Northland Sportsmen’s Club has started a new type of competitive shooting. Defensive Sport Shooting is aimed at encouraging all men and women, with or without their CPL, to come out and familiarize themselves with the course and their equipment. We will strive to have exercises that will help the shooter handle their equipment more efficiently and SAFELY. This event will be open to the public. four separate shooting stages will be offered with a different Course of Fire for each stage. A shooter will be required to shoot from “cover”, move from one shooting position to another, change magazines and/or reload a revolver. The shooter may be required to efficiently clear mis-fires, should one occur, and do this while maintaining SAFE gun handling procedures at all times.
Practice sessions will be each Thursday at 6 pm. through the end of October at a cost of $5.00 per participant. It will take place at the Pistol Range and will consist of a single Course of Fire. The purpose of this event is to acquaint the shooters with the SAFETY rules and give a good “taste of the action”. We will also be looking for volunteers to assist in the management of future events.
There will be a competition on the second Saturday of each month May-October at 10 am. The cost is $10.00 per participant. This event will consist of at least 4 shooting stations. Two newly renovated shooting areas on the left side of the Rifle Range, one station at the far end of the Rifle Range and one on the Pistol Range.
In order to participate, you must have eye and ear protection, a strong side hip holster, and multiple magazines to enable you to shoot at least 25 rounds in a single Course of Fire.
Please come out and join us in a fun shooting experience!
