    I plan on making it out this month again. July was my first time shooting practical rifle and I couldn't wait to do it again.

    I've never been, but I'm interested. I might head out to watch as I don't have elbow/knee pads or optics on my rifle.

    dood...I ran irons for years...optics are nice, but not necessary. Just come shoot, watching is for people who will hate themselves for not shooting the match.

    Word...show up at 8:30 for the orientation. Bring your rifle in hard case or soft zippered case, 150 rounds of ammo, at least two mags (30 rounders if you've got 'em), eye and ear protection, water, food, sunscreen, a good hat, comfy shoes and have some fun....like the man just said, watching will drive you nuts!

    PS- you'll need a plastic chamber flag but they usually sell them for a buck and most of us bring more than one.

    Anybody care to tell me what exactly a practical rifle shoot is? Competition? Friendly get together? Somewhere in between? Sounds like it'd be a blast:)

    The targets are from 10 feet to 250yds.

    Most are under 100yds.

    Oh good. That's what I thought. I'm using irons again and I've never shot them past 200 or so.

    Squad One, Tall guy, green shirt......Yeah there were a lot of Tyros, but everyone was courteous, patient and helpful.

    My only tip is make sure you have sunscreen!

    Hey I was in squad one too! I was the guy whos gun locked up on the last target of the last stage.....the foot in the tire stage. It turned out that a primer crapped out and jammed up the bolt. My face got a little sun but I had fun.
