USPSA 6 stage Special Classifier match this Saturday.

A classifier is a stage shot all over the world and set up identically. We use it to rank shooters. 4 scores are needed, and a 6 stage match is generally enough to get you classified. You do need a USPSA membership to be classified, but not to shoot the match.

Round count < 100
Stages are: CM99-10, 99-11, 99-23, 99-33, 06-03, and 06-06 or 08-02. Leaning towards CM08-02

Register: 0830
First shots: 0900

One of these requires strong hand shooting. If you want to work on that, Donovan Montross will handle it during Wed nights competition class.

Because we pay money to the USPSA for each stage in this match, the cost is $20.

Black Rifle Friday Carbine Match
4 stages of carbine fun.
0830 register, 0900 first shots

This is a great way to spend Black Friday doing something productive, fun, and low stress! What do you need?

About 150 rounds of .223 or similar (7.67x39 is fine). NO STEEL TIP (or green tip) bullets.

An AR-15, AK-47, or Mini-14, or similar.

2 20 round or larger magazines.

And a desire to have fun!

First timers welcome - come actually shoot that AR-15 you bought! You will be with talented and friendly experienced shooters happy to help you through your first match.

Reminder: Annual Club Meeting 6PM Thu

Currently planned for Berry’s Pavillion 6pm @ the Range. We will make adjustments if wind drives us away.
You can join/renew prior (5PM on).  The cost is $10.  Note this is a meeting of the members of the non-profit Southern Utah Practical Shooters. The main purpose is to elect officers and conduct other business as the quorum requires.

Current Officers:

Ken Nelson, President
Jeff Bailey, VP
Bob Wolf, Treasurer/Secretary
Jim Meade, Board Member
Chad Larsen, Board Member

All current board members and officers wish to run again, except for Chad Larsen. Chad has been elected President of the Dixie Desperado’s cowboy club. We wish Chad the best!¬† Fortunately, he has no plans to give up Practical Shooting!¬†¬† Glen Wong has expressed interest in running for that seat. And of course anybody in good standing is welcome to run for any office.¬† The by-laws do require board members to become USPSA RO certified within the year they serve.

Elected officers will then continue executing our three fold mission:

  • promote practical shooting
  • promote shooting education
  • support and defend the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution

After the meeting, the Competition Clinic scheduled will take place.
