Blue RPC Practical Gallery Match

Blue RPC Practical Gallery Match - 29th August 2024
£ 30.00 30.0 GBP

Following the success of the first match in January, Blue Rifle & Pistol Club are holding another practical-style gallery rifle & pistol match at Cheylesmore Range Bay B in the evening (17:00-21:00) on Thursday 29th August 2024.

It will be run by seasoned international practical and gallery shooters, and will involve various sizes of IPSC targets on turning target frames at 5-25m in an IPSC Virginia Counts format (defined maximum round count on each stage with penalties for extra shots). Think of it as a three-way crossover between practical shooting, speed steels and gallery rifle. 

There are 7 stages of snap shooting, rapid reloads and disappearing targets. They have been carefully designed to be achievable for all but still test the best of shooters.

The stages will be released nearer the time.

The timings on these stages will vary slightly for the pistol-calibre rifle division to allow for the slower speeds of lever action rifles.

Ryan, our NRA-qualified Instructor and Range Safety Officer, will be on hand with additional ROs to ensure the shoot runs smoothly and for any coaching you require. So even if you are new to this type of shooting there will be plenty of guidance on hand!

Divisions include:

- .22 rifle
- Pistol-calibre rifle (e.g. 9mm, .38, .357, .44 etc)
- Long-barrel pistol
- Long-barrel revolver

A survey will go out shortly before the event to gauge which divisions people wish to shoot.

Club guns are available for hire for those who need them.

Even if static shooting is not usually your thing, this will be phenomenal fun and great practice for the practical shooters amongst you!

There is a (warm!) hospitality room with view of the range that has tea & coffee making facilities, as well as disabled-access toilet facilities. Snacks will be provided!

There will be opportunity to test and zero guns before the match starts.

There is space for up to 20 shooters but non-shooting guests are welcome!

We look forward to seeing you on the range!
