SFFGC held a IDPA/Shotgun Match on Sat, Feb 7th. It was a cold day but 12 hardy participants braved the cold and light snow to shoot the match.  It was a fun match with 3 handgun stages and 2 shotgun stage. Thanks to all who came out early to get setup done quickly so we could retire to the clubhouse to stay warm for a bit before shooting.  Also thanks to Dave Morton for SOing the match even though he wasn't shooting.  We are in the process of finalizing our shooting calendar for the summer season!

July 5 2014 3 Gun Match 

On Saturday July 5 SFFGC held our second 3 gun match of the season.  It was another great success with 19 participants.  It was another great course of fire designed by Ian St. Pierre.  A fun and challenging course of fire, all who attended had a great time.  Special thanks to Ian for designing and running the match.  Also thanks to Dave Morton for officiating and Dougald Souter for rolling out and watching over the new electronic scoring system.  This electronic scoring system worked great with no problems and match results were ready instantly once the match was finished and emailed to the participants before most had left the range! Also thanks to all of the other volunteers for helping with setup and scoring on Friday and Saturday.  I am extremely proud of the level of competition and quality of our matches so far this year as well as the help we have gotten from the membership to run them.  We continue to look for new ways to improve such as going to electronic scoring. Next up is an IDPA match to be held on Saturday, July 26.  There is a also a club holster course scheduled for Saturday, August 2.  An email will be sent out by the club listing the requirements to participate.

June 25 2014  Our next match is coming up fast

     It is a 3 gun match scheduled for Saturday, July 5.  This match will be officiated using 3 Gun Nation rules which can be found on the 3GN website.  Setup will take place on Friday, July 4 at 5pm.  Also there is a club holster course scheduled for Saturday, August 2.  An email will be sent out by the club detailing the equipment necessary to take part.  It is an informative and fun course and a great day of shooting.  Wednesday evening IDPA practices continue every Wednesday evening from around 4pm to dusk.  Anyone wishing to participate must have taken the SFFGC club holster course or IPSC black badge course.

June 8 2014 Annual Community Challenge Match 


As most of our members know our annual Community Challenge Match was held on June 7th.  This year was another fantastic success with great weather and an even greater level of competition then ever before.  Every year this match seems to get better and better.  I would like to thank all the volunteers who came together to help make this match happen we couldn't have done it without you.  This kind of effort by the members of our club reminds us all why the club has been so successful and why many more wait on a waiting list to become members.  Thanks again to everyone who help out. May 28 2014

Any handgunners who have time this Sunday morning (June 1st) please come out and help with our range cleanup day, it's a great chance to meet some new people and get those volunteer hours in!  Cleanup starts at 9am.

May 13 2014 3 Gun Match

On Saturday, May 10 we held our first match of the summer season, also, our first 3 gun match this year.  We had a full squad of shooter's from our club and various other area clubs.  The course of fire was technical and difficult and a great deal of fun to shoot.  Everyone had a blast and we had positive feedback from everyone.  A special thanks to Ian St. Pierre for designing, running and scoring the match.  Also a special thanks to all the volunteers who came out to help with setup on Friday and scoring, patching and teardown on Saturday.  If this match was any indication of the matches we can expect this season we are in for another great summer of shooting.  On a side note we will be hoping to start our Wednesday evening practices very soon, probably in a couple weeks.
