We are kicking off our first long range matches of the year in Missoula over Memorial Day weekend. On Sunday afternoon, we will have a 800yd match, and then on Memorial Day there will be a "Palma" format match with stages at 800-900-1000yds. There are divisions for long range sling shooters and F-class shooters shooting F-O and F-TR. All the matches are NRA approved.
If you have not shot at the Deep Creek Range (google directions: Hellgate Civilian Shooters Asso. Deep Creek Range
) before, it is a terrific place to shoot and learn the capabilities of your rifle, ammo and skills. Camping at the range is encouraged and the city of Missoula is a short drive for those wanting to stay at a hotel.
If you are coming for the long range matches and would like to give some "National Match" shooting a try, we also have a clinic and matches on Saturday and Sunday. The clinic is instructed by the Pro staff from U.S. Tactical Supply
, and they will assist all shooters, new and established, with shooting at 200-300-600yds. So, if you have an AR15/M14/bolt action, there is a class for you. These shorter range matches are not just for iron sights anymore; you can use a scope. This will be a great chance to improve your skills with some top notch instruction.
Preregistration is a must for all matches - contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
