This SATURDAY 3/16 is our monthly WCGC Five Stand Fun Shoot!

Five Stand is very similar to Sporting Clays in that a wide variety of targets are thrown. No two five-stand events are exactly alike.

There are five “stands” or stations to shoot from. There are 6 traps that throw targets in different presentations. Participants shoot in turn at each of the 5 stands and various combinations of targets are thrown from the traps.

There is a menu card that will advise the shooter of the sequence of targets and whether its a single, report or true pair.

Five Stand is a great way to get a Sporting Clays like experience in a small amount of space, with very little walking.

$7 Per Round Member / $11 Per Round Non-Member

We hope to see you there!!

The Wi******er Canyon Gun Club is proud to announce that South Coast Long Gunner is offering a discount to all Wi******er Canyon Gun Club members for their Practical Precision 101 Class on February 10/11, 2024.

In Practical Precision 101 students will explore the basic concepts behind long range shooting, and many times learn that they are far more capable than they previously thought. This class focuses on the theories behind ballistic calculation and wind effects, how to effectively use a ballistic calculator, and applying that data to the gun and verifying the results downrange. Proper shooting fundamentals will be covered and any adjustments that need to be made to the shooter or their equipment will be addressed. Steel targets will be engaged from 200-950 yards.

PRS-style shooting is a dynamic form of long range shooting competition involving multiple shooter positions, multiple targets set at varying distances, and stage time limits. Students will explore this concept, and learn basic organizational and mindset techniques to set themselves up for success behind the gun. Target acquisition and positional stability techniques will be covered in a variety of scenarios, as well as effective equipment management and efficient stage planning. Class ends with 3-4 timed PRS stages.

10% discount for WCGC members for the Practical Precision 101 Class on February 10/11, 2024! Also ask about pistol and carbine training which will be offered as private lessons only at this time.

The first giveaway deadline of 2024 has passed! We looked over all the answers from both Instagram and Facebook, and was the closest!! That impact was at 935 yards, resulting in a flight time of just under 1.5 seconds which explains the 3 second delay from shot to impact sound! Stay tuned for the next one!!
