North Texas LRSP Spring Shoot

OK, its finalized.

There will be a North Texas LRSP shoot on Sunday, April 28th, from 9 AM to 5 PM.

This match is being held at the Top Gun Shooting Club in Leonard, TX (just outside of Bonham). It is being sponsored by Top Gun and Dragon Rock Farms (my place).

It will be a 3 event shoot, 200 yard benchrest, long range silhouette match (100-400 yards), and a field event (no marked distances, varying targets). There will be winning prizes, door prizes, and surprises. Our only limitation right now is 500 yards. Your limitation is the entries must be LRSP's.

Costs will be an entry fee based on guns, 3 guns for 3 shoots is $10 per gun, $30 total. Want to shoot more, or shoot twice, max is $50. I, personally, will get $0. The range gets it all for the whole range + 2 RO's for all day event.

We anticipate BBQ onsite and refreshments.

We will be seeking sponsors for prizes, door prizes, and support from anyone in the shooting industry that wants advertizing. This is being held in the spring to offer an alternative to MOA's shoot in the north.

I will have a sign-up form available on here soon, as well as sponsorship forms for any shooting related businesses you are friends with.

Any, as a bonus, the owner wants to start regular handgun silhouette matches. We're finding targets as we speak.

So, mods, please pin this up.

Shooters in the Texas, OK, LA, NM, or anywhere who would like a nice Sprintime drive, put this on your calendar.

Re: North Texas LRSP Spring Shoot

OK, been getting some questions about the shoot, and frankly, maybe the questions were a little more detailed than I was prepapred for 4 months in advance, but here goes. Word of warning, was not planning on making this event cast in concrete at thsi time, so some things may change/evolve as we get closer.

Event 1 - 200 yard benchrest.

Basically IBS 200 yard targets and shooting arrangement, unless we decide differently.5 shots for group, 5 shots for score on 5 targets with 1 sighter target. Wind flags, etc, allowed. strict time limit of 2 minutes per course of fire? Thought about a limit on caliber to 30 and under, but not sure thats necessary.
Biggest change will be the guns. Strictly LRSP with max 18" barrel, but from a bench ala our big brothers. Rests and rear bags allowed.
Scoring to be smallest group to largest in rank order and highest score to lowest in rank order and ties settled by shootoff at 500 yards. I like shooting.

Event 2 - double distance silhouette.

Since the range is in yards, so will be shoot. chickens at 100 yards, rams at 400 yards, etc, etc. Standard handgun silhouettes.
Shooting positions are open, just no benches. Both a scope and a iron sight class. Standard time limits of 2 minutes per bank of 5 animals. Again, winners in rank order. Ties go to chickens at 500 yards.
Guns? I'm all for few rules, but? Want to stick with IHMSA guns rules, or go for broke? No target damage. Range has a 338 max.

Event 3 - Field

All kinds of targets at all kinds of range, probably about 10 total over 500 yards. Shooting from ground, spotter OK, time limit.
Again, winners by rank score of # of hits by time limits. Ties to be settled by lollipops at 100. 10 total, 2 minutes.

Grand prize winner will have smallest rank score. If there is a tie, shootoff will be 10 clay birds from 50 to 500 yards. Strict time limits of 2 minutes.

We have the range from 9 AM to 5 PM and I hope the day is full, with time for lunch, and prizes from vendors and suppliers. Know anyone, let me know and I'll be glad to send them a flyer.

Advance registration form available now via email. I have also sent them to the range site.

Well, enough structure for you?

Suggestions greatly appreciated.
