RICHMOND ROD & GUN - MULTI-GUN PRACTICE EVERY 1ST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH
 
Hey shooters,

let me tell y'all something...if you are interested in multi-gunning, and you have never been to a multi-gun match before, then you are definitely missing something! The RICHMOND ROD & GUN CLUB (click on the link) has started running a multi-gun practice stage every 1st Saturday of the month. (0930 to 1330 hours). This is the place to be if you have not found a place to practice your multi-gun skills. (Shotgun/AR Rifle).

Dan C arrived at approximately 0600 hours (this past Saturday) to start setting-up the multi-gun stage. If you attended this weekends practice, you will know that Dan did an exceptional job with everything. The stage was complex enough to make you think, yet easy enough to run it through in a speedy and fluid manner. (Speedy...if your rifle transitions, and your shotgun reloads, were up-to-par). ;)

Everyone there had a great time this weekend. I met a few shooters who had never shot their shotguns in a "run and gun" venue - that left with huge grins on their faces. Some of the guys were solid blocks upon arrival, and were actually looking really good when they left at the end of the practice. Everyone had something good to say about this weekends practice session.

Between a great stage, and Dan's great tips and friendship, the practice sessions looks like they will be here to stay.

After the multi-gun practice, a bunch of us headed over to "Geoff's Playland". Geoff is planning to have the 200-yard range open the same Saturday the multi-gun practice will be held - from 1300 to 1600 hours. This Saturday Geoff had some nice drills for us to run. It was pretty fun, and entertaining as well. If y'all do not have a "true" 200-yard zero on your multi-gun long guns, or do not have practice moving and shooting at 200-yard distances...then come play.

Personally, I did not bring my long gun, as I primarily came to help Dan with the multi-gun set-up and stuff. But Greg and Dimo lent me their AR's (and ammo), and I was happy as a pig rollin in doo-doo. Thanks, shooters!!

Let me end with the core root of all this - good fellowship and practice!!

We, as a club, have decided to take the next step and allow a safe place for shooters to practice their 3-gunning skills. I know there are a few clubs around the SF Bay Area that have multi-gun matches...but I do not know of any clubs near SF (that I am aware of) that have stages set-up to let you practice with your multi-gun toys. Dan is a very experienced multi-gunner, and we also have national-level shooters (multi-gun, pistol, etc...) at our club as well. We defenitely have the experience to pull this off, and give you multi-gunners out there the ability to take your skills to the next level. Between the excellent stage set-up's, tips from the experienced national-level competitors, and a safe place to practice...it is a win-win situation for everyone.

As I said, as a club, we have the shooters who are willing to give of their personal time to help take you to the next level. Myself (and a few other club RO's) will also be taking the USPSA NROI Multi-Gun course shortly. So we will be up-to-par with the current USPSA NROI MG rulings as well. So not only will you get good practice, but you will also learn the USPSA rules for multi-gunning as well.

And lets not forget the fellowship. As shooters, we know our camps are small and tight-knit. The RRGC has great and friendly bunch of shooters here. (OK...most of us at least). So drop-in and rub shoulders for a while. Even if you do not shoot, but are interested, drop in and ask questions. When you get here, make sure to ask for the "Action Range". And don't forget your "eyes and ears"!!

If y'all have never come out before...come!

But let me end with a very importand note: YOU MUST BE CLASSIFIED IN ONE OF THE ACTION SHOOTING DISCIPLINES, OR BE AN ORIENTATION CLASS GRADUATE IN ORDER TO SHOOT...PERIOD. No exceptions!

If you try to sneak in, and get caught, the proper discipline will be distributed, with the possibility of getting permanently banned from the range. Safety is number one!

Hope to see y'all out there. (Again)?

In Christ: Raymond

See ya there ray. Was a ton of fun.

Let me know if you guys need a hand setting up.

richie3888 04-06-2011 8:38 PM

I would love to try this. Can you pm me more information on how to get started. I have been to the pistol action range and got a quick over view of the rules. Do I have to attend the class to practice in the 3 gun?

Your supposed to have taken the class to be on the action range. It would be a VERY good Idea to take it.

We need to see a specific minimum demonstrated level of safe gun-handling before you can run practice stages and shoot matches at Richmond unless you can show a valid competition classification.

I'm signed up for the class in may. April was full already.

RaymondMillbrae 04-06-2011 9:27 PM

Dan is the man in charge of this for the moment.

He was pretty adamant about shooters being classified in one of the USPSA shooting divisions, or having taken the orientation class.

The name of the game was SAFETY!

By being classified in one of the latter groups, we know you have a good grasp of the safety rules, and have also had hands-on knowledge with proper supervision.

Regardless, come on by one of these Saturdays and take a look. Meet some of the shooters, and ask questions about the gear/ammo/firearms!

Looking forward to meeting a new shooter.

