Chapter Calendar


Our next America's Rifle Challenge will be held on our rifle range on 3 December 2022.

Please show up at our rifle range located at 2729 Garrisonville road between 0815 and 0830 in order to register and attend the safety brief at 0845. We will go hot at 0900. If you don't attend the safety brief - you may not shoot the match. Although this match was developed to be shot with an AR15, you may use any rifle with a detachable magazine. Bring your firearm in good working condition and at least 4 magazines (if you don't have 4 bring what you have), you will need 125 rounds of the proper ammunition for your gun, a way to carry your mags (pockets work), and a sling is helpful but not required. Optics are permitted. Of course, eye and ear protection is required and a brimmed hat is recommended. Bring any food & water if you may need. These matches typically run about an hour per relay and we're usually wrapped up about noon. This match is open to members and their family, and member sponsored guests. As always, the cost of the match is $20 for members, $30 for nonmembers and juniors under age 18 are free. If you're not familiar with this match, we will be shooting from behind a barricade at 100 yards and incrementally moving forward to the 7 yard line engaging multiple targets from multiple positions, to include mandatory magazine changes. The round count for the course of fire in this match is 100. It may be chilly, but we will have the burn barrel. This match is a lot of fun and I hope to see you all there!

America's Rifle Challenge (ARC) is a new recreational training event that's meant to prove to dedicated 2nd Amendment supporters and newbies alike that the "AR" in "AR-15" stands for "America's Rifle."

The ARC offers three different types of events: training events, basic matches and advanced matches. Each allows participants to experience shooting from multiple defensive firing positions. The basic matches are shot at a slower pace to allow new competitors to get comfortable with their firearms, while the advanced matches are timed, with competitors moving through multiple firing points and reloading against the clock. ARC isn't just limited to AR-15s either; any semi-automatic detachable magazine-fed rifle can be used.

For most events, you'll just need your rifle, two detachable magazines, magazine carrier, sling, eye and ear protection and ammo.
