Two Smallbore Rifle Leagues are run each year.  These are for .22 rimfire rifles only.  Both are shot on Monday evenings from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. 

The winter league is shot at 50 feet from the Pistol Shed where we have heaters. For the course of fire you can choose either 50 shots Prone or 10 shots each Prone, Sitting, Kneeling and 20 shots Standing. It runs from the first week of January through March.

The summer league is shot on the Rifle Range and runs from the first week of June through August.  For your course of fire you can choose either 40 shots prone at 50 yards and 20 shots prone at 100 yards or 20 shots each position (Prone, Kneeling, Standing) at 50 yards.

  • A potluck awards dinner wraps up each season.



  • High Power Rifle competition may take several forms.  The National Match Course or Regional Match Course includes Standing slow fire, Sitting or Kneeling rapid fire, Prone rapid fire and Prone slow fire at distances from 200 to 600 yards.  This form of competition evolved from the U.S. Military's course of fire.  Some matches are single position only, either Standing or Prone.  Service Rifles and Match Rifles as defined by the National Rifle Association are the firearms used.  
  • The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is a national organization dedicated to training and educating U.

     A couple of times a year, we hold black powder cartridge rifle (BPCR) matches that are shot from the 600 yd line. There are two classifications, standard black powder rifle classification and a fun classification. The standard class is for anyone shooting a rifle chambered in a caliber that was originally loaded with black powder. The fun class is for anyone that doesn’t have a black powder cartridge rifle. They can shoot any rifle and any cartridge loaded with smokeless powder with jacketed or lead bullets. We shoot two relays. The first relay is on the firing line and one in the pits pulling and marking targets. After the first relay is done, we trade positions to allow the pit crew to have their chance at the firing line. This is a 40 round match. Shooters will have 15 minutes for sighting in. The first target is 15 minutes for 10 shots for group. The next two targets are 25 minutes each for 15 shots for score. Shooters may shoot from any position they like i.e. prone, sitting or bench. 


     Cast Bullet Benchrest is the shooting of lead cast bullets in several different classes of rifles or pistols such as Production Rifles, Heavy Rifles, Unlimited Rifles, Plain Base Breech Seat Rifles, Hunter Class Rifle, Hand Guns, Long Range Hand Guns and Unrestricted Pistol.  Targets are the CBA benchrest target which consists of a target that has one sighting and five score bullseyes.  One shot is fired on each score bullseye.  Four targets at each range of 100 yards and 200 yards. 

      We also hold Cast Bullet Association  military rifle matches. These matches are shot with rifles that were issued to any military and are divined into three categories:  

  1. issue, which is as the rifle was issued to the military,
  2. improved sight where the rifle can have modified sights or a few other modifications
  3. scope class which allows the use of a scope

 These matches are shot at 100 and 200 yards using regulation NRA MR-31 and MR-52 targets.

Bullseye Pistol, recently dubbed "Precision Pistol", traces its beginnings back to the early days of handgun competition.
It is a one handed pistol sport that has three stages:

  • Slow Fire is one or more 10 shot strings in 10 minutes, usually fired from 50 yards.
  • Timed Fire is two or more 5 shot strings in 20 second, usually fired from 25 yards. In most cases the targets will be on edge and will face, beginning the time. After 20 seconds the targets will edge.
  • Rapid Fire is like  Timed Fire with just 10 seconds. Both TF and RF are repeated for a total of 20 rounds each.

This is the basics, often a tournament will contain other special matches for such as Service Pistol or even Revolver.
Matches include .22, any center fire from .32 to .45 and the .45 match. Any pistol or revolver may be used, but semi-automatics are preferred.

These matches are sanctioned by the National Rifle Association that provides the rules and classifications depending upon the individual shooters skill.

International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA)



International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) is the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated “real world” self-defense scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual.

IDPA offers an exciting forum for practical shooters in which truly practical equipment, techniques and courses of fire are mandated. Prior to IDPA, there was no place to compete with common service pistols. There were no shooting sports where your concealed carry holster could also be your match holster without handicap.  When you come to an IDPA match, you can not only use your duty/CCW equipment, you can be completely competitive with it!

