The short-range course of fire match follows IDPA-style safety principles and generally will have all targets at no more than 10 yards. Most stages are based upon a real-life events that were recorded on video and adapted for a square range. Otherwise, it is a regular course of fire, with many stages requiring a reload. When I send out the match results I include a link to the videos for the events from that match. The idea is for the shooter to solve the problem and then view the video of the actual event to understand how it happened in real-life.

A short-range course of fire match makes carry-suitable handguns more competitive. Ideally, shooters will use a pistol they carry to shoot the match--if you can legitimately say you carry a specific pistol, you may use it in the Short-Range Match. All pistols may be loaded to capacity and the match may have reloads on the clock.

Shooters may use any functional and safe belt holster and magazine carrier/speed loader carrier. Shooters may reload from the pocket; however, no drawing from the pocket, a fanny pack, shoulder holster, etc. If in doubt, please ask.

If you do not have a belt holster for your pistol, please bring it in a case. Shooters w/o holsters will begin from the low ready and will have 2.00 seconds added to their time for each string begun from the low ready.

Sign up is between 0900 - 0945hrs; Please make every effort to be on time for signup and don't wait until the last minute.
