This match will be will be a one day format, comprised of 7 fun and challenging, new courses of fire. Expect the difficulty level to be greater than that of the typical local club match, challenging accomplished shooters while exposing the novice shooter to many of the skills required to become a top level shooter. You can expect a solid mix of pistol, shotgun and rifle targets with most stages requiring and/or allowing the use of all three firearms. Rifle targets will be out to 200 yards and shotgun slug targets out to 100 yards. One of the stages will require the use of a rifle sling. Shotgun will not require a sling for this match.
