    I might go just to watch for a while. Never shot at a range over 100 yards. They don't have a pre-orientation for this one, but they have one the day before (Fri 2-5pm) for the one in March.

    Hard for a LD newb to prepare for something like this when you can't use the AR action range or have anywhere to shoot w/ movement out to 200y or so. Maybe the close quarters rifle event would be better for a first timer.

    Non members are welcome.
    It's 9 am to 4 pm on sat. Kinda of a big gravel pit so no sitting area unless you bring a chair.

    What range in TCGC? There are several ranges there. Only two I know have 200yd are: backpowder/rimfire & 200/300/600yd.

    Perhaps I should ask, can anyone describe what the TCGC "Practical Rifle" is like?

    Youtube has a number of video's. Its not on the range. It takes place in the TCGC rock quarry and has a number of stages that showcase several skills, standing, kneeling, sitting, prone, from ranges of point blank to 200 yards and engaging multiple targets at various elevations.

    Sniper match is super fun! ...if you have the glass. If you dont have a BDC or mildot or some other cool reticle for on the fly shot correction its tough to do well. You wont have time to dial in shots and do well. Ranges are from 150 to 500 yards and tackle multiple ipsc size targets at multiple ranges to very small targets like golf balls or small steel or whatever. Good luck fellas!

    Here's the email from Randy regarding the February PR Match:

    The February 9th Practical Rifle match is our annual Sniper match. It will start at the 200/300 range at 930am with a mandatory safety briefing. If you show up late you cannot enter the match. We will be using the 200/300 range, the Action Rifle range and the big pit.

    Entry is $15. The normal Friday Orientation will not occur this Friday and is not required for the Sniper match. Rifle cases and chamber flags are required. Guns may not be removed from cases and cases can not be opened at any time unless told to by a stage range officer or at a designated safety table. Round count is about 40 but I'd bring extra in case you miss.

    This years match will probably be shorter and simpler than previous matches. There won't be a lot of movement but you should expect to load your rifle with loose rounds under time pressure.

    Sorry, but no magnum calibers or steel core ammo allowed to save our steel targets. Please check your bullets for steel by seeing if a magnet attracts them.

    See you at the (200/300) range!
