Registration open for Mason-Dixon's new pistol division...

pistol-logo[1]We are looking to start a division that will participate in the Scholastic Pistol Program (SPP). The SPP is the pistol division of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF).

This will be a speed steel program. Take a look at this video on the SPP website, (http://sssfonline.org/video-spp-go-fast-stage/) it will give you a good idea of what we will be doing. Dan, Dawson, Sam and Jacob shot it for fun at Nationals this summer and they all loved it.

The SPP has 2 classes, a Rimfire Division and a Centerfire Division. I need a minimum of 4 shooters to sign up in one of the divisions in order for us to start a team.

Pros:

  • All practices will be held at IWLA York Chapter #67, Dallastown PA
  • It’s not going to cost a lot. $20 to sign up for the SPP, a pistol, and some ammo will pretty much be everything needed.
  • For those who chose to participate in the Rimfire Division, we will be receiving a grant for 10,000 rounds of .22 ammo that we will use for practice.
  • The team has about 35 boxes (50 rounds/box) of 9mm that team members can purchase for $12.50/box.
  • The SPP has a deal with Ruger and Glock where shooters in the program can purchase pistols at Great Prices!!!!
  • Anyone who participates in the SSP with us this year, and attends Nationals, will get to shoot the National Championship for free.

Cons:

  • The team will not have any loaner pistols. Some of the coaches have firearms that they will let kids try but shooters who participate will be expected to provide their own firearms.
  • As of today, there are no competitions in our area for us to participate in. The only competition the team will be participating in will be for the kids who go to Nationals.
  • There are only 6 scheduled practices and a couple of them are early next year, so the weather may influence the ability for us to get them all in.
  • One of the SPP practices is scheduled for an afternoon where we have a Sporting Clays practice in the morning at Blue Ridge.
  • Ammo supplies have been getting better in recent weeks however .22 ammo may be difficult for us to find after we use up our grant ammo.
  • Our program will only be able to take 12 participants. If we have more than 12 sign-up, priority will need to go to kids who are going to Nationals in July.

SSP Practice Dates:

  • 1/24/15 @ 2:00 PM
  • 2/28/15 @ 2:00 PM
  • 3/28/15 @ 2:00 PM
  • 5/14/15 @ 6:00 PM
  • 6/27/15 @ 2:00 PM
  • 7/9/15 @ 6:00 PM
