Intro to Competition

Competition is a great way to hone and improve your marksmanship skills. PCGC hosts monthly highpower (also called across-the-course, XTC) and mid-range (MR) prone matches. We would like you to join us or at least come out, watch a (portion of) a match, and come back and shoot with us. If there is enough interest, a “basics of competition” clinic can also be arranged.

The XTC matches are fired with either service rifles or match rifles. The course of fire is as follows: slow-fire standing at 200 yards, rapid-fire sitting at 200-yards, rapid-fire prone at 300 yards, and slow-fire prone at 600 yards. The following articles describe these types of rifles: Service Rifle Match Rifle

MR Prone matches are fired with service rifles, match rifles, tactical rifle, and F-class rifles. The latter two rifle types are described here: Tactical Rifle F-Class Rifle. The course of fire is slow-fire prone at 300, 500, and/or 600 yards.

PCGC also occasionally hosts smallbore rifle (.22) prone matches (50 yards) and bullseye (aka precision) pistol matches (25 and 50 yards). Be sure to check out the schedule of matches for currently planned events and check the homepage for new announcements.
