Post-Christmas Carbine Clinic!

Did you unwrap a shiny new AR, SCAR or other Modern Sporting Rifle yesterday? Come out tomorrow and get some training with it!



Start time: Tomorrow, Saturday Dec. 27th, 10:00 AM

Expect to end around 3pm.

You will need a carbine, approximately 300 rounds of ammo, at least 2 magazines and a magazine pouch.

This will be a basic carbine operations class, topics will include deliberate loading, stance, grip, reloads and position shooting. There will be a portion devoted to accessories/carbine setup.

A reminder that our next big match is the first weekend of April. It is a 12 stage, 1.5 day all steel fest, sponsored by Berry’s Manufacturing. It will have dedicated ROs, 4 stages like our all steel Dixie Cup stage 8 (sans Dixie Cups), 4 stages of par-time steel, and 4 bays doubled of the complete Steel Challenge suite of stages.

Please share with your friends and clubs.

Thanks to our helpers

Big kudos to Jon Christensen and Denny Struss for designing our Dixie Cup 2014 stages. Jon is an original member of our club, and Denny a newcomer. Good job!

Also, special thanks to Bob Wolf, Brian Hess, and Eric and Linda Stidham, for building our shoot-off stage today.

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.
