7.26.20 22LR Precision Match

The Rimfire Precision Match (RPM) has its roots in PRS style centerfire matches. The competitor will be firing at a mix of both reactive steel and paper targets at distances from 15 up to 200 yards. A match consists of several stages and the target presentations will vary on every stage. Firing positions may include standing, kneeling, prone, barricade, and improvised field positions. Stages are timed and the time limit (par time) may be different for each stage depending on the challenge presented. Targets sizes will vary from as small as 1 MOA up to 8 MOA.


The match link is below. You'll need to register for practiscore to signup and it's free to setup.

Falling Steel Match/ Fun Shoot July 5th

This match is full, and there is a waiting list.  You may email to get on the waiting list, but it is pretty long already.  If you haven't subscribed to this blog be sure to that way you get an email as soon as we post a match notice.  Put your email in the box to the right that says "Follow by email".

On Sunday, July 5th, we will be hosting a Falling Steel match/ Fun Shoot.  This match will consist of 5 stages of steel targets that must fall to score.  Each stage will have 25-35 targets and the shooter, or shooters, will have 60 seconds to knock down all that they can.  I say shooters, because it is possible to shoot this as a two person team, with both shooters attacking the same array simultaneously.

If you wish to shoot without score, or use a 22lr it is possible (so it's like a fun shoot if you choose a non-competition aspect)


The cost is $20 for an individual, and the same for a two person team, so that's only $10 per person.


We've done these type of falling steel matches for a couple of years now and they are fast and fun.  There is no movement allowed and no holsters.  A minimal amount of equipment is required.  To increase your speed and have even more fun find a partner and shoot as a team.  It is a crazy good time.


This is a great match to shoot with your kid, spouse, or non-competitive shooter as a teammate, but it's fun for singles too.  There won't be any type of payout so what difference does it make?  Just be safe and have a good time.  That's how and why we keep the entry fee low.


Divisions include:


Stock Auto (10 Rounds)

Stock Auto 140 (140 mm mags, so up to 17-24 for most pistols)
Open Auto (red dots and 10 rounds)
Open auto 170 (red dots and 170mm mags so up to 31 +/- rounds with some pistols.
Stock Revolver (6 rounds and iron sights)
Open Revolver (unlimited rounds and red dots permitted)
PCC (Pistol caliber carbine, and carbine style "pistols" too)
IDC (I don't care, which is 22s, different guns on different stages, and/or not for score)

All of these divisions may be shot individually or as a two man team.  Let me know when signing up and if shooting as a team let me know who your partner is.


We will not allow shotguns, more than one gun per stage, or calibers that may damage our steel.  You will only shoot each stage once.


If you have any questions or to sign up please email yorksignup@gmail.com  There will be a maximum number of shooter allowed so don't hesitate to sign up.  We will not take walk-ons.


Please plan on being at the club not later than 8:15 to pay and register.  Mandatory match briefing will be at 8:45 am and we will be shooting 9:00 at the latest.

Long Range Egg Shoot Sunday, March 1st Canceled

We have canceled this match.  It will not be postponed.  We start Falling Steel in April!

On Sunday,March 1st we will be hosting our last Long Range Egg Shoot before June.  This is the one on the rifle range where you use a 22lr to shoot egg size, and shaped steel at 50. 75, 100 and 125 yards from the benches.

This year when you will sign up for a specific time, between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm and you will be expected to be there 20 minutes before your start time to prep your gear, and check in.  The match fee is $20.  At your designated time you will shoot 50 yards.  10 minutes later you will shoot 75 yards, and so on.  So theoretically you may be on the range for as little as 40 minutes.  Of course you're welcome to come earlier, and stay as long as you want to watch, but if it is cold you won't have to suffer as long.  That being said we will need spotters so everyone can't just shoot and scoot.  Plan on helping a little if you don't mind.

