Rifle & Pistol Events for July 2021

We hope you’re having a great summer. After a busy month at the range, there’s more to come in July! If you’re on Facebook, please like our page and follow our feed to see the latest updates. We’re on Instagram too!

This month we’re hosting the US Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) Alaska State Sectional Championship. Staff match is Friday July 16, main match Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 – single day format. This is a 10-stage Level II match, USPSA membership required. Staff shoot free! If you’re a USPSA RO and interested in working this match, please check the box when you sign up on Practiscore. After signing up, use your member account to pay, or contact the front desk. BRSP members please note multiple ranges will be closed July 13 through 18 for the championship, and there’s no rifle/pistol leagues Tuesday through Friday that week. Ranges A, B, D and H will remain open for member use. 

Summer Rifle/Pistol Leagues are under way. These leagues are for BRSP members only (youth leagues are for BRSP youth members or dependents of annual members). We have some ammo available for league shooters who need it. Here’s a fun short video showing our brand new Youth Beginner’s League. The next Youth .22 Rifle League season begins late August, all other leagues begin the fall season late September.

Instructor Amy Abbott is teaching a Pistol 1 class on Saturday July 31. Come get your learning on! Classes are open to members and non-members. Members get a discount. Sign up using your member account or call us.

Birchwood and the Alaska Rifle Club are teaming up to offer a league series of NRA-approved smallbore silhouette rifle matches (.22LR caliber). Under match director David Allen, shooters will compete Monday evenings from July 26 through August 16. New shooters welcome, no need for fancy gear! This league is open to members and non-members. Members get a discount. Sign up using your member account or call us. 

USPSA Tuesdays continue this summer with evening matches July 6, 20 and 27. Steel Challenge matches are this Saturday, July 3, and also Saturday July 31. Both with morning and afternoon squad options. Our regular monthly 3-gun match is scheduled for Saturday July 10, and our 2-gun match for Saturday July 24. Sign up on Practiscore, then register/pay using your member account or call us.

Looking ahead, Birchwood is proudly hosting the inaugural Alaska Governor’s Cup on the weekend of August 21 and 22. This will include 3-gun and 2-gun matches, a trap shoot, various side events, and a charity buy-a-plate dinner Saturday night attended by the Governor. Proceeds will go to the Alaska Armed Services YMCA. Stay tuned for more details.

Please note, to shoot our rifle and pistol matches you’ll need to reserve a slot using Practiscore (it’s free to create an account) and then register and pay using your member account. For classes and leagues, just go straight to your member account. If you need assistance, call us on (907) 688-2809.

Thanks for helping make Birchwood a great place to shoot. Come on out to plink or practice, sign up for a class, or try one of our many shooting sports. And tell your friends!
