    Demo/Club guns available. All ages welcome, but basic gun handling skills are required.

    You will find that our members are very welcoming and will assist new competitors in learning the sport.

    These reoccurring events occur every month- we will host matches barring weather or extraordinary barriers preventing the event from occurring in a safe environment.

    Heavy fog, severe weather or other acts of nature could force a postponement. We shoot in rain and wind, as long as the event can be conducted safely.

    We welcome air guns up to & including .25 cal during any open practice, but not for competition.

    During Silhouette and Field Target matches, Rifles are limited to 20 fpe or less and Pistols are 12 fpe or less.

    The match distance for Silhouette Pistol is reduced, so don’t let the lower power limit scare you.

    Calibers permitted are .177, .20 and .22 only. No .25 caliber during the match

    Air gun pellets only. No BBs, darts, slugs, plastic tipped or metal coated pellets.

    All spectators and shooters are required to wear safety glasses. Hearing protection is optional and recommended. 

     

    Cost is $10.00 for members and $15.00 for Guests. Shooters under the age of 18 accompanied by an adult shoot free.

    We typically run two Relay’s so you can shoot rifle in one relay and pistol or another rifle or pistol class in another. You can shoot two relays per event. Silhouette targets are custom built, one-of-a-kind string re-settable silhouettes so the matches tend to go quickly.

    We are  on for Field Target on Sunday, Feb. 16th. I hear it's going to be a good time- come out and see what you think?

    8:30 am setup, 9 am safety briefing, followed by a brief warmup and ( I've heard) a match for the ages 

    Come out, have stories to tell your kids and grandkids.

    If you don't have either, take some of mine- I'll make more….

    YOU HEAR THAT GUYS!!!!??!!

    DAVE IS COMING TO THE MATCH-

    I'm so excited, I'm going to the match TWICE- I'm come and unlock everything, go home and return to enjoy it that much more!

     

    Dave, I have to warn you- I saw some shooters practicing at Diablo on Wednesday. I suggest you sharpen those pellets, and crank the scope up to 11.

    (I practiced as well, but to no avail)

    Dave- post match- Bud or Coors? The Frig is cold and frosty!

    Lol, your killing me O'Bearded one. Ive been slacking on the shooting lately and look forward to pulling the trigger on some steel. Hopefully in the middle of the KZ and not chipping the paint off your face plates. I'll try and be there  xtra early to help paint targets. Silver bullets are always refreshing post match…

    The Three Amigo's from SVFTC ( Fred, Jim & Scott ) are going to make it as well for this Sundays match.

    I'm entertaining the idea of shooting it with the PISTOL just to make it more entertaining & difficult.

    This is going to be grrrrreat! Thanks for making the drive.

    Would you like to shoot One hand pistol, really amp up the difficulty?  😄

    The forecast is 10-15 mph for wind, high of 66, but  probably a bit cooler down in the pit.

    With a 6# FT legal rifle converted to pistol …. no thank you !

    If the winds are that strong … perhaps a rifle closer to 20 fpe would be challenging enough ?

    Yep, my momma would say, "you need a little more push in your pistol"

    No innuendo intended.

    bring on the 20 ft/lbs and ride the wind!
