About Us

Welcome to the internet home of the Ohio Airgun & Field Target Shooters Association! We arose from the ashes of the club with the same name started in 1998 by Rick Smelko. Our mission is to promote the airgun hobby by putting on superb field target (FT) matches and by conducting and/or supporting other activities that provide for the enjoyment of airguns. Our FT matches are held on the grounds of Crooked Creek Conservation Club (CCCC) in Hartsgrove, Ohio. This website includes our match schedule, reports of match results with pictures, and other items we hope you will find informative and interesting.

News! OAFTSA Airgunners Score Big at 2016 Nationals!

This past weekend three OAFTSA shooters knocked it out of the park at this year’s Nationals in Mattawan, Michigan!   Hats off to Bill Rabbitt and Dan and Natalie Putz.  After all the hits were tabulated following 2 days of shooting in picture perfect  weather, Bill Rabbitt was at the top of the list in Hunter PCP, Dan Putz captured top honors in Hunter Piston, and Natalie Putz won 1st Place for Juniors.  Also, Tyler Patner did some extraordinary shooting in Pistol FT on Friday.  Tyler shot the overall high score for Pistol ending in a tie with Riz Marquez with 37/40.  Riz won the shoot-off this time giving Tyler 2nd place in open – quite a performance for a guy shooting a borrowed pistol! Congratulations to our three National Champions, to Tyler, and to all those who participated!  Below are a few pictures of our Champions.  Come and congratulate the Champs in person at our final match of the season at Crooked Creek Conservation Club.  The match is scheduled for Sunday, October 23, 2016.  I suspect our Champions will be there.
