Re: Boise . . . LRH Guys

I have alwayswanted to check out the vale range. I was just talking about that the other day. Would be fun to shoot in some competiotions there and get to know some more people in the sport. I might have to go check it out sometime this year. I have heard some good things about that range in the past.

    What kind of "competitions" do you guys compete in?

    what do they entail for rounds fired, distances and timing?

    They shoot from the bench once a month in Vale(third Saturday of the month), 600 for now but working on benches for 1000. 4 record targets, 5 shots each, 6 minutes per target, and 2 minutes for sighters between targets.

    I just started going over late last summer but it's a great bunch of guys, informal and laid back, definately worth the $10 to shoot. It's pretty much "run what you brung" too so you'll see everything from stock factory rifles to custom hunting rifles to full on BR rigs lined up together.

    They shoot F-class over there a few times a year also but I haven't made it over yet. It's 600,800,900,1000 yards.

    That sounds like a lot of fun. Definitely going to have to go check it out. Looks like a cheap way to have some fun.

    Great thread as I am hoping to visit the Boise area this spring. Possible relocation from the east coast, time for a change.

    Can you give me the name of the Vale range as I would like to visit it?

    The website is limited but has some general information and contacts.

    Snake River Sportsmen Home

    600 yard matches.

    I thought they had one for the F-class/Palma shoots too but I can't find it now.
