All shooting events will be held concurrently between 12:30 PM to 4 PM. 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place medals will be awarded (except junior non-competitive events).


PISTOL COMPETITIONS / EVENTS – Each event will have adult and junior divisions – as well as divisions for both iron and optical sights. There will also be a non-competitive junior “fun” shoot stage (.22LR caliber). See GENERAL SAFETY RULES FOR ALLOWABLE PISTOL CALIBERS.


Precision Pistol: This competition simulates the rapid-fire portion of the one-handed bullseye competition (at 7yds). Starts with 5 rounds in the pistol, shooters have 10 seconds for 5 shots, then a reload for 5 more rounds, followed by a second shooting session. Most pistol calibers allowed, with either iron or optical sights. Scoring is total # of target hits.


.22 Steel: This is a short version of DSC’s monthly .22 steel plate match – 2 stages with up to 6 plates. You are allowed up to 10 rounds for each timed stage {targets missed = a 5 sec. penalty}. Best combined time of both stages is the winner. There are both Junior and Adult divisions with both iron and optic classes. Any .22 LR pistol can be used; revolver or semi-auto.


USPSA: This event simulates a short course of a USPSA Competition with a modified start. This two-handed event starts with a loaded magazine; muzzle pointed at the starting post, finger off the trigger. Shooters are timed until the course of fire is complete. Most Pistol calibers allowed, with either Iron or optic sights (red dot). Scoring is points divided by time for a hit factor.


Juniors: One pistol bay is set up for the juniors who are not able to participate in the competitive events – must be accompanied by a guardian – .22LR caliber only. There will be standard bullseye targets plus some novelty targets as a fun shoot (e.g., balloons)


RIFLE EVENTS: All shooting will be on the 200yd. rifle range from the bench – all relays are 10 rounds in 10 minutes (max). Targets will be set at 50yds, 100yds, and 200yds, and will be the appropriate type for the distance fired. Events are:


50 yd: adult & junior – iron and optical sights divisions

100 yd: adult & junior – iron and optical sight divisions

200 yd modern rifle precision: adult – iron and optical sight divisions

200 yd modern rifle timed: adult – iron and optical sight divisions

200 yd precision rifle: adult & junior – iron and optical sight divisions

200 yd timed rifle: juniors – iron and optical sight divisions


Only legal sporting rifles will be allowed – any caliber (except no .50BMG or magnums). No

SBR’s, no arm brace guns, no bump stocks, no set triggers, no binary triggers. All relays will be 10 rounds in 10 minutes (maximum).


For competitive shooters with Modern Sporting semi-autos, bring 2 magazines. The course of fire for competitive score will be 2 magazines of 5 rounds for best combined target score (@ 200yds) in the least time. Iron and optical sight classes will be shot. The 50yd and 100 yd firing will be slow fire 10 rounds from the bench for best score in the 10-minute timeframe. Open and optic sight divisions, and 2 Winners (iron & optical sights) each for 50yd and 100yd.


Juniors will shoot at 50 yds. using .22LR only rifles. We will have some novelty targets as well. The junior must be accompanied by a guardian. This is a non-competitive fun shoot.
