A word from our match director;

I know a lot of people think about coming to a match, and really, there's no reason not to come! The atmosphere of this shoot is accommodating and friendly, and nobody is ever treated like "the new guy" - this is a shoot where everyone fits in. If you want some information, or even some extra instruction, there are plenty of qualified people willing to serve. We realize that some shooters are unable to assume the different positions required for the match. If any shooter has trouble shooting from the prone or standing position, or maybe they just want to get more comfortable with using a particular rifle, they may fire the course sitting at a shooting bench.

Remember, you don't have to be experienced at service rifle competition to shoot in our As Issued Service Rifle Match - just be safe!
