Welcome Shooters to the six annual summer theme shoot. This is a follow up of our winter (I Froze My Butt Off Shoot) and spring shoots. The shoot is open to club members and to non members. 

Theme for Shoot: We are continuing with the format of the spring shoot. The handgun shooter fires on a series of "pre-qualifier" targets (steel plates and clay pigeons) and bonus target(s) that allows the shooter to fire for score on a paper target. We have made a few changes from the spring shoot to keep it challenging and interesting. As is a tradition, we added a second match for rifle. The rifle match does not utlize a "pre-qualifier" but does incorporate bonus targets and tight time limits.

The full details and rules are available for download.

Location: The shoot will be held at the Goffstown Fish & Game Association facility on Melvin Valley Rd. in Weare NH. 

Date: Sunday, August 14, 2016 from 8:45 AM to end (3pm latest.) If weather is doubtful, please go to www.goffstownfishandgame.com to see if the shoot has been canceled. 

Prizes: There is a first place prize for high, overall, scoring individual in the rifle and handgun match. 

Cost: Cost is $20.00 for the match. Food is included in the match fee. Your fee allows you to shoot either match or both as often as you like, time permitting. Shooters firing their initial entry will have priority over re-entries. Shooters can shoots pistol only, rifle only, or both.

Grub: Free coffee all day. Food will be served, and the cost is included in your entry fee. Non-shooters will pay a nominal fee for the food. 

Please see attachment for full details and rules!  We hope to see you there!

Welcome Shooters to the fifth annual winter theme shoot. The purpose of the shoot is to fill in the doldrums of winter with a fun, low-cost, not-much-on-prizes, you-get-braggin’- rights-and-a-frozen-butt shooting match. Last year Mother Nature decided to drop an ice storm on us and we had to quit shooting by noon or spend the night. This years January shoot is going to have a target shooting theme. I have several club members who enjoy paper punching and have been after me to set something up. I decided to run two handgun matches and a rifle match. Knowing that most of the attendees are more informal shooters, I split the handgun portion into a strict one hand “bullseye” match and a second “sportsman” match allowing two hands (times, targets and distance are the same, I just tweaked the rules to give them a better chance at higher scores) on most of the relays. The rifle match was left at one match. As with our other matches we will run a line of shooters during each match. We will continue to run lines for the various matches throughout the day until we run out of time, shooters or the weather turns on us. Please try to be there on or at 0900. Thank You! So grab your favorite “shootin’ irons” and head out to the Goffstown Fish and Game and freeze your butt off with us! General rules, dates, times, etc. are listed below. 

Location: The shoot will be held at the Goffstown Fish & Game Association facility on Melvin Valley Rd. in Weare NH. 

Date: Sunday, January 17, 2016 from 9 AM to end (3pm latest.) If the weather is real bad, the shoot will be cancelled. If weather is doubtful, please go to goffstownfishandgame.com to see if the shoot is still on. If the shoot is cancelled we will try to reschedule (IF POSSIBLE), with the new date being posted on our web site. 

Cost: $20.00 per individual contestant. This fee allows you to shoot in any two matches of your choice. If you want all three matches cost is an additional $5.00. Lunch is provided as part of your entry fee. Re-entry fee is $5.00 Re-entry is allowed if time permits.

Grub: Free coffee all day. Food will be served at lunch time. Light snacks and breakfast will be available. Non shooters pay a minimal fee.

Goffstown Fish & Game Association is proud to host an NRA sponsored Women On Target Clinic on Saturday, May 30th, 2015 from 8:30am to 3pm!  This is an introduction to firearms for women only and has proved to be a fun and enormously successful event in the past!  The cost is $35 and that includes your course materials, lunch, and everything else you need for the day! The first half of the day is in the classroom where you will learn about safe firearms handling, the pieces and parts of different types of firearms, basics of firearms storage and cleaning, and more.  After a break for lunch, we will head out to the ranges for the live fire portion of the day.  You will be ONE ON ONE with an instructor whenever you are on the shooting line.  We've found that this increases confidence in new shooters and helps them to feel safe knowing that an instructor is right there with them.  We're extremely proud of our safe, responsible, and respectful instructor team here at GF&GA and we've had rave reviews from women in the past about how helpful, knowledgeable and fun our instructors are!  You WILL have a great time!  :)  To register for the course, contact Clinic Director Christina Luppi via email at cluppi@goffstownfishandgame.com or download the brochure below and return it via regular mail along with your registration fee.  We are looking forward to a another great course!  We'll see you there!

Welcome shooters to our spring shoot. This shoot is open to club members and non members. This is a simple shoot to get warmed up for the summer and is also a good way to get together and burn some powder. Basically it is designed to be set up quickly, shot quickly and torn down quickly. In the last year we ran several combat pistol shoots which seem to be popular. Seeing how I currently have a plethora of the B-27 we have been using, I thought I try and use some up at the spring shoot. With that thought in mind I decided to set up a combat course for the spring shoot. This year we will host a BASIC and INTERMEDIATE combat course so you can test your skill level. Both shoots are basically the same with alloted times the big difference. The basic course will have more generous times that are more suggestive than rigid. The intermediate course will be more rigid and times adhered to. I opened it to a wide variety of pistols and revolvers but there are some that are not suitable and have been eliminated. There are two matches in this shoot and your entry fee covers one match. Your score is the total of one match. 

Location: The shoot will be held at the Goffstown Fish & Game Association facility on Melvin Valley Rd. in Weare NH. 

Date: Sunday, May 3, 2015 from 0800 AM to end (noonish). Coffee and grub at 0800, followed by set up. Shooting will start at 0900. No bad weather date. We will only cancel in case of extreme weather. If weather is doubtful, please go to www.goffstownfishandgame.com to see if the shoot has been canceled. If you want to shoot please be there by 930 - 1000 the latest! Earlier is better. 

Cost: $5.00 per match which includes “Danish and Coffee” in the morning (see below). Prizes: Winners get their entry fee back and bragging rights.
