Have you ever wondered what it would be like to shoot in competition?

Felt you weren’t good enough? Are you competitive, or would you just like more of a challenge, or you just want to have some FUN?

The Monday Night Shooting League (MNSL) is just right for you. Enjoy the evening with friends, make more friends, or just come on by and shoot the bull(seye).

The league is designed to accomodate the novice shooter, yet still offers challenges for the old hands as well. You don’t even have to own a firearm – you can rent one from the range (You must have a firearm or friend with you to rent from Reed's - Reed’s range rules and policies apply).

For the sake of yourself, your fellow shooters, and the volunteers who help put on MNSL, you will be expected to obey the league saftey rules in the classroom, in the store, and on the range. And of course, you will be expected to observe all Reed's Range and Firearm Safety Rules.

Equipment

Handguns only, semi auto or revolvers, single or double action. All calibers, .22 on up. Fixed sights or scopes.
 
Handguns are also available for rent at the range, for those who do not own a handgun, or want to use something different... Reed's rules and policies apply. Reminder: you must have a firearm or friend with you to rent at Reed's

Shoot in as many divisions as you like:

22:Any rimfire handgun with iron sights.
Production:  Any centerfire handgun with iron sights.
Open:Any handgun (including .22) with scopes, electronic sights, lasers, or compensators.
Revolver:Any centerfire revolver with iron sights.
Lady's Division:Open, Production, 22 cal. and Revolver
(Divisions may change as the league progresses).

Scoring Details u/d 2 Jan 2014

What do these scores mean?

Mnsl has a unique [1] way of calculating scores for each session. The scores on this page reflect this calculation.

Your official score for the session is comprised of a series of 10 scores. Of these 10 scores we drop the lowest 2 and average the remaining 8. This results in your session average. Session averages are used to award medals for the various events and divisions, for example Session 38, Division Production, Event PPC.

Unlike other sporting leagues, which require a shooter to attend each and every week, MNSL was designed with a more flexible schedule. Each session is 10 weeks long with 2 "make up" weeks to allow a shooter to miss a week and still obtain the best possible official score.

However, sometimes 2 make up weeks is not enough. Furthermore, some of our shooters enjoy shooting more than 1 time per week. We have allowed for this with a completely open and flexible scoring system. This system allows shooters to "shoot ahead" or "catch up" as many relays as they like on a single night.[2]

Our scoring system takes the first 10 scores and calculates an average. In addition for every 10 scores you shoot after that you can get another (possibly higher) average for the same session/event/division. We commonly refer to a series of 10 scores as a "line".[3] It should be noted that only your highest line average counts for awards medals. For example, if the same shooter shoots the 2 highest averages in a particular event and division they do not get a 1st and 2nd place medal. In that case they would receive only 1st place.

However, in addition to the awarding of medals we also award raffle tickets for prizes at the end of each session. Raffle prizes are given randomly and do not depend on score. Each "line" (10 scores/1 average) completed results in a single raffle ticket being awarded. In the case above, the shooter would double her chances to win a raffle prize or could even win more than one prize.

Finally, it should be noted that the last "line" a shooter completes requires only 8 targets to be shot. The final 2 scores for that average are counted as 0's and thrown out as the lowest.


[1] As far a we know no other sporting league does scores like this.

[2] There is a practical limit of the number of relays we can offer on any given night. Most nights we are limited to about 8 relays total PPC and Tyro combined.

[3] We call a complete set of 10 scores a "line" because the scores were originally kept on a single line (row) of a spreadsheet.
