A back up gun is not required to shoot. You can shoot any legal IDPA handgun. These BUG matches are great for new shooters that want to see what action pistol shooting is about, as well as those who carry concealed. Set-up at 8:00AM, shooting @ 9:00 AM. For more info see Green River Gun Club's website: http://www.bggrgc.com/

  4. Thanks for all the help at the Night Match under some pretty difficult conditions. Scores are posted on the GRGC website: http://www.bggrgc.com/results/IDPA.html Congrats Todd.
  5. FYI, per "Evil MIke": Rifle magazines will be limited to 30 rounds maximum. Handgun magazines will be limited to 20 rounds maximum.
  6. The Green River Gun Club (GRGC) of Bowling Green KY will be hosting an "IDPA like" Night Match on Saturday September 22. Per match director "Evil Mike": For the night match as a last hurrah to my run as match director we will be doing a movie themed match this year recreating some of the classic gun battles from various movies and a gun battle that should have been in the Gremlins movie. Since the night match isn’t an IDPA legal match, I’m taking liberties to do what I want in relation to round count in the John Wick stage, requiring tactical sequence in the Tombstone stage, and giving out procedurals for every shot fired while not moving in The Matrix stage. 4pm setup 6:30pm mandatory shooters meeting (if you are not present for this meeting you will not shoot) Match will start once it gets dark This is mostly an IDPA-like match using mostly IDPA rules. You must have shot 2 regular IDPA matches at any club previously to be eligible to shoot this match. $20 match fee Weapon Categories: Pistol: *Hand Held Light *Weapon Mounted Light (must fit in holster with light attached) *Weapon Mounted Light/Laser (must fit in holster with light/laser attached) Side match for Rifle/PCC: (the rifle/PCC shooters will be mixed in with the squads and will shoot the stage after the pistol shooters and before moving to the next stage) *PCC (pistol caliber carbine) with weapon mounted light *Rifle with weapon mounted light All targets must be illuminated by the shooter prior to engaging the target. The pistol round count for this match is going to be 100 rounds minimum. The rifle round count for this match is going to be 75 rounds minimum. The match will be scored under the following assumptions: If the stage description calls for 1 round per target then 1 round anywhere on the target will count as zero down. If you miss the target it will be scored 5 down. If the stage description calls for 2 rounds per target then 2 rounds anywhere on the target will count as zero down. If you miss with one round it will be scored 5 down, a miss with both rounds will be scored as 10 down. If the stage description calls for 3 rounds per target then 3 rounds anywhere on the target will count as zero down. If you miss with one round it will be scored 5 down, a miss with two rounds will be scored as 10 down, a miss with three rounds will be scored as 15 down. If the stage description calls for 2 rounds to the body and 1 round to the head then each target must have 2 rounds anywhere in the body and 1 round anywhere in the head to be scored as zero down. Any missed body or head shots will be scored 5 points down for each miss. Yes we will really be shooting mini me targets with pistols on some of the stages. Yes there will be whining and complaining. Yes it will probably be a long running match, but where else can you spend $20 for hours of fun? Show up, shoot stuff, have fun……………. The stages are as follows: Bay 1 Stage 1 (Attack of the Gremlins) Bay 2 Stage 2 (Tombstone) Bay 3 Stage 3 (Django Unchained) Bay 4 Stage 4 (The Matrix) Bay 5 Stage 5 (John Wick’s House) Note Stage 5 round count is 39!
