America's Rifle Challenge

Our next IWLA Shooting Sports event will be an America’s Rifle Challenge, on Saturday, February 1st, 2020. Please show up at the rifle range between 0815 and 0830 in order to register and attend the safety brief at 0845. We will go hot at 0900. If you don't attend the safety brief - you may not shoot the match. Although this match was developed to be shot with an AR15, you can use any rifle with a detachable magazine. Bring your firearm in good working condition and at least 6 magazines (if you don't have 6 bring what you have), you will need 125 rounds of the proper ammunition for your gun, a way to carry your mags, and a sling is helpful. Optics are allowed. Of course, eye and ear protection is required and bring food and water if you think you will need it. These matches typically run until about noon.

America's Rifle Challenge (ARC) is a new recreational training event that's meant to prove to dedicated 2nd Amendment supporters and newbies alike that the "AR" in "AR-15" stands for "America's Rifle."

The ARC offers three different types of events: training events, basic matches and advanced matches. Each allows participants to experience shooting from multiple defensive firing positions. The basic matches are shot at a slower pace to allow new competitors to get comfortable with their firearms, while the advanced matches are timed, with competitors moving through multiple firing points and reloading against the clock. ARC isn't just limited to AR-15s either; any semi-automatic detachable magazine-fed rifle can be used.

For most events, you'll just need your rifle, two detachable magazines, magazine carrier, sling, eye and ear protection and ammo.
