Falling Steel match Sunday, April 7th

We will be hosting a Falling Steel match Sunday, April 7th, at 9:00 am.  

This match is very much like the PSA Shootout coming up at the end of this month.  Expect 120-130 pieces of steel on 4 stages. The stages are 28 - 33 rounds of steel each.  Entry fee is $20.  The biggest difference is that we have some additional divisions where you can load your mags up, and we allow PCCs.  

PSA Shootout rules are available at

This is a centerfire only event, and acceptable calibers include 9mm, 40S&W, and 45 acp, as well as most standard non-magnum pistol calibers.  No ammo in excess of 1350fps.  If you want to shoot something different please ask when you sign up.

Divisions will include: 
- Stock Auto (like PSA with 10 round mag restriction) 
- Stock Auto 140 (like USPSA and 3 Gun you can load them up)
- Open Auto (like PSA with 10 round mag restriction) 
- Open Auto 170 (like USPSA and 3 Gun you can load them up)
- Stock Revolver (PSA rules)
- Open Revolver (PSA rules) 
- PCC - no mag or sight restrictions at all
- No shotgun or teams this time.  Probably next time.

You may sign up now at now.  Email division and squad requests.  You should receive a confirmation within a day or two.

We will take a limited number of shooters.  This match will be fast.  We will start registration at 8:30 am, be shooting by 9:00 am and be done before lunchtime.

March FunShoot

This SUNDAY, March 31st we will be hosting our monthly FunShoot.  Yes, that is Sunday the 31st. March weather and events played absolute mayhem with our schedule, so there it is.


Last month worked so well, we are doing it again (besides, it's still set up). I got a lot of positive feedback so again, there will be no official squadding, just wander around and shoot what you want.

Pit 6: One giant stage with 3 plate racks, and all of the non-falling steel I can find, all in a line at various distances for PSA practice. Then we build a common firing line with tables. Shooters at the common line, to just plink away at will. No official organization. No resets (non falling steel here).
There will be a couple of wandering RO types about to keep tabs on safety.
The safety addition to this, is that I will require chamber flags for pistols on the line. Pistols, and PCC's here, no shotguns.

Pit 5: Man on man, or a big single. Our standard "2 of any 3 guns" rules for this stage will apply.

Pit 4, a classic FunShoot stage with a wheel and some falling stuff.

Pits 7 and 8 are full of water, if I can get them pumped out before setup, we will put stuff there.

Setup will be this Friday (the 29th) at 4pm.

Fee will be $20 for adults, $5 for anyone under 18.

Signup by 8:15, shooting at 9am.

Some Boilerplate follows:

Firearm choice will be standard pistol caliber handgun, standard pistol caliber carbine, or shotgun (7 1/2 lead shot or smaller). You may bring all 3 types (or more) to the shoot, and you can change the choice of guns on different stages, but only two guns max per stage.
Yes, .22's are acceptable.

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.

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 little flying bits of metal that can hit you on occasion. There will be eye protection for sale.

York March 17 USPSA Match Canceled

We didn't get the early spring we'd been hoping for so we will not be having a match this month. The current range condition is poor and with more snow, rain and low temps expected between now and the 17th, in the interest of safety we've cancelled the match.
We hope to see you all on Sunday April 21st for our first official USPSA match since re-affiliating. Yes, we will be having a match on Easter.

 Match will be 80-100 rounds needed and targets from 5-200 yrds. You'll need to setup a practiscore account(it's free) to register. COF may simplify if weather restricts range access.......

York 3 Gun Match Canceled

Due to the unsafe range conditions we unfortunately have to cancel the 3 gun match.  We'll see you in April.

March FunShoot is moved to March 31st.

See you then.

Egg Shoot results

Despite the cold and sloppy conditions we shot today and had a really good time.  Egg Shoots are simple, and don't require a lot of equipment.  That doesn't mean they don't require a good bit of skill, and you better know your trajectories very well.  Congratulations to Lou Levy for his win.  He hit 40 out of 40 eggs, and made it look easy.

Lou Levy 40 hits, 4 extra rounds used, 216 total score
Howard Thompson, 37, 9, 194
Don Vetter 37, 14, 191
Buddy Knight 36, 13, 187
Greg Harle 32, 17, 167
Gary Swope 23, 24, 139
Dave Williams 24, 13, 127
Chet Wise 23, 14, 116
Phil Matte 13, 20, 65

Everyone learned a lot, and I expect better score from many of us next time, unless it's windy.  22lr at 125 yards is easier when it's calm like it was today
