Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I join the club?
A: We welcome new shooters any time. Check out our match schedule for a date and come on out.
Q: Do I need a black badge or any other qualification to shoot with WRAS?
A: We currently do not require a Black Badge or any other formal training to shoot with WRAS, however we do hold new shooter orientations in before the shooting season begins that we encourage any new or existing members to attend.
Q: Do I need a PAL to try shooting 3-gun/PRS?
A: You do not need a PAL to come out and try shooting 3-gun/PRS.
Q: I currently don't have any firearms or a specific firearm can I still shoot?
A: Most Members are happy to loan firearms, in fact in gives you an opportunity to "test drive" different guns and may help you select a firearm that is right for you. We do ask that if you don't have firearms, or a specific firearm that you bring the ammo (PAL required to purchse) that you will require. If you don't have firearms and are making your first purchase we recommend the pistol first as it has the most logistical challenges during that match when two competitors are using one pistol.
Q: What kind of gear do I need?
3 GUN: At very least, you need a minimum 9mm pistol with 4 magazines, but 5 is preferable. A modern sporting rifle of .223 caliber or greater and a shotgun, preferably 12 gauge, but we do allow 20 gauge shotguns for juniors and ladies. You will require a holster that will retain the pistol during rigorous activity and one that completely covers the trigger. There are all kinds of magazine holders and other gear available, and if you are new our suggestion is to come out and see what everyone else has before buying your own gear. Most members have gear they can lend so you can again "try before you buy". Many of us started 3 gunning in cargo pants and a hoodie!
PRS - a bolt action rifle in .223 or larger with a magnified optic. Optics need to have a Ballistic drop reticle or some form of external adjustment to compensate for bullet drop, as this is a PRS safety rule to avoid ground strikes. Learn your bullet drops at ranges between 100 and 1000 meters, have that info with you.
Q: Do I need to be a member of Edson Fish and Game to shoot with WRAS?
A: No, you don't have to be a member of EFGA to shoot with WRAS. When you register for the match you will have to pay a $10 range insurance fee in addition to your match fees.
