Wyoming Tactical Rifle Championship (WTRC) 2013

This past Friday-Sunday Darrell and I competed together as a team again for a second time.
Having never competed together before we had some hiccups last year.
This year those problems were all but gone.
There were some new teams this year too and it seemed most teams had raised the bar in terms of skill.
We took a solid second place. Third was a ways behind us, and we were behind 1st by about 550 points after the four field courses.
A local team (Brown/Crump) took first this year.
They are both great guys and great field shooters.
The biggest and most costly point wise for us, was that my barrel was to thin and when I had to shoot long strings of 14+ shots at distance in heat, and accuracy went down. That will be fixed for sure!
We already knew that this was likely going to be a problem.
But we went with what we had.
The other hitch was that my brake came loose during the end of course 4 (long range again of course). Again a issue that will be easily solved.
Plan on using the 7 LRM again next year.
My Glock 17 with the Leupold DeltaPoint did great out to 60+ yards.
Darrel was a speedster with the AR on the carbine targets.
Sometimes I just watched with a big grin on my face as he would run those targets.

Darrell and I had a great time together and we enjoyed renewing friendships from years past. It is a great group of guys.
We need to get a couple LRH teams to come out and play.
You will have a lot of fun and meet a lot of great people.

Here are some pics for you. Thanks to Ken Stoecklin (Bear Tooth Photography) from Casper who took all of these pictures! Maybe we can get Ken a partner and have him shooting more than pictures in the future

I am glad to see you two back competing again, if you had not beat us so bad
We need to get together so you can shoot some specialty pistols at distance.

Just let me know when you are going up north again, I'm sure that as often as we are both up that way we can work something out! I'm going up tomorrow afternoon and taking a friend who has never shot long range, should be fun.

It will be after the Nationals and World F-Class matches, toward the end of August before I will be up that way.
