5th Saturday August Match

August 29, 2015
Hammer Down at 8:30 am

This  Match will be a USPSA style Match.  Robert Powell is our MD, and we hear that he's doing this match as a "tune up" for the Area 4 Championship on September 3rd. That means that you should bring your running shoes, plenty of ammo, coffee, your favorite energy drink, or chocolate, for that extra "Hang In There With Robert" BOOST!

There will be lots of running and gunning ... and lots of targets too.  Maybe plan on bringing 400 rounds just in case you want to shoot some stages twice!  (Yes, I'm kidding! Nobody's going to want to shoot any of the stages twice!)

Sign up starts at 7:30 am, shooters meeting at 8:15 am ... and Hammer down is going to be at 8:30 am sharp!

New shooters please be there by 7:15 for the safety briefing.

Online Sign up will close Friday Aug 28th at 8:00 pm.

Come help with setup.

Setup at 2:30 pm on Friday.

TTS Weekly Practice Matches

September 2 & 3, 2015
Hammer Down at 6:30 pm

Make plans to join Thunder Tactical Shooters IDPA club on every Wednesday or Thursday (or both) for one of our weekly IDPA 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!

Each stage commonly requires shooting twelve (12) rounds and will often include your need to reload, shoot at targets while moving, shooting around barricades or barrels, or other skills that challenge most shooters.

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 usually has a total of five pre-planned stages that provide 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.

September Monthly Match

Saturday, September 12,8:30 am
The September Monthly Match is scheduled to be an IDPA match.  The Match Director is Greg Winkler who has been planning this match for most of the summer ... so look out!

Six stages of fun ... 109 rounds of fun ... and we will probably see some steel targets and/or moving targets. That's always fun - and it's good practice too!

Setup is the Friday before at 9:00 am. (to beat the heat) and if you help with setup, you get to shoot on Saturday for free!  FREE!
