Multi-Gun is one of the newest and fastest growing competitions and it combines challenging shooting obstacle-course style scenarios with three firearms (handgun, rifle, and shotgun). Each target you miss (or fail to neutalize) and each "no shoot" target you accidentally shoot will result in a time penalty. The goal is to shoot the course of fire with perfect accuracy in the fastest time possible.
Minot Rifle and Pistol Club (MRPC) is considered an Outlaw Multi-Gun match. Our matches are scored according to Time-Plus. We break up into squads under the direction of a Range Officer (RO), and each squad rotates through the stages until everyone has shot every stage.
We are open to the public. NEW SHOOTERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME.
Bring your UNLOADED firearms (in a bag or case), a holster, and a couple of magazines (with holders, if possible) and a Range Officer (RO) will explain where and when you may handle your firearm. You will be given a short range safety briefing and an introduction to the rules before the match started. Once the match begins, you will be guided by more experienced shooters.
ATTENTION SHOOTERS! With all of the growth we’re seeing in our Match participation, it's important to have volunteers show up to help set-up and tear-down the stages.
Match Day Setup begins at 1:00pm the day BEFORE the match . The fun stages, that everyone likes to shoot, generally take quite a bit of setup time. We would like everyone to show up early to help, in any way you can, with setup. With more people helping, we don’t have to rush at the last minute in order to get everything finished by 10:00am. If you don’t know how you can help, DON’T be afraid to just ask when you check in. This is a volunteer sport and it is what you help make it. For those individuals that help with set-up, you get a reduced match fee, PLUS get to see that stages beforehand.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. The MRPC match staff and match directors look forward to seeing you at the range.
To get started, all you really need to do it show up! If you don't have all the gear you need, contact us prior to a match and we will make sure we have enough gear for you
