La Grande Rifle & Pistol Club

Air Rifle Field Trials

Due to some health concerns the present program director will be unable to administer the matches and is cancelling the rest of the matches for 2021. We are hoping to start up again normally in 2022. Thanks to everyone who regularly attended the matches and helped out with set up and tear down.

Do you have an air rifle and want to try a new challenge? Air guns from old multi-pumps, spring pistons, to the latest pre-charged pneumatics (PCPs) in .177, .20 or .22 caliber are welcome. We have a class for your air gun!

The stages are designed so that your shooting position is up to you - standing, siting, prone or using anything (chair, tree, stump) that is in the shoot box. The targets are not at a set distance or lined up in a row. One target may be at 10 yds. and another in the same bank may be at 35 yds. The target area may be as small as one inch or 4 x 5 inches. Also they react when hit by falling, rocking or swinging.

The matches are on the third Sunday and are held from March through October on the River Range. We set up in the trees to the left as you face down range. Match fees are $5.00 for adults with shooters under 16 free.

Match set up starts at 9:00 a.m. and shooting begins at 10:00 a.m. Curious and just want to watch a match? Come on out and bring your family!

The next air gun shoot is scheduled for the 16th. So far we have not held matches because of too much snow and cold temps, pouring rain, and flooded range leaving nowhere to shoot. Last month after a couple of really bad days the match day came around and it was actually pretty nice. But since only three of us showed up we didn't shoot. We are really hoping with the better weather we get some shooters this month! Remember, it's Sunday the16th! Come out and bring your pellet rifle (or pistol) and join us shooting at all those little knockdown critters! Hope to see you there!
