Competition Range

The Hogue Action Pistol Range is the premier action pistol range on the West Coast.

We have 13 bays ranging from 20 yards to 50 yards, host five full time shooting venues, and a number of Major or annual events.

Action Pistol/USPSA

San Luis Action Pistol shoots the 2nd Saturday of each month with registration at 8:00, shooting at 9:00. In addition, we are now offering a second match each month, a Tactical Pistol Match on the 4th Sunday of the month prior to the Rim Fire Match. This match is a great starter match for those who want to get into Practical/Tactical shooting. It has 4 stages with the round counts around 100 rounds.

San Luis Action Pistol (SLAP) is a USPSA affiliated action pistol club. We are open to the public and you do not need to be a member (of SLOSA or USPSA) to participate. NEW SHOOTERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME. If you are tired of just putting holes in paper and are interested in the exciting sport of USPSA shooting there is no need to come and watch prior to your first match, just come to our regular monthly match and we will give you an introduction to action pistol, safety and shooting. Every month, many first-time shooters participate get hooked on action pistol.

Bring your unloaded gun (in a bag or case), a holster, 4 or more magazines with magazine holders and a Range Officer will explain where and when you may handle your firearm. You will be given a short range safety briefing and an introduction to the rules before the match starts. Then you will then be guided through the match by more experienced shooters.

Our monthly match usually consists of four to five stages and one classifier. Round count is around 200 but bring extra for make up shots.

Do Not bring a loaded firearm on to the range! Don't worry about whether your gun is suited for USPSA - bring what you have. There is a division for almost any center fire pistol 9mm or larger.

San Luis Action Pistol is now using Practiscore for our pre-registration and scoring, please click on the link below to pre-register for all of our USPSA events (search SLOSA). If you are not a member of USPSA, just enter PEN in the field where it asks for your number. You do not have to be a member to shoot our monthly club matches.

Central Coast Rimfire's focus is the timed action shooting of handguns and rifles chambered for .22LR rimfire. We especially welcome those new to firearms and the shooting sports! We meet on the Sunday following the 4th Saturday of the month at the Hogue Action Pistol Range located on the grounds of SLOSA shooting complex. Gates open at 11:45, registration begins at noon with the match beginning at 12:30 pm.

Most matches consist of 6 stages (3 handgun, 3 long gun), with each stage containing 4-8 targets. We shoot each stage 5 times. That equates to about 250 rounds maximum plus any misses. Though our matches are timed, they are also friendly and fun with firearms safety and education being our top priorities. The targeting isn't over-the-top either. You can do it! Come on out and join us!

Competition Divisions: 1.) "Open" which allows optic and red dot sights along with muzzle brakes, compensators and porting on semiautomatic firearms; 2.) "Limited" which allows iron sights only and no brakes/compensators/porting on semiautos. 3.) "Manually Operated" which allows bolt, lever and pump action rifles and single or double action revolvers all with irons sights only. 4.) "Cowboy/Cowgirl" which allows old west-style lever and pump rifles with exposed hammers and single-action revolvers, all with iron sights.

Match Fees: Adults: $20.00. Adult SLOSA members or active military: $10.00. Current college students: $10.00.

Ammunition & Firearms: Competitors are responsible for procuring their own ammunition. If you need to borrow a rifle and/or a pistol, we have loaners available. Please contact the Match Director (see below) well before the match to ensure that firearm(s) will be available for your use. For those using firearms with detachable magazines or clips, it's advisable but not mandatory to have 5 of each magazine/clip to ensure an efficiently flowing match. Those shooting tube-fed firearms are encouraged to investigate Spee-D-Loaders at Spee-D-Loaders.net Those shooting high capacity double-action revolvers are urged to consider DS-10-SPEED loaders or one of the many copies readily available.

Steel Challenge

We shoot 2 steel challenge matches each month. The Sunday following the first Saturday is a single gun match. Then the Sunday following the third Saturday is a muti-gun match, shoot 1 or more guns.

Registration begins by 8:00 AM (please register ahead of time on-line using Practiscore.com if possible). Please arrive no later than 8:30 AM the morning of the match for payment of fees and squadding. New Shooter Orientation is at 8:45 AM, and Shooting starts at 9:00 AM.

The match fees are:

  • General Public: $20

  • SLOSA Members: $15

  • Cal Poly students: $10

  • one gun per competitor

The Steel Challenge is friendly to all handgun, sight and action types. Shooters can participate in many different categories.

Centerfire categories shoot from a holster and include: Open (optics), Limited (USPSA guidelines), Iron Sight Revolver, Optical Sight Revolver and Single Action

Rimfire shoots from "low ready" and includes: Iron Sight Rimfire and Open Rimfire (optical sights)

(Note: A holster is not necessary for rimfire shooters, but a bag or case of some sort is needed to store the gun between stages)

We also allow pistol caliber carbines (rifles which shoot pistol calibers such as 9mm) in both iron sights (PCCI) and optics (PCCO)

The Steel Challenge organization has some additional specialty categories which we currently track including:

Law Enforcement, Military, Lady, Senior (55-64) and Super Senior (65+)

We shoot 8 stages. Each stage has 5 steel targets and we shoot each stage 5 times (strings) except for "Outer Limits" which we shoot 4 strings. That's a minimum of 195 rounds if you don't miss. Make-up shots are allowed so the typical match is around 250 rounds. It's preferable to have 5 magazines or speed loaders (or a good friend to reload magazines for you between strings) to save time. We throw out the worst string and total up the rest to give a total time for the match.

The 8 Stages of Steel Challenge are: 5 To Go - Accelerator - Outer Limits - Pendulum - Roundabout - Showdown - Smoke & Hope - Speed Option

Steel Challenge Rules can be found at the Steel Challenge website
