Baton Rouge Air Rifle Silhouette Matches
Bayou Airgun Club located at the Old State Fairgrounds on Airline Highway in Gonzales hosts a months air rifle silhouette match on the 2nd Saturday of the month year round. Course of fire is 3 matches of 40 shots each in your choice of rifle classes Open, Target and Sporter.
The range is locked when no members are present but most of the time someone will be there to unlock the gates around 8am on match days. If you get there first just relax for a few and someone should be along shortly. This is a BREC park facility and considered one of the nicest airgun only ranges in the entire country. It also offers opportunities for anyone wishing to try Field Target shooting.
We have 2 sets of resettable silhouette racks that makes for easy resets between rounds. We can put 8 people on the line at a time per relay so many shooters can be accommodated easily all under a covered firing line.
Airgun silhouettes are especially tiny. 1/10th the scale of the High Power targets. To give you an idea of how big that is for say the chicken at 20 yards just take a look at your thumbnail and that is about all you have for a target to aim at.
