Texas Carbine Steel Match Reminder

Our monthly TC tactical match is Sunday, June 24th, at Starry Gun Range. It will consist of five original stages and it will be all Steel targets. The round count is 100with no misses and the match will be pistol and rimfire friendly.

Registering in advance definitely helps with sign-up plus it allows us to email you quickly if anything changes. So, we would very much appreciate it if you would pre-register. We are limiting the match to 75 guns and you can sign up to shoot 2 guns with the understanding that we may have to limit the 2nd gun if we have a lot of single gun shooters signup.

As always, the stages on match day may vary slightly from those you see online so please, read the stage description closely in PractiScore on the tablet to avoid confusion and thanks in advance.

If you have questions, please see our FAQ Page and if the answer isn't there Email Us.

The weather forecast looks nasty for South Texas weather through mid-week, the weekend promises to be HOT and not to breezy with Sunday having a high of 92, heat index of 101 and a 40% chance of precipitation.  Texas Carbine will have ice water on hand, ensure you stay hydrated.

Again, as always, any help with set up on Saturday would be greatly appreciated and you will get a $5 discount on the match fee.  Please come out and help.

We have modified our divisions to make it simpler to choose.

OPTIC = Any optic magnified 2x or greater or has variable magnification
IRON = Any non-magnified optic (Red Dot) or open sights
OPEN = Anything goes, all will compete no matter type of rifle, pistol or shotgun.

Stages will be posted on our Forum and on Practiscore.

Message from Maytag

Well it has been a long run, but it is time for Texas Carbine to bid Starry’s adieu. This Carbine Match marks the last one at Starry’s. The July Carbine Match will be held at Corpus Christi Pistol and Rifle Club on the second Sunday which is July 8th.

Moving to CCPRC has a lot of ups and only a few downs. The ups, just to name a few are, a much nicer facility, with real berms, clean rest rooms, skid o cans, shade at all stages, and we will not conflict with other shooting events in Corpus Christi, Oh! Did I mention real berms? The downs are we will only have one match a month.

We will still hold a steel match at Starry’s in June, July and August on the 4th Sunday. After that we will not hold any other matches at Starry’s.

We want to thank Phil Underwood for his work on the Board of Directors of CCPRC that made this move possible. We also want to thank Billy Starry for allowing the four original Pirates of Texas to use the range all those years ago that morphed in to Texas Carbine. It is with mixed feelings that Pirates of Texas cast off for a new chapter in their incredible journey.
