Our matches shoot a national match course of fire at 200 yards on reduced targets for the 300 and 600 yard stages. The match is for

Modern service rifles (AR 15), M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, 1903 Springfield, 1903 A3, M1A (M14); and, all other safe to fire service rifles.

The course of fire:

  • 5 Sighter rounds from any position

  • 10 Rounds Sustained Fire sitting at 200 yards
  • 10 Rounds Sustained Fire prone at the 300 yard reduced target

We also shoot some specialty matches following a similar type of outline used by the “CMP” with M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, Springfield Match, and a M1A (M14).

Additionally, we shoot a “Center fire Bench Rest” Match for 20 to 30 caliber; no magnum or muzzle brakes; it consists of a 30 round match shoot at 200 yards on a 50 yard target with sighters; front rest permitted only; no back rest.

Lastly the club shoots some 22 LR “Rim fire Sporter” matches; it follows the same outline as the National Match with the exception that you will shoot 60 rounds consisting of rapid and slow fire in all positions from 50 and 25 yards. This match is a standard 22 LR with no specialty equipment needed; also, we shoot a 22 Prone match at 200 yards on the 600 yard reduced target; this is a 40 round match. The last match is a 22 LR Bench Rest Match at 50 yards; it is a 25 round match– front and rear rest used.
