Summer Pistol League

Every Monday, starting on May 8th through September 25th The Tewksbury Rod & Gun Club will be holding a Bullseye competition at our 50 foot indoor range.  These matches are open to the public, membership is not required.

This semi-formal setting is a great way to become accustomed to the calls used on the firing line, and to learn how to score targets. 

This competition is intended to get new shooters involved in the sport, as well as maintaining the edge during the long summer break for the experienced Bullseye competitor.

Shooters may compete in rimfire (.22 cal), centerfire, or both.  There is a nominal fee of $2.00 for one match or $3.00 for both matches.  The shooter competes against his/her own average, so everyone has a chance to win. The League will provide the targets, however the shooter must bring their own ammunition.

Each shooter gets one point for shooting each night, and additional points are awarded for first through fourth place for each night.  At the end of the season an awards banquette is held to honor those who persevered.

The Ranger Officer calling the match will enforce all range and safety rules.  These matches typically start around 6:00 pm and the last relay typically goes off around 7:45 pm (depending on the number of shooters who show up on a given night).
