The object of the 123 is to score 123 points! Go over and you are out! The format is: 5 shots at a 100 yard range fired from the sitting position in 25 seconds, and then 5 shots at the walking target at a 50 yard range fired from the standing position. At this point in the match you will be given time to score your target (using your spotting scope) and total up your score – here is where the math comes into it and you must calculate how many points are required to wind up with a score of 123. The next target will be at 50 yards and is shot at from the leaning position - Since there is no time limit you can score (through your spotting scope) each shot as you shoot it and update your total. The last target will be at 50 yards and you will shoot however many shots you need to total your score up to 123 – careful now as the targets we use only go down to a “5” ring for scoring. For fun you can’t beat this shoot so get your rifle ready and come out, it is a really easy (anyone can win) way to get a “TOP GUN “ hat.
The Hunters Shoot provides great shooting practice and also good competition. It’s like a hunting trip: you bring your hunting rifle and a box(20) of shells. You will be required to shoot 5 times at each of 4 targets; ranging from 20 to 200 yards away. The format is different every month and is always posted at the rifle range as well as E-mail. The first squad (7 shooters) always start at 10:00 and your done in about 20 minutes. Top prize is the coveted "TOP GUN" hat.
This is a test of your ability to reload accurate ammunition and then shoot perfect targets. We have no limits on rifle, scope, or rest- just bring your best hand loads and let’s have some fun. Bench Rest has three classes...Target rifle(heavy barrel), hunting rifle (light barrel) or Rim fire rifle.
The format is 3 non-consecutive squads - 5 scoring shots in each. (each round includes a sighting target for your fine tuning). Ranges vary and are 50,100 or 200 yards or a combination of all three. Top Prize is a "Rifle Man" Patch.
This shoot is held with Rimfire rifles, normally 22 LR. The shoot format is decided by a shake of the dice just before the shoot starts. Since the format is unknown you must be prepared to shoot in several different positions at different ranges and targets The possible positions include prone, kneeling, sitting, leaning and offhand (the moving target will not be used). Ranges include 100, 50 and 20 yards and any rimfire hunting rifle regardless of sights can be used. Cost to shoot is five dollars plus a package of thawed ground wild game meat which will be turned into lunch for us all by the boys in the first squad. If last year was one of those years let us know and we will find a package of game meat for you.
We shoot .22 rifles on Wednesday evening starting at 6:30 PM all year - indoor range in winter and outdoor rifle range in summer. The format is 4 targets ;10 shots each from the prone, kneeling, sitting and standing positions. Cost 3;00 each shooter and there are no prizes just bragging rights. If you do not have your own rifle the club has 7 target. 22 rifles and ear protection for you to use at these matches...you must supply the ammo.
The Pistol Shooters come out on Mondays at 7:00 PM all year long. All members are welcome or if you're not a member come on and to learn about the shooting sports and the legal and safety requirements to firearm ownership.
The Trap Shooters shoot every Sunday at noon, cost is $4 a round (25 shots). New Shooters will be briefed prior to shooting or we can have a private session upon request.
