Default Cuyama 600, 1000 yd & Palma matches Jan 18 & 19 (2 matches Saturday)

It looks I will be in town this month so I'll drive up early Saturday morning and probably camp overnight for shooting on Saturday and Sunday morning.

We are now an electronic target range. The club utilizes ShotMarker targets. These targets eliminate the need for manning the pits and result in dramatically reduced match times. The targets are pretty sweet and allow you to focus hard on shooting and improving for the next match.

Saturday morning at 0800 - 600 yd Mid Range, 60 Shots

Saturday afternoon at 12:00 - 800 - 1,000 yd LR Palma, 45 Shots

Sunday morning at 0800 - 1,000 yd Long Range, 40 Shots


We’ll try and wrap up squadding a few minutes prior to the start of the match. There’s no need to pre-register. Everyone will get a chance to shoot.


All of our matches are NRA approved and open to the public. Cost is $20 per match (for non-members) and includes $4.50 fee for score submittal to NRA. $5 discount for club members. NRA membership is not required to participate or to earn an NRA classification.


All are welcome to arrive Friday or Saturday and can camp on the property. If you are into running water there’s the Buckhorn Inn in New Cuyama and a couple of places in Taft. Both are about a 30 minute drive from the range.

Squadding at 8:00 AM so come dressed for cold weather. Bring food, drinks and a chair to relax in.

The easiest way to find the range is to Google "TriCounty Rifle Range, Maricopa CA" and you'll get directions right there. The range is located off of Hwy 33 about 3 miles south of the 33 and 166 junction. You can drive up Highway 33 from Ojai. Or you can drive up I-5 to Frazier Park Road, take it to Lockwood Valley Road to Hwy 33. Look for a green Palma sign on the east side of 33 at the Foothill Rd intersection. Turn into the field and drive straight back to our shade structure. Please be mindful of the fields as they may be planted (stay on the well worn path).


Bring all your safety equipment and a shooting mat, (although people will be glad to share if necessary). A good 100 yard zero (Look on JBM Ballistics to build a drop chart for the range that you are shooting. Use 100 yard increments out to 1,000 yards, The elevation at the range is 2,650 feet above sea level)

Yeah, this is Calguns, where everyone supposedly "wants" to shoot the mythical one-thousand-yards, but are too afraid to even take the first step.

correct sir

A good rifle, a good load, and a little math will get you to 1000 yards.

Good wind reading will get you better than a 180 score

Frank, I’m going to start getting back to F-Class once I’m recovered (I got t-boned in my Mustang a few weeks ago). Hopefully see you all again soon!

Thank you guys for pushing us to get out there. Speaking for myself, I know I needed a bit of encouragement to get out and start shooting. My rifle is not yet ready, but my goal is to at least show up to observe and learn this year. I'll keeping checking back in this section regularly for updates, and I hope other newbies like me do too.

My rifle wasn't ready either but it was in a shootable condition with load work up done. Four years later the only thing left on the rifle that is stock is the action and bolt, everything else has been replaced a little at a time

It connects by bluetooth to your phone they'll have it on the firing line, no need to download anything.

Unfortunately, I have to fly to New Zealand on Sunday so I won't make the match.

Nice! Yes, E-targets are the greatest thing for simplifying matches.

No more 20 minute delays to change the target crew at the butts between relays. Everyone gets to socialize more on the line.

No more pasting new centers on the targets

No more trying to see the 22 caliber holes that hit the line with 60 year old eyes!
