Markmanship Shooting Program Begins - December 9, Friday 10A

Let the season begin!  This one is going to be fun!


We begin the Markmanship shooting program!

The perfect self-paced shooting activity to help develop your skills and reward your achievements.  We will be following  the NRA Markmanship Program. This is the perfect shooting activity to help develop your skills and reward your achievements. There is no competition, no timer and no winners — everyone becomes a winner when they improve their shooting.

This is an ongoing program, shooting throughout the winter season.  The first Friday of each month shooters will meet to submit their targets, receive the next months shooting level, receive shooting instruction and perhaps have a big smile on their results.

Any semi-automatic pistol or revolver may be used.  All calibers compete together. Multiple pistol calibers allowed.
This is a FREE program.  No preregistration required, be ready by 10A.  Targets will be provided. Explanation of the program will be detailed.  

What to Bring, at least 50 rounds.
