Local Area Practice Days
Long Range (500 yard) Center Fire Practice Days at SIRAPC, Borden, Indiana
Good day to you!! We at the Southern Indiana Rifle & Pistol Club welcome any and all shooters to attend our Scheduled Long Range Centerfire Practice Days. We have scheduled alternating Wednesday mornings and afternoons all year long as Long Range Day. We will be shooting from the 500 yard and the 300 yard berms exclusively. The range will be reserved from 8:00 AM until 2:00 PM eastern time in the mornings, and from 2:00 PM till dark in the afternoons. A nominal fee of $5 per shooter is requested to help with pasters, targets, and other pit supplies.

If you would like to be added to my SHOOTER email list, please send me your email address and indicate that you would like to be placed on the SHOOTER list. This will get you on all of the emails that I send out regarding local shooting events.
If you have never pulled 'Pit Duty' before, do not be intimidated. It is an easy duty. There will be radio communication between the pits and the line. This assures the safety of all participants. As a shooter fires a round, the Target Puller will retract his target into the pits, spot the impact hole with a 3" spotter disc, or other suitable marker, score the target with a 6" scoring disc, and return the target to the fully exposed position. If the round is in the black part of the target, the spotter is placed with the White side out, and if the round is in the white portion of the target, the Black side of the spotter is turned out. This allows the shooter to visually locate the shot placement. This is the same system that is used in the Garand Matches, the F Class Matches, and the High Power Rifle matches. So, once you get accustomed to pulling and pasting, there will be no excuse for not entering one or more of the F Class matches or one of the High Power Rifle matches that are held here.
The shooter is not required to have each round spotted. If he wants to shoot for group, just tell the line officer and the Pit personnel will leave the target exposed for as long as the shooter wants. This allows the shooter to get on target with pit service and then shoot a group.
A shooter is not required to shoot at bulls eye targets. If you have a full size deer, crow, or groundhog target, that may also be posted.
