Join us every Tuesday in Douglasville and Thursday in Atlanta for the Stoddard’s Rifle Challenge!
Matches will be similar to IDPA matches but with semi-automatic rifles. There is a 20 shooter max limit to each match. Shooters will have the chance to compete and shoot courses of fire that will test their speed and accuracy all while focusing on safe gun handling in most common scenarios. Shooters can choose to be timed or not. The goal is to provide an environment similar to IDPA and USPSA but where shooters can share similar interests in the rifle community, meet new friends, and better their skills as a shooter.
Day: Thursdays in Douglasville and Atlanta
Location: Douglasville and Atlanta
Douglasville Price: $5.00 – Members $15.00 – Non Members

There will be a brief discussion about equipment used and also an explanation of some firearm handling required by shooters. IDPA’s competition rules will be covered in detail. Finally, scoring will be explained along with procedures you can expect to follow at a match. With the conclusion of the classroom portion, we will move to the range and shoot a short two or three stage match for an opportunity to see what it’s really like.
