The Clairton Sportsmen
rifle discipline is a very active and varied facet of our club.
The outdoor covered range has 10 firing benches with targets at
50, 100 and 200 yards. This range offers a great place to sight
in rifles, muzzle loaders, pistols, and shotgun slugs.
(Note that there is no patterning of shotguns at the rifle range.)
The range is open to all
members and there guest(s) year round from 9:00 A.M. till dusk.
This range allows the use of paper and metallic targets (see
basic range rules below).
Club rules dictate that this range is for single round
firing only out of any style/caliber rifle with the exception
that no 50 BMG’s may be used on any ranges.
From the benches we host silhouette matches, a cast bullet
program and special holiday shoots.
The 200 and 300 yard
Competition range to the left of the benches offers 10 firing
points and is open only under the supervision of a director or
designated range officer. CSC is affiliated with the Civilian
Marksmanship Program, the NRA and the PA State Rifle and Pistol
Association and holds several high-power competition
matches throughout the spring, summer, and fall.
During the winter months
(Jan. through March) the indoor rifle/archery range offers
indoor target shooting on Thursday evenings at beginning at
7:00P.M. This is a
great program to learn basic firearm safety, proper techniques
for competitive shooting or just a way to improve your shooting
skills and have some fun.
The program is geared more toward juniors (starting age
is 10 years old) who will be giving priority but adults are
welcome as well to participate.
We encourage parents to stay and watch their children
shoot and learn.
Schedules for all of the matches are available on the website.
all match programs for the dates the current ranges are in use.
