COSSA has over 800 acres of premier range facilities available and is well known for the John

    It would be a semiautomatic rifle like a AR or M14. As the match gets closer we will allow bolt guns if not enough people have signed up.

    In August or September we plan on having a larger competition for bolt gun or gas gun. The stages were the same for Limited and Open division. The farthest target was 600 yards.
