    Shoot often, shoot late, shoot centerfire on Sundays.
    Mark your calendars now so you don’t miss an opportunity to spend the whole day (or the whole weekend) at the range.

    We only get 6 of these weekends a year so make the most of them.

Non-members are able to participate with prior coordination via aafg@verizon.net.

      The AR15 Rifle matches will follow a slightly modified Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) protocol for the CMP Games rifle matches with match courses of fire consisting of either 30 rounds fired in each of three phases.  Phases are Prone Slow fire and Offhand/Standing slow fire, and Standing to Prone rapid fire. Competitors who are unable to quickly get into the prone or sitting/kneeling position from standing may begin shooting from the prone position. They just cannot fire their first shot until a competitor going from a standing start has fired the first shot. For those who have not done any position shooting previously we can offer a brief training/practice session prior to the match if novices at position shooting show up 30-45 min prior to the match (email aafg@verizon.net a few days prior to the match to advise that such instruction is desired).

        • To compete effectively in the Standing to Prone rapid fire relay, shooters should bring at least two magazines holding not more than 20 rd.
        • All targets are SR-1 standard military targets reduced in size for 100 yd shooting.

      Beginning in January 2012, the Vintage Rifle matches will follow a slightly modified Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) protocol for the CMP Games rifle matches with match courses of fire consisting of either 30 (Course A) or 50 (Course B) rounds. Positions are Prone slow fireand Offhand/Standing slow fire, Standing to Prone rapid fire, and Standing to Sitting/Kneeling rapid fire.
