The Orange County Pistol League Consists
of teams participating from many surrounding counties.
1. Competitors must be members of the NRA.
2. NRA conventional indoor rules apply.
3. All forms must be completed and submitted and fees paid by the second
4. Sign-up sheet:
· Cannot sign up other team members.
· Cannot sign up then leave.
· Sign-up closes at 8 P.M.
5. Relays begin at 3 P.M. and continue every hour. Last relay is 8
6. Competition is at 50 feet and the course of fire is:
· 20 shots slow fire at 2 targets with 10 shots per target fired
in 10 minutes per target.
· 20 shots timed fire at 2 targets with 10 shots per target fired
in 20 seconds per target.

7. Two alibis are allowed and can be used anytime during timed or
rapid fire. There are no alibis
in slow fire except for re-fires as per NRA rule 9.14.
8. A competitor may declare a "disabled pistol" as per NRA
rule 9.5 and the chief range officer (CRO) has inspected and found the
pistol to be disabled. The competitor may then switch to another pistol
and continue firing or leave the firing line. If the competitor leaves
the firing line he/she has the option to have their score not be counted.
The disabled pistol may not be used for any other matches entered that
match date until it has been fixed and declared safe by the CRO.
8. Scoring is done after the 60 round course and your equipment is
off the firing line.
9. Challenges will be decided by a 3-person jury selected by the CRO
from the competitors on each relay. All jurors must wait until all competitors
on the relay to which they are assigned have accepted their scores,
signed and turned in their scorecards.
10. Teams will consist of a maximum of 12 members with the 4 highest
scores counting toward
the team aggregate.
11. Team members are not required to belong to the same club.
12. Teams with only 3 shooters will take 90% of the 3 score average
for the 4th score.
13. Unlimited shoot a-heads and make-ups are permitted. Both will
count toward your team and
individual score. The first fired score counts for the date on which
it is fired and the second
and subsequent fired scores will be for either make-ups or shoot a-heads
as designated on your scorecard.
14. Competitors shooting for score take precedence over make-ups and
shoot a-heads. Make-up
and shoot a-head competitors must relinquish their port if needed.
1. Hearing and eye protection are mandatory.
2. Firearms must be boxed until you are at your firing port.
3. Firearms must always be pointed down range.

directed to do so by the range
safety officer (RSO).
5. Brass falling forward of the firing line belongs to the host range.
6. All RSO instructions must be followed.
7. Any infraction of the above rules or any unsafe act is grounds for
dismissal off the firing line.
TEAM CAPTAIN RESPONSIBILITIES
1. Ensure the following forms are completed and submitted and the team
fees are paid by the second match date.
· Range waiver form (if required).
· Team roster.
· NRA registration cards also known as the SR-1 score reporting
2. Ensure the team is present on their designated host night.
3. In inclement weather call the range to verify the league is running
4. Notify team members of the cancellations.
5. Ensure team members are trained and familiar with range procedures,
safe handling of firearms and scoring.
I cannot stress enough the importance of the last team captain responsibility.
New shooters without the proper training present a safety concern. Inexperienced
or shooters new to bullseye are also a safety concern. To both types
of shooters the range commands and procedures, rules, scoring and general
atmosphere can be daunting. Meet with new or inexperienced shooters
at your local range. Explain the NRA rules and run through several National
Match Courses (NMC) to get them acquainted to the sport before competing
in actual competition. The OCPL has an outstanding 100% safety record
since its beginning. Let's keep it going forever.
1. Ensure a range officer is present on the assigned host night.
2. Collect score cards after each relay.
3. Check for correct addition on all score cards.
4. Package score cards and mail to the Statistical Officer.
5. Score luck targets and post winner's name on board.
1. Write your name on the sign-up sheet. The number on the line is
your firing point.
2. Get your 6 targets (2 slow, 4 timed/rapid) and a score card.
3. Label the targets (S1, S2, T1, T2, R1and R2) and fill out the score
4. If needed, indicate if score is a shoot a-head or a make-up. Leave
blank if shooting for score.
5. At the firing line pass your score card to the right and score the
person on your left. Competitor on firing point #1 will score the last
6. After match is complete and targets are scored, sign your score
card and the competitors card you scored on your left.
7. Wait until the competitor you scored reviews the targets and score
card before you leave.
When you sign your score card you are agreeing with each shot value
written in each box. You are not signing in agreement with the final
score. Checking each shot value before you sign will help avoid the
surprise when scores are posted.
