g. Hearing and eye protection.
h. Clothing appropriate for conditions.
i. Hydration
j. Food for lunch.

This is the absolute minimum amount of gear required for the match. If you want more, you may bring it, but you must carry it with you at all times, and it must be man portable.

Basic information for this match:
All J.S.T. competition events will be timed. In the J.S.T. competition, the longest walk will be approximately 300 yards. The event will have moderate exercise. No running to events will be required; however, the event time limit may require some quick movement on the part of the competitor. The competitor, carrying gear, needs: the ability to walk up steps, to walk down steps, to be able to walk at least 400 yards with all gear, to negotiate slightly rough terrain, and to be able to handle their rifle in position shooting other than prone. IF you are a disabled person, please let the staff know before you come. We can make arrangements for you, ALL disabled Veterans that want to shoot, and are capable to do so are WELCOME to shoot this match. I got ways to help you out if you need it. All participants must sign a liability waiver.

SAFETY
NRA Safety Rules:
1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.

3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.

All rifle muzzles will be pointed up or down when transported, and pointed downrange when at a firing position, or may be pointed in a different direction required by a Range Officer (at staging areas). All rifles will be carried unloaded with either: a colored safety flag, or the bolt removed. All weapons will be loaded on Range Officer command. All weapons will be unloaded on Range Officer command. All weapon handling will be done at Range Officer command.
Rifles will be loaded, pointing down range, and the bolt will be closed when the competitor locates the target and points the rifle at the target.

I'd love to shoot this match but it's VERY cost prohibitive given my current location. :(

guys,

I am over half full in 24 hours.

If you want a slot let me know ASAP

1858,

If its something I can work with let me know. I will get you on the line.

That's really nice of you but I'd be looking at close to $1,000 just for the airfare. Add in car rental and accommodation and it'd be $1,500. If I'm going to pay that much, I'd have to take a class to make the travel expense and travel time worth it.

Thanks though.
