Course Overview Overview

New for 2018! Monthly Practical Shooting Competitions.

MTC is bringing the exciting sport of Practical Shooting to Northern Michigan. If you want to test your gear and yourself in a fun and safe shooting environment this is for you. Bring your shooting buddies and see who comes out with the win each month. Expect to shoot 4-6 stages of challenging courses of fire with your pistol, learn your limits and the skills needed to shoot more accurate and faster. Round count will be 100-200 rounds per competition all while shooting on the move, shooting around barricades, and at varying targets of steel and paper from 3 feet to 50 yards. These timed and scored events are fun and exciting for everyone from the novice shooter wanting to improve to the master class shooter looking for something new.

Preregistration payment is preferred for forecasting but not necessary. You may pay at the door.
