URSA Virginia Fun Shoot Location Selected, Date Set!!!

Here is a pic (Pics) of the venue for the first official URSA "activity". Those foothills are at 4400 yards.

Tentatively IBS 1000 yard benchrest targets will be placed at 2000, 2500, 3000, and 3500 - 37" outer ring, shots need to be on or inside the outer ring to count.

About 30 folks have indicated a strong interest in shooting and the "activity" will be capped at that - to avoid messing up the relationship with the local land owner. Some shooters expect an 8 hour travel time. Those who have contacted the Regional Director will be notified when the date is finalized.

We will post "results" on the URSA website - and the various forums - as they become available.

UPDATE (05142014 PM) - The date for this Fun Shoot is May 25th. Starting time is daylight. Claypool Hill, Va is about 15 minutes from where this will take place. Contact the RD if interested at rd-east@unlimitedrange.org. Serious shooters only!! He only has room for a few more shooters so contact him ASAP.

Re: URSA Virginia Fun Shoot Location Selected, Date Set!!!

This Fun Shoot was supposed to take place sometime in March/April but May is when this will happen. Alot of work has gone into getting this ready so bear with me. Finding the right terrain where each target will be safe to shoot and also shooting from 2000yd-3500yds from the same location is VERY hard to find. We are fortunate to be able to find such place. Contact me ASAP if you are interested.

Are you allowing spectators? I probably won't be able to load anything by then but would love to watch.
