Holton Gun & Bow Club

EVENT: 5-Egg on Paper

How a match is run

The Holton Gun and Bow Club sponsors a shoot following the membership each month. This page describes the event. The club calendar shows the date and time for the meeting and shoot.

The event features a paper target showing 5 eggs with scoring rings shot @ 100yds from the Bench on the small range. With 3 lanes on the range, shooters form into relays of three contesants who shoot simultaneously. Scores are posted in the clubhouse.

5-egg scored

Historically Membership meets on the third sunday of each month. Sighting practice usually starts well before the meeting, with competition beginning about 11:00AM following the meeting. Do confirm the schedule from the web calendar.


Firearm permitted: Rimfire: 22LR, no limitations on the gun nor sight

Cost: $5.00 per entry

Organization: Shooters enter their choice of a relay number and bench number on a list of competitors during registration. The range master will announce the relay permitted on the firing line.


  1. Once the relay has been announced, and after the range has been made hot, the shooter may bring his rifle from the rack to his chosen bench and set up.
  2. After the shooter and rifle are made ready on the firing line, the shooter may take from zero to 5 sight-in shots (5 is the max) on the reserved portion of the target.
  3. When the shooter has finished sighting, he shall call out “eggs” to the range master. The next 5 shots must go only to the scoring eggs (no more shots on the sighter area after eggs are called).
  4. Permitted: 1 shot per Egg starting from the left toward the right.
  5. Immediately following the last egg shot, the shooter shall make the gun safe and return it to the rack. After the other shooters have finished, all other equipment and brass may be removed from the bench.
  6. When everyone on the relay is done, the range will be made safe and a scorer will go down range to fetch targets & hang new targets for the next relay.
  7. Following scoring and range preparation, the range will go hot and the next relay of shooters may start their course of fire.
  8. In the event of a scoring tie, the range master will create a tie breaker competition of his choice.
