About Lafayette Gun Club: http://www.hrshootersguide.com/yorktown.html
We are in the planning stages for our first Pistol Caliber Carbine fun match. Due to this first match being a test of procedures and interest, the match has been moved to Monday night, April 17, 6:00-9:30pm. Please update your calendars!
Registration for this match is being handled via Practiscore. Registration is open now, please register at this link -> LGC April PCC fun match.
This match is for pistol-caliber carbines as allowed by LGC’s indoor range rules (limited to 9mm, .40s&w, and .45acp caliber, and no full-auto fire). We have a division for sub-machinegun pistols in those same calibers. We are also evaluating tactical-style .22s, such as ARs in .22lr. If there is sufficient number of competitors and interest, we may move future PCC matches to Sunday mornings and will consider allowing .22lr entries.
The course of fire draft has 2 stages, with each stage requiring up to 50 rounds. We will send out the final course of fire a couple days before the match.
Please note the following rules will apply for PCC matches:
1. Normal LGC Practical Pistol rules and Standard Operating Procedure apply, except as modified below, i.e., match operates as a cold range and there is no handling of firearms except at safe table or at the firing line under supervision of a safety officer, etc.
2. Pistol Caliber Carbines are limited by LGC indoor range rules:
a. Carbine caliber must be 9mm, .40s&w, or .45acp only. (Range rules also allow carbine .22lr; being evaluated for future PCC matches.)
b. Submachine gun pistols in these calibers are also permitted for the match.
c. Semi-auto firing only is permitted. Full-auto firing is prohibited by range rules.
3. Carbines and pistol sub-guns must be cased for transport in/out of the match:
