AIM-COMM's Tactical and Practical Shooting Program (TAPS)

The purpose of AIM-COMM's TAPS PROGRAM is to promote tactical and practical shooting safety and marksmanship training opportunities at the Alaska Department of Fish & Game (ADF&G) Hunter Education Indoor Shooting Range (HEDR), and in Fairbanks, Alaska, and surrounding communities. TAPS is a program of AIM-COMM, the Alaska Interior Marksmanship Committee.

TAPS is a United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) affliated club. The program emphasis is on Safety, Education, and Training, complimented and achieved by Skill Development and Competition.


Our first outdoor match of the season will be a Special Classifier. Saturday, May 12th, we'll be shooting on the Chatanika Range at 5355 Steese Highway (over Cleary Summit a bit, use Google maps).  Sign-in opens at 9 am with the shooters meeting at 10 am.  We're planning on five classifer stages.  This will be your chance to get classified or upgrade your classification prior to the Alaska State Match in June.  We're still in planning, as soon as the stages are finalized we'll post them here.

New shooters are always welcome!  We'll run you through a new shooter orientation prior to the match.  Just show up at the start of registration.
