My boy wins his first LR shooting match!!!

My son and I competed in the Sportsman's Challenge Small Game ( http://sportsmanschallenge.weebly.com/ ) match on Saturday. The match was alot of fun, there were 2 courses of fire the short range out to about 500 yards and the long range out to around 800. All targets were animal shaped and made from AR steel. The format was very easy going and alot of fun. The time limits were generous and allowed for the coaching of younger /less experienced shooters as their spotter. My son is 10 years old and won the high junior position in the under 18 catagory. I was extremely proud of him (he nearly cleaned the short course in 6 minutes of the 15 allowed). It was a realy great opportunity for the new long range shooter to get some field practice and learn some things form more experienced shooters. If you get a chance check out one of the matches in the future.

Oh, by the way he shot his Rem 700 with a Hart barreled 260 Rem and suppressor, topped with a 3.5-15 NXS. Thanks to all who cheered him on and went out of their way to make him feel like on of the "big" guys.
