We will hold the monthly match at the USI Action Pistol Range, where it is normally held, this Sunday at 9:00 AM.
Our FT matches are held every third Sunday of the month.
The weather will be summer like and hot. Bring a hat and sunscreen. I will have cold refreshments of iced soda and bottled water.

We will be running our typical 24 targets/48 shot match with two targets/four shots standing. Rifles are strictly limited to under 20 fpe and .177/.20/.22 caliber with lead pellets only. We shoot 12 lanes two targets per lane and shoot the targets left to right.
We have PCP (Open) and Spring divisions and WFTF and even Pistol.

We shoot in squads of two and three. Eye protection is required for both shooters and spectators. Cost for club members is $10.00 and guests are $15.00.

Juniors under 18 with a member are now free. I have a loaner PCP if someone wants to come out and give FT a try. Let me know via email ahead of time.
Hunter classes use buckets/seats and shooting sticks. Scope power is limited to 12X and dialed back to 12X for variable power scopes.

Ladies and juniors are encouraged to attend to see and experience what the excitement is all about.

There will be free air tank refills after the match for tanks with a current hydro.

All shooters must sign the USI liability waiver form located on line here prior to shooting a match at USI: waiver/
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. Get one at the club house before the match. 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: calendar/

Directions here: directions-and-facilities/

Hope to see you there on Sunday.

Not a hard match with many posting 90%+ scores in the 48 shot match. ( no one cleaned it tho )
