Anne Arundel Fish and Game Association, the Twelfth Precinct Pistol Club, and the Maryland State Rifle & Pistol Association are hosting an introductory bullseye pistol clinic at the Anne Arundel Fish and Game Association range in Annapolis on 4–5 April, 2020. This clinic will teach you everything you need to know to get started in the great sport of bullseye pistol shooting.
Each day will include classroom instruction and several hours of range time with experienced shooters helping you to develop and refine your technique. You will come away from this clinic with the training you need to participate in bullseye matches, all the bullseye instructional materials you will ever need, and a plan for continuing to improve your skills. Although this clinic is designed primarily for shooters with little or no experience in bullseye competition, marksman and sharpshooter class bullseye shooters are welcome and will have the opportunity to improve their skills and learn from some of the best bullseye shooters in Maryland.
What to Expect
Saturday morning will begin with talks on firearms safety, the basic rules of bullseye competition, and an introduction to the fundamentals of pistol marksmanship. We will then proceed to the range for orientation and slow fire practice. After a break for lunch, we will resume with discussions of bullseye equipment and an introduction to reloading, and then return to the range for sustained fire practice. All classroom sessions will include plenty of time for questions, and during range time you will work one-on-one with an experienced coach. Sunday will be devoted entirely to additional range time, allowing you to pull together all that you have learned over the weekend. Shooters will leave with a good understanding of how to compete and succeed in bullseye pistol matches. Note: All shooting will be done with .22 pistols only!
The fee is $65.00, or $15.00 for juniors (ages 16–20), and includes all instruction, course materials, and lunch both days.
Minimum age to participate is 16. Participants under 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (parent or guardian need not participate).
