ATS is open to EVERYONE.
The sport of Tactical rifle and pistol shooting is quite simply the use of practical equipment and your surroundings, including proper cover and concealment to solve simulated scenarios. Shooters involved in ATS are encouraged to use practical rifles, handguns, holsters and gear.

ATS will help participants in the sport of tactical shooting develop safer habits and improve the skills necessary to handle firearms. We practice a variety of drills that will allow you to shoot under a variety of scenarios. You will learn to use timing and command decision-making in the most dynamic ways possible. Anyone is welcome to suggest something they would like to try and the organizers will do their best to work it into the program.

It is important to note that ATS is organized by volunteers with a desire to improve their gun handling, and provide a place and time to build confidence in those skills. There are no timers, scores or trophies, only a positive group dynamic, a forum to discuss and critique points amongst other members of the group and most importantly HAVE SOME FUN.

ATS generally tries to operate on an RSVP system. If you are interested in coming out and participating please contact us prior so that we can run through some of the requirements and discuss the training for that evening. If you are a member of AFGC and are an experienced rifle or pistol shooter feel free to swing by and check out the training. The range is open for observation to ALL AFGC members during ATS meetings. If you are not a member of AFGC and are interested in coming out and observing please contact Claude Murdoch prior to the ATS meeting.
