Texas Carbine is the newest shooting club in Corpus Christi and we offer monthly Tactical Carbine and Pistol matches as well as regular 3GN style Shotgun and MultiGun matches at the Starry range. Our goals are to provide a safe and challenging shooting experience and do our best to ensure that everyone has a good time.
16NOV - HURRAY, we weren’t rained out for our first carbine match since August! Forty guns came out to challenge our five courses of fire and fortunately, despite an iffy forecast, the weather held and it turned out to be a really nice day for shooting.
We had a first for TC with an idea we’ve been tossing around for a number of years, i.e., figure out a way to incorporate a moving vehicle in a stage. A golf cart was the only truly feasible vehicle and Maytag designed a stage where the shooter begins the stage sitting in the cargo box of a cart, facing downrange. Then, on the signal, a designated driver mashes the pedal, (which is blocked to give the same speed for each shooter,) and the cart moves uprange with the shooter engaging targets on both sides. Some thought the speed of the cart was too fast while others thought it was just right so we’ll play with it for future use but everyone seemed to enjoy the stage nonetheless and LT Dan was the only person to fall out of the cart.

Welcome to our six new shooters: Mel Rodero, Tracy & Mark Self, Brian Bertrand, Armando Galvan, and Michael Martinez. We really appreciate your interest in Texas Carbine and hope we’ll see you again at future matches.
A big thanks once again to Gerrit and Nick Milks who came all the way from Houston, to Don Springer (and company) who drove up from the Valley. That is truly a big compliment to our club.
Also thanks to those who came out on Saturday to help us set up and, to those who came early today to help us finish up.
Another reminder...our annual Pirates of Texas Carbine Championship which this year, we’re calling it, The Terry “Spider” Panknin Memorial Classic as a tribute to our dear friend who we lost in April of this year. The application is available on our website,
