What is High Power rifle? It refers to centerfire rifle competition modeled after a course of fire once given to U.S. soldiers. It is a 50-shot match course fired from the standing and sitting positions at 200 yards and the prone position at 300 and 600 yards.
Any standard issue American service rifle, such as an M1 Garand, Springfield M1A (civilian M-14), or AR-15 are acceptable. Modified bolt action target rifles with micrometer peep sights are also used
This year’s schedule of local NRA Highpower rifle tournaments has been released.

The bathrooms are all nice and clean. All the uprights for the targets are in place and many old branches were taken down and the leaves were raked, and the sound system is up and working. So all in all the place looks great.

I would also like to thank the three Clarence Shooting Club members that came out to help too: Ward Paulter (Clarence’s Secretary), Tom Thoman, and John Dworak (Clarence’s President).
