The DSC also runs an informal indoor service rifle practice
league during the winter months. Check the DSC calendar for
dates and times. This indoor practice league does not qualify
for NRA/CMP awards. The course of fire is the same as the
highpower league using reduced size Service Rifle targets
for 50 feet. The league is shot with 22LR conversions for
AR-15 platform rifles or any other any rifle firing the 22LR
Shooters need not join the league to come out and shoot the
course of fire, but league shooters will be given preference
if we have a full line. Range Fees are payable prior to each
match/practice. A league fee is also due prior to the start
of the season. An additional league fee is charged for an
Associate Member. Print, complete and submit Rifle League
Application Form with the appropriate league fees. The league
fee covers the league banquet with door prizes. The Banquet
is normally held the first Saturday in December.
A competitor's last 10 record matches shot are for DSC League
score and standings for awards. Awards will be based on the
Lewis System. A shooter must shoot 10 matches to qualify for
awards. For NRA Classification, scores from the last 6 matches
shot for score will be submitted to the NRA for classification.
If a competitor doesn't fire 10 matches for score, the last
6 matches fired will be utilized for NRA classification. Scores
are submitted to the NRA for classification at the end of
the league. All league targets must be completed during the
course of one (1) league season. Competitors who want the
NRA/CMP awards will have to order the required awards from
the NRA/CMP at their own expense.
Once a year in June the DSC
also offers a 2-day Service Rifle Clinic. It is a great way
to learn the basics of NRA/CMP highpower competition, including,
the course of fire, positions, targets, service rifle operation,
loading, clearing and firing. Keep an eye on the calendar
for dates and times.
