The Blue Force Rifle Team is a precision air rifle team. The team consists of a five man Varsity team with the fifth member as an alternate and a five man Junior Varsity team also with the fifth member as an alternate. We shoot a 3x10 or 6x10 course consisting of three positions in a 50 minute time period.

The three positions include:
  • Prone (more commonly known as “lying”) position
  • Standing position
  • Kneeling position

We fire .177 caliber lead pellets from a Civilian Marksmanship Program regulated shooting distance of 10 meters (roughly 32 feet). Our weapons consist of the Feinwerkbau 300S and Steyr LG10 for the JV team(s) and the Walther LG300 Alutec for the Varsity team. Weapons weigh no less than 9.5 Lbs. and no more than 12 Lbs.
