Step away from the bench and learn how to shoot from position.

Become a competitive shooter and improve your marksmanship skills.


Highpower rifle competition is a fun and challenging way to improve your marksmanship skills. Matches take place every warm weekend all over Illinois. But going to your first highpower match can seem a little daunting so let us show you what the sport is all about in a relaxed environment at a comfortable pace.

The first part of the clinic is a lecture and will cover safety, basic marksmanship, shooting positions, and the course of fire of a typical match. In the second part, participants will fire an informal match at 200 yards and enter their scores on the provided score cards. Coaches will help everyone understand the positions, adjust their sights, and answer any questions. Afterwards, we will re-convene and recognize the top scorers.

We will provide the range time and the experienced instructors. You must bring at least the following:

  • Eye and Hearing protection
  • A rifle with the following:
    • Center-fire rifle no larger than .30 cal.
    • Metallic sights (preferred) or a scope of no higher than 4.5X
    • Magazine capable of holding at least 5 rounds
    • NO COMPENSATORS OR MUZZLE BRAKES. The standard "squirrel cage" flash-hider on AR-type rifles is acceptable.
    • An AR-15 type rifle with at least a 20" barrel is preferred but not required.
  • At least two magazines for your rifle if your rifle takes detachable magazines
  • A sling for your rifle
  • Approximately 70 rounds of ammunition that is safe to fire in your rifle.
  • An interest in attending highpower rifle matches

 We provide:

  • Range space
  • Score cards
  • Experienced coaches
  • A sport that you will enjoy for a lifetime
