Practice Day?

Post by JKR on 7/6/2018, 3:57 pm

Looking at the NRA calendar, Monday is listed as "practice day". How does this work? Can you just go out and jump in on any empty bench or there a sign up? I'm thinking I wouldn't mind getting rid of a few 7's before the real thing.

Generally on the 100 range. I believe the routine is $5.00 for a practice match that involves a 10 minute slow fire in which you can fire any number of rounds you want. and then three strings of times and three strings of rapid. You can fire 15 rounds in each if you choose.

Here is how practice has been run previously, but everything might change this year.

It is un-squadded open practice. 2 or 3 of the ranges are open for practice starting at 7:30 (probably). They run repeated NMC's. There is no cost. You can take any open position, so you can shoot on your assigned position if it is open. There are no alibis, refires or scoring. I don't remember if it's a normal NMC or 4 TF and 4 RF strings targets like they do on the practice range the rest of the week. I am pretty sure you can shoot more or less than the prescribed number of shots and you can change guns as long as it is done safely, so you can sight in both your 22 and 45 on one 10 minute slow fire target.

Get your targets from the trailers and wait at the ready line. When the previous line is changing targets, the tower will call the next line forward to the 50 yard line. You may have to move to a different position after the first NMC if someone takes the same spot. If someone takes your position you can just move down the line to another position. I have never seen a full line in practice.

They run really slow, painfully slow sometimes. There may be only 3 or 4 NMC's between 7:30 and 11 am. They won't start another line after 11 or so. Practice is only in the morning. Revolver matches are in the afternoon.

See you on the line,
