APR. 11 - UTAH STATE SNIPER SHOOT
25 to 1000 yards
8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Any person can enter. Any rifle and equipment you can carry to the firing line in one trip.(about 100 yards at the most on the over the edge stages) Some stages would be: 5 minutes to walk on to the firing line, set up, and engage target. There can be multiple targets and or distances on a single stage.
One rifle per stage. You can use different rifles for different stages. I don't care if you use .22 rf up to 50 BMG. Get the job done with whatever you bring. You must write down on score sheet what rifle you use on each stage.
We will not be shooting past 1000 yards. Range find any way you can.There will be par times on most stages. Some par times could be pretty short.
Prone, sitting, standing is your choice but will probably have to use all three to be able to see the targets. You will be able to use any barricade, tree, etc. available inside shooting area if you like. No, you can not use the nice cement shooting benches they have there. There will be targets as small as 1/2 moa (well, maybe one or two smaller) with hostages close by on most. Hostage hits are minus points. To shoot or not, at any of these, is your choice.
I think there is one you won't know the par time. Then there is the walk in the park. Bring a semi auto for this. Many things can and will happen. Have fun. (WARNING: with the sound effects, this can be very intense) 30 round minimum for the gun you use on this stage.
Bring 100 rounds ammo besides the walk in the park stage. This is an individually scored match, but help from spotter on most targets is encouraged (maybe necessary on some, unless you are used to shooting alone, you can still probably do ok). We will match you up with someone if need be. When you sign in give name of your partmer and we will give them same place on firing line but different squad. There will be unique tropies for top 10 places. Plus Prizes and Dutch Oven BBQ lunch for all. Cost $50.
UPDATE: We may do these unique tropies as participation trophies too. The trophy makers will be there at the range and take pictures of each shooter with their rifle and print the picture on the trophy. It is a semi transparent picture on a glass plaque, in a stand. They gave me a sample trophy with a photo of John Wayne holding a rifle. They are really cool. Except it says John Wayne already took first place. I think most of us can beat John Wayne though. Try to let me know about a month ahead so they can have enough supplies to do everybody.
