A new shooting sport will be set up at the range this fall. 

UPDATE as of October 2021:

Progress has been made with the new pistol shooting events.


A small group has been purchasing equipment and targets, setting up the course of fire, then testing new shooting venues. This form of shooting is using both International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) and US Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) events. The group will be working on final rules for 2022 throughout the winter months, plus develop a shooting schedule for 2022. The board agreed to fund this opportunity and it was agreed to charge a fee for shooting next year. Fees will be the same as for trap at the club, $3.50 for members and $5.00 for non-members to shoot each scheduled event date, covering the costs associated with the shoots and to purchase new targets.


  It will combine two leading pistol shooting sports activities, International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) and US Practical Shooting Association (USPSA). 


  This will be a series of events that will invite our members and the general public to come out and participate. Both IDPA and USPSA are practical shooting events where shooters try to balance speed and precision, trying to shoot as quickly yet accurately as possible on a non-traditional course for shooters.


  IDPA is primarily shot in the Self-Defense Format. These matches are intended to simulate real-world self-defense situations. 


  USPSA, is more freestyle where shooters are given a line or box that they can move along or within at their discretion to engage with the different targets. 


  Our events will be taking the best of both and initially coming up with a simple and easy course of fire to master as we assess how well the events are attended. 


  The fee for members is $3.50 and $5.00 for non-members for each shoot you attend. Fees will cover the cost of materials and money spent to get started with targets and stands, as well as a timer.

Damage Caused by Steel Core Ammo


The club decided to ban the use of armor-piercing and steel core ammunition at the range. 

There is just no need to shoot this ammunition at the range and so only standard ammo is allowed. 

Our AR500 steel targets have already sustained damage and as we add resettable steel targets, steel core ammunition can quickly make them inoperable and not repairable. 

If you are unsure of your ammo, just use a magnet to check the bullets. 

We also updated the SRSC General Range Rules to address this issue for the future.
