Rimfire Challenge Shooting Association
Comes to Thunder Tactical Shooters Club

Saturday, June 30, 2018
Shooter's Meeting at 8:15 am
The fifth Saturday in June is our inaugural RCSA match.  We had so much fun with a recent .22 rimfire match, that we were encouraged to look into RCSA.  It turns out that this is a chance to get everyone in th family involved in a fun event.

According to RCSA, "... experienced participants are encouraged to help new and novice shooters move up to the next level of proficiency by sharing their tips and shooting knowledge.  This low-key competition reminds participants that the shooting spores are lifetime activities that are fun and affordable for men, women, and youth."

We will have a total of five stages.  3 are pistol stages while 2 are rifle stages. it's okay if you only have one or the other as you can shoot all five stages with one kind of gun.  But note that the RCSA program is a multi-gun match (pistols and rifles) so shooting a rifle stage with a pistol could put you at a disadvantage (why cares, it's shooting)!

Particulars - 5 shots per pistol string, 5 strings per stage; 6 shots per rifle string, 5 strings per stage.  Match Director - Stephen Kay.
Thunder Tactical Shooters is a nonprofit organization of private individuals that hosts defensive pistol competitions for the enjoyment of IDPA members in Southeast, Texas.  Whether you just purchased your first handgun or you've owned one for years (but never competed) you are welcome to join us!

TTS Weekly Practice Matches

Wednesday & Thursday Evening
June 27 & 28, 2018

Hammer Down at 6:30 pm

Just Shoot Fast!

Make plans to join Thunder Tactical Shooters on Wednesday or Thursday (or both) for one of our weekly practice matches. This is your chance to practice the basic skills required to safely and accurately shoot your defensive handgun.  It's also a big bunch of fun!

Practice matches involve breaking into 8-10 person "squads" and shooting each of five separate stages/scenarios.  Each stage/scenario cusually requires 12-24 rounds and will often include your need to reload, shoot at targets while moving, shooting around barricades or barrels, or other skills that challenge the shooter.

New (or first-time) shooters MUST arrive by 6 pm for a New Shooter's Orientation.  TTS staff will review stage designs, the range commands, safety topics, and other issues that you'll confront in the weekly match.

The weekly match is one reason that "practical shooting" is the MOST FUN you can have shooting at paper targets at any gun range!  Don't miss out!  Register at the MATCH SIGNUP graphic at the top of this page.
