Welcome to the 2017 LC&SA Pistol League. All shooters are welcome – both members and non-members. We meet the first and third Wednesdays from May through September. Sign-in is at 5:30 p.m. at the pistol range. Both new and experienced shooters are invited. You are encouraged to bring your spouse, neighbor, and/or a friend.
What We Do
The Pistol League at LC&SA is intended for shooters who wish to become more proficient with their handguns. Courses of fire are made up of a number of ‘strings’ requiring 8 to 18 rounds to be fired. The strings of fire involve engaging silhouette targets from close range (as close as 2 yards) to typical defensive shooting distances of up to 15 yards and include strong-hand only, support-hand only, and various firing positions, including firing from behind cover. All strings of fire are timed. The strings are 'revolver neutral' which means that all firearms are loaded with a maximum of six rounds. Therefore, a minimum of three speed loaders or magazines are necessary. Targets are scored and standings are maintained. An awards banquet/meeting/pizza party will be held at the end of the shooting season.
Cost - Members $5.00, Non-Members $7.00, Additional Course of Fire, for practice, $1.00.
Practical Stage (optional)
Those who have completed the Pistol League Course of Fire may participate in the Practical Stage. The Practical Stage will involve applying the skills learned in the Pistol League in a practical exercise. Shooters will engage up to nine IDPA targets while using cover, tactical movement, and proper reloads. IDPA scoring will be used.
Cost - Members $2.00, Non-Members $3.00. Scores will be recorded and standings maintained.
Handgun Skills Development (optional)
Instruction will be given to develop skills in the following areas:
- Chamber and Magazine Checks
- Safely Loading and Unloading
- Stance, Presentation from the Holster, Proper Grip, Sight Alignment, Sight Picture, Trigger Press, Follow Through, and Safely Reholstering a Loaded Handgun
- Tactical and Emergency Reloads
- Malfunction Clearing

Do not touch your firearm again until you are on the firing line and instructed to ‘Load and Make Ready’. You may load magazines/speed loaders at benches located away form the Safe Area.
NRA and LC&SA safety rules are followed at all times:
Always keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction
Always keep the firearm unloaded until ready to use (until instructed to load and make ready)
Always keep your finger out of the trigger guard until ready to shoot (your sights are on the target)