If the weather is extremely cold or treacherous I will cancel the match well ahead of time, but because everyone has a scheduled time being a no show or late has no remedy and will be frowned upon.

I have a two page document with some tips for beginners that may be of interest to you.  If you'd like a copy of that, and/or you'd like to sign up email me at yorksignup@gmail.com

PA Gun Laws bring pushed in 2020

There are a plethora of heinous gun laws being pushed by Bloomberg, Governor Wolf, and Representatives and State Senators with liberal leanings that are direct affront to law abiding citizens in the commonwealth this year.  Don't just read the following list and curse.  Take a few minutes to email your Representative and State Senator and tell them to protect your second amendment rights.  Explain to them that you enjoy semi-autos lawfully, and that you don't want your rights infringed.  Add that punishing criminals deters crimes.  Tell them anything, but be polite and as intelligent as you can.  Keep it short and on point.  Do it today!

It is easy to reach your Representative and State Senator. 

1. Go to https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/home/findyourlegislator/index.cfm to find out who your current Rep is by putting in your address.

2. Click on the name of your Rep or Senator.  Below their picture will be an email symbol or a link to their website.  Send a brief email to them using the appropriate link.

I have heard from these Reps and Senators that very few people actually contact them.  We need for them to hear from more of us than the enemy.  If their minds aren't already made up we want them to be swayed to our way of thinking.  If they are against us we want them to know we will vote them out of office.  Be heard.

Most of this stuff will not pass even if we do nothing.  Probably.  But it's not worth taking a chance.  We see what is being perpetrated around the country.  We must be vigilant and proactive.

Now the list of the BS they are trying to shove down our throats:

* HB 159 (Rep. Quinn) – Universal Background Checks: Subjects all firearm sales, regardless of barrel length, to background checks, and allows a person to obtain a 48-hour background check approval for a licensed gun show. Permits the issuance of a single background check approval that would remain valid for multiple days for use at gun shows across the Commonwealth.

* HB 162 (Rep. Zabel) – Firearms: One Purchase a Month: Prohibits individuals from purchasing more than one handgun every 30 days.

* HB 165 (Rep. Donatucci) – Voluntary No Firearm Purchase List: Establishes a voluntary firearm purchase exclusion list and requires the Pennsylvania State Police to check the list as part of the PICS purchase or transfer approval procedure.

* HB 202 (Rep. Cruz) – Firearm Buyback Program: Establishes a statewide gun buyback program.

* HB 204 (Rep. Cruz) – Toy or Imitation Firearms: Prohibits the importation, manufacturing, sale, presentation for sale and distribution of imitation firearms, unless the toy or imitation has been designed and manufactured in such a way that it is obvious it is not a real firearm. Provides exceptions for sales outside the Commonwealth, use in theater or film, and antiques.

* HB 307 (Rep. Gainey) – Assault Weapons Ban: Bans the possession, purchase, transfer, use or manufacture of an assault weapon.

* HB 326 (Rep. Warren) – No-Fly List Firearms Ownership Prohibition: Prohibits anyone whose name appears on the FBI’s terrorist screening database from purchasing or possessing a firearm in Pennsylvania.

* HB 336 (Rep. Cruz) – Firearms on the Capitol Complex: Prohibits the carrying of firearms, rifles and shotguns on the Capitol Complex and requires lockers to be provided for the temporary checking of firearms.

* HB 344 (Rep. Cruz) – Shooting Range Background Checks: Requires patrons of a shooting range to complete a gun rental application, which shall include a background check, before they may be approved to rent a firearm. The approval must be renewed yearly.

* HB 377 (Rep. Isaacson) – Destroying Confiscated or Recovered Firearms: Requires that law enforcement agencies in the Commonwealth destroy confiscated or recovered firearms if the owner cannot be found within 120 days

* HB 378 (Rep. Isaacson) – Prohibiting the Mentally Ill from Possessing Firearms: Prohibits the possession of firearms by individuals who have been ordered to undergo involuntary mental health treatment on an outpatient basis.

