La Grande Rifle & Pistol Club

Defensive Pistol

The La Grande Defensive Shooters discipline brings together a diverse group of men and women who have the common interest of wanting to be proficient with their firearms.

We use scenarios to simulate various “Real World" defensive environments to hone our response to life-threatening situations. We hope that none of us has to use these skills, but we feel the responsibility to help our shooters survive such confrontations.

If you are interested in learning and practicing your shooting skills PLEASE join us on the second Saturday of each month at the Pistol Range on Rankin Road.

About this discipline

Our matches employ suitable self-defense weapons and associated equipment along with appropriate tactics to solve simulated real world scenarios. No "Competition Only" equipment is permitted.


I: Safe handling of firearms is first and foremost in all of our activities.

II: Create an encouraging atmosphere for our shooters to become capable and confident in the use of self-defense firearms and equipment.

III: Create realistic match scenarios from current events to provide realistic situations for participants to test their abilities. We stress “self-competition” rather than head-to-head competition.

IV: The main goal is to increase the individual’s skill and confidence.
