NSSA will host an AR15 challenge on Sunday Sept 13th on the West Range.
The AR 15 challenge will test your shooting skills using your AR15 at 7 different stages in various different positions: Standing, kneeling, prone strong arm and weak arm.
2 magazines for some of the stages. You will need at least 68 rounds of ammunition.
You may use any AR style firearm and any sight but you may not change sights or the firearm during completion. If we have poor weather we will not require prone shooting – an alternate position will be decided.
Please email email@example.com to register for the event.
The cost will be $20 .00 to shoot the challenge.
Sign in starts at 9am, shooting begins at 10am. Any shooters not shooting at the time will be required to help target changes and scoring.
Ten members participated in this week’s NRA High-Powered Rifle Match. Below are a few photos of the event. Our next event will be an F-Class match on September 13th. We hope to see you there.
The term “Off-hand” is often misunderstood as shooting with the weak hand. It actually means shooting while standing with the firearm supported only with the hands.
Sitting rapid-fire at 200 yards. 60 seconds to fire 10 rounds, with a magazine change after the first 2 rounds. (The magazines are loaded 2 rounds and 8 rounds.) It’s a challenge to get off all ten rounds in 60 seconds and still display excellent marksmanship…
Prone rapid-fire at 300 yards. This is what separates the men from the boys and the women from the girls. The rifle is hand-held (no mechanical rests) and uses open sights (no scopes). And this is over a distance of three football fields The people who can do the proficiently are among the best rifle marksmen around. We’re very fortunate that our NSSA membership includes several of them, as evidenced by the results of the 2015 Camp Perry CMP matches last month.
This coming Sunday Northside will hold our monthly NRA High Power Rifle Match, with open sights at 200 yards and 300 yards.
The course of fire is 8 rounds of sighters and 50 rounds for score, for a total of 58 rounds for the day. Sign up is at 8:30 and the match starts at 9:00.
As always this event is open to the public. Also, If you don’t own a qualifying rifle, NSSA has two Bushmaster XM-15 E2S A2 with 20” barrels available for match use, for free. The club also has magazines, slings, empty-chamber indicators, and a ground mat that can be used during the matches. This is an excellent way to give the sport a try for just the cost of ammunition. (Note: Only factory ammunition can be used with the club rifles—no reloads.)
I hope you can join us on Sunday.
NSSA’s .22 caliber rim-fire match will be held this coming Sunday, August 9th.
Although it is not a registered CMP match, it is known as one of the more entertaining and challenging events on the NSSA CMP schedule. Check out the chart below to get an idea of the amount of drop shooters must compensate for.
We invite you to come out and join in the fun with us. This event is open to the public. Non members are welcome!
