RIFLE

Winchester Canyon Gun Club:  Rifle Days and Hours

For Instruction at Winchester Canyon Gun Club, Please contact Mike Foster RangeManager@wcgc.org or Phone # 805-964-5606

For dates and times, see Our Events Calendar Below!


3-Gun Practice Match are held on the first Sunday of each month. Competitors use three different firearms -- a modern sporting rifle (MSR), that is, a rifle built on an AR-platform; a pistol; and a shotgun. Matches generally involve courses where the shooter must move through different stages and engage targets in a variety of different positions. Each stage will generally require the use of different firearms and require the shooter to transition between them.

The targets might include clay pigeons, cardboard silhouettes, steel targets of varying sizes and anything else the match organizer designates as a target. Distances of the targets might vary from 1 yard to 500 yards or anything in between. The shooter who hits the most targets -- and avoids certain "no shoot" ones -- in the least amount of time is the winner.

Just as it is with the practical pistol matches, 3-gun simulates combat or self-defense situations. A stage provides a certain scenario for using one or more of the guns in a specific sequence. Each stage is each match will usually be different than any you've shot before.


SMALL BORE DEWAR RIFLE MATCH Consists of a total of 40 rounds for record, from the Prone position, unlimited sighters, 20 rounds at 50 yards, and 20 at 100 yards, using standard NRA paper targets. Time limit is 25 minutes at each stage. You can use any 22 rifle with any sight to compete. Currently not being offered. If interested is running this event, please contact Mike Foster.

HIGH POWER RIFLE NATIONAL MATCH COURSE, 200 YARDS are no longer held at WCGC.
Contact Mike Foster if you would be interested in running 200 yard matches.

600 YARD HIGH POWER RIFLE MATCHES are no longer held at WCGC.

RUNNING DEER is a rifle shooting event using standard hunting rifles. This event is at the 100yd rifle range - a standard 100yd target is pulled by a mechanical device at about 10 MPH along a 40yd track, at the 100yd impact area, the shooter fires 5 shots from the 100yd firing line as the target is pulled. The shooter reloads 5 rounds and the target is returned in the opposite direction with the shooter firing another 5 shots at the same target. The object is to score as high as possible with the 10 shots in the target. This event usually held monthly, weather permitting. Currently not being offered. If interested is running this event, please contact Mike Foster.

COWBOY ACTION SHOOTING MATCHES are held once a month on the 200 yard range forward of the firing line and out to the 75 yard berm on the left hand side of the range. Targets are steel gongs and paper. The match is carried out under the guidelines of the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS), with no ethnic or racial connotations implied or permitted. These matches portray the spirit of the Old West through costumes and firearms of a bygone era. Currently not being offered. If interested is running this event, please contact Mike Foster.

MUZZLE LOADING BLACK POWDER RIFLE AND PISTOL MATCHES take place once a month on the 200 yard rifle range. Competition is from the firing line out to 100 yards and 200 yards. Targets are steel gongs, with paper targets, located between 50 and 200 yards. Safe handling of old style muzzle loading arms and period dress and costumes are promoted.

Matches are conducted by the Ranger Officer using range commands for each course of fire. Coaching and special consideration are afforded new shooters to the game, by veteran competitors and the Range Officer. All rifle matches are governed by the Rules and Regulations of The National Rifle Association of America, with top priority given to basic safety rules in accordance with the NRA, and Winchester Canyon Gun Club.

If you are interested in rifle shooting, don't hesitate. Come on out, and you will have, at your disposal, any number of veteran competitive shooters, who are eager to help, and will go to great lengths to get you on your way to becoming competitive yourself. You will be surprised how quickly you will progress, and I know you will find that competitive shooters are a great bunch, with which to shoot and socialize. And, before you know, you'll be investing in your new found sport with the likes of maybe a new match rifle, sling, mat, spotting scope, and a host of related accessories which can greatly enhance your shooting ability.
