NISA is a competitive, dedicated group of individuals from northeastern Illinois and southern Wisconsin with good character who enjoy interactive practical pistol shooting.
NISA is a member of the United States Practical Shooting Association (www.uspsa.com)
Shooting events are held once a month, from March thru October, rain or shine. These events consist of six individual stages of fire that can range from single, multiple or "field course" positions with a round count of up to 32 rounds per course. NISA owns a vast array of target types, including the Texas star, drop turners, swingers, plates, poppers etc. so there is always something new. Each month brings six new course designs, plus a classifier, which means new challenges to test the skills of shooters of every level, and of course, an endless amount of fun.
Range fees for 2015 are $20 for NISA or Schultz's Rod and Gun Club members, $25 for non-members and $15 for Juniors. Non members are always welcome.
Membership fees are $40 for new members and $30 for renewals. Your NISA membership also includes a discount for Schultz matches & membership.

Schultz's Rod and Gun Club
For many years stage set up has been a problem. It winds up being done by the same 4 or 5 people starting Saturday morning and finishing Sunday morning. We have tried many different ways to persuade, entice, reward, guilt and otherwise cajole people into helping out, to no avail. We discussed this at length at the Membership Meeting and unanimously agreed to implement a new system this year in which each squad will build a stage (or two) prior to the match.
This is how it will work. Check in will open at 7:30 am day of match. It will close at 8:30 meaning if you are not in line by 8:30 you will not be able to check in. Your squad will be assigned a stage to build. Starting before and during check in we will bring the trailer around and drop off the materials necessary for each stage. We will provide detailed SketchUp diagrams to follow. Several of us will float between stages to help direct and adjust them. Shooter’s meeting will be held at 9:45 and the match will commence as usual at 10:00. Squads will be responsible to tear down the stage they finish on and should help load same onto the trailer. We are contractually obliged to be off of the range by 2:00.
This will accomplish several things. It will eliminate the need to prestage the materials on Saturday. Obviously it will spread the load across more people so each person won’t have to do too much. It will allow more careful set up with many more eyes to spot potential problems. It will eliminate the last second panic where the last stage or two get thrown together just before the Shooter’s Meeting. These aspects will allow us to continue to put on 7 quality stages per match (6 new plus a classifier).
This system should also help spur people to come up with stage designs of their own, especially all of our new RO’s. If you’re going to help build it you might as well help design it. We are always happy to have stage ideas from you in any event. They don’t have to be of your own design. Just send them to NISA.USPSA@gmail.com and we will adjust them if necessary and set it up so that your squad can build them as well.
Next match is Sunday August 28th
There will be 6 stages plus a classifier. Stages may be posted. Expect a round count of ~170 or so. Registration is open at Practiscore or use link at right.
