Cherokee IPSC

Cherokee Gun Club is proud to host a USPSA-approved IPSC match the second Saturday of each month.

We shoot a minimum of six stages per match with an average of 130 - 140 rounds.

New shooters are welcome. See the Range Rules.

Cherokee Gun Club is a COLD RANGE. If you bring a gun to the range to shoot in a match, it needs to be UNLOADED and Cleared BEFORE you enter the property - not in your car, trunk or safe area.

Club matches monthly - every Second Saturday (see dates below)

We use "Shoot 'n' Score it" for online match registration and optional pre-payment.

Go to: http://shootnscoreit.com/search_event/ and search for "cherokee" to locate the current match open for registration.

All you have to do is make yourself an account using your email address and a password. You can then sign up for the match and using the links on the left pre-squad yourself. You can adjust your squadding at any time up to registration close. Online registration for the club match will close the afternoon before the match.

If you don't/can't/won't use online registration, you can continue to sign up and/or pay at the match. Those signing up the morning of the match will have to shoot on which ever squad is assigned to them, as we have limited space.

On-site check-in and registration will cut off promptly at 09:45am to allow time for final squadding and match prep. Arrive early or risk disappointment! 

Note that even if you sign-up and pay online you must still check-in at the on-site registration desk before 09:45 to confirm your presence and sign the club waiver. 

We use the PractiScore electronic scoring system. This lets us put through over a hundred shooters at a match and still have the scores posted within an hour of last shot.
