One of our own (Mallory Nichols) is receiving quite a bit of attention. We have shot two majors this year. Mallory has completely dominated the junior ranks and has two top 3 finishes in the open division shooting against the very best shooters on the US, Canada, and Mexico. The club’s foresight to allow silhouette matches and the support of the board has provided a nurturing environment.

Something new has been added at OFGC !
Old Fort Gun Club is pleased to announce that we are adding Trap Shooting to the schedule. For now, we are going to shoot on the third Thursday of the month. Set up will be at 4 pm and shooting at 5 pm. and continue until dark. We understand that there will be some who can not be there at 5 pm. The way Trap shooting works, we will be able to easily accommodate late arrivals. We will be shooting on the 300 YARD RANGE. The cost will be $6.00 per round. A round is 25 shots.
The FIRST SHOOT WILL BE THURSDAY JUNE 19, 2014
The 300 yard range will be closed to rifle shooting from 4 pm until dark.
Come out Thursday evening and join the fun.
Like all OFGC scheduled matches, members shoot their first round for free. If you want to shoot a second round, the regular charge will apply
On Saturday April 26th, Barry Steffen and Dwight Stearns will be putting on a free clinic, centered on Rimfire competition, for new shooters, ladies and youth. Dwight and Barry are top level competitors in this sport and this is a great opportunity to take advantage of their knowledge and abilities.
The clinic will require an additional 100 rounds of ammunition and registrants must be entered in the match to sign up for the clinic. This clinic is for specifically for new shooters, ladies and youth. If you are interested in signing up for the clinic contact Billy at firstname.lastname@example.org
