Range Authorization Requirements - Highpower Division

Members can qualify for Highpower range authorization through the Highpower division by shooting three of the four regular monthly matches. Unless you are an experienced Highpower competitor, the 80 shot regional or 50 shot national matches are not eligible for authorization. If you are seeking range authorization, you must acquire a range authorization form from the match director prior to shooting the first match. You keep the form with you and get the current match signed off each time. As of 1/1/2016 you must: (1)- Attend a match without shooting it, to familiarize yourself with the pits and equipment requirements. Then (2), compete in six matches to achieve authorization. The match descriptions are above, please read them and see which ones most closely fit your interests and equipment.
