WHY HAVE AN “ACTION PISTOL” RANGE?
While “Action Pistol” shooting conjures up images of competitive shooters vying for a place on the winner’s podium in a match setting, that is most definitely not the only reason for the existence of Action Shooting venues. While RR&GC’s Action Pistol Practice Range is an excellent venue for competitive shooters to use for practicing their sport, the fact is that many shooters who are not the least bit interested in competitive shooting can and should take advantage of what is offered there.
For instance, those who possess a State of Oregon Concealed Handgun License (CHL) owe it to themselves and to those around them to develop and maintain their perishable gun handling skills. The RR&GC Action Pistol Practice Range - unlike most “square ranges” - allows shooters to work with their handguns from the holster. It also allows shooters to engage in rapid fire on one or more targets, to move about while engaging targets, to practice using cover or concealment while doing so, and to set up practice drills which are designed to exercise and improve other shooting skills which cannot be practiced on “square” ranges.
The shooter who keeps a handgun for home defense (regardless of whether s/he has a CHL) is another person who can profit from the type of shooting practice which can be had on the RR&GC Action Pistol Practice Range. Home defense situations require a person to have the same type of gun handling skills which the CHL holder needs.
Other shooters can also benefit from using the Action Pistol Practice Range by expanding their handgunning experience beyond slow fire at a single target on the square range. Developing and maintaining advanced handgunning skills, reinforced by returning to work on the basics, drastically improves any shooter’s performance.
RR&GC’s Action Pistol Practice Range staff is willing and able to work with shooters who are new to this type of shooting so that those shooters can have a solid foundation upon which to continue building their advanced shooting skills. The Practice Range staff also maintains a binder of shooting drills which shooters can use to guide their practice sessions as they continue to build their skills.
The Action Pistol Practice Range is now open on 2nd and 4th Saturdays between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Join us to learn about this enjoyable shooting venue and about the ways in which you can improve your handgunning skills there.
