Glen Beattie – Chairman
CMP #25310—NRA #B6449
Download the 2017 schedule or see the calendar below for scheduled match dates which include:
- Springfield/Vintage rifle
- F Class High Power Rifle
Please note that the shoots at NSSA are for entertainment only. NO prizes, badges, or trophies are awarded at NSSA events.
If you are interested in getting involved, but don’t own a qualifying rifle, NSSA has two Bushmaster XM-15 E2S A2 with 20” barrels available for match use, free of charge. 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.)
