Bull's Eye Pistol League

Held Tuesdays at 7pm beginning in January. Pistol league consists of 10 National Match scores to be posted in time allotted finishing with a 900 Club Championship Match in April. (You do not need to have shot league to participate in the 900 Shoot.) A National Match course is 30 rounds fired at 3 targets (slow fire, timed and rapid) for a possible 300 points and 20X's. Cost is $20/members, $50/non-members.


Open Shoot

Held every Wednesday evening 7-9pm beginning in December and Sundays 2-4pm starting the third week in January. Acceptable weapons are limited to .22 caliber rim-fire rifles, rim-fire pistols and center-fire pistols with a maximum velocity of 1000 feet per second. Lead bullets only, no jacketed bullets. No center-fire rifles either due to the rating on our current backstop. Members are asked for donations to help with utility costs and non-members cost $10 per shooting adult per day; youth shoot free.


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. Their 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 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.


Sporting Clays/Trap

Held every Wednesday 5pm-dusk May-August at the FF Range. Sporting Clays is a 50 bird shoot at 8 stations that vary every week. Trap is 25 birds. All stations are easily accessible. Cost for Clays is $13/members, $15/non-members, $11/youth members, $13/youth non-members. Each purchased round can be put in a drawing for a free round. Trap cost is $3/members, $5/non-members. THE TRAP KIDS WORK FOR TIPS ONLY!


600 yard Long Range Rifle
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 $15. 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.

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.

United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA)
Practical shooting is a sport that evolved from experimentation with handguns used for self defense. The basic difference between IDPA and USPSA is 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 will measure a shooter's ability in each area. Each obstacle-laden shooting course (stage) requires anywhere from 6 to 32 shots to complete. Competitors move, negotiate obstacles, run and speed-reload through each of several stages as fast as their skills will allow. 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. (Don't forget the eye and ear protection!) Check the official USPSA website- 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) -beginning of November (again, weather permitting). Set up will begin at 8am. Registration can be done online at www.practiscore.com or at the range from 8:30-9:30am. 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. Text or call Ray Feger @920-410-3069 for questions or concerns.
 
Steel Challenge (SCSA)
This is a speed shooting competition governed by the Steel Challenge Shooting Association that consists of 8 standardized stages with steel targets in 3 sizes: small circular, large circular and square targets. Competitors are scored solely by the time it takes them to complete each stage. The match winner is the competitor with the lowest overall time. For more information, check out the steel challenge website at www.steelchallenge.com. 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 will be $20 for first gun, $10 for second gun; RRPC members/RO's will be $15 for first gun and $10 for a second gun. Contact is Bill Hatfield at bhatfield1@charter.net or text/call at 920-538-4178.

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 $15/members, $25/non-members. Contact is John Bordeau at 920-205-1897 or cginwi@yahoo.com.
 
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 growing so well. Participants get to dress up in period clothing as cowpokes, a saloon gal, or maybe even as a Rebel soldier and shoot their 6-shooters, lever action rifles (in pistol calibers) and 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 a blackjack table, the dentist's chair or the Fort. Fun and safety are the two main ingredients of a Cowboy Action Shooting Match. 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 so fast that you miss your targets! Your fellow posse members will be happy to give shooting tips as well as congratulations or good-natured ribbing. Their 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 day.
This event is held the third Saturday of every month at the Koro Rd. range from April-October. Sign up starts at 8am with a mandatory safety meeting at 9qm. Cost is $20/RRPC members, $22/non-members. Junior shooters aged 16 and younger are 1/2 price. Lunch is included after each match. Contact Joel Cler @920-748-2553 or jwmkc@charter.net or their own website www.riponcowboys.com.
 
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 and 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" ones--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 8:30am. If you can pre-register on www.practiscore.com, we can better plan ahead on how to set up the match. 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 rifle, though. Slugs and buckshot will occasionally be used, so don't forget to bring a few of them, too. Cost is $25. If you help set up the day before, your match fee is free. You can join our Facebook page: Ripon 3 gun for more information and any questions you may have. Contact Sean Wheeler 715-305-4685 or Adam Sievert 920-450-7551. Check the calendar for match dates.
