Setting records! The ASI club in Renton, Wash. had what we think is their largest ASI club match to date on Saturday — 76 shooters! (Technically 77, but one had to go home early.) Way to go Renton and the Northwest Practical Pistol Association (NWPPA)!
SafeFire “Throwing Everything We’ve Got” At October Zombie Shoot
If you haven’t had the chance to shoot at the SafeFire Indoor Range in Camas, Wash., make plans to visit October 7th.
Match Director Tim Dickerson is “throwing everything we’ve got” at his Zombie-themed October shoot.
On top of the obligatory zombies, he’s making plans to field a target that will “walk” across the entire width of the range. (Subject to HQ approval.) Talk about going to lengths to make his shoot a success!
Dickerson is looking for volunteers to help with the match, and also to help with month-to-month operations. If you’re interested, give him a call at (360) 834-7233. You’ll find all the details about the range via https://www.shootatsafefire.com/asi-match
Interlake Sporting Association (near Redmond, Wash.) is “back in business” for practical shooting. After a decade-long lull, Interlake will hold its first event June 4!
Registration starts at 9, with the shooter safety briefing at 9:30. All shooting will happen outdoors, so plan accordingly.
Interlake’s program has none other than ASI co-founder Sandy Wylie as its leader, helped by volunteers from Interlake and ASI-certified range officers from Renton Fish & Game. Expect four stages of fire June 4, pulled from ASI’s course library.
For directions and other club details, look up Interlake on-line at https://interlakesporting.com/ , or e-mail Sandy directly at “sandy (at) asi-usa.org”.
ASI’s founders remember well the days when Interlake was the “model shooting club” in the Northwest. We’re honored Interlake chose ASI’s controlled approach to practical shooting as the model that best fit its needs.
Check out our photo area to see what our first outdoor match at Renton Fish and Game Club looked like! We had a great time despite less-than-perfect weather. Mark your calendar for the next one — every second Saturday through the end of the year. (May 9, June 13, July 11. . .)
Join us April 11 to kick-off the ASI program at Renton Fish and Game Club.
ASI’s own Sandy Wylie will serve as match director, putting forward what we expect will be a “showcase” outdoor program. If you can’t make it April 11, mark your calendar for the next one — matches will be held every second Saturday through the end of the year. (May 9, June 13, July 11. . .)
Renton offers a beautiful wooded range, with multiple shooting pits. All shooting will happen outdoors, so bring an appropriate coat or jacket.
High Demand Expected — Shooters at Renton have embraced the ASI concept, so we expect to have a pleasant mix of “regulars” and “new people.” If you’d like to know more, send us e-mail through the contact form and we’ll get the particulars out to you.
We expect to start the first group at 10:00 sharp, so please arrive by at least 9:30 for registration and the safety briefing.
Looking for an ASI match near you? If you’re in Seattle, we heartily recommend the new bi-weekly league at Bellevue Indoor Range, Inc. Bellevue Indoor Range shares space with the famous Wade’s Eastside Guns. The two complement each other, with a complete pro shop on one side of the aisle, and a full-service range (complete with rental firearms) on the other.
Anna Tyler runs the ASI match here runs every other Thursday night, 7-9 P.M. The match sells out regularly, so call the range directly to reserve a slot. (425) 649-5995.
When you come, expect to receive a full briefing in the upstairs classroom, orienting you to the basics of ASI competition. To participate, you’ll need to be authorized by the range staff (call for details). The range has a separate safety check process for shooters wishing to draw their guns from holster.
Wade’s is one of the first ranges to adopt the ASI program, and has had great success with it. Many of the ASI stages were developed here, including most of the standard exercises, and many of the fun move-and-shoot stages that will be featured in the “Shooter Logbook.”
