Marty Brown Memorial Open Round #2 – One Day Pistol (Zionsville, IN)

Sep 16, 2023 @ 8:00 am5:00 pm EDT

A huge “Thank You” to Revere’s Rider’s for sponsoring the Marty Brown Memorial fundraiser to support Ovarian Cancer! I had limited rifle and scope experience coming into this class and I was very nervous shooting with people that had more experience. The training that I received in this class was just what I needed. The instructors were great and very patient. They answered all of my questions and encouraged me to try some things that I had not done before. I even won a Challenge Shoot! I would recommend this class to any experience level and especially to women. You won’t regret taking it and you will be helping out a wonderful cause!

Event Overview

This event will follow the outline of Pistol 100, our introductory pistol marksmanship course based on traditional American service pistol fundamentals. This course lays a sound foundation for students to shoot groups under time pressure from a practical stance. Pistol 100 includes classroom and range time learning to shoot handguns. Students learn:

  • Rules for safe gun handling & range rules
  • Pistol parts and operation & ammunition
  • Shooting fundamentals: Five steps to firing each shot
  • Two Handed Grip & Stance: Isoceles, benchrest, and low ready positions (Weaver may also be taught)
  • Natural Point of Aim
  • Shot Group Analysis
  • Clearing Common Stoppages
  • Whittemore’s Stand Pistol Qualifier

Prerequisites: None

Estimated Ammunition Required: About 200 rounds of pistol ammunition.

Pistol Requirements: You will need a safe pistol with at least five round capacity to fully participate in this course. Pistols should be of a modern, drop safe design.

Older single action pistols manufactured before the 1980s and lacking a transfer bar safety are the most common type of pistol that lack drop safe design features, as do some military surplus imports from Eastern bloc countries and Taurus PT-series pistols not fixed during an international safety recall in 2015. These pistols may discharge if dropped and pose a potential safety hazard to our volunteers and students, and are not permitted. If you have concerns about the safety features of your pistol you should have it inspected by an armorer or gunsmith before class.

Required Equipment: Please review our suggestions for appropriate Pistol 100 equipment and plan to bring the following:

  • at least two magazines for your pistol
  • a way to take notes
  • hearing protection
  • eye protection
  • plenty of your preferred method of hydration (both plain water and something to replace electrolytes you will lose via sweating is ideal)
  • clothing appropriate for the weather (loose fitting clothing, especially around the neck, is discouraged as hot brass can lodge against the skin and cause a burn)

We will not be drawing from the holster in this class and we will run a “cold range.” You will not need a holster to participate in the class activities.

Optional Equipment: The following equipment is not required but may come in handy at the event:

  • case for your pistol
  • stapler (and extra staples) to attach your target to the backer board
  • hat with a brim (to deflect flying hot brass)
  • folding chair
  • lunch
  • snacks
  • sunscreen and/or bug spray

Loaner Firearms: loaner firearms suitable for use at this event are generally available but limited. Please contact the Event Director prior to the event if you would like to request a loaner firearm.

The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere

Hear the true story of Paul Revere’s famous ride and learn about the events that immediately precipitated the Revolutionary War. Paul Revere did not ride alone – many individuals played crucial roles in the events of April 19th, 1775.

This history presentation begins with alarm riders warning “the Regulars are out!” You’ll hear about the dramatic stand on Lexington Green and the “shots heard ’round the world” at Concord’s North Bridge. The tale concludes with harrowing life-or-death choices made along the 17 mile “battle road.”

This exciting tale will be woven throughout the day’s marksmanship events.

Additional Event Information

Spectators are welcome but will be asked to remain a safe distance from the firing line (ear protection is required for all spectators; eye protection is optional).

Additional Range Information

Your ticket price includes all range fees along with lunch.
