Anyone going to the USPSA match at Douglas Ridge Jan 7?
How many rounds of ammo does the shooter typically use in this event?
Weather report says snow Jan 7. Hope it is wrong!
Looks like round count for stages is 98. I would bring at least twice that!
There are two Texas stars, two swingers, and one rotating target. Easy to
blow through a lot of ammo on those!
Do you guys know if the match tomorrow is still on?
I'd have liked to go watch you guys at the match, but....brrr!
It has been canceled according to Facebook DRRC Action Shooting page
