Minot Rifle and Pistol Club

 

 

 


WELCOME

Minot Rifle and Pistol Club (MRPC) is an USPSA affiliated action pistol club. We are open to the public and you do not need to be a member of MRPC or USPSA to participate. NEW SHOOTERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME.

If you are tired of standing in one spot and just putting holes in paper, then this is the sport for you. There is no need to come and watch prior to your first match. Just come to our regular monthly match and we will give you an introduction to action pistol, safety, and shooting. Every month, many first-time participates get hooked on action pistol.

Bring your UNLOADED gun (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.

Don’t worry about whether your firearm is suitable for USPSA – bring what you have. There is a division for almost any center fire pistol.

Notes from the Match Directors

 

ATTENTION SHOOTERS! With all of the growth we’re seeing in our Match participation, we feel it’s time to move to two USPSA matches per month, during the indoor season.

 

First, both matches will have the same stages and same classifier. We are hoping this allows for smaller squads at each match. In an effort to keep the match sizes smaller, we are asking the local shooters to shoot the second match of the month, if possible. This would allow individuals traveling from out of town to have the same shooting schedule they are used to seeing at MRPC (second Sunday of the month). If you are local and can’t make the second match, you are more than welcome to attend the regularly scheduled match.

 

Second, Match Day Setup begins at 8:30am. 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.

 

Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. The MRPC match staff and match directors look forward to seeing you at the range.

 

Respectfully,

 

Wes Thomas III and Cameon Eisenzimmer
