NRA 3-GUN SPORT RIFLE, PISTOL AND SHOTGUN MATCH:


WHERE:



Southwest Gun Club’s McComb Range facility. It is 6 miles East of McComb, MS on US Highway 98 East. When driving from McComb, drive East on US98 until you see the Homestead turnoff sign. Drive 2 miles further and the entrance to the range is on the North side of the road. If driving from Tylertown, MS, drive past the Bogue Chitto River Park and look for a roadside market on the right. The range road is 2.2 miles past the store, on the right. The name of the range road is Edna Drive.



WHEN:



Sign up time 8:30AM, Start time 9AM. 10/16/2021



WHAT:



An informal rifle, pistol and shotgun tournament designed to take advantage of the rapid fire capabilities of sporting rifles, handguns and shotguns.



FIREARMS:



Any safe .22 long rifle caliber rifle with iron sights or telescope, will be allowed. No laser sights. Maximum weight of rifles with sights is 8.5 pounds.



Any safe .22 long rifle caliber pistol or revolver with iron sights.

Any safe repeating shotgun of 12, 16 or 20 gauge that holds 5 shots is eligible.



AMMUNITION:



Any safe .22 RF Long Rifle cartridges may be used. No .22 Winchester Magnum, .22 W.R.F. or .17 RF ammo allowed. No tracer ammunition allowed.



Shotgun shells shall have a maximum load of 3 drams with 1-1/8 ounces of shot. Shot size will be no larger than 7-1/2.







SAFETY EQUIPMENT:



Eye and hearing protection for Adult shooters is highly recommended. Eye and hearing protection for Junior shooters is mandatory.



COURSE OF FIRE:



Sight in period will be provided at 20 yards, before the event begins.



The distance to the targets with all firearms will be 20 yards.



6 rounds will be loaded in the rifle and pistol and the firearms will be spotted on the table, in a loaded and ready condition with the safety on.



5 rounds will be loaded in the shotgun and the firearm will be spotted on the table on the far right, with the safety on.



NOTE: Each table will have a safety officer standing by to be sure the loaded firearms are not interfered with by a spectator.



Starting with the pistol, the shooter is given the command "Stand ready". On the sound of the buzzer, the shooter will pick up the pistol and shoot at the 6 plates from left to right. If a plate is missed, the shooter will engage the next plate to the right.



When all 6 shots with the pistol are fired, the shooter will make the pistol safe and move to the right of the table and pick up the rifle and engage the second rack of plates from left to right. If a plate is missed, the shooter will engage the next plate to the right.



When all 6 shots with the rifle are fired, the shooter will make the rifle safe and move to the right of the table and pick up the shotgun and engage the third rack of plates from left to right. If a plate is missed, the shooter will engage the next plate to the right.



When all 5 shots with the shotgun are fired, the shooter will make the shotgun safe.



NOTE: If a shooter misses a plate and shoots at it a second time, the second shot will be considered a miss

even if it hits the plate.




All rifle, pistol and shotgun shooting will be done standing with no part of the body touching the table. Slings may not be used during the rifle stage.



All pistol shooting may be done one or two handed.



SCORING:



The shooter with the most hits will be the winner. Ties will be broken with the fastest time. The fastest time will be used as an "X" count.



With the speed this event is fired in, we should be able to shoot several courses of fire. The number of courses fired will depend on the number of shooters attending and time considerations. Be prepared to shoot this course of fire multiple times.



I think this will be an excellent fun event. It will emphasize speed with accuracy.



Our club has 5- Ruger 10/22 rifles set up with 2.5x10x42mm Tasco scopes. We also have 5-Ruger Mark III 5.5” .22 LR target pistols. We also have two Remington 11-87 - 20 guage shotguns and a Remington 1100 12 gauge shotgun for club member's use. Southwest Gun Club Junior Members, in our training program, will be issued .22 RF ammo and 12&20 gauge shotgun ammo free of charge, furnished by The Youth Sport Shooting Alliance.



Senior members will have the following ammo available for purchase.

Winchester .22 Standard Velocity $3.00 per box of 50

12 or 20 ga trap shotgun shells $.30 per round

No checks for ammo purchases, cash only

Fees: $10 for Seniors and $5 for Juniors.



PLEASE LET THE SECRETARY KNOW IF YOU NEED TO BORROW A PISTOL, RIFLE OR SHOTGUN.

If the match fee for Seniors is $10 and Juniors is $5, how much for the rest of the people?

What are the age limits for Seniors and Juniors?
