Rifle/Pistol

General Information

Looking for opportunities to regularly shoot with a friendly group of people? Then come out and join the Aurora Sportsmen's Club Rifle & Pistol department for supervised practice and competitive matches. These events are open to the public and are held rain or shine. Click on the tabs at the left for details about:

Benchrest Rifle Matches

Pistol Matches: NRA Bullseye, Camp Perry Warmup, 1800 Open Division, Black Powder Revolver Bullseye

IDPA (International Defense Pistol Association) Matches

IDPA Skills Drills (Practice Sessions)

We hold matches for juniors and adults, as well as “A” class and “B” class flights to support shooters of equal abilities. We are not really competing against each other—just looking for a forum where we can come together each month to have fun and show that we are improving.

All you need to bring is your own shooting equipment and the right attitude. There are minimal attendance and match fees; the targets appropriate for each event are provided by the Rifle and Pistol Department.

Fund Raiser For The 600 Yard Range:

To help raise funds to develop the 600 yard range, ASC is partnering with BAT Arms of Plano, IL to manufacture and sell some custom-for-ASC AR-15 stripped lowers and uppers. The lowers will have the ASC logo etched into the mag well and will have ASC serial numbers. A portion of the sale price will go to the 600 yard range fund. These lowers and uppers are available only through 4/30/2019 after which sales will be closed and the order placed to the manufacturer. Orders can be placed at the Feb-April general meetings, or directly through BAT Arms (ASC-15 lowerlower/upper package). If you are not comfortable building your own rifle, BAT Arms has some complete rifle packages available, or buy the parts and join us at one of our "build parties" (dates to be determined).
