you show up in costume (firearm safe, even a witches hat alone will do, and I don't care if you are your kids worst nightmare, dressing up as yourself won't make it past the panel of judges...), you get $5 off the price of admission, and a small and totally insignificant prize will go to the best costume.  

Preregister now at yorksignup@gmail.com.  We will only be accepting 50 shooters max.

Remember, York is a cold range, please have all firearms unloaded and secured when you arrive at the range, including CC permit holders.  Handle firearms only after you register, and only at the safe tables or under direction of a range officer.

See you all Saturday
