Personal Defensive and Carry

Personal Defensive Carry Match Apple Valley Gun Club

Personal Defensive & Carry is conducted under Apple Valley Gun Club Rules and is a defensive centerfire pistol or revolver event. This event may also have a separate defensive long gun stage for those who choose to participate in that.

Stages are set up on Pistol Bays 1-3, with a mixture of paper and steel targets, that reward accuracy and speed. Scoring is based on a combination of time, knocking down steel, use of cover, and scores on paper. All paper targets are normally shot twice, but may vary, and all steel targets must be knocked down.

Minimum round count varies depending on the number of stages and how they are configured but with a maximum of 150 rounds.
