    Fairfax (VA) Rod & Gun Club - 2013 highpower rifle schedule

    Fairfax (VA) Rod & Gun Club - 2013 highpower rifle schedule



    All firearms must be unloaded when transported on Club property, except for persons with lawful authorization to carry a concealed handgun. Only on-duty law enforcement officers may carry in exposed holsters if complete personal control of the firearm is maintained at all times. Exposed carry is restricted to Club sanctioned or Board authorized activities.

    Wearing eye and ear protection is mandatory for all persons on or near active ranges.

    No loaded firearm may be left unattended or otherwise not in full control of its owner. A firearm in a locked vehicle is considered under control.

    Actions of uncased firearms must be open except when ready to fire. Closed breech firearms may be closed and placed in a stationary gun rack after a safety check to ensure they are unloaded.

    Only one firearm at a time may be uncased or otherwise immediately available to each shooter.

    Firearms in cases, shooting boxes, holsters, or a stationary rack behind the line are considered not immediately available to a shooter. Only ammunition for the firearm in use is allowed at the firing point.

    No firearm may be loaded until the shooter is on a firing point and ready to shoot on an active range (please see specific Range Rules section for muzzle loaders). A firearm is considered loaded if any part of a shell, cartridge, or charge is within any part of the firearm.

    Detached magazines and clips may be pre-loaded. All firing must be from established firing lines or shooting stations unless specially allowed on a specific range or during an approved training session.

    Nice they exempt police from their policies....plus what's a high-powered rifle ... the FBI would say a Henry 22.

    Looks like fun though.

    We'd love to see some new highpower rifle shooters at our matches.

    The fall is a great time to stick your toe in the pool.
    The veterans are in chill-mode now that Nationals are over, and the weather could not be nicer.

    All matches fired at 200 yards.
    Standing, sitting and prone.

    Optic-sighted rifles are welcome!
    (Please have at least a basic zero for your rifle. If you can't find the target with your bullets, its hard to help you much during a match.)

    I feel the need to post basic club safety rules because there is always the chance that some numnutz will show up and do the most amazingly stupid thing. I had to "speak to" a fella who showed up at one of our Quantico practices. He was over by the far end of the firing line, pointing one of those exposed-hammer single-shot rifles (with an optic as big as the gun) up and down the range while we were firing at the 600 yard line. I mean, he was literally shouldering the rifle, and pointing it alternately downrange, and then back toward the area behind the firing line (what is that?... "uprange?").

    Anyhow, we do practice safety at FRGC, and we'd like for everybody who attends our matches to feel safe and welcome.

    Here's a very basic primer on what is the nature of "highpower rifle" shooting.

    Ignore the part that harps on iron sights.
    Optics are "legal" for NRA-format highpower rifle matches now.
