The next IWLA Shooting Sports event will be an Americas Rifle Challenge, held on Saturday February 1st. This match is open to members and their families as well as member sponsored guests.
Please show up on the rifle range between 0800 - 0815 in order to register and attend the safety brief at 0830.
As usual the cost of the match is $20. for members and $30. for non-members. Juniors are free.
This match was developed in conjunction with the NRA and Daniels Defense. It was designed to be shot with an AR-15 but you are welcome to use any rifle with a detachable magazine. The course of fire requires 100 rounds, so bring extra in case you have a misfire or if you want to shoot more than one relay.
We will start by shooting from behind a barricade at the 100 yard marker and move forward to the 7 yard line - engaging multiple targets, utilizing different shooting positions, and there will be mandatory magazine changes during the courses of fire.
You will need to bring your rifle in good working order, the proper ammunition for it and six magazines (preferred but if you don't have that many bring what you have). You will need a magazine pouch or some way to carry your mags (pockets work) and a sling is good to have but not required.
Red dots and scopes are permitted, and an empty chamber indicator is required, if you don't have one, we will give you one.
I will have water, but you are responsible for whatever food you might need. If there's time and space, you may shoot in more than one relay.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The rifle range is selling reloadable brass for $2 per pound. Brass is most available in common calibers (.9mm, .45, .223 etc.). Email inquiries about brass availability to email@example.com
Ed McBride has been making updates to the rifle/pistol range. He is planning excavations to improve the berms and range surface. Check the web site and Facebook before coming to the range for closings due to construction or activities.
The pistol range has been extended to 60 yards to accommodate longer range handguns. A right of way for power and access has also been established. Construction of a berm to separate the rifle/pistol ranges is complete.
