16 June. USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association) Pistol Match: Practical Shooting measures the shooter’s ability to shoot rapidly and accurately through obstacle-laden courses. The shooter moves, negotiates, runs, covers, and speed reloads through the stage as fast as their skill will allow. If this fast paced shooting sounds like fun, come out and give it a try. Show up with an unloaded centerfire pistol in .38, 9mm, .40, or .45 in an enclosed case and ask a match official where the safe area is so you can holster your gun safely. Also bring a rigid holster, magazines, and mag pouches capable of holding at least 32 rounds. Overall match round counts are usually between 100 and 150 rounds. Specific division requirements can be found at http://uspsa.org. Starts at 9:30 AM and cost will be $20 ($15 for Pinetucky members, active duty military, police, and fire).

Woman’s shooting League at Pinetucky is a ladies only, non-profit organization established by women shooters for women shooters in the pistol, rifle and shotgun sports. This organization is designed to take beginners to whatever skill level they wish to achieve and provide experienced shooters with more opportunities to learn and grow. We meet monthly to practice, learn and grow as shooters. The objective of some is to improve their skill levels for target and/or competitive shooting. Also, we hope to create opportunities for women to be introduced to issues important to women shooters, learn safe gun handling skills and train together. Events are 4th Saturday of every month.
