High Power Shooting in Austin, TX

Forum members from CenTex,

If any of you guys are interested in getting started in high power shooting, especially if you have any youngsters who expressed the desire to get into competition, we would love to have you come down to our range as our guests and maybe even join up though club membership is not required to shoot in matches. The range is here http://austinrifleclub.org/

If anyone is interested, sound off. We can help you get started with coaching, and loaner equipment

Though in the past I helped the AMU and CMP in the SDM training at Benning, sorry bud, we/I do not offer formal training. My offer is just as informal as it gets helping new shooters get through the basics of high power, my personal thing to get more people shoot high power matches.

what is high power shooting
is it super serious like everyone with a super serious face during the activity and yells at you when you make a mistake?

the extend of my rifle shooting is from indoor range to outdoor range at best of the west. trying out different position, so far I can successfully hit targets to 750y with my ebr benched. but thats with a scope so its not that difficult, getting there with my M1 garand but still need work on using the irons.

I might be interested.

Not at all. You won't find a more helpful and tolerant bunch than Nez and crew.
They only yell if you sweep them with a loaded rifle. ;-)

A big +1 on this one, you won't find finer gentlemen in the sport than Mr. Nez and crew

Heads up. Muzzle brakes are not allowed. If you want to shoot with a rifle with a muzzle brake, inform the Match Director. It's likely that he will accommodate by putting the shooter a couple of firing points away from the nearest competitor.

Thanks from Bamban

Wish I was close enough to swing by for some tips. I'd be hard pressed to fit into the 'younger' category, though.

Thanks from Bamban

Certainly interested, but can't make it this Sunday. Is this shoot on a regular schedule? I'd like to bring out my 14 yr old son, is the club OK with an underage guest?
Thanks,
Jay

We welcome new shooters, with emphasis to junior shooters, they are the future of the sport. Adult must accompany junior shooters. If you guys join the club you don't even have to worry just yet for a match conditioned ARs, ARC owns a half a dozen y'all can use. Just notify the match director ahead of time.

No, you can shoot a bolt gun, any gas gun, with scope or irons, I think no larger 35 caliber. Louie can chime in on the caliber limitation. Only working off my Droid can't check the rulebook with ease. Another thing is the muzzle brake as Louie mentioned already.

Rifles that are are mag fed unless you can load and shoot safety 10 rounds in 60 seconds in sitting rapid.

Shoot your M1A or M1, there are others on the line with those sticks.
