Red Rifle/Beaumont Hamel Shoot

On Saturday June 1st, IDPANL will be hosting our annual Red Rifle/Beaumont Hamel military surplus shoot. This event is a very informal competition open to all members and guests of the St. Johns Rod And Gun Club. Over the years we have combined multiple events in an effort to get more participation from the general membership. These events used to be quite epic and well attended in the past and we would like to see that again. By combining events we are not limiting anyone from shooting. If you have military surplus firearms and would like to display and shoot them than this is the time to do it.

The shoot will consist of multiple events using both rifles and pistols. There will be IDPA style pistol shooting as well as many different rifle courses of fire. Events will include 100 and 200 yard target and sniper style shooting, team shooting, and head to head competition. There will be something for everyone and you may compete in one or all events. There will be firearms available to borrow in all the common Russian military calibers, and if bringing ammunition please bring non corrosive if at all possible. Round counts may be high so prepare accordingly and bring lots of ammunition.

Lunch will be provided. The fee for the shoot is 10.00 If anyone needs more info please drop an email to idpainnl@gmail.com Or contact Mike Saunders at coyotehunter204r@gmail.com .


Sunday Trapshooting

Sunday Trapshooting

The club’s Sunday trapshoots have started for the season. Setup for our regular weekly trapshoots will begin at 10:30 AM with shooting at 11 AM. Late arrivals are always welcome to join in after the 11 AM start. Just make your way to an active trap field, wait for a break in shooting and ask to be squadded. If you have to leave early, wait for a break in shooting, pick up your empties, pay your target fees and we'll see you next time. If we’re hosting a special shoot start times may vary, so stay tuned to the club’s website and Calendar of events for details.

Interested in trying trap? Come join us. We charge a nominal fee for your targets - $5 for a round of 25 targets. Shooters must provide their own ammunition (# 7 ½ or smaller), shotguns, hearing and eye protection. If you’re new to trapshooting, an experienced shooter will give you a breakdown of the rules and provide some basic instruction. Just identify yourself or better yet, contact us ahead of time so that we can make time for the introduction.

We have another busy shoot schedule for 2019. See the club’s Calendar and Events page for a complete list of our shoots. We offer shooting for all skill levels and for the recreational and competitive shooters alike. Our Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA) registered shoots provide competitive shooters the opportunity to practice but it by no means implies that everyone need shoot this many targets. Our policy is that you may shoot as much or as little as you like. Our goal is to accommodate everyone and during all shoots we will have trap fields designated for both ATA and recreational shooters.

The club’s Trap Committee is considering adding a weekly trapshoot to our shooting schedule this year. If you’re interested in organizing the Tuesday evening shoot please contact us. If you’re interested in attending please let us know so we can gauge interest.

The Trap Committee contact info can be found under the Contact Us page. Feel free to touch base with us if you have any questions or would like to give trapshooting a try.

See you at the club.
