The Calgary Rifle and Pistol Club is pleased to invite you to our series of indoor Rifle matches starting in January 2017. The intent of these matches is to provide an opportunity for smallbore rifle shooters to participate in regularly scheduled competitions. The entry fees have been kept to an absolute minimum and therefore, there will be no prizes other than bragging rights.
The course of fire will be 2 X 60 shot matches fired from the prone position at 25m. The first match will be 60 shots with Iron Sights, and the second match will be 60 shots with Any Sights, meaning scopes may be used, or you may stick with iron sights – your choice.
Although these are prone matches, we will accommodate anyone wishing to shoot 3-Position.
PLEAE NOTE: As range space is limited to one relay, we would ask that you call or email to reserve a spot as we anticipate a good turnout this season.
For additional info or to reserve your position, contact Jeff at (403) 238-2651 or via email, email@example.com.
