DIRECTIONS TO THE CLUB: From Fort Valley take HiWay 96 approximately 3 miles West. Turn left on the last road (Gun Club Road but presently unmarked) before reaching the HiWay 49 Bypass. The road passes through a pecan orchard, a small housing community and turns to gravel. Cross the railroad tracks and enter the range. If you're on HiWay 49 or the bypass, turn East onto HiWay 96 to Fort Valley and take the first road to the right that runs through the pecan orchard. Please do not speed through the housing area!

 

MATCHES: Each month, the Fort Valley Gun Club holds regular matches on the 1st, 3rd & 4th Saturdays. The matches are detailed below with start times and other information. ALL safety rules apply. The club now has a Porta-Potty and the fees listed below are subject to rising a dollar or two to help offset the cost. Our matches are designed to be FUN but competition can be stiff! In all cases, the Range Officer's decision is final.

 

ALL MATCHES ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!!

MATCH SCHEDULE CAN CHANGE SO ALWAYS CHECK THE HOME PAGE FOR CURRENT INFORMATION!

The safety briefing is at 10:00 AM and the matches begin immediately afterward.

 

Third Saturday Matches:

    - IBS Centerfire Benchrest Match is shot year round. It is shot from the bench at 100, 200 and 300 yards. The distances will rotate with the first Saturday matches; i.e., 100 yards one match and 200 yards the next match, etc. The match course of fire is 25 scoring shots fired on five targets each containing 5 scoring bulls and one sighter bull.. Sighting shots are not limited but total time per target is 10 minutes. The first target will be shot and then the next target posted until 5 targets for a total of 25 scoring shots are recorded.

This match will begin at 9:30 AM and all wind flags and warm-up shots must be completed before that time. Match will be shot from the benches using a front rest and rear sand bag or all sand bags as the shooter elects. Any device that locks the rifle in place is NOT permitted and the shooter must contact the rifle in two places when shooting.
