Rifle matches

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Also posted in long range competition but no response.
I went to my first match this weekend (6-12-10) just to watch. Should have stayed at home now I really got the bug. I would like to try it. I need some equipment but don't want to break the bank.
I don't need the best but I don't want junk either. the things I need are shooting coat,sling &
spotting scope stand . Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks
Ramp

(Update) Ordered a shooting coat -- Creedmoore

    Do your self and your wallet a big favor when choosing glass. Get the absolute best you can afford the first time around. I realy like Swarovski, but theyre not cheap. I dont have a clue on the shooting jacket or tripod.
    Good luck
    Theres some Swaro optics and tripod f/s by a guy named Mike_l in the L/R/H classifides in the ''Optics for sale'' section.

    Like BBob said you might want to look at other types of long range such as F-Class.
    I did see this Creedmoor coat over on 6br.

    Good Luck and HAVE FUN
