History Of H.R.G. Action Pistol Shoots
"Safety First Foremost and Always"
Harwinton Rod & Gun Action Pistol Matches are set up so that
the average shooter may compete and have fun in a match style
combat shoot. It is similar to a I.D.P.A. match, but scaled down
Our shoots started in1997 when some
of the HRG members and myself wanted to shoot a course with
fire. Using two or more targets and a timer we wanted to see
how good we were able to hold our first match. It was a barricade
shoot which those who attended enjoyed and couldn't wait for
the next one. We add more to each shoot, improving upon the
to the where we are today.
Today we shoot three (sometimes fout) courses and
have added a great event to the H.R.G. schedule. Our match events
We commonly have children shooting the match with their parents
walking them through. We commonly shoot the barricade event
have a maze of doors, walls, and hallways that the shooter
must walk through while shooting and reloading under the clock.
If you haven't seen one of our match events, stop
by and check one out. You may just get hooked and join us.
