1st Sunday of each month 7:30 AM

  • Setup at 7:00 AM (voluntary)

  • Sign-up at 7:30 AM

  • 1st shot downrange at 8:00 AM

Shoot fee:

  • Members: $10 (includes NRA statistical reporting fee)

  • Guests: $10 + $10 guest fee (valid all day)

First Sunday NRA Bullseye (Precision) Pistol begins at 8:00 AM or as soon thereafter as possible. Please see the accompanying match program. Line breaks, cease-fires and target changes are coordinated with concurrent National Match (High Power) Rifle events.

Scores for Precision Pistol are reported to the NRA so that participants can receive an official classification card. There is an additional $10 guest fee for all non-members -- in line with club policies. Non-members are at liberty to use the range facilities for the rest of the day after the Pistol (and National Match Rifle) events conclude if accompanied by a member. Participants may fire as many or as few stages of the Precision Pistol event as they wish -- all for the same fee.

In accordance with NRA rules, scores for each 300-point aggregate will be reported -- regardless of whether the competitor fires with iron sights, red-dot sight, or a scope. Laser sights that project a beam onto the target are prohibited by the NRA and for eye-safety reasons at OVGC. If a competitor's gun has laser sights, they must be turned off during this shoot. Also, in accordance with NRA rules -- participants may shoot 2-handed for classification purposes until they reach the "Expert" Classification. Competitors must shoot 1-handed to achieve a Master or High-Master Classification.

In order to proceed efficiently in coordination with National Match Rifle, the sighters, slow, timed and rapid-fire stages will be fired in "blocks"-- as they do at some major tournaments -- instead of in sequence.

Please bring a clipboard (small, half-size clipboard is perfect) and a pen or pencil. Also bring your NRA number (membership card or magazine label).

For example: the course of fire for each half of the shoot will run as follows:

  1. 5-minute sighter period.

  2. Three back-to-back 10-minute slow fire strings = 30 minutes, total.

  3. Line break: Score targets; record scores; repair targets

  4. Three back-to-back timed fire strings

  5. Line break: score targets; record scores; repair targets

  6. Three back-to-back rapid-fire strings

  7. Line break: score targets; record scores; repair targets

  8. Line breaks may be adjusted, depending on the progress of National Match Rifle

Each participant has two target boards set up as in the "bullseye setup" images. Once a full-face timed & rapid center is stapled to the target board, it stays there for the duration of the match -- and repairs are made using a repair center & pasters. We have all needed supplies.

Eye & Ear Protection is Mandatory
