    Come on over and join the fun. Last Sundays match day was outstanding. We welcome any shooter with a good nature. Club rifle and club pistol are for anyone who does not want to shoot an NRA class. Maybe they want to try a scoped rifle on the larger targets? That is how we all start out. Maybe they have a rifle that has no NRA category , like an AR-22 with iron sights. Or its a way for dad or mom and the kids to get into the game without pressure to score big. But it is fun. Even I, whip out the 10/22 with tech sights (appleseed style) and shoot club rifle sometimes. We shoot from 9am to4pm. So there is plenty of time to warm up with a club class and work up to an offical class. Good luck!

  7. .22 Markmanship in the Memphis Area

    Tennesse Sports Foundation Jackson Tn is only about an hour east of Memphis. He would be more than welcome to shoot NRA smallbore Silhouette . We shoot every 3rd Saturday of the month. We have two more official NRA matches this year. Sept. Oct. If he wants to learn marksmanship skills then offhand competition is the way to go. I run the program. I will let him use my rifle for his first few match rounds. That way he can try it. See what equipment he may need. UPDATE Look what you went and started....... I am adding Air Rifle Silhouette to the Match Schedule every 3rd Saturday. This weeks match will be Paper Targets at standard distances. It will get me ready to set up for next years regular NRA Air rifle matches. SO you could. Shoot Air Rifle. Then step over to the next shooting position in the next match round and shoot .22Rimfire.

  9. Smallbore Metallic Silhouette Jackson: Season Begins

    Tennessee Sports Foundation Metallic Silhouette Report For the Match of 8/19/17 Where you there? It was HOT. I don't know if I will ever get used to that heat. But the winds where calm and the sun was bright so it was a great day for shooting Silhouette. We had a decent turn out this month with a few Foundation members joining us to shoot. It was also nice to see a few members stop be to visit and watch for a while. Our TWO winners for out NRA class matches where: *. RAY VEGA ,(Jackson ,Tn) won SmallBore Hunter Rifle. $25 Bass Pro gift Card * C. Eddington (Alabama) won Smallbore Cowboy Rifle. $25 Bass Pro gift Card Please note I owe both of you Match Winner Pins, I have them and I totally forgot..... Also note that Ray Vega scored high enough to move up to AA class in Hunter Rifle. Our first person to move up a class at TSF. We had 5 competitors in Smallbore Hunter. 3 in Smallbore Cowboy. 1 Standard Rifle and 1 pistol. With several “practice only” rounds shot during the match time. Don't forget to save the date for our next match on September 16, 2017.. Easy to remember, we are there every 3rd Saturday. Grab your favorite .22lr firearm and join the fun.

  11. Smallbore Metallic Silhouette Jackson: Season Begins

    Update: Tennessee Sports Foundation Silhouette matches are NRA approved! Our program get better and bigger each month. I am makeing the decision to keep the cost for all matches this year "Shoot all day for $5" Certainly the lowest cost way to start shooting sports! (Under 18 always free with compeeting adult) July match I will have Nra ScoreBooks available. Award pins are ordered. Per. the NRA , all matches already shot this year CAN be added to your official scores and I can back date them. So let me know if you need the paper work done. I remember some folks with good scores! To date. No 10 in a rows have been shot (We got to get some, stay steady folks! ) Last match we used an automated line call, and it worked out nice. Also I am going to request the club allow us more time to strech out the match later, due to popularity. Non members are always welcome on match day. ______ JC 1911 Re: HP Silhouette....... I am considering purchasing a set of full size swingers for practice. Maybe set up an informal HP day? I don't even have a rifle for that yet...... so still in planning stage. Also my air rifle is on the way, so are some tiny targets. Maybe over the winter we can add air rifle mornings to the Silhouette Saturday. That is my hope. See you there on the 3rd Saturday of every month. Tennesse Sports Foundation , Riverside Drive , Jackson,Tn

  14. Smallbore Metallic Silhouette Jackson: Season Begins

    I keep holding out hope that Chatanooga's program may re -start or be picked up by another club.... wishful thinking? That State Match was realy good. But there is oppertunity right there for some Smart club to contact folks about what it takes to get a program going. People just wanting a place to shoot.
  15. Smallbore Metallic Silhouette Jackson: Season Begins

    No other chapters. But, I will help any way I can if another range wants to start up Silhouette. Best case would be 3 clubs each once a month so we can shoot alot. TN needs more NRA matches not just in east Tn.
