    Bi-pod, sticks, rear bag, backpack, spare mags.

    A sling can be useful but isn't used that often.

    Fun times yesterday with absolutely perfect weather.

    Reminder, if you sign up for the match and can't make it, please inform match staff asap. When you don't show up, it means someone that was on the wait list wasn't able to shoot the match.

    Yesterday morning the position of the day was a ladder. You could use whatever support equipment you wanted to shoot 5 targets from different steps, in 90 seconds. Tim opted to shoot it straight up with just a bag and a rifle. Kevin showed us all how it is done using a tripod as rear support.

    The afternoon match we used a wire spool and a barrel. 5 shots in 75 seconds. It turned out to be very difficult and not steady at all with only one person hitting all 10 targets and a few 9/10s. The tight time limit made using a tripod for a rear support a wash. More stable but a lot of time for setting up.

    Huge thanks to Bison Tactical in Boulder for letting us use one of his new Tactical Udder front bags. Pretty much all you saw was Traust rear bags and the Tactical Udder.

    Dammit! I went to bed happy last night thinking I finally beat Hoser at something..... shoulda known he’d squeak me by a point.

    Thanks Hoser for sticking your neck out there and herding us cats around to put this match on. It’s much appreciated.

    Yesterday turned out to be a pretty nice day to have a match despite the wind.

    More important than anything else, we raised a bunch of $$$ for Deputy Micha Flicks widow and children. Following next Sundays Rimfire match, I will drop off the $$$ to her. Feel free to donate cash, gift cards, restaurant gift certs, ect.

    Results can be found here.

    It is worth mentioning that Mary Beth and Charlene made a bunch of boys cry yesterday...

    Sign up is available for next Sundays rimfire matches.

    Don't forget that when you sign up for a match and don't show up, it means someone on the wait list didn't get to shoot. Not cool.

    Scotty using a tri-pod to help stabilize things off the barrels.


    Stan using a tri-pod and going 10 for 10. The small target was a 3 inch diamond...


    Dino from Team Burris off his tri-pod, also going 10 for 10.


    And off the barrels with no rear support.


    Sometimes its hard to be kinda short. We didn't have any phonebooks for her to stand on. Everyone that stayed home got beat by a girl. Like a rock Star she used a Bison Tactical Udder bag for support.

    Here are the links to todays matches. It started out a little cold but it warmed up nicely. We had several people show up early to help with set up and everyone helped out with spotting, running the timer and iPad for scoring.

    Huge thanks to Dino from Team Burris. He got there early and stayed late to be sure everything was taken care of. Without him these matches would not happen. Please tell him thank you the next time you see him.

    Next Sunday is the first Tactical Rifle Match of 2018. See you there. You can sign up at practiscore.com. Look for Hosers Steel under the clubs dropdown. Or cut and paste this link. https://practiscore.com/clubs/hosers-steel

    Lastly, thanks to everyone that donated to Deputy Flicks fund. We raised a lot of $$$ for his widow and kids.

    Fun times yesterday. While it started out cold, it warmed up to t-shirt weather by noon.

    Lots of high scores with light winds to deal with.

    The morning position of the day was inside the trailer with one bag for the first string, and anything you wanted for the second string. The catch was you had to zero your turret to turn it into a holdover exercise as well. That is assuming you had a 100 yard zero. If you use a 300 yard zero, you just got to shoot. Or, you simply forgot to hold over even though the stage concept was your idea...

    The Bison Tactical Udder bag was a huge help and most everyone opted to use it. And, Scotty reminded us that right now they are on sale. https://www.bisontactical.com/collec...dder-field-bag

    Results are avail here. Lots of 6 Dasher shooters at the top of the heap.

    Remember, starting Feb 2019 we move up to the 600 yard range.

    Fun match yesterday. Everything ran smooth and the weather wasn't too bad. Winds in the morning match made things interesting. 1 completely new shooter and 1 new shooter to the match did well.
    Great shooting Eric (morning match).

    Glad everyone liked the position of the day. It was simple and no setup needed. Your welcome!!

    The reason things ran smooth is because of how Charlene had the match setup. With only 4 squads the same people RO'ed, scored and spotted for 2 squads. That really makes the match flow when we don't have to beg to get it done. Thanks to some good friends stepping up to spot and score when I was RO'ing (Tim and Stew). Thanks it is so much fun to shoot a match and have those 2 things taken care of.

    Thanks to the entertainment committee (Zach Olson & Steve Cohen) for keeping things lively.

    Lastly, thank you Charlene. She just does everything that is needed to run the match. Putting in time setting up practiscore, the electronic scoring, and setup you name it she does it.

    Hoser stay safe see you soon!!
    will work for:
    bullets primers & brass
