Everyone is welcome to come out to watch any of the matches. It is not required but highly recommend that you try shooting one of the IDPA, or IPSC type pistol matches before moving on to a Subgun or Belt Fed match. You must supply all your own equipment including firearm, ammo, magazines, magazine pouches and all needed safety equipment. The Subgun matches will be held on the Practical Pistol bays and the Belt Fed match will be held on the High Power range. If you are a new shooter you will be required to shoot the match with one of the experienced shooters that will point out any safety issues and answer any questions.

The stages for both the Subgun and Belt Fed matches will be a mixture of fun and tactical targets. They will always test your shooting abilities.

The stage RO will make any rulings required. If required, the Match Director will be the final authority on any ruling. Once you leave the range your score is final.