In Christ: Raymond

There will be no multi-gun practice for May, the first Sat next month is reserved for a much needed cleanup day, likely to return the first Sat in June.

Well, darn. That doesn't leave too many more chances to practice for BARC.

sargenv 04-12-2011 2:20 PM

No, I guess not, but it's more than we had last year... :) Also, I believe there is a multi gun match on the weekend before the BARC.. so you can call that "some" practice..

You could say, "Well, darn. That doesn't leave too many more chances to practice for BARC". And you would be corect.

But then again, there are literally hundreds (if not thousands) of people who shoot at the range every year. So we could also also say, "Geesh, it's about time we cleaned this place up. Lets get it looking good for the following year and BARC". ;)

Come one, come all. It is your range as well. Lets rub shoulders together, work up a little sweat, and help clean-up where we all shoot.

Like my Pastor used to say, "Why is it that the same 10% of the people always do 90% of the work"?

June 4th...............

RaymondMillbrae 06-04-2011 3:04 AM

Practice today.

Be there or be slooooooooooow during your next 3-gun match. ;)

Open from 0930 to 1330 hours.

Nozzano22 06-04-2011 12:31 PM

Coming home to the Bay Area
 
This sounds great. For many years I lived close enough to RRGC to hear the shots on quiet Sunday mornings. Later as a teen I shot some skeet there. Now I have got the 'bug' and have been shooting IDPA and IPSC as well as some steel out here in Connecticut.

I am coming home at the end of June and plan on visiting the range after that. While I am classified in both IDPA and IPSC I would like to take the orientation/safety class just to learn the specifics of the range, where can I sign up for the next one?

Looking forward to a new home range and lots of range time,

Mike

uscbigdawg 06-04-2011 1:21 PM

Rain = no shooting for me. I'll be there next month though. Sugar melts.

Looks like June 18th & July 16th are the next two Safe Hangunning Classes. They fill up pretty fast.

Currently classified, or ever classified?

I used to shoot pretty regularly at Chabot, both with TASC and 3-gun, even took the USPSA Range officer course. I haven't been out as much in the last few years, but am trying to get back out more.

If you can prove you were ever classified you are good to go.

wheelgunner 06-05-2011 4:49 AM

I would like to join in, sounds like fun.

200 yd 1300 - 1600?

The point of the standards is twofold:

1) To know that you have safe gun-handling abilities.
2) To know that you are familiar with range safety SOP.

Sounds like you already have both.

Like Geoff said, just prove it, and you should be GTG.

Let the guys know you are a bit rusty, and they will guide you through the practice.

The 200-yard range should open at 1330 to 1600 hours on those 3-gun practice Saturdays.

But double check with Geoff first. (Shoot him a PM). He is co-ordinating the 200-yard range, and this Saturday he was not here.

I was thinking that would be really hard to do, but I just looked and TASC has match results online from when I shot with them.

I'll try and come out next month.

We don't really need hard copy to know you are a competitor. If wee don't know you we will ask you a few questions and if you can walk the talk, the talk will be a certain way. A shooter usually knows another shooter with just a few minutes conversation ;)

LMT4ME 06-09-2011 5:34 PM

Will there be a practice July 2? I ask because you're having a SG match the week before and because of the holiday. Unfortunately, I cannot attend the SG match and was hoping to get some more rnds in.
Thanks

These practices are great

Yep......

GeoffLinder 06-09-2011 8:25 PM

I expect to be able to run a 200 yard stage on July 2nd too. As usual, after 12pm is when setup on the 200 yard range will commence and would expect to be open for biz just around 1pm.

sargenv 06-09-2011 8:37 PM

There is going to be a multi gun match the weekend before the BARC so you can treat that as also a practice session.. I think we have the 200 reserved for that as well.. (Geoff?).

Nice, I thought 2011 was going to be a bad year for long guns at R&R.

If you have the 200 yard range reserved I will setup a stage there.

sargenv 06-10-2011 10:46 AM

It is on the calendar.. so it's a go :)

Copy that, there will be 5 rifle flash targets on the 200 yard bay for your shooting pleasure. The stage will be called "Hop Scotch". 2 positions 5 feet apart, each time you miss you must move to the other position, simple, easy, right ;)

sargenv 06-10-2011 12:55 PM

man.. I'll be doing a lotta movin'... ;)

Is there any restrictions on rifle?
I have an AR M4gry, 16", tactical light, & forward pistol grip.

Ahhh this is troo.... :D I know, I'll blame my bullets! Yeah that's it! lol!!

No more bolt guns for me.. not even a lever gun.. maybe someday I'll have me own rifle with me own swaged bullets :)

RaymondMillbrae 06-29-2011 5:45 PM

Hey guys, it's the first Saturday of the month again.

Three gun practice at the action range...courtesy of Danielus Revolverus Supremus! (Dan Carden).

See y'all there! ;)
