The popularity of ARs over the past few years is staggering as millions of gun owners have purchased these rifles for recreational shooting as well as for home defense. To help owners sharpen their skills on this platform, the NRA has developed a unique training and competition event designed to go beyond typical target practice. DMSC is proud to sponsor this program which provides opportunities for all skill levels. While the main firearm used is the AR 15, any magazine fed rifle is acceptable.

Clinics: This program is an entry level opportunity for first-time owners of an AR, youth (12+), and men or women who have considered but hesitate to participate in competitions. NRA Certified Instructors and Range Safety Officers will provide classroom instruction, dry fire practice, and several stages of live fire. This will be a great chance to expand your experience with the AR in a safe and comfortable environment.

Basic Match: Intended for AR owners who are not experienced in action rifle competitions. Shooters will use basic defensive positions at a slow pace to test technique and accuracy. Stages are conducted at varying distances from 100 yards to 7 yards, using the four basic firing positions. Opportunities to shoot from behind barricades, at multiple targets, varying distances, magazine reloads, and using the support shoulder are also part of this competition.

Advanced Match: Intended for experienced competitive shooters, this event builds upon skills utilized in the Basic Matches. Competitors will be required to change firing positions. move through multiple firing points, and reload against the clock. Shooters must have previous experience in action rifle activities such as the Basic Match, Defensive Rifle Classes, etc.

ARC Plus (2 Gun Match): This event couples skills found in the Advenced Match with the combined use of a pistol and rifle. As this is not an entry level activity, participants must have prior experience in an Advanced Match at DMSC.

Smallbore position rifle practice every Sunday evening September through April at 6:00 PM (unless there is a 4:30 Steeler game in which case there is no practice.) Any sights on .22 caliber rifles are acceptable. Targets are available. Anyone with interest in smallbore rifle shooting is welcome to come out to practice and shoot with the team. League matches start in October. The Dormont-Mt. Lebanon team participates in matches every Wednesday evening home or away. Led by Dean Trew (724) 239-3012 and Matt Piatt (724) 263-6253.

Twice each year, in June and November, a marksmanship contest for antique centerfire military rifles will be held. Any centerfire original military rifle with original open sights, no scopes, manufactured prior to January 1, 1946 and in safe shooting condition. Semi-autos, muzzle loaders or replicas are not permitted. The course of fire will be 50 rounds total at 100 yards using standard SR-1 and SR-21 targets. The course is broken down into 10 rounds off-hand, one round at a time in 10 minutes, 10 rounds kneeling/sitting from standing command in 70 seconds (for magazine equiped bolt action or one round at a time loading) or 120 seconds (for trap-door Springfields), 10 rounds prone from standing command in 70/120 seconds (as above), 20 rounds slowfire in 20 minutes, prone position loading one round at a time. This event is open to all, 16 years of age and older. A $5.00 fee includes targets only, you must furnish your own ammo. Dust off that old '03 Springfield, Mauser, Enfield, LaBelle, MAS M36, Trapdoor, etc. and join us in this fun shoot. Led by Bruce Ungar (412) 343-2256.
