Sniper Competition

Guys and gals,

I am shooting in the Tiger Valley Team Sniper competition in two weeks. It is held in Waco, TX. I will be the "sniper" and my cousin will be the gas gunner.

I started a shooting school recently after the request of my gunsmith and many others in the TX Triangle area wanted to learn how to shoot long range. Well I figured I would put my shooting skills to the test. Might as well huh?

ANywho, this is the stick I will be shooting...she's a sharp stick on top of that!

I haven't been to one of those shoots. But, I may try to get down there to see what it's all about. Good luck!

Re: Sniper Competition

TJ runs a good match in Tiger Valley, hes a very good guy. I run the TPRC here in Phoenix every year. This past years was 3 weeks ago and it was a blast. If you never seen one before, take a look at our match website(IM Not trying to sell anything) if your interested. TPRC2011 Match its a fun time and definitely challenging.

Good luck to you!!

Scott

Re: Sniper Competition

Thanks Scott.

Does Tiger Valley post the match format/rules in advance? I couldn't find them on the web site.

Re: Sniper Competition

If they're not on his website, then check over at the hide. They post up a bunch of stuff about the match there too.

Re: Sniper Competition

Spec dyn is right. I found it over on the hide. I had to ask about 10 people to be my gasser until my cousin finally said yes. Everyone else was too scared. I've never understood people who stay on te sidelines. Guess it's easy for them to be a Monday morning QB. I can't wait. I will have a blast! I have put over 1000 rounds down range out to 1300 yards in the last 2 months and am getting about 98% first round hits on my Tubb targets. The more I shoot my 6.5x47 the more I love it!

Just can't wait to get my 338 Norma back from the smith now!!!!
