MRGC has hosted many other matches such as Garand Matches, Stake Shoots and 200 Yard Plate shoots.

All of our matches are centered around getting new shooters into shooting sports. There are no requirements except to be safe.

Work Days

We are a not for profit organization.  Our mission is to promote the shooting sports.  The vast majority of facilities maintenance is performed by volunteer members.  We have several work days throughout the year to keep our facilities in order and looking good.

In Oct 2015, a bylaw was added that requires all able adult members to provide 4 hours of service.  Medical exemptions are available by request.  We all have busy schedules and if you simply cannot attend a half day work session, you may volunteer in other ways (project management, specialized skills, etc.) or pay a $50 "buy out" of that requirement.  The club will use that money to buy range improvement materials or hire contractors to perform tasks that the membership cannot.


MRGC plans various events throughout the year to open its doors to visitors and show appreciation to members.

The Dates of these events will be posted on the calendar. If you would like to volunteer to help, please email president@marionroad.com

Steel Challenge

3rd Saturday of every month


You shoot a pistol (or rimfire rifle) at 5 steel targets to see who shoots the fastest time. 100 rounds will ensure that you have enough ammo for the day.

Please bring 5 magazines.



Action Steel, 3-gun and pin Matches

3-Gun - (Quarterly)

Action Steel - (Twice Quarterly)

Bowling Pins - (Twice Annually) A super fun social time that kids love. This ever changing match format uses pistols (and some times rifles, pistol calendar carbines or shotguns - check the calendar!) to knock down bowling pins or other targets.  The following match formats are most common:

1.) Quick Draw is a timed event where you try to shoot down five pins as fast as you can.

2.) Baker's Dozen is a game of steady hands and strategy as you shoot at 13 bowling pins at different distances which  are worth different points and you only have 12 shots.

3.) 2 gun and 3 gun matches use pistols, pistol caliber carbines, rifles and shotguns to hit pins and other targets.

Suspended - Bullseye Pistol Shoot

2nd Saturday of every month

90 rounds for record on paper targets (B-8) at 25 yards

This is one of the best ways to improve your pistol shooting and actually track results from practicing.


There is a centerfire only 50 round pistol match following the 90 round match.


Rifle Matches

4th Saturday of the Month

Rifle Matches are shot in 3 positions. Due to fixed shooting tables, prone can be replaced with off your elbows on the table. You will need a rifle capable of holding 5-10 rounds for some rapid fire stages. The match director hosts a centerfire and a rimfire match immediately thereafter. Centerfire (Target is NRA's SR-1) is 40 rounds @ 100 yards for record and Rimfire (CMP's B-19) is 50 rounds @ 50 yards for record. A generous Sight-in period is allowed so bring extra ammo.  Other shooters will happy to assist you if you require it.
