INDOOR CENTER FIRE PISTOL AND 22 CAL PISTOL LEAGUES

 

THE 2018 PISTOL LEAGUE WILL BEGIN THE WEEK OF JAN 15, 2018. AS HAS BEEN THE PROCEDURE IN THE PAST THE CLUB WILL BE OPEN ON MONDAY’S, WEDNESDAYS AND FRIDAYS AT 7:00. FIRING CAN BE DONE ON ANY OR ALL OF THESE NIGHTS AS NEEDED BY THE COMPETITOR. THE FIRST WEEK OF THE LEAGUE IS A SIGHT-IN/PRACTICE/BANK WEEK. SHOOTERS CAN DO ANY OF THESE BUT IF THEY CHOOSE TO POST A BANK SCORE, IT MUST BE DECLARED AS SUCH BEFORE FIRING. STARTING THE WEEK OF JAN 16, 2018 WILL BE THE OFFICIAL START OF THE LEAGUE. WE WILL DO AS IN THE PAST, THE FIRST 4 WEEKS OF THE LEAGUE WILL BE USED TO FIGURE AN AVERAGE OF THE SHOOTER AND AFTER THAT IS FIGURED THE TEAMS WILL BE PICKED USING THOSE AVERAGES. WE WILL THEN TAKE THOSE SCORES AND USE THEM FOR THE FIRST 4 WEEKS OF COMPETITION. WIN / LOSS RECORDS WILL BE POSTED.  SHOOTERS CAN POST AS MANY BANK SCORES AS THEY WISH. IF SHOOTERS ARE WAITING TO FIRE LEAGUE SCORES, THE BANK SHOOTER MUST WAIT UNTIL ALL COMPETITORS FIRING WEEKLY SCORES ARE DONE BEFORE FIRING BANK SCORES.

THE COST THIS YEAR WILL BE $10.00 PER GUN, $10.00 FOR .22 AND $10.00 FOR CENTER FIRE.  THE NIGHTLY FEE’S FOR THE LEAGUE WILL BE $4.00 PER MATCH AND $2.00 FOR A SET OF PRACTICE TARGETS. THE REPORT MUST BE FILLED OUT AFTER THE MATCH IS FIRED AND SCORED. THE BANK SCORE AND MATCH SCORES WILL ONLY BE POSTED BY THE SHOOTER. PRACTICE SCORES SHALL NOT BE POSTED ON THE SCORE SHEET. ALL MONEY MUST BE PLACED INTO THE ENVELOPE AT THE DESK.

THE LEAGUE WILL RUN 13 WEEKS DUE TO THE FIRST WEEK BEING THE SIGHT-IN/PRACTICE/BANK WEEK. THE BANQUET WILL BE THE WEEK AFTER THE LEAGUE IS COMPLETE, IF IT CAN BE SCHEDULED. THE DEFINITE DATE WILL BE POSTED ALONG WITH THE MENU AND COST FOR GUESTS. IF THERE ANY SUGGESTION TO A VENUE TO HAVE THE BANQUET, OTHER THAN THE SUMMIT COUNTRY CLUB, LET JEFF KNOW AND WE WILL LOOK IN IT.

LASTLY, WE WANT ALL COMPETITORS TO HAVE FUN BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER SAFETY FIRST, LAST AND ALWAYS! WE HAVE A GREAT RECORD IN THIS AND WE MUST KEEP IT THAT WAY. EMPTY CHAMBER INDICATORS WILL BE USED IN ALL GUN ON THE FIRING LINE, THIS CAN BE AS SIMPLE AS A LENGTH OF WEEDEATER STRING OR A WIRE TIE, BUT NO ONE WILL GO DOWN RANGE UNTIL ALL GUNS ARE CHECKED AND DECLARED SAFE! REMEMBER MUZZLES MUST BE POINTED DOWN RANGE AT ALL TIMES, AND AFTER FIRING IS COMPLETED MUST BE BOXED OR HAVE AN EMPTY CHAMBER INDICATOR INSTALLED IN THEM.       JEFF @ 814-886-4479

22 LR RIMFIRE RIFLE BENCH REST     100 YD MATCH

The 2018 South Fork Rile Club .22 Bench rest Rifle League will start on 4 June 2018. The league will fire on Monday evenings and run for 12 weeks. The last league night will be 20 August and the “FUN SHOOT” will be fired on the next Monday, 27 August. As usual there will be food and drink at the club on this night after the shoot.

There will be no Bank Week shooting prior to the starting of the league as has been done in the past. As has been the process, the shooter must fire 12 matches to earn an average. Those can be regular weekly matches, bank scores, or if needed, make up scores. After the 12 matches are fired, the 2 lower scores are thrown out and the 10 left will comprise the average for the league. The cost of a match, bank, or make up is $5.00 per match.

For the 2018 season the Classifications are the same as 2017. Unlimited, Target, and Factory. The definitions for these classes are:

Unlimited – This class will include all Custom Built Rifles and all-purpose built factory bench rest rifles, such as Anschutz etc. Custom Rifles are rifles that have had match barrels placed on the actions with or without tuners and in a bench rest stock.

Target – This classification will include rifles that are target grade rifles, such as Remington 40x, Winchester 52, Cooper, and Anshutz Rifles that are not already classified as Unlimited. The rifles must not have tuners or bench rest stocks. Forend adapters on stocks to fit front rest and improved triggers are acceptable. Rifles must have a working safety.

Factory – For a rifle to compete in this class, they must have a factory stock, factory barrel, no attached tuner (magnetic tuner accepted). Improved triggers are acceptable, but the rifle must have a working safety.

In all classifications, the rifle can be supported in a Bench rest Front Rest, and the butt must be supported on a sand bag. No one piece rests are approved and rear supports that are attached to the stock are not legal.

A shooter can fire multiple classes if he or she chooses but the classification of the rifle must be noted on the score sheet.

Safety is the first and most important issue in any club function. As has been the practice in the past, all shooters must not be seated at the firing point when people are down range. Empty chamber indicators must be installed and if the bolt is removable, it must be out of the rifle.

Any further information pertaining to the .22 Bench Rest League will be posted on the Club Website.

We hope to see everyone at the range!!
