I've never shot a match before, how do I get started?

Come out to a match. There are plenty of opportunities to watch an Indoor Match if South River Gun Club is too far.  If you have not seen the new shooter's briefing, you will receive that briefing at your first match and be assigned an experienced shooter who will help you through the match.

When does the match start?

Our Monthly Outdoor Match starts at 10:00 am. However, you have to come early to check in.  Check-in starts at 9:00 am and ends promptly at 9:45 am.  New shooter briefing is at 9:30 am.  Plan on the match lasting 4 to 5 hours.

Each Indoor Match has its own schedule and dates.  Check each page to find out the details.

How much does it cost?

    • Outdoor Match fees are $25 for monthly GAPDA members
    • Members who assist in setting up the match shoot for free. Set up is the day before
    • Indoor Match fees are usually $15..
