Pre-Registration required for:
USPSA Intro (4/27)
IDPA MA State (6/1-2)
USPSA Multi-Gun (10/5)

All other events will handle registration the morning of the match, approx 9am to 9:25am. Shooting starts at 9:30am.

Regular monthly matches are typically 5 or 6 stages. Monthly match fees: USPSA=$20, IDPA=$15, Steel Challenge=$15 (juniors $10).

Intro to USPSA seminar is intended for the completely novice competitor (if you've shoot a match or two before, this probably isn't the course for you). This all-day course will start with classroom instruction, covering safety, rules, practical skills drills to learn the safe way to draw a pistol out of a holster, and then transition to live fire shooting on three typical USPSA stages. Students will spend one hour on each of the three stages receiving instruction, demonstrations, and the opportunity to shoot the stage as many times as the one hour will permit before transitioning to the next stage. Stages will include moving targets, swinging targets, steel targets, no-threat targets, walls, barricades and other props. Class size will be limited to three squads of six for a total of 18 slots. Cost is $75 and includes lunch and a shoot pass to be used for any USPSA pistol match at New Bedford during the 2013 (including the match the very next day). If you've thought about trying USPSA, this course will get you into the game.

The IDPA Mass State Championship requires pre-registration ($75 if entered before 5/1/2012, $85 on/after 5/1). Entry form can be found here:

Multi-Gun on Oct 5th requires pre-registration. This will be a USPSA Multi-Gun match and will operate under those rules. Match fee is $40.

New shooters always welcome. Eye & ear protection required by everyone on the range (competitors and spectators).
