Wednesday Night Shoots

The 2018 Wednesday night shoots are set up and ready to go.  Wednesday shoots start on May 16 and the last shoot will be September 5.  This year there have been a couple of ‘new’ shoots with a Defensive Pistol Challenge and Rifle Challenge being added.  You can participate in one of the shoots or you can participate in all of them.  These shoots are open to the public so Fish and Game Club membership is not required to participate.  Each month on the first Wednesday there will be a Tactical 22 shoot, the second and fourth Wednesdays will be Steel Plates Competition followed by Western Showdown, the third Wednesday will be the Defensive Pistol Challenge, and the months that have a fifth Wednesday will be the Rifle Challenge.

Tactical 22s

The First Wednesday at 6:00 pm

 

For each round the participants will shoot three sleds of six plates each grouped together. First with a hand gun from the draw and then a rifle.  The hand gun starts with the magazine in, chamber empty, and reholstered.  The rifle starts with the magazine in, round in the chamber and at low ready.

 

This is a timed event. The time starts when the buzzer sounds and when you have knocked down all 18 of the plates the time stops on your last shoot.  The best two rounds with the hand gun and the best two rounds with the rifle will make up your total score.

Western Showdown

The Second and Fourth Wednesdays right after the Steel Plates Competition

 

The Western Showdown is a Timed Match, shot with a hand gun from the draw and a lever action rifle.

We have a Centerfire Match and a Rimfire Match.

The course of fire will be different each round and one round can be shot with the weak hand.

Your recorded time for each round will be the total of the time on the Shot Timer for your last shot and any penalty seconds.  Penalty seconds are: plus 2 seconds for each plate not down, plus 4 seconds if you shoot them out of order, plus 10 second if you receive a “Spirit of the Game” penalty.

The lever action rifle should be 22LR or a Pistol Caliber (357, 38, 44, or 45) and the hand gun should be a single action revolver or a 1911 pistol.  ONLY LEAD BULLETS are allowed.  Holsters for the hand guns should be western style.

Normally, the rifles are shot from 25yards and the hand guns from 10 yards.

Defensive Pistol Challenge

The Third Wednesday of each month at 6:00pm

 

COLD RANGE: Guns can only be handled in the Red Zone, or when instructed by the Range Officer when it is your turn to compete.

 

RED ZONE:   NO AMMUNITION in the Red Zone area.  This is the area where you take your gun out from the case and put it in your holster.  You may also practice your draw in this area.

 

This will be a timed event using IDPA type targets. You will start with your pistol and ammunition concealed. Your time will start with the buzzer and stop with your last shot. One second will be added for each shot not in the 0 (zero) scoring area that was required on the targets in that round. Two seconds for each pepper-popper left standing. Five seconds for shooting a non threat.

 

Each participant will have a maximum of 31 rounds of ammunition in each round of competition. Some scenarios may require less rounds.

Rifle Challenge

The Fifth Wednesday of the month at 6:00pm (May 30st & August 29th)

 

Each participant will shoot a target (10 rounds) from the bench, the kneeling, and the standing positions. The Match score will be the total of these three targets (300 is the best you can do).

We will have a Centerfire Match from 100 yards and a Rimfire Match from 50 yards. We hope all participants will shoot in both Matches, but if you only want to shoot in one that is fine.

This will be like our other Wednesday Programs.  Except it is a Rifle Challenge.

We will be shooting for the fun and bragging rights.
