THE TRAP KIDS WORK FOR
600yd Long Range Shooting
This event is scheduled during the summer months at the FF
range. We shoot for the fun of it. Participants may shoot from a prone or
bench position. We shoot 20 rounds per person and all participants will
take their turn in the target pit spotting and marking hits. Cost is $20.
Shoots are always informal and friendly and an excellent way to practice
shooting rifles at long distance. If you wish to keep score, we will
provide you with a score sheet. New shooters are encouraged to join us as
we have experienced shooters always willing to help. Match Director is
Dennis Krause and he can be reached at (920)290-2499. Leave a
voicemail if you wish to receive a call back.
Check the Club Calendar for dates. All shoots start at noon.
Ripon Rifle & Pistol Club members may also shoot long range
at other times but must move the sawhorse at the bottom of the
hill into the driveway to alert arriving members that someone
is shooting across the range. We ask that you work with other
members wishing to use the range. Anyone wishing to shoot
200yd or less may skip over to the Koro range now.
***Shooting is now allowed from 8am on weekdays and 8:30am on
weekends. 50 cal. BMG will be allowed on weekends only
(Saturday/Sunday)! Exceptions are Police/Tactical Units. NO
incendiary or Tracer or Armor Piercing ammo!
International Defensive Pistol Association
IDPA emphasizes the use of practical equipment to solve simulated
"real life" scenarios. The main goal of IDPA is to test the skills and ability of the individual
shooter. Shooters are broken down into skill levels, so
shooters compete against others of equivalent skill. These
matches are for any "SAFE" shooter--all ages, abilities
and with skill levels from Novice to Master. Spectators
are welcome, so bring the family. We have a growing number
of wives, sons and daughters shooting matches and we would
like to see that number continue to increase. Equipment
needed: a serviceable handgun of at least 9mm/.38 special
or larger caliber; at least 3 magazines or speed loaders;
a strong side holster; at least 100 rounds of ammunition;
match fee; and a willingness to learn and have fun!
Matches are held the second Saturday at the Koro Rd range
from April-October. Sign up starts at 8am with a mandatory
safety meeting at 8:45. Matches start about 9am and run
into the mid-afternoon. Cost is
$25. Match Director is John Bordeau and he can
be reached at 920-205-1897

United States Practical Shooting
Practical shooting is a sport that evolved from
experimentation with handguns used for self defense. USPSA has slightly
different rules and longer rounds. Like IDPA, it attempts to measure the
ability to shoot rapidly and accurately with a full power handgun, rifle,
and/or shotgun. Those three elements-speed, accuracy and power form the
three sides of the practical shooting triangle. By design, each match
measures a shooter's ability in each area. Competitors move, negotiate
obstacles, run and speed-reload through stages as fast as they can.
Typical matches have 6-7 stages and require 160-200 rounds of ammunition.
There are 8 competitive divisions for handguns and pistol caliber
carbines. Spectators are welcome. The official USPSA website is
Fox Valley Practical Shooters and Ripon USPSA shooters use
the Koro Rd range the first and fourth Saturdays beginning end of March
(weather permitting) through the beginning of November (again, weather
permitting). Registration begins at 9am. Pre-registration can be done online at
www.practiscore.com. A safety meeting is held
before each shoot. Cost is $25, RO $20, juniors to age 21
and RRPC members are $15. See
for monthly details of match and scores. Match Director for
Fox Valley USPSA is Scott Dorman @(920)229-9881 or email@example.com
and for Ripon USPSA is Cory Tuchscherer @ (920)379-2073 or firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or concerns.
Steel Challenge (SCSA)
This is a speed shooting competition governed by the
Steel Challenge Shooting Association, a USPSA organization, that
consists of 8 standardized stages with steel targets in 3 sizes: small
circular, large circular and square. Competitors are scored solely by the
time it takes to complete each stage. The match winner is the competitor
with the lowest overall time. For more information, go to the Steel
There are several matches scheduled throughout the summer. Check the club
calendar for dates. Registration will begin at 9am at the Koro Rd. Range,
shooter's safety meeting at 9:45am and the range will go hot at 10am. Cost
is $25 for the first gun, $10 for the second gun. RRPC members, RO's will
be $15 for first gun and $10 for the second gun. Match Director is Bill
Hatfield and he can be reached at
email@example.com or (920)538-4178.
This action-packed multi-gun competition is one of the
fastest growing shooting sports in the country right now. Competitors use
3 different firearms--a modern sporting rifle, a pistol and a shotgun.
Matches involve courses where the shooter must move through different
stages ad engage targets in a variety of different positions. Each stage
will generally require the use of different firearms and require the
shooter to transition between them. Targets might include clay pigeons,
cardboard silhouettes, steel targets of different sizes and anything else
the match director designates as a target. Distances of the targets vary.
The shooter who hits the most targets--and avoids certain "no shoot"
targets--in the least amount of time is the winner. Each club may alter
the rules somewhat, but the ability to adapt them for specific matches is
what makes 3 Gun competition so dynamic and exciting. Just as it is with
the practical pistol matches, 3 Gun simulates combat or self-defense
situations. A stage provides a certain scenario for using one or more of
the guns in a specific sequence. This allows every stage of each match to
be just that much different than any you've shot before. Our matches are
held at the Koro Rd. Range with registration beginning at 8:00am.
Pre-registration is preferred and can be done on
www.practiscore.com. This gives a
better opportunity to plan stages and set up. A mandatory safety meeting
will be after registration. If you do not attend this meeting, you will
not be allowed to shoot the match. 150 rounds of ammunition for each gun
is recommended, no steel core ammunition for the rifles, though. Slugs and
buckshot will occasionally be used, so be prepared and have some along as
well. Cost is $30. Match fee is waived if you help at set up the day
before. Match Director is Todd Cibulka and he can be reached at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Check the Club Calendar for dates.
Single Action Shooting Society
We have been hosting this event since April 2000.
Anyone who has ever dreamed of being a cowboy or cowgirl will recognize
why this sport is so much fun. Participants dress up in period clothing as
cowpokes, saloon girls, or maybe as a Rebel soldier and shoot their
6-shooters, lever action rifles (in pistol calibers) or shotguns at metal
targets in a scene from the Old West. You may get to shoot from an
outhouse, through the bars of a jail window, from the blackjack table, the
dentist's chair or the Fort. Fun and safety are the 2 main ingredients of
a SASS shoot. Events are timed--the faster you shoot, the better you
score. However, each target missed will add 5 seconds to your score. So
the trick is not to go too fast! Your fellow posse members will be happy
to give shooting tips as well as congrats or good-natured ribbing. There
are several different classes of shooters as designated by SASS. There are
divisions for ladies, black powder shooters, duelists (shooting one
handed), traditionalists (two handed) and gunfighters. All weapons must be
copies of guns made before 1910, the end of the cowboy era. Most of our
shooters acquire their gear and guns a little at a time as they go along.
After all, it's the Cowboy Way to share and we're always happy to share
with new cowboys and cowgirls. C'mon out and join Doc Bonecutter, One
Shot, Dirty Deeds, Ambush and the rest of the Liberty Prairie Regulators
for a fun-filled shooting experience.
This event is held the 3rd Saturday of each month from
April-October at the Koro Rd. range. Sign up starts at 8am with a
mandatory safety meeting at 9am. Cost is $20 for RRPC members, $22 for
non-members, junior shooters aged 16 and younger are 1/2 price. Lunch is
included after each match. Match Director is Joel Cler. He can be reached
