August Field Shoot
« on: August 22, 2020, 07:29:16 AM »
Time for the August 29 Field Shoot! It looks like it will be warm but a skilled rifleman can deal with it. Bring a friend if you can.
Start time 10:00 am sharp! Safety briefing and instructions at this time.
Field shoots will be three courses of fire, The first course of fire will be from the prone at the firing line under the shelter and will have 8 targets with up to two shoots at each target. Targets are from 200 yards to 500 yards. This is not a timed event but shouldn't take too much time.
The 2nd course of fire will be in front of the line using a vehicle as a prop. This course of fire will have a pistol involved in the course of fire. You will be drawing the pistol from a holster and firing at targets before you ground the pistol and go to your rifle. This course of fire will take you out of your comfort zone as for as position goes,( leaning over a seat to shoot or shooting through a van).
The last course of fire will be with a pistol with at least four hits, targets may be from 15 yards to 100 yards. We will have a time to zero rifles before the shoot starts.
Any rifle 32 caliber or less with some magazine capacity will work. Most shooters use Military surplus or AR type rifles with Iron sights or a scope. We encourage iron sights to demonstrate your skill. We shoot at Steel AR500 targets and use spotters to call corrections. After the shoot is over we usually have a mad minute to shoot new rifles or improve skills.       
Cost is $20 per shooter under 21 and women are free.
This is a great shoot to attend after you get your Rifleman patch.
