October Falling Steel Match

October 14th and 15th we will be hosting a Falling Steel Match very similar to the PSA Shootout instead of our monthly 3 Gun match.  This match will consist of 6 stages, each of which will have between 25 and 30 pieces of steel on them.  The match fee is $30 (per time slot), and you may shoot all three time slots if you like.  We will be shooting Saturday AM (9:00 AM) Saturday PM (1:00) and Sunday AM (9:00).  Squads will be limited to 12 shooters so things should go quickly.

This match should have a broad appeal.  3 Gun shooters can use their pistol, shotgun, and even PCC.  Fun Shooters will find it very familiar.  If you've never shot a match before it should be easy enough to do.  There are a lot of options as far as what kind of guns you can use.  Everyone can use practice shooting steel, and there won't be a ton of pressure, as we will not be doing payouts to winners.

The other interesting thing we're trying this match is we are allowing two person teams to shoot.  Two people will be shooting each array simultaneously, if they choose to shoot as a team.

For more details please read the rules and match information that is attached to the application available at http://tinyurl.com/York-Falling-Steel

We will only be taking 216 shooters total, so don't wait too long to get your application in the mail.

JULY MULTIGUN RESULTS

Sorry for the delay but here are the results from the July Match Sponsored by Sensibly Armed!
JULY RESULTS

Also here are the point series standings as of July.  Remember that these results may not show an exact representation of the final 16 because only the top 3 matches count for each shooter.  These are total points.  Some people have 4 match scores and some have less.

POINT SERIES RESULTS

The results have been edited to reflect an error from last posting and now are showing the best 3 match scores for each shooter as the final results will be figured this way.  Your best 3/6 scores will be used to determine the top 16 for the Oct 1 shoot off!

July FunShoot

This Saturday, the 22nd of July we will be hosting our monthly FunShoot.

Target count will be around 100-125 falling steel targets (maybe more....). There will be some movement required of the shooter, but not a ton.
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 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.

There will be a setup for this Friday afternoon, the 21st at 3pm. Email me if you are interested in helping out, it will take less than an hour.

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.

July Multi-Gun match

The July match is now full as of 12:02 am 7/6/2017.  You may still email yorksignup@gmail.com if you would like to be added to the waiting list.

We will be hosting this month's 3 Gun Match on Sunday, July 9th.  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.  Thursday July 6th 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.
