Egg Shoot Feb 2nd

Cancelled, we'll try again sometime.

On Saturday, February 2nd we will be hosting an Egg Shoot on our rifle range.  This will be the fabled long distance 22lr Egg Shoot you may have heard about, but we've never done.  There will 10 egg targets at each of 4 distances: 50, 75, 100, and 125 yards.  You will have 2 minutes per bank on 10 eggs at each distance, and you may shoot from any position including the bench.  You may use bags, rest and/or bipods.  Additionally there will be a large piece of steel next to each bank that you may use for sighters.  However, the sighters will be shot within your 2 minutes.  You will be allowed to shoot up to 15 rounds at each distance and may use them all on the eggs, all on the sighter plate, or any combination in between.  Each egg you hit will be worth one point.  Each unused round will be worth one point.

The point of the sighter plate is that you don't really have to be 100% ready.  If you have a 22lr that will shoot, with a sight that you can see eggs at 125 yards come play.  This should be challenging, unless you're one of Lou's 22lr PRS guys.

Match fee is $20.  Discounts apply if you have earned them.

Set up will be at 9:00 am and we should start shooting by 10:00 am.  We will have this match if it's cold, but we will cancel for serious rain or snow.  We can hide in the stat shack and warm up and we might have a burn barrel or two in the parking lot.

To sign up email and let me know if there's anyone you wish to be squadded with.
