COAST RIFLE AND PISTOL CLUB

Welcome to the Coast Rifle & Pistol Club on the Web
Serving Hancock County, Harrison County, and Jackson County since 1968!

A note from the Practical Pistol Shoot Range Master.

 

Welcome to the Biloxi Practical Shooting Association. We meet on the 4th Sunday of every month, at 9AM. You are more than welcome to come early and help us set up. You can see the stages and even sign up and pay at www.bpsa.us. We are a USPSA sanctioned shoot. It’s $15 for club members and $20 for all others.

 

You will need eye protection and ear protection. Sunglasses are fine for eye protection. Practical Pistol requires a .38/9mm or larger center fire pistol with a holster. The holster cannot be “small of back”, shoulder, or tactical leg. We are a USPSA affiliate. You can check their website www.USPSA.ORG for more information. There are two safety tables to take your bagged gun to and “gun up”. No ammo at the safety table. No one has a loaded gun until directed to “load and make ready” by the Range Officer as they are about to shoot a stage.  

 

There are several ways to get disqualified (DQed). The muzzle of the gun must not break the 180. IE must never be pointed even one degree uprange.  The muzzle of the gun must never sweep you (point at you) or anyone else. No accidental discharges, particularly ones that hit less than ten feet from you or go over the berm. Finger off the trigger when reloading or moving to a new shooting position with the exception of when you are actively engaging targets while on the move.

 

We usually have five stages that total under 120 rounds. There will be steel targets and cardboard silhouettes. If you plan on missing you may need a few extra rounds. You should have three magazines but I always bring at least five. 1911’s only hold as little as eight rounds. You will need a couple more magazines.

 

Please don’t come and plan on watching the first time. Bring a gun. It’s too much fun not to join in. The group is usually broken into three teams. You will have about ten shooters to watch before you will have to shoot and all the free advice you care to listen to. Feel free to email me and ask any question you might have. kendi@cableone.net
