NRA ACTION PISTOL LEAUGE, #02-2018  

Dear Kaapjag members and visitors,

Kaapjag is happy to announce its second NRA Handgun League event for 2018. Two from the NRA Bianchi Championship format events are selected to sanction this league event.

When: Saturday 30 June 2018. Range preparation will start from 0800, registration 0900 and briefing 0930. Match starts at 1000.

Where: False Bay Sport Shooting Club, Tercentenary Way, Fish Hoek (Ranges 3 and 4). For directions to the club, go to www.falsebaysportshooting.com and click on the map available. We are moving the matches around to various ranges that are available and able to host NRA events. We would like to thank Keith Biermann of FBSSC for making the ranges available for the day.

Who can participate?

This match is open to all Kaapjag members, Chasa affiliates, NRA members and affiliated members of SAPF, SAPPSA, SADPA and ICORE. Members of the SAPS, DCS, SANDF and security industry are welcome to participate and a separate category can be created as per NRA rule 2.4, which includes if the participant is a retired veteran. Please indicate this on your entry.

Prior to this event, entrants had to have competed in at least NRA League, Bianchi, IPSC, IDPA, ICORE, PPC (minimum STD Pistol or Revolver match) or Steel Challenge shooting matches.  Reason is that the shooting exercises will be challenging and require holster proficiency. If you have only shot the NRA Tyro kindly advise the RO for guidance so we can arrange your squading down the shooting order. If you have not attended anyone of the prerequisites, a match readiness would need to be arranged by your club or association.
