    • 200 Yard Range

    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 200 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.

    Match rules abide closely by those set up by the International Multi-Gun Association (IMGA) or the United States Practical Shooting Association 

    (USPSA), which regulates some matches. Each of these organizations has guidelines and rules, but the ability to adapt them for specific matches is what makes 3-gun competition dynamic and exciting.

    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.

    Equipment

    • Rifles:
      Most serious competitors choose MSRs in .223 caliber with fairly short barrels in the 18- to 20-inch range and 10-round magazines. But any semi-auto that will handle larger magazines are normally permitted.
    • Shotguns:
      Any reliable autoloading or pump-action shotgun will work. For serious competition, it should have an extended magazine tube, a good set of sights and interchangeable chokes. Both shotshells and slugs are used in most 3-Gun matches.
    • Pistols:
      Most shooters use 9mm semi-autos, but the .38 Super and .40 S&W are also popular in some divisions.
    • Accessories:
      Each shooter needs a holster for the pistol and some sort of belt/pouch system to carry extra magazines and ammo.
    • Ammo requirement will vary by match. Contact rangemanager@wcgc.org prior to the match for the current month's ammo requirement.

    Five Stand Fun Shoot!

    Five Stand is very similar to Sporting Clays in that a wide variety of targets are thrown. No two five-stand events are exactly alike. There are five “stands” or stations to shoot from. There are 6 traps that throw targets in different presentations. Participants shoot in turn at each of the 5 stands and various combinations of targets are thrown from the traps. There is a menu card that will advise the shooter of the sequence of targets and whether its a single, report or true pair.

    Five Stand is a great way to get a Sporting Clays like experience in a small amount of space, with very little walking.

    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.

    Set up at 10:00a and match starts at 11:00a. All levels of shooters welcome!

    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.

    Falling Plates: Action Pistol Match takes place once a month on the 200 yard pistol range. Contestants compete against the clock to knock down six steel plates mounted on racks located at the 25 yard line. Competition starts 10 yards from the plates and progresses backward to distances of 15, 20 and 25 yards. We sometimes also shoot bowling pins at this match.

    As a new, or returning member, you need to complete a New Member Orientation before your membership is approved. 

    Orientations are conducted outdoors on the second and forth weekend of every month. The sessions are at 10:00 AM or 12:00 Noon each day (Saturday or Sunday). Prior to coming to the range, you are required to view a New Member Powerpoint Presentation that you will attest to viewing when you arrive. You are still required to demonstrate your ability to safely handle a firearm. After doing so, we will give you a tour of the facilities. 

    Please view presentation here: WCGC New Membership PowerPoint

    Bring a firearm with you to do the safe-handling demonstration. Do not bring any ammunition with you to the orientation. If you plan on shooting after the orientation, please leave all ammunition secured in your vehicle.

    This orientation is designed for new members (or those who have let their membership lapse). It covers the 4 basic rules of safe firearms handling, club and range specific rules/policies/procedures, and a hands on demonstration of proficiency of safe firearms handling. A tour of the facility and ranges is included.

    Mandated for all new members. Encouraged for all current members.

    Registration is required, as space is limited. Please email Ruthann@wcgc.org to reserve a space for Orientation.
