BRPC Practical Gallery Match
Blue Rifle & Pistol Club are holding a practical-style gallery rifle & pistol match at Chelyesmore Range Bay B in the evening (17:00-21:00) on Friday 26th January 2024. The range is enclosed and under cover so we are sheltered from any adverse weather!
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 and scoring method can be seen here:
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!
- .22 rifle
- Pistol-calibre rifle (e.g. 9mm, .38, .357, .44 etc)
- Long-barrel pistol
- Long-barrel revolver
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!
Come down for some post-Christmas cheer and we look forward to seeing you on the range!
