Junior Basic Marksmanship

This class is for youth ages 8-13. Air rifles and ammunition are provided by sponsors. The first 4 weeks are mainly instructional with some practice shooting each time. The remaining 6-7 weeks are for scoring and earning badges and medals as their skills increase. Student's  scores carry over year after year allowing them to keep advancing. Class starts about the third week in January. We also welcome the students to shoot on the following Sundays from 12-2pm. Minimal cost of $15 per shooter is put towards a pizza party/award ceremony at the end of the course. Parents are welcome to stay and watch or to return at the end of class. Instructor is Jay Galica. He can be reached at (920)229-6291 or polish_jo@yahoo.com.

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)

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 or cginwi@yahoo.com. The official website is www.idpa.com.

United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA)

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  www.uspsa.org.

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 www.practiscore.com for monthly details of match and scores. Match Director for Fox Valley  USPSA is Scott Dorman @(920)229-9881 or sdorman@charter.net and for Ripon USPSA is Cory Tuchscherer @ (920)379-2073 or ctuchscherer@kundinger.com 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 Challenge website.  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 bhatfield1@charter.net or (920)538-4178.

3 Gun

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 (715)870-1320 or kalashnicomp@gmail.com. Check the Club Calendar for dates.

Single Action Shooting Society (SASS)

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 at jwcler@gmail.com.
