    Exclamation IMPORTANT NOTICE: AR-15 "Pop-Up" Target, Oct. 20, 2018 (Camp Atterbury)

    IMPORTANT NOTICE:
    Due to a soon-to-be-deployed Army unit requiring use of our originally scheduled range, we have had to slightly alter the schedule for this event. Instead of having the AR-15 "Pop-Up" Target range (Range 14) for the entire day, we will now have that range in the morning (0800 to 1200) and will have the Pistol "Pop-Up" Target range (Range 10) for the afternoon (1300 to 1700).

    We believe this makes for an EVEN BETTER EVENT as you will get to shoot on both the rifle and pistol qualification ranges at Camp Atterbury! The Army worked with us to accommodate both the unit requiring use of Range 14 and our needs and this the best solution that presented itself. In the end, it is a US Army range and their legitimate military needs take precedence over our civilian use of the range.

    All those who have already purchased a ticket should have received an email noting this change. Please read the updated event listing (Camp Atterbury AR-15 and Pistol “Pop-Up” Target (Camp Atterbury, IN)) for details on equipment you will need for the pistol portion of the event. We will be allowing qualified persons to draw from a holster on the pistol range; firing positions are stationary, though. You MUST have a quality holster subject to the restrictions listed in the event description and you must satisfactorily demonstrate your technique to us with a cleared pistol before you are allowed to proceed to live fire. In other words, please don't show up and expect to draw from the holster if you haven't been trained in doing so safely.

    That said, the pistol portion may be shot from the high/low ready if you haven't been trained in a safe draw from the holster and/or do not wish to use a holster.

    Finally, we have moved up the morning meeting time slightly to 7:45AM to maximize our time on the AR-15 "Pop-Up" Target range as we must relinquish the range at 1200 so the Army unit deploying overseas can qualify on their rifles (we weren't kidding that this is the exact range that the US Army uses for their rifle qualification).

    Are there restrictions on pistols and do we have to pre-register those too?

    Short answer: no, you don't need to list your pistol make/model/serial.

    When we were down at Camp Atterbury on Tuesday to work out the scheduling issues, we specifically asked about pistol make/model/serial. Apparently, Atterbury no longer requires a list of firearms (rifle or pistol) being brought onto base. I'm not sure when that policy changed, but we have had to supply make/model/serial for previous events. The ticket purchase form will still ask for make/model/serial for your rifle (changing that at this point is a PITA), so feel free to ignore that as well (enter "n/a" or some such).

    I have shot the pistol course two different times. It's as much fun as you can have with your clothes on!

    What's the preferred method of schlepping your gear around? Do we need to carry all of our gear with us? Is there a lot of walking around? Should we have all ammo loaded into mags or do we have time to reload mags at different points? Just curious as it appears we won't have much opportunity to head back to our cars to change out or retrieve any gear. I've been to basic RR events before but never anything like this.

    Thank you.

    You will carry your gear from the parking lot to the range which is approximately 100 yards. I would recommend having your mags loaded, but there will be time to load mags while you’re not shooting also. The pace will be brisk, but lots of fun will be had. See you there.

    I see the sign up is still active on the site. Has the deadline been extended?
