100 Yard Rifle Match/Clinic
Half Match - Half Clinic - All Fun!
What the program is about
The 100 Yard Match is held several times a year and is designed to make it easy for anyone to participate. It is part match, part clinic, and all fun as the more experienced shooters will take the time to show you the fundamentals and basic position shooting. If High Power rifle competition, vintage military, 600 to 1,000 yd matches are your goal, or you just want to improve your marksmanship skills this is the place to get started. It is a great way to get the new and younger shooters involved in a formal program.
Whether you are new to this type of shooting or an experienced "pro", this match is an easy, no pressure event where you can learn new skills or sharpen the skills you already have.
This match is open to anyone, and is designed with the "first timer" in mind. All you really need to participate is an appropriate rifle, at least 60 rounds of ammunition, something to eat and drink (recommend it be water to stay hydrated), and you're all set! If you have all the High Power gear (mat, scope, etc.) bring it along. If you don't that's okay too, we will try to squad you with someone who will share theirs. We intend to make participation fun and easy!
Need to improve your skills and learn position shooting? As you shoot the match, we give instruction on marksmanship fundamentals and basic position shooting. You get great instruction and then apply what you've learned when shooting the next stage.
Remember, it's not about winning; it's about improving your marksmanship skills and having fun at the same time. Whether you intend to become a high power rifle competitor or just want to shoot your rifle better, this event is for you!
The reduced course allows you to learn the fundamentals and work on technique. When our 600yd range is ready you'll have the skills to take it to the next step in shooting out to 600 yards in the new CCGCI High Power Rifle program.
Match entries: Match fee is $15 for non-members, $10 for CCGCI Members and $5 for juniors (20 and under), registration begins about 8am on the range the day of the match. You must be on the range by 8:30 for the safety briefing. We start shooting at 9am and plan to be done about 2:30pm. We are asking for you to pre-register so we have an idea as to how many to plan for.
An appropriate rifle ...
Basically, any bolt action or semi-automatic rifle that has iron sights and can be reloaded either via stripper clips or detachable magazine can be used in this event. This includes .22 rimfire rifles such as the Ruger 10-22 or Remington 741x. Scopes or other electronic sights are not allowed.
You are not limited to just those types of rifles allowed in normal High Power rifle competition, such as the AR-15, M1A (M14), M1 Garand, or Match Rifle. Surplus military bolt rifles such as the Mauser, British Lee-Enfields, or Mosin-Nagant are also allowed. We also have a number of other semi-automatics such as the M1 Carbine, FAL series, or Mini-14s.
Also recommend your rifle having a sling (personal recommendation if you need to purchase one, is to get a cotton web). Bipods will not be allowed to be used.
Again, as long as it can be reloaded via stripper clip or detachable magazine, has iron sights, and is safe to shoot you can participate with that rifle in this event. Safety is paramount though and the match director reserves the right to disallow rifles based on safety concerns. If you have a concern about a particular rifle, contact the Match Director. Sorry guys and gals, no .50BMGs allowed.
Course of fire for this match:
Stage 1 Ten Minute sighting in period
Stage 2 10 shots standing, slow fire
Stage 3 10 shots sitting, rapid fire
Stage 4 10 shots prone, rapid fire
Stage 5 20 shots prone, slow fire
This is called the 50 shot National Match Course.
It is a match, we do keep score, and we have cash prizes at the end of the match. One of the first things you'll learn is no one really cares about your score (other than you!). It's about having fun and improving your marksmanship skills. The prizes are part of the fun in that you never know who will win money (Match Director's famous "Inter-class split" strikes again!).
You will receive instruction on marksmanship fundamentals (there are only two - sight alignment and trigger control), as well as how to build a shooting position, use a rifle sling to aid accuracy, practice techniques, natural point of aim, and some of the mental aspects of shooting well.
and all FUN!
All you need is a rifle, at least 60 rounds of ammo, a good attitude, and be ready to have some fun.
If you have the following, it would be nice but you do not have to have them
Shooting glove (a work glove can work)
Be safe, no one cares how well you shoot but no one will shoot with you if you act in an unsafe manner!
