Shooting Disciplines

MRPC CURRENTLY OFFERS THE FOLLOWING SHOOTING DISCIPLINES.

Everyone is invited to participate, just click on the Director's email and he will get you lined out before the next practice.

Check the calendar for any last minute schedule changes.

SOUTHERN OREGON PRACTICAL SHOOTER ASSOCIATION


SOPSA is the combined action shooting disciplines branch of the Medford RIfle & Pistol Club. It shares common equipment between the IDPA/USPSA/Multi-Gun/Speed Steel disciplines and maintains the competition ranges located at the back gate of the The Jackson County Sports Park Shooting Complex in White City, Oregon.

Thursday night practice is a combination practice of USPSA/IDPA with occasional Multi-Gun activities thrown in and is held at the competition range with the exception of Winter when it is moved to the MRPC indoor range on Vilas Rd.

FULLBORE RIFLE


Fullbore target rifle (TR) is a distinctively British and Commonwealth of Nations shooting discipline that evolved from Service rifle (SR) shooting in the late 1960s, and is governed in the UK by the rules of the National Rifle Association, UK (NRA).

Similar rules are used in several Commonwealth countries, but the issue in 2009 of the rule book of the International Confederation of Fullbore Rifle Associations (ICFRA) has provided an alternative basis for the administration of the sport.

Modern target rifles are extremely accurate, and have ‘iron’ aperture sights which are fully adjustable for elevation and windage. To level the playing field as much as possible without stifling progress, and to make it possible for riflemen of all budgets to compete seriously, the rifle or all its component parts must be ‘readily available in quantity’. This stipulation also keeps faith with the longstanding traditions of the NRA that the rifles used in competition should be of a type that, if necessary, could be readily used for homeland defense.

Fullbore Target Rifle involves prone position single shot precision shooting using ‘iron’ aperture sights at ’round bull’ targets at distances from 300 to 1000 yards, with each shot being carefully scored and analysed.

The usual caliber used is 7.62×51 NATO. In the UK the ‘home’ of target rifle shooting (and match rifle competition) is the NRA’s extensive ranges at Bisley, Surrey. The worldwide influence of Bisley on the sport is illustrated best by the South African terminology, where Target Rifle is called “Bisley Shooting”, the governing body is the South African Bisley Union (SABU) and almost any target shooting competition is known as a “Bisley”.

Fullbore Target Rifle Shooting has been established formally in the United States and is administered by the National Rifle Association of America NRA Annual National Championship is currently held during September at the Wittington Center, Raton, NM.

BULLSEYE PISTOL


The MRPC Rimfire Bullseye Group shoots the 50’ Gallery Course every Monday Night at the Club’s Indoor

Pistol Range on Vilas Road. All Club Members are welcome to join. Shooters gather to get ready about 7pm, with Shooting starting at 7:30 pm sharp. Each of the 9 targets takes 10 rounds per target, and the practice stops about 8:30pm.

Equipment Needed: A 22 LR Pistol, 90 rounds of ammunition, sight and hearing Protection. A small spotting Scope or binocular are helpful, if you have one. Cost is $1 for targets, lights and heat.

NRA Precision Pistol (aka BULLSEYE) is the oldest pistol competition in the United States. It started by combining Civilian Shooters with 22LR Rimfire pistols, Police Shooters with 38 Caliber Pistols, and Military Shooters with 45ACP Pistols. A formal NRA match consists of 9 targets in each of 3 calibers for a total point count of “2700” points. The rules have changed over the years so that formal “Bullseye” can be shot with only two different guns. The National Championship is shot every year in July at Camp Perry, Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie.

At MRPC, every Monday night we shoot the 9 targets of the Rimfire stage. Each shooter contributes $1 to reimburse the club for targets. Each nightly practice requires 90-rounds of ammunition. This allows shooters weekly to judge improvements in their shooting skills.

The Course of Fire starts with 3 Slow fire targets (10 minutes per string), followed by 1 Timed fire target (two 5-shot strings, 20 seconds per string), then 1 Rapid fire target (two 5-shot strings, 10 seconds per string), then two more Timed fire targets, followed by two more Rapid Fire Targets.

The goal is for each shooter to develop a perfect sight picture and a perfect trigger pull to attain the highest point score.

To help change things up; periodically the group holds Matches. These are often a combination of shooting 2 or 3 standard Courses of Fire one after another. Sometimes the groups shoots a “poker hand” before practice to warm up. The group also shoots Center-Fire Pistols after the regular rimfire practices prior to the Christmas Holiday. This is in conjunction with the groups sponsoring of a Christmas Toy Drive. On those nights, the fee to shoot the extra center-fire targets is only a Christmas Toy for a needy child.

PRACTICAL RIFLE

The goal of practical rifle is to learn and apply the skill-sets for making hits on target “at speed” in the < 300 yard range with occasional 600 yard shooting, using a carbine rifle.

Learning to run a secondary (pistol) for CQB transitions is emphasized.

Practice sessions are usually no more than 50 rounds of carbine and 50 rounds of pistol, have more with you.

Why Aren’t You Shooting More?

 

I’m often surprised when a fellow member tells me…..

“I haven’t used the club this year as planned and I’m not renewing my membership”

Is it because………

You don’t want to get the 25% discount on next year’s Club Memberships? or

You lost your gun and it feels funny pointing your finger at the target and yelling BANG! or

You moved next door to the Police Station, and now you feel much safer? or

You’ve developed a new “dry-fire” training program that allows you to be a crack shot, without ammo? or

You became a Vegetarian, so you gave up hunting? or

You used up all your bullets on your first trip to the range, and haven’t bought more this year? or

You forgot the combination to your new gun safe, and can’t get your gun out? or

Did your dog bury your gun in the backyard? or

You found you had an allergy to the Blue Paint that we used on the building? or

Your Security FOB for the Club’s front door wore a hole in your pocket? or

You can’t stand to think of the Security Director watching you while you shoot? or

You haven’t yet found your second 3M foam rubber earplug?

You came to shoot, and everyone left?  Maybe it’s the mouthwash!

You won the lottery and now have a body guard?

 

Except for the last one

I’m glad it’s none of those reasons.

Here’s an idea how to make your practice time better

Plan a short practice,

15- 30 minutes is often adequate

Plan on shooting

50 rounds or less

Establish a goal to your practice

“to put all your shots in a certain size circle”

Come to the range with a plan

10 shots at 5 yards to warm up,

10 shots from 7yds, then 10 yards.

Two quick 5-shot strings, < 15 seconds each,

10 Slow shots from 10 yards making each one count
