The Adult Rifle & Pistol League is 10 weeks of dynamic practical shooting appropriate for all skill levels from basic to expert, and is designed to be fun while also increasing your shooting skills. Each league starts with simple stages and progresses to more difficult stages. You may compete with a .22LR rifle, a .22LR pistol, a non-magnum centerfire pistol, a pistol-caliber carbine, or a combination of these. You may shoot 1, 2, or 3 guns during the league. Each course of fire (a “stage”) will challenge your ability to shoot safely, rapidly and accurately, at a variety of steel and paper targets. All stages are shot under the direct supervision of a Range Safety Officer.

There are three consecutive leagues each year – fall, winter, and spring. We do not shoot leagues in the summer. Shooters will be assigned a 1-hour block of time on one night each week. Which nights we shoot will depend on how many shooters sign up. The blocks available each night are 6-7pm, 7-8pm and 8-9pm. The league meets outside of regular range operating hours, so you must be an Exclusive Park Member (EPM) to participate. All league shooters must attend a mandatory safety and scheduling meeting held the week before the league starts. Shooters will submit time slot requests at this meeting.

To shoot the league you will need the following equipment and ammunition:

  1. Eye and ear protection.
  2. Minimum of 50 rounds for each gun per week (assuming zero misses, so bring extra – 100 recommended).
  3. Suitable belt and holster for the centerfire pistol (holster must cover trigger guard and retain the pistol securely during movement).
  4. Case or chamber flag for the .22LR pistol and rifle/carbine.
  5. Clothing and footwear suitable for shooting outdoors.
  6. At least 3 magazines for each firearm, or 5 for single-stack pistols. More is preferred.
  7. Centerfire pistols must be .38 special/9mm or larger caliber, non-magnum, with a muzzle velocity not less than 700 fps and not more than 1250 fps.
  8. Pistol-caliber carbines must be a centerfire, non-magnum caliber. No bottleneck cartridge calibers permitted. Muzzle velocity must be not less than 700 fps and not more than 1500 fps. Drum magazines are not permitted.
  9. We do not allow the use of rifles with tubular magazines which load from the muzzle.

Stages may include falling and non-falling steel, paper targets, and moving targets. One to three stages will be set-up each week, and each stage will be shot with each gun one-at-a-time. You may be required to move about the range to engage the targets so wear sturdy footwear. No steel core, bi-metal, or tracer ammunition allowed. If your ammo damages the steel targets, you will be disqualified and will have to pay to replace the target, including shipping cost. Targets will be engaged from as close as contact distance (paper targets only) to as far as 50 yards.

  • The cost of the 10 week league is $65 for one gun, $130 for two guns, or $195 for three guns.
  • The Club has Browning Buck Mark rifles and Browning Buck Mark pistols for EPM member use during the league. If you are using the club rifles or pistols, you must buy the ammo from the club.
  • The league shoots for 10 weeks, and the best 8 weeks for each shooter will count towards their final score. There will be no make-ups for missed weeks. Shooters completing less than 8 weeks are welcome to continue shooting the league, but will not be eligible for prizes.
  • At the completion of each league, there will be an awards presentation with dinner provided.
