Action Pistol is a dynamic discipline within the “Action Pistol” shooting sports. It is a combination of speed and accuracy, with more emphasis on the accuracy, with speed still playing a major factor in your ability to achieve up a good score. All shots are fired static (no moving while firing) from a set distance and depending on the course of fire shot sequence, round count or overall time are scored as well. This combination is what makes NRA Action Pistol a fun, challenging and exciting discipline. Being able to draw a pistol from holster, fire 6 rounds in 5 seconds into a paper plate sized scoring area, is a lot of fun and very challenging. The skill improvement and confidence gained in your marksmanship from shooting Action Pistol will be noticeable.
The most popular form of organized rifle-only competitive shooting in the United States is High Power Competition. High Power Competition encompasses primarily Service Rifle and Match Rifle, with the lesser sub-discipline of Sporting Rifle.
One of the fastest growing shooting sports in the country right now is the action-packed multi-gun competition commonly known as “3-gun.”
Competitors use at least three different firearms — a modern sporting rifle (MSR); a pistol; and a shotgun. Occasionally, a pistol caliber carbine, known as a PCC, is used in addition to the pistol and rifle. Matches involve courses where the shooter must move through different stages and engage targets in a variety of different positions. Each stage will generally require the use of all three firearms and the shooter must transition safely between them.
The targets might include clay pigeons (both static and aerial), cardboard silhouettes, varying sizes and shapes of steel targets and targets that move when engaged. Distances of the targets might vary from 1 yard to 400 yards. The shooter who hits the most targets avoiding penalties in the least amount of time is the winner.
MultiGun practices throughout the winter months at the indoor range to maintain proficiency with pistols and PCC’s or .22 Rifles. During the summer months, weekly practices are held outdoors along with four MultiGun matches.
We welcome out of area shooters to join us not only for practices, but also for our monthly matches and any shooter who is interested in wanting to learn more about the exciting world of MultiGun. The first time shooting is free and after that if you live less than 50 miles from Great Falls, you must become a member of the Great Falls Shooting Sports Complex.
Shooting sessions will be held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday evening each month. Preparation and setup will commence at 5:00 PM and firing will continue til dusk.
The 300 Yard and Silhouette Ranges will be closes to the general membership, on these dates, from 5 PM to dusk.
