    Holyoke Revolver Club 

    Fun Shoots


    Fun Shoots at the Holyoke Revolver Club are held bi-weekly and brought to you by

    our “Director of Fun”, Dave Sparko.

    The shoots are held at either the Indoor Range or behind the Clubhouse at the 50yd. Covered Line.

     

    During the winter months, (October, November, December, January, February, and March) The Shoots take place at the Indoor Range.

    Participants may use handguns chambered in .22LR only.

    The course of fire is a head to head competition, using two sets of falling steel plates and one dueling tree.

    Objective: Have FUN while you knock down your 5 falling plates and send your two dueling tree targets to your opponent’s side before he or she has a chance to send them back.

    Scoring is done in the round robin format.

    Suggested equipment: A .22LR, rimfire, semi-automatic pistol with two magazines or a revolver with one speedloader can certainly be successfully used as well. (No centerfire)

    Approximately 125 rounds of ammunition.

    Setup is at 6:30, FUN begins promptly at 7:00 and will run to completion, usually around 8:30-9:00. Due to the scoring format participants must be signed up and ready to shoot at 7:00.

    If you don’t have all the equipment just bring plenty of 22 ammo and someone will be more than willing to loan you theirs.

     

    During the summer months, (April, May, June, July, August, and September) The shoots are held outdoors at the 50 yd Covered Line.

    Summer event times:

    April – Setup at 5:00 shoot till 7:00

    May, June, July, August – Setup at 5:00 shoot till 7:30

    September – Setup at 5:00 shoot till 7:00

    Participants may use rimfire or centerfire handguns, rimfire rifles, and pistol caliber carbines.

    The course of fire is generally two of the Steel Challenge stages, consisting of 5 steel plates varying in size and location.

    Objective: Have FUN while shooting all five plates as fast as you can, in any order as long as you shoot the designated stop plate last.

    Each “turn” consists of 5 strings or “tries”.

    Scoring is total time registered on an electronic shot timer.

    Suggested equipment: Any rimfire or centerfire pistol or revolver, rifle chambered .22LR, or a pistol caliber carbine. Five magazines or speed loaders would be optimal but 3 will do.

    Approximately 100 rounds of ammunition. NO magnum ammunition.

    Setup is at 5:00, FUN begins immediately after, if you show up a little late that’s fine but the signup sheet is by order of arrival.

    If you don’t have all the equipment just bring plenty of ammo and someone will be more than willing to loan you theirs.
