Onsite Camping is available, Harris Ranch is about 20 minutes if a hotel is needed.

NRL22 Match.
These are the hottest new thing in positional rifle shooting!

Email if you need to share a 22 -- we'll get you shooting. 50 rounds of ammo. The shooters a super friendly and it takes place in a no-pressure setting.

Centerfire Match.
New shooters will be given just about 2x the time at each stage and will receive coaching from other shooters. The match is actually two matches in one and It runs just about every month, has 8 stations that can be All Prone as an entry-level or novice division match, or off barricades/obstacles as the Open division.

The current field of fire at each station is fairly diverse with targets in valleys, hillsides on ridges and over various wind corridors. The course covers about 2 miles of hiking up and down rolling hills, usually with more than enough wind to keep things exciting. The match is all steel 2moa or better, ranging 200 yards to 900, 1 shot per target, 50 rounds. In the image above targets are scattered throughout the hills and valleys

Positional division This is a great format if your tuning up your positional skills for bigger PRS or NRL matches, a hunter or just want to have fun. So it is whatever you want to make of it. There is a ton of time if your a newer shooter, you'll get almost 2X the time. There are at least two completely different obstacle sets at each station. The course of fire is clearly spelled out.

The prone division, is ideal for newer shooters trying to gain a bit more experience at longer ranges and soft entry into matches. The prone format is modeled after the now closed (due to politics) Whittington Center in Raton; 1 shot, hit or miss move on per target.

The match is in Central California off highway 5 just south of Harris Ranch:
1 hour from Fresno
1.5 from Bakersfield
2.5 hours from San Jose
3:15 hours from SF
3:15 hours from Sacramento
4 hours north of Los Angles
5 hours from Reno

5-1/2 from Las Vegas

If you're in the area and want to give this a try, these are some great folks to shoot with. I brought my daughter down to shoot the NRL22 match and she had a great time and they all made her feel very welcome.
