Continues for 2023
We have some exciting new changes that we think everyone will like. First off we are
adopting the NRA Classification system. This will give you a personal challenge and goals to set against yourself. This is how it works...Your first shoot of the year you will be unclassified.
Ounce you finish the shoot and get your score you will then be placed into a class.
Here are the classes:
Class: B A AA AAA Master
Score: 0-14 15-21 22-28 29-34 35-40
For example...say I scored 24 on my first shoot of the year; I would then be classified as a AA Shooter. Ounce you are classified you can move up to the next class by shooting in a higher class twice in one year.
For example...I'm a AA Shooter and manage to shoot a 29 and a 31, now I'm reclassified to a AAA shooter. Another example is I'm a AA shooter and i score 29 witch is AAA and a score of 36 witch is a Masterscore, I will move up to AAA. However...if I shot two master scores I will move from AA straight to Masterclassification.
You can be moved down a class if you score lower than your class three times in a row. Hopefully this makes sense. If not ask and ill try to explain better. On your first shoot you will be charged an extra $2 for a score classification book. This book will be yours and we will fill in your scores for keeping track of your classifications. We are hoping that other clubs and or gun shops like REC Guns will pick these shoots up so that we can recognize each others scores and give everyone more of a chances to move up.
The next change is that we will have two full rows of targets. Targets will also be set up at 50, 100, 150, and 200 yards.
So when you sit down to shoot, you will shoot all 10 targets before switching with your partner. Only thing is we will still be stopping you after your first five targets with the same four minutes. Then giving you the same 3 minutes for last five targets. We will also be giving a 10 or 15 sec. "Ready" command before the fire command.
Youth classes will be the same, but we broke the kids into age groups:
Kids age 9 and under- Youth 1= Shoot chickens from bench.
Kids 10-12 is Youth 2= allowed to shoot Chickens using mono pole
Kids 13-16 is youth 3= Shoot chickens offhand only (unless medical issue or physical impairment)
Also adults are now required to shoot chickens offhand (unless medical issue or physical impairment)
No slings, butthooks, palm rest are permitted for offhand shoot aid.
5 and 10 pins will be awarded the same as before.
There will be a match winner pin awarded to the overall match winner adult and youth winner.
The class winners will be recognized only.
