December 21 Work Party and Live Fire Practice

Event Details / Program [ PDF | Word ]

RANGE LOCATION:  Range 214, Horno Range Complex, MCB, Camp Pendleton, CA. Refer to SMGC web-site ( for Camp Pendleton vehicle entry requirements and detailed driving directions to the range.

WORK PARTY:  The Santa Margarita Gun Club will be conducting our 3rd Work Party to finish the last of our target frames for our Electronic Target Systems.  This work party is dedicated to completing the last amount of work to get our systems and targets finished.  Since the majority of targets frames are built already, we will need to attach the electronic sensors onto the remaining target frames and build the target repair faces for the short and long line events.

WORK PARTY START TIME:  8:30 A.M. on Saturday, December 21, 2019.

PRACTICE SESSION:  Upon completion of the work party, (Approximately 12:00 noon) SMGC Members will transition to the Live Fire events.  The club has invested a vast majority of our club funds to these Electronic Targets so that we would be able to eliminate the need for target pullers at our future events. 

One of our main purposes of this Practice Session will be to get members who attend and desire to shoot, familiar with the two different Electronic Targets Systems (Shot Marker and Silver Mountain Target Systems) along with Match Officials to overcome any problem areas.  Firing Members will need to bring their own personal electronics (Tablet, I-Pad, Lap Top Computer and/or Smart Phones) to the practice session. The course of fire is listed below. 

SMGC NRA 2700 Pistol Match

We we were able to get our December Pistol match in with MCCS, thanks to Sam Leiske and the gang at MCCS for running the range. 

Fortunately the roads dried out enough that we could access the range. As of Saturday afternoon it was 4WD-only able to access the range.

With the holiday weekend, we had 6 competitors show up to shoot.  Jessie Currier cleaned up all the categories with some very good shooting, even with a borrowed 1911 as his was having issues.

Match Scores

We are looking at running an EIC Pistol Match in January. As soon as we have it scheduled, the date will be posted.

December 1st NRA 2700 Pistol Match

We are running another match on R216 under MCCS Recreational Shooting on December 1.  Start time is 8 am.  This will be another NRA Approved match.

Sign up is available thru Practiscore:

Fees are $20 Military, $30 SMGC Annual Members, and $45 for Non-SMGC members.  We will limit the registrations to 11 shooters in order to accomodate the range width.

We will be shooting 3 targets per shooter to minimize interruptions with MCCS operations.  With this plan, you will have a 30 minute block time to shoot your slow fire.  Timed and rapid fire will be the normal sequence and time, just on a succession of three targets to minimize interuption and cease fires.  After each sequence is fired we will score and reface the targets.Mike Jones
