The annual Club Championship matches were held on Saturday September 6.

We had a pretty good turnout, compared to the last couple of years.  The weather cooperated and we were able to fire from all distances.

The Senator Martin Match is a 20 round for score match that is fired offhand, and unsupported, from the 200 yard line.  It requires the use of a .30 caliber rifle with iron sights.

The Club Long Range Rifle match is fired in 2 stages from the prone position at 500 yards using only a sling.

The first stage is 20 rounds for score using Iron Sights, and the second stage is 20 rounds for score using Any Sights.

You do not have to use the same rifle for each stage, or you may use Iron Sights for both stages.

You may also fire Out of Competition, for fun, using any firearm that will put rounds in the target.

Note the F-Class shooter at the bottom of the results.

  

 
Ladies and Gentlemen...
Due to the goodness of his heart, and the fact that he has so much free time, Club member Kevin Powell has supplied and installed new number boards for our outdoor range.
For what it is worth, they look great to me!
 
Many thanks for taking the time and energy to do this.
It is a real improvement.
 


 Our next Club meeting will be on Wednesday October 1, 2014

The meeting will start at 7:00 PM

Here is a link to directions to the Indoor Range & Meeting Room

  The south entrance to the creek at our outdoor range has been widened.  Some of the fill that had washed downstream has been retrieved and repositioned back into the crossing bed.  It is a bit rough.  Please be careful when crossing the creek.


The water level in the creek at the outdoor range is around 4 inches deep.

The picture below presents a view of our range from the 500 yard firing line.
The grass covered mound down range and to the left of the trail to the targets
is our 300 yard firing line, and the mound farther down range and to the right
of the trail is our 200 yard firing line. You can see our Small Bore, Black Powder,
and Pistol covered firing line to the right. We also have 5 new covered benches
that are not shown here. I will try to get up a new picture as soon as I can.
Our property runs from the mowed line just left of the two track trail just left
of the targets and to the tree line on the right side. It extends up and over the
hill and beyond the impact area.

Here we have a link to the Tri-State Gun Shows Schedule.  Our President, Don Copple, and his wife, Terry, sets up and runs our Southern Indiana Rifle & Pistol Club display table at these and other shows in the area. Any member is welcome to come to the shows and visit the display table as well as bring something to sell or trade. Plan to spend a few minutes working the table and offer your experiences to prospective members and show them that we are not just a bunch of folks with guns. We have a really fun sport and welcome any responsible applicants to join our group.

 We hope to have you as a guest at an upcoming match or as a member.


  

  Our new target carriers have been INSTALLED.

One handed operation is now the normal way to do it.  No more struggling with worn and rickety wooden structures with greasy poles and cables.
