March! Finally a month with some shooting. We were able to shoot all matches. We had a great month with terrific matches and plenty of help setting up and breaking down. What else can I say? Thank you to all who helped out! Let's hope April does not bring showers and we can have another month of shooting all the scheduled matches. April match information is posted below with all pertinent information.
However, a frustrating note must be said first....
Due to the fact that somebody decided it would be ok to shoot up the plate racks with rifles we will be taking them down for repair and they will be closed until further notice. If this behavior continues, the plate racks will be removed from the range permanently. Frankly, I'm incredibly dissapointed in having to write this. If anyone has information as to who destroyed our property please report back to me.

(Updated!) April 27th:USPSA Special Classifier Match - Match Director: Matt McMahon
April's match is a USPSA Special Classifier match consisting of 4 classifiers and 3 medium courses of fire with a round count of 78. This year follows the theme I used for last years match. It will focus on speed and accuracy, it will be challenging yet deceptively simple. Although this type of match does have a problem with backups due to the fast turnaround an low round count, I have tried to balance out the match to relieve this problem. If you do happen to finish early in one pit, do not enter the next pit until the squad ahead of you is finished.
Equipment - make sure you have your equipment in the correct position on your person for the division you have declared for this match. If you do not know what the requirements are for your division, ASK! If you are caught wearing your equipment outside your division requirements you will be bumped up to open. I will be doing spot checks to enforce this and I also ask that the range officers pay close attention to this as well. Since all USPSA matches at LIPSA are USPSA sanctioned events, we all need to follow the guidelines set forth in the rule book for the declared division we are shooting in.
Divisions for this match will be:

Online pre-registration for this match will open on the morning of 4/21.
