Governors' Ten

The Presidents 100 is a very, very prestigious event fired at the National matches. Some states have a Governors' Ten event: California, New York, Texas, Georgia, Alabama, etc. Nebraska now has a Governors' Ten event beginning with Governor Pete Ricketts.

Fired as part of the Cornhusker State Games on a Saturday in July. Enter via the Cornhusker State Games in the Centerfire Pistol event.

Precision. Then six series of five shots in up to six minutes, one handed, at a bullseye type target.

DUEL. Five sighters. Then six series of five shots at a turning type target that faces for three seconds, then edges for seven, then faces again, etc. One shot only as each target faces. Equipment is a .38 revolver, or 9mm, or .32 pistol.

To help you prepare for this event, we have a marksmanship clinic in late May, a June practice match, to prepare for the July event, usually fired on a Saturday morning about the third or fourth weekend in July.

The Top Ten Marksmen get a patch, pin, and certificate signed by the Governor signifying membership in this elite club. This is fun, but we want the best shooters in Nebraska to participate.

This event has all elements of marksmanship: precision, combat, PPC, IPSC, beer cans or bottles on the river.

Match Director – Dr Wm Schlichtemeier

Bowling Pin

Bowling pin shooting is a shooting sport for handguns in which the competitors’ race against one another to knock standard bowling pins from a table in the shortest elapsed time. Pin shooting is often described as one of the most enjoyable shooting games and one of the easiest means of introducing a new shooter into regular competitive shooting. Pin shooting appeals to both genders and youth.

Pin shooting is conducted with both revolvers and semi-automatic pistols in calibers ranging from .22 Long Rifle to .480 Ruger, and others. Bowling pin competition is often recognized to be a big-bore event in which large caliber or high-power handguns such as the .38 Super, .357 Magnum, 10mm, .41 Magnum .44 Magnum, .45 ACP, .45 Colt and other large-bore handguns have the greatest advantage in removing the pins from the table.

Match Director – Kurle

Olympic Rapid-Fire Pistol

Equipment needed is most any .22 pistol or revolver. Five shots for sighters. Then: Five shots in eight seconds from the ready (arm down at 45-degree angle to start) one shot at each of five separate targets, B-39 Target at 25 meters. Twice Then five shots in six seconds, twice. Then five shots in four seconds, twice. Then repeat.

Quite challenging. Lots of fun. Usually is fired about Noon on a Saturday in June and July. It is helpful to attend the Pistol Marksmanship Class ahead of time for some basics. It is also helpful to make sure that your pistol likes your .22 ammo, as malfunctions harm your score a lot, but not your fun. Rapid Fire was fired in the first modern Olympics in 1896 and has been fired every quadrennial since. USA Shooting web site and give you more information.

In this clinic we have a safety lecture and inspection of all equipment and ammo. Then we shoot and talk, and shoot and talk, and shoot and shoot and shoot and talk and shoot and talk some more.

  • We use .22 pistols and centerfire pistols.
  • You will need 300-400 rounds of .22 pistol and a box of centerfire fire pistol ammo. Other useful aids are pen and pencil, notebook, shooting glasses and hearing protection, spotting scope or binocs are helpful, screwdriver, cleaning rod, stapler and masking tape, and water.
  • The clinic is usually a Saturday afternoon from 12;30 until 5:30 and we use every minute.
  • You will be tired when we are done but will improve.
  • This is designed for all levels of ability and all shooters will improve.
  • You should be familiar with your gun ahead of the clinic and you should know that your gun likes the ammo you bring and will function reliably with that ammo.
  • This clinic focuses on helping you hit your target, whatever this is, and not on match shooting. Usually it is held late May or early June.
Clinic Instructor – Dr Schlichtemeier.

Free Pistol Match

The pistol used must be in caliber .22 Long Rifle ammunition, may only be loaded with one round at a time, and have conventional "open" or "iron" sights (i.e. optical and laser sights are not allowed). It must also be held and operated by one hand, and not supported by any other part of the shooter's body. Apart from that, there are practically no rules for the pistol. Trigger weight less than 22 kilograms and be discharged with the same hand that holds the gun up. Precision pistols with long barrels, grips fitted to the shooter's hand, very light trigger pull, etc., are often themselves called free pistols. The bulls eye is about the size of your little finger nail at 50 feet and about the size of a 50 cent piece at 50 meters.

Recommend practice of fundamentals: stance, position, grip, sight picture, breathing, trigger control and follow through.

The course of fire is 60 shots within a maximum time of two hours.

Rimfire Challenge Match

All firearms must be cased when moving between stages.

Rimfire Challenge matches have become very popular and the original intent was to design this match for the entire family. This is a two gun match and requires a .22 cal rifle and a .22 cal handgun. Only .22LR is allowed.

All targets are reactive steel of different sizes and shapes. We use eight stages of five targets each. There is a maximum time limit of 30 seconds allowed per run. At each stage the shooter will engage the five targets in any order but a designated “stop” target must be engaged last. The shooter will shoot each stage five times and each run will be timed. The slowest time for each stage will be dropped and the remaining four totaled for the score. All shooting is done from a stationary position: no movement is allowed. All shooters are divided into groups (squads) with different starting/ending stages.

Four of the stages will be for rifle and four for handgun. Target distance will vary for each stage but the minimum is seven yards (handgun) and the maximum is 35 yards (rifle). Magazines are loaded with a maximum of 10 rounds, and it is recommended, but not required, to have five magazines. Reloading will not be part of the shooters time and if a shooter does not have five magazines, he/she may have another shooter in the group reload for them while they are shooting. This is a minimum 200 round match but plan on bringing extra ammo; everyone has misses.

  • Any type action is allowed (except single shot)
  • No special equipment is required. Just a rifle and case, handgun and case, ammunition and eye and ear protection

Firearm classifications are as follows:

  • Rifle - semi auto or manual (bolt, pump, lever)
  • Handgun - semi auto or manual (single or double action revolver)
  • Limited class – iron sights, adjustable or fiber optics allowed also allowed - compensators or muzzle brakes.
  • Open class – scopes, optical sights, red dots and battery powered optics . also allowed - lasers, compensators or muzzle brakes.
