High Power Prpgram
The Coeur d’Alene Rifle and Pistol Club maintains an active high power rifle program. We hold a match once a month January through September on the public 100-yard range with reduced targets. The matches are held on the first Saturday of each month unless it is a holiday weekend; then it is scheduled on Sunday of the following weekend. Check the calendar page on our web site for exact dates. The annual schedule is also posted at the outdoor range.

The firearms used by high power competitors can be any safe center fire rifle. Some matches require a magazine/stripper clip change in rapid fire, and some matches require iron sights and some allow optical sights. Each match has an advance match notice that specifies the requirements of each particular match. The requirements for each type of match can be obtained by contacting Don Gage at zebb5150@hotmail.com. We welcome new shooters who may be interested in trying out high power rifle, and we provide any training needed to get started.
