Equipment You Will Need:
A rifle chambered in 5.45x39mm or larger [an AR15 in 5.56x45mm is the most common].
A shotgun chambered in 20 gauge or larger [a 12 gauge semi-auto shotgun is the most common].
A handgun chambered in 9x19mm or larger.
A holster for your handgun. It is highly recommended you get one designed specifically for your gun and not a universal holster. The trigger must be covered by the holster.
Plenty of ammunition for all three guns. It never hurts to have too much ammo!
We also have some ENGC range rules:
No shot larger than #7 in your shotgun. That means that only #7 shot and higher number birdshot types are allowed (#8 shot is very commonly used). Using larger (lower number) shot is grounds for a disqualification for unsafe equipment.
No steel shot ammunition! All shotgun ammunition must be lead shot! We shoot steel targets at close range and steel shot has a much greater chance of causing ricochets. Breaking this rule will result in disqualification from the match!
No steel core, tracer, or armor piercing ammunition is allowed. This includes M855/SS109 "green tip" ammunition. Please make sure you are shooting lead core ammunition. Using these kinds of ammunition will also result in a disqualification! This is because we are almost always going to have steel rifle targets at a match and it beats up our steel and carries a higher risk for ricochets.
