    Riley Conservation Club will be carrying on the outdoor tradition of the Carry Gun Match inspired by Aron Bright (coach)

    The match will be held on Bay 7 (the farthest Bay). The match will start at 0900 and competitors can sign up for a slot. Currently the match is set up to accommodate 20 shooters. Registration will be opened up for a 2nd gun (can only shoot a division once). First gun will be $20 and second gun will be $10. PLEASE HAVE EXACT CHANGE.

    Registration is slightly different. You are now signing up for a "time period." You can register both guns during that time period. If the "squad" is full, just register 2nd gun in a time slot in the next "squad." This is a test to see if it will be easier to score on the tablet.

    Squad 1 is 9:00-9:45
    Squad 2 is 10:00 to 10:45
    Squad 3 is 11:00 to 11:45
    Squad 4 is 12:00 to 12:45
    Squad 5 is 1:00 to 1:45

    Below are the rules as written by Aron.

    "The philosophy behind this match is for it to be a shooting test as related to real world, every day carry that any armed civilian may encounter. It will be a match since we are keeping score. There will not be gun restrictions, nor caliber restrictions. The courses of fire will always be between one and twelve shots. A shooter will have to do a mandatory reload in courses of fire requiring more than six shots.

    There will be two divisions. Open, which is anything goes. Limited, which means no optics, lasers, lights, or ported barrels. The gun must be worn to the match and worn from the match. There will be no safe area for gun handling. The gun must remain in the holster except when on the firing line under the direct observation and authority of the range officer. After completing each course of fire the shooter will change magazines and safely re-holster and therefore be ready for the next course of fire. Prior to each course of fire the shooter will be given the opportunity for a press check. No sight pictures maybe taken during the press check.

    This match will be shot from concealment. The gun and holster must be completely concealed while standing with both arms extended and raised to the shoulder level. All reloads must come from a concealed position on the belt or from a pocket.

    Requirements:

    Ear and Eye protection

    Holster that securely attaches to a belt (No ankle or shoulder holsters)

    2 magazines or speed loaders (more would be better)"

    This match will be at least 8-9 stages with round count TBD but generally in the 75-90 range

    Dang. Conflicts with family activities again. Maybe I can make June’s.
    June is in the air. Area 5 steel championship is the weekend we normally have it. We've talked about having it the 4th Saturday but not sure if logistically it will work.

    July 9th is also questionable at this time as I have surgery on July 7th on my thumb.

    Man, it seems like we just shot this one! That came up fast! And I missed this posting somehow and now the time slot I can shoot is full. Looks like June or July for my next one.

    Have fun all!

    The normal match day is 2nd Saturday. It was rescheduled to the 4th Saturday last month

    June and July are up in the air

    June is area 5 steel challenge
    July I'm having surgery prior to the match. It will be up to the other MDs if they want to have it then.

    There are a few openings at 10 and 11

    Wide open after noon.

    Walk ons will be allowed but we recommend being there before 12 as we will tear down immediately after last shooter to turn the bay back over to club membership
