Stars, Stripes and Silhouettes! July1st, 1:00 pm Concord, Ca
Our monthly Diablo Rod and Gun Club Air Gun Silhouette match is July 1st, Sunday at 1:00 PM in Concord at the Action Pistol Range.
Come out and enjoy some Silhouette shooting. Weather will be warm and sunny.
Additional holiday shooting opportunities include July 4th, where we’ll open the MPR for Air Gun shooting.
We’re opening the range early at 10:30 AM for practice. We welcome airguns up to & including .25 cal during the open practice, but not for competition.
During the match, Rifles are limited to 20 fpe or less and Pistols are 12 fpe or less. Calibers permitted are .177, .20 and .22 only. No .25 caliber. Lead pellets only. No BBs, darts or plastic tipped or metal coated pellets. All spectators and shooters are required to wear safety glasses. Hearing protection is optional and recommended.
Cost is $10.00 for members and $15.00 for Guests. Shooters under the age of 18 accompanied by an adult shoot free.
We typically run two Relay’s so you can shoot rifle in one relay and pistol or other rifle or pistol class in another. You can even shoot a re-fire, which is a second round of the same class. Our targets are custom built, one-of-a-kind string resettable silhouettes so the matches tend to go pretty quickly.
Have fun and keep your rifle and pistol shooting skills sharp with air gun silhouette. Hope to see you there for a great day of shooting.
All shooters must sign the USI liability waiver form located on line here prior to shooting a match at USI:
It is free, signed on line and is a one time procedure. After signing the waiver, all shooters are required to obtain a USI "Blue Card" available free at the club house.
You must have your Blue card with you. USI is now charging a $5.00 replacement fee. I suggest you take a picture of it and store it in your mobile device.
All FT and Air Gun Silhouette events are listed on the Diablo Rod and Gun Club calendar here:
Wow, a windy day, one that blew the guns off of the bank of animals as you try to bring it to bear. Needless to say, scores were lower than our excellent markmen/markspersons normally score. Possible 40 targets, 2 RElays.
That we hit any targets seemed remarkable!
