Default Fun Action Handgun and 3 gun match

We will be holding out monthly action pistol and 3-gun match this Saturday (Jan 12) at Burro Canyon, starting at 9 AM. This is great chance to try out competition action shooting in a no pressure environment. We run it like a match - commands, procedures, safety, timer, etc but it is just for fun. It is fun, but not really for a hardcore, established competitor. It is, however, great for someone to test the water, get an insight into matches and how they are run or just to have fun shooting from the holster, some movement and reactive targets. After the match, we have the private range all day so you can stay and shoot afterwards, too.

Check in with us (The No Name Pistol Club) at the first private range on the right as you enter, across from the range office. No need to check in with the range. Cost is $35 for the range rental all day and targets.

I usually bring 100-150 rounds of handgun ammo, 40 rounds of rifle ammo (though 20 will usually suffice,) and 25 rounds of shotgun ammo. If you need a rifle or shotgun for the 3-gun, bring .223 and/or 12 GA birdshot. Buckshot tears up our knockdown targets too badly.

From our match organizer:

We will be shooting at Burro Canyon this Saturday, and it looks like the weather will cooperate to let us use our steel targets. We do have a rain cover to put up for protection of the rifle rack if needed, but you might want to bring rain gear. Expect at least two pistol stages and one three gun stage, including clays on the fly, so bring suitable bird shot. See you at the range!

Allen says he will be there no matter the weather, and we can use steel targets hopefully, so the plate rack may come out.

Accuweather says about an hour or less of morning rain then dry for Azusa.

It was a fun shoot. We had a couple guys from CalGuns show up and shoot, along with one son. My niece and her fiancÚ showed up as first timers too. The rainheld off pretty well until we started the 3 gun, but most soldiered through it. All the first timers had a ball and all will be back! With the rain, we shot the plate rack and poppers in every stage and no paper/cardboard targets this month.
