Each year, we kick off the shooting season with a free Garand clinic. Run by a trained instructor, it will have info useful to the new and experienced shooter alike. Contact us for more info, including time and location.


We have added a bonus pistol match on the fifth Saturday in July, and it follows the CMP Military & Police Pistol Match rules. However, if your pistol does not meet those requirements, we have created an OUTLAW class that allows any pistol you may have. Registration fees are the same as for our regular matches.
