War Rifle Match Results - 12/9/17

FXRGX sealDecember 13, 2017 - The War Rifle Match was one heckuva day! Only the bravest came to this one! The snow was predicted and came; all the day. Temperature was a balmy 33 degrees when the match began and around 28 the rest of the day. There is nothing like being cold and not being able to get enough warmth in your body to not be cold for a few minutes. Some sat in a warm car for a few minutes but found that wasn’t useful because they had to get back out on the line to shoot again before heat returned. So we all were cold all the day.

The Hero of the day was ...

Final High Power Match - 2017

Small FXRGC sealDecember 13, 2017 - The next (and last of 2017) monthly match is this coming saturday on Benson range.  Click here for match announcement.
 
The match will be run as an 80 shot match per the announcement for those wishing to shoot that format.  However this is a fun match.  As always feel free to bring whatever you have and design your own course of fire.  You may shoot fewer rounds than called for in the program or substitute one stage for another (for example shoot a second stage of standing while everyone else is shooting slow fire prone).
 
Bring a stapler for attaching targets to backers.  Dress warmly.  Come and have fun!
 
For the gate code, contact high.power@fxrgc.org.  See you there.

[UPDATE] Fairfax Highpower Spring League

Small FXRGC sealDecember 2nd, 2017 - A slight change to the previously published dates:  The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) just published a revised schedule for the Eastern CMP Cup and CMP Games.  For those not aware, this is a HUGE match and a goodly number of our HP shooters attend religiously.  Unfortunately that revised schedule presents a conflict with Spring League match 2 (Apr 27 and 28).  So we're moving match 2 to the previous weekend (Apr 21 and 22).
 
So the spring league schedule is now:
Mar 17, 2018 - work/shoot
Apr 7/8 - match 1
Apr 21/22 - match 2
May 5/6 - match 3
May 19/20 - match 4
 
The calendar on the Fairfax RGC web site has been ammended to show these dates.
 
Regards,
Dan Gray

Top Gun Challenge has begun!

August 26th, 2017 - The 2017 Top Gun Challenge (TGC) has begun!


TGC rewards mastery of four types of military rifles: AR15, M14/M1a, M1, and 1903 Springfield each year in August, September, October, and November respectively.


The first match (AR15) of the 2017 TGC was fired on Aug 19. Mr Jack McKinney, club member and long time HP shooter was the winner with a near perfect score of 497-21X out of a possible score of 500-50X.

Jack holds a NRA Master classification and has participated numerous times with the Virginia Rifle Team at the National Matches, where he contributed to several national level team wins. He is also a multiple winner of the Presidents 100 honors and is a CMP Distinguished Rifleman.

Congratulations to Jack on an outstanding performance!

TGC is but one of the offerings in the high power program. Spring League (March/April), is an NRA sanctioned 4 match series. NRA sanctioning allows the shooters to earn or advance an NRA classification. Monthly (Jan/Feb/April/May/Jun/Jul/Dec), non NRA sanctioned matches are also fired.

All matches consist of an NRA or CMP course of fire from four positions: standing, sitting rapid fire, prone rapid fire, and prone slow fire. In all club sponsored High Power matches shooters need not be a club member to participate. Nor do they need to be an NRA or state association member, although membership is highly encouraged. Tell your family and friends.

For more info on the high power program contact the match director, Dan Gray, dtgray@verizon.net.
