Kootenai Valley Rifle, Pistol Club season starts

Print Article

The Kootenai Valley Rifle and Pistol Club (KVRPC) is dedicated to the sport of small bore shooting and invites other interested people to join them.

Competitive shooting is a sport of precision. KVRPC practices indoors with .22 caliber rifles and pistols shooting at a distance of 50 feet. Rifle shooters aim for a ten ring not much bigger than the period at the end of this sentence. Pistol shooters at a ring about the size of a dime. Senior rifle shooters, age 21 and older, use a scoped rifle and shoot from prone, sitting, kneeling and standing positions while junior shooters, age 12 to 20, learn Olympic style 3 position shooting with open sights.

The teams compete from their home range on Highway 2, and also travel to Sandpoint, Idaho, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Spokane, Wash., Davenport, Wash., and Missoula, Mont.

Smallbore shooting is an NCAA sport, thus college scholarships are available, and if you aspire to compete in the Olympics, it can all start here.

The pistol team meets on Tuesday, the senior rifle team on Wednesday and the junior rifle team on Thursday; all at 6:30 p.m. If you would like to learn more about these sports, stop by the range located on Highway 2, three miles east of Three Mile Junction and see what it is all about. Men, women, boys and girls are welcome.

And for those who have shot in the past, and have put that equipment away, dust it off and come join us. We welcome you back to make some more memories. Shooting, a sport for a lifetime.