* HB 459 (Rep. Cruz) – Pennsylvania State Police Notifications: Amends the Uniform Firearms Act to require that the Pennsylvania State Police be notified within 72 hours, instead of the current 7 days, that an individual has received mental health adjudication, treatment, commitment, or suffers from substance abuse or addiction.

* HB 462 (Rep. Cruz) – Pennsylvania State Police Notifications: Amends the Mental Health Procedures Act to require that the Pennsylvania State Police be notified within 72 hours, instead of the current 7 days, that an individual has been adjudicated incompetent, has been involuntarily committed to a mental institution for inpatient care and treatment, or who has been involuntarily treated.

* HB 467 (Rep. Cruz) – Firearms Eligibility License: Requires individuals wishing to purchase a firearm to first obtain a firearms eligibility license.

* HB 525 (Rep. Briggs) – Protecting Children from Accidental Gun Injuries and Deaths: Requires a person who stores or leaves a firearm on premises under his or her control, and who knows that a minor would be likely to gain access to the firearm without permission of a parent or guardian, to keep the firearm in a locked container or other secure location.

* HB 532 (Rep. Warren) – Safe Storage of Firearms When Residing With An Individual Not to Possess Firearms: Requires the safe storage of firearms if the owner resides with an individual who may not legally possess a firearm.

* HB 673 (Rep. Warren) – Background Checks: Eliminates all but the family transfer exception to the requirement of a background check prior to purchasing or transferring a firearm.

* HB 699 (Rep. McCarter and Rep. Sturla) – 3D Printed Firearms: Prohibits individuals from 3D printing a firearm and requires all 3D printed firearms to be subject to the Uniform Firearm Act.

* HB 700 (Rep. McCarter and Rep. Sturla) – Prohibiting Undetectable Firearms: Prohibits the manufacturing, sale, and possession of undetectable firearms.

* HB 724 (Rep. DeLuca) – Concealed Carry Permit Training: Requires individuals to complete a six hour firearm training program with a certified firearms instructor approved by the National Rifle Association prior to receiving a concealed carry permit.

* HB 726 (Rep. DeLuca) – Consecutive Sentences for Firearm Charges: Provides for consecutive sentences for firearm charges with respect to mandatory five-year sentencing upon conviction of a violent crime with a firearm.

* HB 738 (Rep. Kirkland) – Ammunition Purchases: Requires an individual to present photographic identification when purchasing firearm ammunition.

* HB 740 (Rep. Kirkland) – Firearm: Toy Purchases: Prohibits the purchase of realistic toy firearms by individuals under 18 years of age, unless they are accompanied by an adult at the time of purchase.

* HB 1028 (Rep. McCarter) – Firearm Restraining Orders: Allows a law enforcement officer, family or household member, person licensed under the Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists and Professional Counselors Act, or a health care practitioner to petition the court for a firearm restraining order enjoining a person from purchasing, otherwise receiving or possessing a firearm, ammunition or other weapon.

* HB 1162 (Rep. Schweyer) – Minimum Age of 21 to Purchase Semiautomatic Firearms: Prohibits the sale or possession of an assault weapon by individuals below the age of 21 and establishes a definition for assault weapons.

* HB 1288 (Rep. Sanchez) – Lost and Stolen Firearms: Requires a person who lawfully owns or possesses a firearm to report the loss or theft within 72 hours of the discovery of the loss or theft and establishes penalties for violations.

* HB 1289 (Rep. Sanchez) – Rapid Fire or “Multiburst Trigger Activators”: Updates the state’s definition of “offensive weapons” to include “multiburst trigger activators,” thus outlawing them.

* HB 1075 (Rep. Stephens) – Extreme Risk Protection Orders: Establishes extreme risk protection orders, which permit a judge to temporarily revoke a dangerous individual’s right to possess or purchase a firearm.
