Shooting a gun at a USPSA matchYou need not be a USPSA/IPSC member to shoot.

The "Northwoods Practical Shooter", a sanctioned club under the direction of the USPSA, has been operating at the rifle range on South River Road.

Bruce Gary and a team of dedicated local shooters have been holding matches every 4th Sunday from April-October going on three years now. Various stages are set up where you move and shoot at moving targets, disappearing targets, falling targets, and various steel interactive targets which all help to sharpen your shooting skills.

Practices are held every Tuesday starting in April 1:30-5:30 until October. You must have a handgun, either semi-auto or revolver with a minimum caliber of 9MM/38 with a maximum of .45. You may also use a Pistol Caliber Carbine in the same calibers. You will also need an external hip holster, ear and eye protection, and spare magazines. No concealed carry weapons permitted. There are various classes of shooters and you only compete within your class which levels the playing field.

We welcome interested parties to attend a practice or watch a match. If you want to shoot challenging and interesting stages, and learn to use your handgun effectively, please look us up.

For more information email rhinelanderpistol@gmail.com. Matches and practice are held at the Hodag Sports Club 5896 Sports Club Rd., Rhinelander, WI.
