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.

Re: Boise . . . LRH Guys

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.
