Re: First long range competition in Norway.

Hi.
We dont want to many visitors on our matches. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
We had a couple of swedes shooting, and one of them won the whole competition........ [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

For those that reads Norwegian you can look up www.nbsf.no
and finding some info there.
Our first match was in "Numedal", almost 80km north of "Kongsberg".
There wil be more shooting like this, for sure. I looks like this kind of shooting has got a "kick-start".
The only "problems" so far, is to get an overview over shooting-ranges, or places to shoot so far. But I think it is a lot of people working with this matter. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Finsnes, is quite far north in Norway yes.

    Yep, the competition was fun, and the whole "Long range" idea is growing really well, and hopefully there will be ranges all over Norway very soon.
    The range in Kongsberg has been well visited during "training sessions" and it has been well equiped with "Gongs" to 750 meters. Sierra 22 should be able to fill in on this aswell.

    Cool good luck on the shooting and the ljutefisk.

    I have a gun magazine from 6 months ago about a Norway long range shoot. Figuring the magazine took three months to publish the shoot must have been March 07 or something. Glad to see the sport is growing there. Hope it does same next door in Sweden.

    Great to see you having a match.

    Where is Gran?

    Back in the dark ages the 2nd Battalion, Second Marine Regiment, Second Marine Infantry Division, including my S-2 Scout Sniper unit, visited the northern reaches of your georgous country for a NATO Operation - Barfrost 1977. We flew into an airbase somewhere north of Narvik and played in the frozen tundra about half way between Narvik and Troumso (sorry for my spelling). To a man we were struck by the warm reception that we recieved from the Norwegan military and the civilian population, and the county itself - especially the artic fox that boldly and routinely went into our tents and stole our food.
