Re: AR place to shoot / rifle golf

Brad - i understand man

yall are both welcome to come up and shoot. i will keep you both updated as i get the "course" set up and the weather breaks.

i could even use some input on how to set it up if yall would like to help me with some ideas.

target ranges? currently i'm set up for out to 800 but with a little work i can get 1000 and a little more i can get 1200. nothing says that we have to go out that far so suggested ranges would be nice since i dont know how far you guys would like to shoot.

target type / target sizes / number of targets?

scoring?

my thoughts - 9 various targets shot from 3 shooting locations. ranges would not be given and shots would have to be made from a square 8-10' x 8-10' painted on the ground with marking chalk maybe even some sort of obstical for some closer targets ie a log or something. shooters allowed 1 backpack and 1 shooting mat. shooters only allowed to use the gear that they have in their packs including the pack. scoring would be birdie (-1) for a 1st round hit, par (0) for a 2nd round hit, and bogie (+1) for a 3rd round hit. lowest score wins.

also thought about setting up a "long range tic-tac-toe" target. which would be a frame holding 9 targets 6" squares set up at 600 yards. shooters would shoot a "sighter" target to the side at the same range and the closer shot would get first turn at the "board" the shots would have to be called before firing so if you hit the wrong one it would count as a miss and the other shooter would take his turn.

i was thinking that if everybody wanted we could even do like a $5-$10 jackpot round or something like that. of course not a have to thing just for a little more fun if everybody wanted. or if yall just want some practice shooting that is perfectly fine also.

whats yalls thoughts?

Yeah, the weather kinda stinks right now. Just give me a shout if you need any help setting things up. I'd be glad to give you a hand.
