Chicagoland's Premiere Sports Shooting Facility.


The purpose of Practical Rifle is both competition and skills development.  This is an opportunity to get your rifle "off the bench" and challenge your marksmanship skills while developing new skills most shooters can't practice on a range.  Competitors will face new scenarios each month.

Attendees typically use modern, magazine-fed, semi-automatic rifles such as AR-15s, AK variants, Springfield M1As, etc. Bolt-action rifles are not recommended since some stages require magazine changes.  Shooters should plan on firing about 150 rounds.

Up to 4 magazines may be utilized on a single stage, and your favorite mag retention system is encouraged. We do not impose limitations on firearms or ammunition; all calibers and legal equipment is welcome. Optics are shooters choice, iron sights, red-dots, and magnified optics are all welcome. Practical Rifle is a great opportunity to gain experience with all your gear!

Typical Equipment/Gear Needed:

  • Rifle - typically a modern, magazine-fed semi-automatic rifle/carbine in caliber of 9mm or greater, such as an AR-15, AK variant, M1A, etc.
  • Ammunition - about 150 rounds of non-penetrator ammunition (steel or tungsten core or green tip penetrators).  However, you should bring enough rounds for your skill level.
  • Chamber Flag - have a chamber flag which is easily, quickly and positively removed from/inserted into the chamber of your rifle. PIECES OF ROPE/TWINE WILL NO LONGER BE PERMITTED.

  • Clothing - we shoot regardless of weather. Plan accordingly.
