Idaho Sniper Challenge

Here is a link to a competition event. It is limited to 20 teams and most of the slots are filled. Some of the people I shoot F-class with are going to be going. I don't shoot these kinds of events but I suspect that they are a lot of fun.

Sounds cool.
I wonder if all shooting is done from the prone position?

I called about it and ranges are limited to about 500 or 550 yards and there is also kneeling and standing shooting. No way I can stand or kneel and even be somewhat competive against rifle shooters.
But, at least I found out.

Looks like a blast! Too bad I'm not retired and it's a 24 hour drive away!

Well, I guess if none of us are coming, there will be little competition and Shawn will cruise to victory again. I wonder when his daughter will be old enough to shoot against him. That'll teach him a little humility.

Oh, there'll be competition for him there, all right ;) Actually, if my partner and I can get running on all cylinders for a change I'll be tickled no matter where we end up (well, almost). Jim The Plumber is bringing out the big guns this year - his daughter is dropping down for a weekend to shoot with him. He's bad enough, and he taught her how to shoot! I'm guessing Jesse and his brother may be there as well - after they cleaned up at the WCT match this year, a lot of people are going to be watching them closely. No more 'dark horse' status for them!

Hopefully they get the scoring right this year. The last one (two years ago) had some 'large math errors' - frustrating to say the least.

See ya there, Shawn!
