2018 Hunter's Sight-in Day
October 21st, 2018
Our mission is to promote the shooting sports safely and responsibly, in our local community.
On October 21st, The Columbus Rifle Club in partnership with the Nebraska Game and Parks will open it's private 200yard range to free use by the public to safely sight-in rifles prior to hunting season. Volunteers will be on hand to provide technical assistance. Targets are provided free of charge. To ensure the safety of everyone please make sure that your firearm is unloaded before entering our facility. Always follow the instructions of the Range Safety Officer(s) and volunteers.
Please remember the following safety rules while at our facility:
- ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
- ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot
- ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded, until ready to use
The Columbus Rifle Club wants to remind everyone that alcohol and firearms never mix! We wish everyone a fun and safe 2018 fall hunting season.
Smallbore Rifle competition is fired with single-shot .22” Long Rifle firearms, using either iron sights (no or limited optics) or with telescopic sights. Firing is done from the prone, kneeling and standing (and sitting) positions. Distances to targets are 50 feet, 50 yards, 100 yards, (and 50 meters for International competition). Time limits are very generous.
USPSA & Steel Challenge
USPSA competition has provided a test bed for equipment and techniques, many of which are now the standard for police and military training.
Cowboy action shooting is a unique shooting sport that is designed for all shooters and skill levels. Many shooters enjoy the historical aspect or the competition, but this is not an old west reenactment. Costumes are not required, all you need is a pair of jeans, long sleeve work shirt or Henley, and a pair of boots.
