UPCOMING EVENTS AT CF&G
A new offering from the training team at Columbia Fish & game, the Basic Pistol Shooting class is a half-day course available at our club. This course is a half-day, 4-hour course. The cost is $80. This course is designed for every level shooter. If you’ve never touched a firearm or you shoot regularly, you will benefit from this course. To be clear, this is not an NRA affiliated or certified course, but rather a basic course designed to teach the fundamentals and safety rules for handling and shooting pistols.
This class is intended for all individuals regardless of previous shooting experience. During the course, a team of instructors will teach application of gun safety rules, range protocol, proper handling, loading and unloading procedures, application of pistol shooting fundamentals, stable shooting positions, and live fire.
The course will be held in the clubhouse, while the live fire module will be held on the pistol range (which will be closed during the class). You may bring your own pistol (of any pistol caliber) and ammunition for this class.
Go here to register for an upcoming class. Be sure to review the cancellation policy and terms & conditions before registering for a class.
Every Tuesday at 7:00 pm from Jan. 3rd to March 28th. You must attend 1 of the first 2 weeks to acquire an average score. League Scoring will start on January 17th and run for the next 10 weeks. March 28th will be a fun shoot where there will be games and prizes.
Who is it for?
Anyone who wants to learn how to shoot any type of bow, or anyone looking to improve his or her shooting skills. No previous archery knowledge required, but it would be helpful if you are able to hit a paper plate at 20 yards. You must bring your own equipment. You do not have to be a Columbia Fish & Game Member.
How does it work?
Each shooter will shoot 3 rounds of 15 arrows at a paper target at 20 yards. Each shooter will acquire an average score and try to improve his or her average each week. Teams will be set according to average. (Shooters may request who they would like to shoot with, and all efforts will be made to accommodate these requests.)
50/50 Drawing each week.
For each week of paid attendance, you will receive 1 ticket stub. On the last week of the league, a drawing will be done for the following prizes.
- 1st Prize: $75 Gift Card to Lancaster Archery Supply
- 2nd Prize $50 Gift Card to Lancaster Archery Supply
- 3rd Prize $25 Gift Card to Lancaster Archery Supply
