|Air Rifle and Pistol||
The air gun matches are weekly in the evenings during the winter. The 2018 season has started and meets on Monday evenings through the end of February. The matches are quite informal with a lot of good fellowship involved.
Shooting is done from the standing position at paper targets at 10 meters. There are 10 relays each night, and each lasts up to 10 minutes. The scores from each week are recorded and the top 8 scores over the season are used to determine the season winner.
Younger shooters are encouraged to shoot, and while we do not have a minimum age limit we do require direct adult supervision. Depending on the size and ability of the younger shooters, younger shooters may shoot off a rest.
Most .177 or .22 caliber air rifles are allowed with any sights. They must shoot lead pellets. No BB's.
There are multiple classifications:
Adult Rifle A: This class uses the standard 10m Air Rifle target
Adult Rifle B: This class uses the 75 foot smallbore rifle target
Youth/Kids: This class uses the 75 foot smallbore riftle target
Air Pistol: This class uses the standard 10m Air Pistol target.
The clubhouse opens at 6:00 PM and shooting starts at 6:30 PM. Usually the match ends around 8:30 PM.
Eye protection is required.
