Boise . . . LRH Guys

Looking for anyone in the Boise area that's a member of the LRH crowd. Experienced LR Master or newbie.

I'm just getting my feet wet with knowledge . . . not even making the gear jump yet. I'm hoping to gain knowledge of rifle platforms, modifications, accessories and shooting technique. If you are a newbie like me, we might as well tackle this sport together. As I gain more knowledge I'm planning on upgrading piece by piece until I get a LR shooter.

    You know the joke about getting to Kuna....

    We do a bit of shooting around here, and BS/bench racing/theorizing. Been shooting 600(soon to be 1000) yard BR in Vale too with lots of great folks.

    Thanks Guys. KRP, how often do you guys shoot?

    I went from hourly to salary recently so the boss' are taking full advantage of my weekends now. I seem to be getting every other weekend off and am working today.

    Re: Boise . . . LRH Guys

    First off welcome to the forum.

    What is a weekend? Lately I know how that works. Work seems to be ruining my shooting time lately.

    There are a lot of different ways to go about a build. you can spend a lot of money. My buddies and I shoot extremely accurate rifles for a lot less than most. if you are interested PM me. My buddy and I have a few long range guns but we really enjoy shooting our 338 Edges at extreme long range. you will definately enjoy the sport. I work to pay for my hobby of long range hunting and shooting.

    What caliber have you been looking at if any yet?

    Depends on schedules, weather, etc.. I'm working in the Owyhees now and gone during the week mostly. They shoot in Vale once a month, weather permitting. If you want to get together sometime, for a day of shooting or just an hour or two talking shop let me know.