If you’re interested in using truly practical pistols to solve challenging and exciting defensive shooting problems, then IDPA is the sport for you.

The International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC)



The International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) was established to promote, maintain, improve and advance the sport of IPSC shooting, to safeguard its principles and to regulate its conduct worldwide in order to cultivate the safe, recreational use of firearms by persons of good character.

Competitive IPSC-style shooting developed in southern California in the late 1950's and quickly spread throughout the shooting world to Australia, Central and South America, Europe, and Southern Africa.  Accuracy, power, and speed were recognized as the quintessential elements and have become the foundation of IPSC shooting. The Latin motto Diligentia, Vis, Celeritas (DVC) meaning accuracy, power, and speed was introduced to reflect these balanced elements.

Range procedures and rules for competitions, as well as safe gun handling standards, were also adopted and are strictly adhered to at Paul Bunyan.



A pistol silhouette match is typically 40 rounds and consists of knocking over steel animal cutouts with a handgun at distances of 25, 50,75 and 100 meters for small bore and field pistol and 50, 100, 150 and 200 meters for big bore. A row of 5 chickens is shot at left to right, with each one knocked over counting, then repeat to complete your 10 targets. The same is done with rows of pigs, turkeys, then rams at the longest distance. There are classifications for almost any type of handgun, from iron sighted 22 RF to custom unlimited guns and almost everything in between. It is a great way to sharpen your handgun skills and also great practice if you are a handgun hunter



ASI is an informal type of competition geared to the average gun owner, teaching gun skills in a fun atmosphere with the handguns they typically already own. It is a move and shoot type sport but no holster is required.  All starts are from low-ready or table. (if you want to draw, you may do so with RSO permission). Firearms are transported from stage to stage in a gun case, range bag, or in a holster. Most matches have 5 to 7 stages. Round count is about 100, but bring more in case of a re-shoot. We accept handgun calibers .22 rimfire and larger. Bring two magazines or speed loaders as most stages have a reload required. Typically, matches last 2 to 4 hours depending on the number of participants. We have a regular squad of women who welcome new gals to ASI, and those with mobility issues may shoot standing without a penalty. 
Early pre-registration and squadding is available at Practicescore for the match. New shooters will be allocated to squads on the day of the match so they will be teamed with experienced ASI members. 
Match fee is $20. New shooter orientation is at 9:15am and is required for new ASI shooters. 
Registration opens at 9am and closes at 9:45am. Shooter’s briefing is at 10am. ASI membership is required after your 2nd match.   




Speed steels competition consists of 5 metal plates, placed in various configurations, shot distances between 7 and 25 yards. There are 5 stages, each of which are shot 5 times, with the worst string thrown out, for a total of at least 125 rounds fired total for the match. The “plates” must be knocked over, or in the case of 22RF, just hit, for a score.   

Classifications include stock, carry, revolver, open, draw, and carbine and optic carbine.  All fired stages are timed, so the lowest time with all of the plates hit wins.


The range was built with the intention of developing shooters interested and participating in Precision Air Gun Competition; both with the Air Rifle and Air Pistol.  Precision Airgun Competition guns are some of the most accurate guns made and are a challenge to master.  Both rifle and pistol are shot at 10 meters with the rifle x ring being a pinpoint.  

There are limitations to the types of air guns that can be used on this range, for example pellet velocity cannot exceed 800 fps. This does eliminate most commercial sporter style rifles whose pellet velocities can exceed 1100 fps with light weight pellets.  Most air pistols however do not generate enough velocity to exceed that limitation.  We will have both Precision Air Rifles and Pistols on hand for club members to try.

Precision Air Rifle and Pistol are often viewed as the most challenging of the shooting sports.  Both are a  lot of fun and will certainly hone your shooting skills for any other discipline you participate in.  Shooting times are informal, designed to provide our members with the opportunity to enjoy the shooting sports with others who enjoy the challenge of mastering the skills to master a precision airgun.
