Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

Ballistic64,

The JP is considered a 'clamshell'. You can attend any match you want. You do not have to be at all of them unless you want to be in contention for V.H.A. 600 yard awards at the end of the year. Being at all of them would give you the best opportunity to earn the most points.

Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

I'm so glad to see you and Janet Hanson come visit us here at LRH. Welcome.

I read about the caliber limit at the Jamboree and was thinking that since one of your motto points was "camaraderie" that you could introduce a "Camaraderie Category" at the jamboree that was more of an unlimited demonstration shoot. The paying participants would recieve a T shirt saying they shot in the special event but there are no winners or losers. It is a time where shooters of big and small bore guns sort of show off their wares. More like an antique car show minus the prize. It would bring more people to the Jamboree and would foster friendships of people with similar interests. Maybe this would include a seminar on some aspect of achieving the outer limits of accuracy at the extended ranges.

If the only difference is the caliber and energy of the guns being used there should be some way to include the big bore members of this accuracy and skill seekers club. As you well know, we as shooters should find more ways to share our similarities and to put the appropriate emphasis on our differences. After all it is these differences that keep things interesting.

I have to go assist a customer now but I will be back on tonight to respond to some of the others here.

Again thanks for stopping by. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

TJ,

Glad you stopped in to post....

I don't take offense to anything you said... I realize you guys gotta pay the bills... I have had nothing but good experiences with VH mag.

I guess I should clarify what I meant....

In the early years of the Mag.. or early issues... or some of the first issues I have I enjoyed the articles of the guys like me, you , the next door neighbor.... then I started to see articles with well know "famous" gunsmiths, hunters etc. I guess that dissapointed me a bit because I took it as advertising for them... which they didn't really need...
I don't want to name names and start a ******* match... and this is solely my opinion on this matter....
I just enjoyed the feeling of the neighbor down the road articles... but my take on things is they started to go towards the more "famous" individuals...

I still enjoy the magazine... I usually read it at the outdoor store I stop in everynow and again...

more than likely I will annie up for another year....

so what we gotta do to get some more LR tech. or Hunting articles published????

Again, glad you are on the board... would like to see more of you guys here givin advice or opinions....

Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

We see a lot of guns at the Jamboree that aren't there for the Shootout. There is sight-in on Monday plus fun and games on other days of the week. Lee Fischer brought his 3600 yd gun and let everyone take a peek. We like to see what's new and innovative. The Shootout is only a two day competition in the five days of Jamboree.
Just, PLEASE, don't bring a 50. It will rattle the windows in the clubhouse.

Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

Well I see I'm just going to have to come out for a jamboree some time and experience first hand what it is all about. I can only imagine what a 3600 yard gun is all about. There wouldn't be any articles on this gun in the magazine now would there? That is a story I would like to read.

That reminds me. I was wondering if there is possibly going to be a future 2500 yard club? I'm not even in the 500 yet [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] but I know of at least 1 person here that might be interested in trying for a 2500 after he gets in the books at 2K (hopefully at the end of this month).

Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

Come on out. It's a great time. We call it "Summer Camp for Shooters".
We haven't published an article about Lee's gun but have shown a picure. It's a sight to behold. You just have to come see for yourself.
After you get qualified for the 2000 Yard Club, we'll talk about 2500, okay?

Re: Varmint Hunter Association.

I would like to see some 1500, 2000, and some grand slam (all four clubs) yard patches and t-shirts. Currently, there are just patches for the 500 and 1000. It couldn't be too much to make a few more items could it? I haven't had anything new to put on my shooting jacket in three years!
I also would like to see a 2500 yard club, and maybe a 1 mile club. Just a suggestion!
