    Gateway Rifle and Pistol Club (GRPC) hosted its third NRA Women On Target pistol clinic on June 2nd. We had 15 ladies attend, all of whom had little or no firearms experience. Sue Carter was the Clinic Director, Ted Carter was the Range Safety Officer, and Larry Watkins served as the Chief Range Officer. The ladies spent the first half hour discussing firearms safety and range commands, then another half hour learning the fundamentals of a good shot. They were split into two groups and took turns on the firing line on Range 1 at 15 yards. Each group spent 30 minutes learning to group their shots. They then came back to the line and had 15 minutes to shoot and pop balloons.

    Oviedo, FL 

    Another season has come and gone for the spring youth program. The Chuluota Sportsmen's Club hosted another great series of sessions focused on introducing local youngsters to safe shooting sports. This was a six week program, with children ages from 10 to 16. The youngsters learned firearm safety and shooting with the club's 22 rifles. The instructors were quite impressed with the talent that the kids demonstrated during the six weeks. Some were had some limited experience, but for most it was their first exposure to shooting. A number of different targets used each week provided a variety of opportunities to learn and later compete. Balloons, regular paper targets, large playing cards were all used in shooting games.  For a finale. we had a mock silhouette competition.

    Several children have shown interest in competing with other youth programs throughout the area.

    In the fall we will begin another season, again starting with a safety program, this time with 20g shotguns. This time the program will be centered on shooting clay birds and ending with shooting trap.

    Pictures are provided to show the various children and targets. We had a great group. The instructors are outstanding. See Media Gallery on Home page for photos.

    We'll have both IHMSA (at Geneva) and NRA (at Chuluota) silhouette matches this month. Lots of information, so here goes.

    We'll shoot IHMSA on Saturday (5/12). Big day as this will also be a club swap meet. The swap meet will start at 8:00 am and will run until around noon. Food and drinks will be provided by the boy scouts.  They do a good job and put out a great burger.  Any item, gun related or not, may be bought, sold or traded.

    We are shooting first relay at 0830 so that everyone can shoot and get out before my sweat level gets too high. This will be the last opportunity for SCGAA members to shoot IHMSA qualifying scores for the 2018 club championship, but you can still enter scores from smallbore, CMP high power and benchrest. Right now, 2 members have completed the 3 scores needed to qualify - so it is wide open - you can win the trophy. 

    We expect extra visitors (and hopefully participants) to the range, so please be considerate of those shooting for championship points. Remember our range safety rules, and do not bring firearms onto the line, cased or uncased, during cold range periods. Open chamber flags are required. Also, this will be the last match before summer break.

    NOAA calling for mostly sunny, with a high near 88. Light east wind increasing to 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon, prepare to stay hydrated. Non-member entry fee for all SCGAA competition events is $15, call my cell 407-415-1707 for gate entry. Hope's number is 407-415-2112 as a backup.  Remember, cell coverage is not so good out there, so keep trying. Early arrivals to help set up are always appreciated.

    This Sunday (5/13), the Chuluota sportsman's club will be hosting NRA silhouette competition. Yes, Mother’s Day, so bring mom out too. $5 per relay entry. Setup at about 8:00, match starts at 9. We shoot hunter's pistol, small bore rifle, and cowboy rifle. Both iron sights and scopes are permitted, except cowboy rifle is irons only. NRA hunter's pistol starts at 9am and we shoot 2 relays. Early arrivals to help set up are appreciated.  Smallbore and cowboy rifle at Chuluota starts about 1130-1200. 

    Please remember that central Florida rifle and pistol club hosts smallbore rifle silhouette on the last Sunday, setup starting at noon.  Contact us for more information.

    Any questions, please email or call.

    Central Florida Rifle and Pistol Club hosted the Metric Prone Regional Match on the first week of March, 2018.  Fifteen shooters participated in the event with two juniors travelling from Lakeland area, Emma James and Kyle.  Len Remaly, a veteran four-position shooter from Massachusetts provided the description of weather conditions below.

    Special appreciation to Al, Mick, Luke, and Sean for their efforts in running the match.  Congrats to EmmaJames and Kyle on their performance with some windy and cool conditions.   Len Remaly supplied a report on the conditions – as Matt was in the statistical office

    Both match days started cool in the low 50's to high 40's on Sunday, but warmed up to low 70's or so, after several days in the high 70's and low 80's.  Some Locals complained about the cool temperatures, but not Massachusetts resident Len Remaly, who was skiing on deep snow in Vermont just before driving south to shoot the match and visit family.

    As for wind during your match, the first day, the high wind I recorded was about 19.5 MPH, and 26 MPH on Sunday.  Both days, winds switched around pretty much all day with 50 yds. flags and wind at the firing point seldom in agreement and mirage hard to read and different from flags.  There were some good targets, but everyone had the honor of getting some surprise very wide shots that usually did not correlate with prediction.  Shawn Wells shot a fine(metric) 196 to start the (second) Any sight day off with Len Remaly 2 points behind in wind starting to break 15 mph.

    Shawn Wells took top honors and skillfully worked hard to win the gold medal.  Austin Fletcher worked just as hard and won individual matches in the close competition
