The Adult Rifle & Pistol League is 10 weeks of dynamic practical shooting appropriate for a variety of skill levels, and is designed to be fun while challenging shooters to improve. We also do a Beginner League version with additional coaching.

Shooters may compete with a .22LR rifle, a .22LR pistol, a non-magnum centerfire pistol, a pistol-caliber carbine, or a combination of these. Shooters may choose to shoot 1, 2, or 3 guns during the league. Each course of fire (a “stage”) will challenge a shooter’s 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 Officer.

COST:  $75 per gun for 10 weeks.  You may choose to shoot 1 gun, 2 guns ($150), or 3 guns ($225). You will need at least 50 rounds of ammunition per gun, per week.

There are four consecutive leagues each year – spring, summer, fall, and winter. Shooters will be assigned a 1-hour time slot one night each week, on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. The time slots available each night are usually 6-7pm, 7-8pm and 8-9pm, unless otherwise noted. The league meets outside of regular range operating hours, so shooters must have an Annual Membership (EPM) to participate. All league shooters must attend a mandatory safety meeting held the week before the league starts. Shooters will submit time slot requests at this meeting.

The course of fire each week is called a “stage” and each stage may include falling and non-falling steel targets, paper targets, and moving targets. There may be one or more timed “strings” which make up a stage. Each stage will be shot with each gun one-at-a-time. Shooters may be required to move about the range to engage the targets so sturdy footwear is required. No steel core, bi-metal, or tracer ammunition allowed. Targets will be engaged from as close as contact distance (paper targets only) to as far as 50 yards.

The league shoots for 10 weeks, but only the best 8 weeks for each shooter will count towards the final score. There will be no make-ups for missed weeks. Shooters completing less than 8 weeks are encouraged to continue shooting the league, but will not be eligible for prizes. At the completion of each league, there will be a dinner and awards night.

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 any .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 recommended.
  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.
  10. Rifles and pistol-caliber carbines must have a stock attached. Pistol stabilizing braces or equivalent are not permitted. Registered Short Barreled Rifles are permitted, providing the competitor is in compliance with all applicable laws.
