Rules:  The match targets will be B-27 silhouette targets (24" X 45").  Only 6 rounds will be loaded in magazines or revolvers at one time.  All stages will start with a holstered pistol. No loaded weapons allowed off the firing line and loading on the line shall only be done on command.  All stages will be shot double action.  Single action semi-autos will start "cocked and locked".  Scoring of your target will be completed by the contestant to the left of you on the firing line. All decisions by the designated Range Officer shall be final.

Second Match

Each month, after the first match is concluded, a second "special" match will be held.  These might have special calibers, barrel lengths, or distances for stages.  If you wish to participate in the "special" match, you may, but you may also re-shoot the first match with your standard pistol.  No match fee is being assessed at this time for the second match.  We may later assess a fee to cover the cost of targets, pasters, and staples used for the "special" match.

If you would  like to shoot a match, please attend one Saturday.  It is preferred that each participant observe a match before shooting one.
