The in-house Winter Indoor Pistol League will commence IN PERSON on Thursday, January 12, 2023 at 6:30pm and continue every Thursday for 10 weeks until March 16th.  It will feature both rim fire and center fire pistol matches, and rim fire rifle competitions.  There will be 3 events in all.  The cost will be $40.00 for one event and $5.00 for each event after that.

We will start at 6:30pm shooting the rim fire rifle match.  Each shooter will shoot 30 rounds at a 50 ft. small bore rifle target (A-17).  Shooters may lean against the front of the port and rest their elbows on the top of the port.  Rifles may be equipped with scopes.

At 7pm, we will shoot an NRA gallery rim fire bullseye pistol match.  Each shooter will shoot 10 rounds at a standard 50 ft. slow fire target (B-2), 10 rounds at a standard 50 ft. timed fire target (B-3), and 10 rounds at a standard rapid-fire target (B-3).  The NRA gallery match is shot one-handed; however, we do allow a two-handed class for our league for those who would rather shoot in this manner.

There will be a combat match when the NRA gallery match is finished.  Shooters will fire 25 rounds into a silhouette target at three different positions.  The ammunition used will be any centerfire pistol cartridge.

LEAGUES

Trap Big 50: LSA in association with the Amateur Trapshooting Assoc. (ATA) will once again host the Big 50 Trap Program in 2022! The Big 50 Program has been instituted by the ATA to encourage shooters into registered trap shooting. The program will feature 50 registered targets per event. The Big 50 shoots will be scheduled weekly on Wednesdays, from June 1st through August 31st, 2022, with a 5pm start. During these times, the trap field will be open to the public for registered Big 50 and non-registered shooting. Both registered and non-registered shooters may shoot at the same time and on the same squad. All levels of shooters are welcome. For further information, please contact us at info@leesportsmen.com.

5-Stand: Our 5-Stand course will be open, weather permitting, 2022 Dates/times: June 4th, July 9th, August 6th from 12pm to 3pm.  Sign in begins at 11:30am, and hopefully we will have the first line begin within 30 minutes.  WHAT IS 5-STAND?  It is a cross between trap, skeet, and sporting clays, with the advantage that it is more action packed than trap, has more cross flying patterns than skeet, and is faster and less expensive than sporting clays.  It will definitely make you a better wing shot, so give it a try!
