Welcome to the Oconomowoc Sportsman’s Club Practical Rifle Program, where you’ll find realistic, and challenging courses of fire. There are few clubs anywhere with the facilities to put on a good rifle course, and fewer yet, with a group like “The Practical Rifle Gang”. From nostalgic WWII battle rifle courses, like the Stalingrad Match, where if you don’t have a suitable rifle, they will often provide one with ammo, to the infamous jungle runs, with targets hidden as close as a few yards, to a few further out that you may be able to spot, but will you have the skill to hit, or neutralize as they say. This is the most fun you can have with a rifle.
We ask that you keep your rifle cased, and magazines unloaded when you’re called to the line. Listen to the Range Officer for instructions. You will be asked to tape or help score for the next shooter, or two.
The cost is $15. Re-shoots are usually available for $5.
Usually, a Conceal and Carry Weapon (CCW) side match is held concurrently on the same day as Practical Rifle. Click here for more information.
