.22 Silhouette League (.22 Rim-fire Rifle Only)

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. A National Match course is 30 rounds fired at 3 targets (slow fire, timed and rapid) for a possible 300 points and 20 X's. Cost is $20/members, $50/non-members.

Open Shoot

Every Wednesday evening 7-9pm and Sundays 2-4pm (starting January 24th, 2016). 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, please. No center-fire rifles, either, due to the rating on our current backstop. Members are asked for donations to help with heating costs; non-members, $10 per shooting adult per night; youth shoot free.

Junior Basic Marksmanship

This class is open to the public--all youth ages 8-13. Air rifles and ammunition are provided. The first 4 weeks are instructional with practice and the following 6-7 weeks are for applying what the shooters have learned and recording scores to earn badges and medals as their skill increases. This advancement carries over year after year. Class starts about the third Thursday of January. Due to popularity, a second class time on Sundays from 12-2pm was added. 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 their child's class.

THE TRAP KIDS WORK FOR TIPS ONLY!

USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association)

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 all three areas. To do this, shooters take on obstacle-laden shooting courses (called stages) requiring anywhere from 6 to 30+ shots to complete. Competitors move, negotiate obstacles, run, and speed-reload through each of several courses as fast as their skills will allow. There are competitive divisions for most handguns-from revolvers to scope-sighted, recoil-compensated "race guns" developed just for this sport. For more information, check out the official USPSA website: www.uspsa.org

Fox Valley Practical Shooters use the County Road FF Range the first Saturday of each month. Ripon USPSA shoots the 4th Saturday of each month. They shoot March (weather permitting)-October. Set up will begin at 8am. Registration can be done online or at the range from 8:30-9:30am. Match begins at 10:00am. Shooting is usually done by 1-2pm. Cost is $25. RRPC members or those that help with setup/take down are $20. Juniors to age 21 are $15. See www.wisconsinshooters.com for monthly details of match and scores.

IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association)

Held the second Saturday of every month April-October. Sign up starts at 8am, with a mandatory safety meeting at 8:45am. Matches start about 9am and usually run until 1-2pm. Ear and eye protection are required. Cost is $15 for members of RRPC and $25 for non-members.

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 open to any "SAFE" shooter--of all ages, abilities, and with skill levels from Novice to Master. Anyone is welcome to come and watch with proper ear and eye protection. So bring the family with you. We have a growing number of wives, sons and daughters shooting matches and we would like to see that number continue to increase. You will need very little in the way of equipment: (1) A serviceable handgun of at least 9mm/.38 special or larger caliber; (2) At least 3 magazines or speed loaders; (3) A strong side hip holster; (4) Eye and ear protection; (5) 100 rounds of ammunition; (6) Match fee; & (7) a good attitude and a willingness to have FUN!

SASS (Single Action Shooting Society)

Held the third Saturday of every month April-October. Sign up starts at 8am with a mandatory safety meeting at 9am. Hearing and eye protection are required. Cost is $20 for RRPC members and $22 for non-members. Junior shooters aged 16 and younger are 1/2 price. Lunch is included.

As an affiliate of the Single Action Shooting Society, the Ripon Rifle & Pistol Club has been hosting monthly Cowboy shoots since April 2000. Anyone who has ever dreamed of being a cowboy or cowgirl will recognize why this sport is growing so fast. Participants get to dress up as cowpokes and shoot their 6-shooters, lever action rifles 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, or even dressed in a bonnet and apron. 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 to not go so fast that you begin missing targets. Your fellow posse members will be happy to give shooting tips as well as congratulations or good-natured ribbing, depending on how you do! There are several different classes of shooters as designated by SASS. There are classes for ladies, black powder shooters, and duelist (shooting one-handed), traditionalist (two-handed), and gunfighters. All cowpokes carry revolvers in their holsters and shoot lever action rifles (in pistol calibers) and shotguns. 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 fun-filled Saturday.

3 Gun

Matches will begin after 8:30am set up. Cost is $25. These matches will be held at the Cty. Rd FF Range. More information at: www.wisconsinshooters.com.

600 yard Long Range

600 Yard Long Range shooting is scheduled during the summer months. We shoot for the fun of it. Participants may shoot from a prone position or off a bench. We shoot 20 rounds per person and all participants will take their turn in the target pit spotting and marking hits.  Cost is $15.00. Shoots are always informal and friendly and an excellent way to practice shooting rifles at long distance. If you wish to keep a score, we will provide you with a score sheet. New shooters wishing to learn and practice are encouraged to join us as there are always experienced shooters willing to help. 
Cost is $15.

Ripon Rifle and Pistol Club members may also shoot long range at other times but must move the sawhorse into the driveway at the bottom of the hill to give any arriving members warning that someone is shooting across the range. We ask that you work with others also wishing to use the range. It is suggested that pistol shooters use the new range on S. Koro Rd.                     

Zombie Shoot


There are new loading benches for each shooting bay. Three people max should be at the loading table. You will load all your firearms needed for that stage and keep all your guns on the table. While at the table, magazines can be placed in your guns, but nothing can be in the chamber. You must also stay with your guns. If you need to walk away from the table, all guns must remain on the table. When the timer operator calls "next shooter", you will holster your handgun and carry your long guns to the shooting table(s). After shooting, shooter will clear all guns before leaving stage. (Exception: single action revolvers to be unloaded at unloading table and checked clear before proceeding to cart.) We will NO LONGER ALLOW loading guns on the line or at your gun cart. This applies to all guns. All guns will now be loaded at the Loading Tables. Magazines can be loaded wherever you need to as long as they are not placed in your guns until you get to the loading table.

Remember--Our Zombie Shoots are an introduction to safe and fun competition shooting. They are designed for new and experienced shooters.
