Hope everyone enjoyed the FL State Championship. It was as awesome event that went off without a hitch even with some challenging weather.
Busy weekend here at USA as if that is something new. This Saturday we will have 3 Gun and DPL together! Awesome day of shooting if you want to do both. Weather looks on the cool side but sunny! Pack a lunch and shoot both matches.
5 Stages of fun. Looking at a couple or 3 of the shorter 3GN style stages, one or two medium stages and the rifle range. Inside 300 this month on the rifle with some positional work.
100 rifle, 100 pistol, 50 bird and 5 slug will do ya.

DEFENSIVE PISTOL LEAGUE (DPL)
Excited to have DPL back in action. If you have never shot our DPL match it is a great opportunity to practice with your real carry gear, practice for IDPA, get started in competition or practical shooting….or just come shoot some for fun. There is a division and place for everyone and everygun!
We will have 5 stages this month with about 50 rounds.

WANNA SHOOT BOTH MATCHES SATURDAY
If you’d like to shoot both matches, special fee is $30 for both. You’ll have to shoot 3 Gun first at normal starting time of 0930. We will restart the DPL match 30 minutes after 3 Gun completes. So pack a lunch, grab a bite, regun up and lets go again! I’m planning on shooting both.
If you’d like to shoot DPL more than once, also special fee of $30. You may restart upon completion of the first DPL match as it will be done way before us 3 gunners get done. You will have to have 3-4 people on a squad that want to shoot again. I’ll explain more during the walkthrough Saturday.
Practice will be very limited availability this month. No plate racks available, no tac bay, rifle range only from the pond (400 max yds), limited pistol bays available due to 2 matches going on and other reasons (see other reasons below). But if you need some practice on limited bays or chrono or something we will have it available for normal $10 extra.
We are opening for memberships this week. There will be much more information available coming soon. Primarily more of a static line type offering but we are looking at a special membership for vetted competitors to basically do what we do on after match practices whenever you want with some restrictions on bays and days pending other events on the range and classes.
This is important for Saturday as you may see other people out there. They have a special area to shoot towards the south end of the range. Obviously be courteous ( I know you will) as they will be curious what the crazy people running around with guns are doing. Just explain you are here for competition and direct them to the website as to how to get involved.
NO VEHICLES ON THE RANGE. You will see new traffic controls on the range. Please park in the parking lots and leave your vehicles there. If you have a ATV, Golf Cart or similar they are still permitted. 10MPH limited on the property please.
Shaping up to be one of the biggest yet. Still room in the match, you can sign up via MatchSignUp. I will have a staff email going out this week if you have applied for staff. Website will be updated this week with schedule. Stages and match book next week.
Registration and website will be updated and open by the end of the month.
