Action Pistol Match on October 9th in Sandusky Ohio

Postby Gargoyle357 » Tue Oct 04, 2005 6:16 pm

Erie County Conservation League is holding an "Action Pistol" match on October 9th. This is their second match and they are trying to see if there is enough interest in the area to expand their program. Shooting IDPA this year it seems there is a big gap between the matches in Ashland and Wauseon , and I would love to see them hold regular matches right in here in Erie County.

I don't have a lot of details, as I am not a member, but it is Sunday October 9th at 2:00. They are supposed to have 5 USPSA style stages. There is a link below to the ECCL web site which does not list the match, but does have the location of the range.

They are just trying this out, so if you attend please be patient with the volunteers.

I'm glad u found out that information. I'm going to attend their meeting this Thurs nite, I am a member. and i should have more information. I hope to see you at the shoot Sunday. It should be a good time. The last one they had was their first and they had a better than expected turn out. I hope it is even better the 9th.

Heh! When I was a kid, we used to worry about those Godless Communists -- these day it's the Godless Action Shooters!

Don't you guys ever go to church? :D

Whatever happened to good, old fashioned, week night shooting...? :?

Somebody (customer) in a gunshop said that while they were still new at it, it's only open to members. ECCL has something under a thousand members. However, I too will be at Thursday's meeting so stand by for the real scoop when we report back after the meeting about 10 PM Thursday.

I used to be a member there but quit after they demanded outrageous rates for teaching ccw classes there. Plus, I was tired of the politics.

Was at meeting this evening. The chief person running the show had to leave right after the meeting so I missed him. However I did manage to pick up the following information. The person running the show is a Perkins Township LEO and club member. The first shoot which they tried a few weeks ago brought in 21 people. They expected 5-8. It was free but that might change soon.
Required: proper holster for gun size, extra mag or loader, 9mm or better prefered and about 100 rounds (you won't use all).
This Sunday 10/9 at 2PM. West end of Fox Road off Rt250 just south of Kalahare (sic) Indoor Water Park.

Thanks for the update! They may even have a bigger turn out this time, weather permitting. I'll be there with 2 friends myself.

Any mention of cover garments, like in IDPA?
