The monthly Silhouette matches are held on the second Saturday of each month. The dates for upcoming matches (all Saturdays) can be found on theLASC Online Calendar. An email will almost always be sent out a week before the match advising you of date, start time, etc. so be sure to sign up for theSilhouette email list. Generally, we will start setting up the targets at 8:30AM, shooters can start practice around 9:00AM and the match will begin at 9:30AM. Silhouettes-in-a-row pins as well as award certificates will be given out.

|Open Sights||1. Revolvers and semi auto pistols||2. Single shot pistols||3. Rifles|
