Helpful Information

Who can shoot at the Texas Ranger Classic?

The Texas Ranger Classic is an open event for all shooters from the novice to the professional – men, women, and youths. Our highly sought after champion buckles are awarded to team champions and High Over All winners.

What equipment do I need?

Because the sport is popular with a wide variety of shotgun enthusiasts, the shotguns used do not fit an exact standard; however, every shotgun used for sporting clays must be capable of shooting two cartridges of 12 gauge or smaller. The most popular shotgun configurations are over-and-under, semiautomatic, and pump-action, using traditional cartridge shot sizes of 9, 8, or 7.5. 

Safety is an important part of sporting clays. Proper ear and eye protection are mandatory, and firearms safety procedures, as listed in the National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) Rule Book, must be followed at all times while on a course.

Are there any tips I should be aware of?

  • You’ll need to bring your own ammunition to the event. Make sure to bring enough to cover 100 birds, and any warm-up games you intend to shoot in.
  • The course at the National Shooting Center covers many acres. You may want to bring your own “cart” or rent one onsite. This will help you keep up the pace of the shoot, and haul all of your gear.
  • No alcoholic beverages will be allowed prior to the shooting event. Water and sodas will be provided throughout the shoot.
  • Lunch will be served after the shoot – and adult refreshments will be provided at this time.
  • Our raffle items are amazing! We hope you enjoy the selection and participate with gusto!

TOURNAMENT PRIZE BUCKLES

Tournament buckles are awarded in the following categories:

  • HOA CHAMPION
  • RUNNER-UP HOA CHAMPION
  • WOMAN'S HOA CHAMPION
  • YOUTH HOA CHAMPION
  • FIRST PLACE TEAM

About Company "F"

Company “F” encompasses a geographic region that spans from Waco to Victoria and covers 43 counties including the Texas State Capitol. Company “F” is commanded by Major Corey Lain and is assisted by three Lieutenants who supervise 27 Rangers and the Ranger Cold Case Program Manager. The duties of the Texas Rangers have changed very little in the almost 200 years of Ranger history. Much like the Rangers of old, modern-day Rangers conduct criminal and public corruption investigations, apprehend wanted felons, suppress major disturbances, respond to and investigate acts of terrorism, and render assistance to local law enforcement in suppressing crime and violence. Since 1935, the organization has been a division of the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Today, the legendary old West mystique of the Rangers is complimented by modern skill and ability that has been demonstrated by Company “F” Rangers during catastrophic natural disasters and major criminal events. In the fall of 2017, Company “F” Rangers and command staff joined over 50 Rangers from other Ranger Companies in response to the Hurricane Harvey crisis. During this catastrophic weather event, Rangers led law enforcement rescue efforts throughout the south and southeast coastal areas of Texas. Over the next few months, Company “F” Rangers were faced with the tragic loss of two Texas Highway Patrol Troopers, the deadliest mass shooting in Texas history, and domestic terrorism that held the city of Austin hostage for over five weeks.

Through it all, Company “F” Rangers continue to remain steadfast - ready to answer the call to protect and serve Texas against natural and man-made catastrophic events.

THANK YOU TRAF!

Dear TRAF,
I want to thank you so very much for awarding me scholarship money over the past two years. The TRAF scholarship has allowed me to focus my goals and attend my dream school, Texas A&M University. During school I work a full time job at Tabor Road Veterinary Hospital which allows me to help pay for all of my bills associated with school. Again, this scholarship means more to me than you know and for that I am grateful.

Thanks & Gig’ Em,
Claire Lindemann
