Just talked with the man on the ground and the range got a lot of snow. Tomorrow is going to be wet, muddy and cold.

Cancel.

Great fun at the last couple of matches. Even with some changes to the range the match director and RO's are keeping it interesting!

May match winner Curtis on the course with a tricked out 308. Fast transitions and reloads are key, but getting your hits wins matches.

Justin on the 'horse' a tricky and not so stable shooting platform...

Irons or scopes, AR's might rule the roost but they aren't the only rifles we see. Mike proves you can get it done without optics in a blistering run.

Yours truly on the course. I had one of my best runs ever on stage 3.

June's match had a number of challenging positions. We had a number of first time shooters and everyone had a blast in spite of a very hot and bright day.


Of course, transitions always get you the best pics.

Here's Justin on stage 2. If you look like you are moving fast you are probably doing it right.

This reverse rooftop proved challenging for everyone at 250 yards. There just isn't much to hold onto. Some sussed it out and made it look easy. I was NOT one of those people

Justin snapped three pics ... don't know how he got three different pieces of brass in the air--but I found yet ANOTHER pic with brass flying.


Broke my green rifle on stage 1, so I switched to my back up Colt 6920. I could tell it had been a while since I shot a 'stock' rifle. It ran like a top but is nowhere near accurate as one with a free floated barrel.

Some positions were easy, some challenging as yoga with guns! Shoot and move like you mean it but you don't have to derby slide into your position like I do.

Several new shooters including Justin's pal had fun. RO's will gladly give you tips and feedback. We are all in this for having a fun safe match, come join us in July!

Thanks to all who take the time to run clipboards, brass and spot for our competitors, without you we'd never get done!

Good times for sure this past Sunday.

I am glad the changes we made are keeping it fun and new.
