The Pistol Silhouette shooters are looking for a couple of target setters.  No experience necessary.  Looking for mature young teenagers that would like to earn a little extra cash.  Each setter will make on average, between the club and tips, approximately $60.00/match depending on turnout. We shoot on the first Saturday of the month (check the calendar for exact dates).  If you have a young team that would like to give this a try or have any questions please contact :

Bret Stuntebeck @ 253 863-7315 (Home) or 253 691-7797 (Cell)

                             22RF FUN CLUB MATCH
On Sunday, Mar 18th, starting at 9 am, PBRSC will host the first of three .22 lr Fun Club Matches. The first will be a 40 round match, plus sighters, shot at 100 and 200 yards on the MR 31 and MR 52 targets. Two ten round strings for score at each range. There are two classes, Target Rifle And Sporting Rifle. The Match Director will determine which class you will shoot in by the equipment you bring. If there are at least four entries using iron sights, we’ll make it a separate class. If not, you’ll be squadded by rifle class.
For the bold, there will be a side pot match called The One Shot, a single round on a separate target, shot any time during the match. Closest shot to center for each class wins the the pot. No re-entries.
Cost will be $10- per entry, $5- for Octogenarians and Juniors. All proceeds to the Club.
Please take the time to get sight settings for both ranges prior to the match, as there will be no extra time allowed for trying to "find paper" at each distance. No refunds after the first shot.
We will continue  doing the occasional unscheduled 200 yd pot matches during the year as the interest allows. Stay tuned.
