    Default Ramah/Ben Lomand IPSC

    Ben Lomand Gun Club in Ramah hosts monthly USPSA/IPSC Matches run by High Plains Practical Shooters. Normally the 3rd Saturday of every month. http://ecouspsa.com/schedule.htm

    Plan on 5 stages and a 10:00 start time.

    The map on the ECO site sucks and will get most normal humans nothing but lost and pissed. Go here for more info on Ben Lomand http://www.blgc.org/

    I thought there was a thread for this match, but I can't seem to find it.

    Every third Saturday of the month, there's a match at Ben Lomand Gun Club. We follow the USPSA rules for this match.

    Set up starts at 0730, and the shooter's meeting is at 0945. We typically run 5 or 6 stages and a round count averaging around 120 rounds. I recommend bringing aproximately 200 rounds.

    I do a new shooters safety orientation before the match. This starts at 0730. Please contact me or the club president before the match if you would like to take the safety orientation. After completion of the safety orientation, you can shoot the match. We use a mentor system and pair new shooters with experienced shooters during the match to assist them. All USPSA clubs operating in Eastern CO require a new shooter take a safety orientation before their first match.

    The 3rd Sat of every month unless we are forced to canx due to weather. Considering the amount of mud out there last month, I can tell you it takes a lot for us to canx, but it happens sometimes.

    I just bought a house outside of Elbert so I really have no excuse not to attend some of these shoots. Will definitely have to check it out.

    The new shooters orientation starts at 0730. Find me (Sean) or Todd or Ken when you get there and we will get you and your buddy started.

    If you have any questions about the gear or ammo to bring for the match, or you might need some help getting additional gear for the match, PM me. It helps a lot to have the gear you need at the match, and I have kinda acquired a few uh... extra... items over the years as do most regular USPSA shooters. We can usually help out if additional gear is needed, expecially if we know beforehand.

    I just wanted to say thanks to the guys who put on the new shooters class and everybody who gave advice and helped the new guys out. This was a humbling but fun match.

    I was also wondering if anybody has the contact info for the gentleman who had the "SHOOT MORE, BITCH LESS" stickers. I forgot to get ahold of him after the match and would really like to get a couple of stickers from him. Feel free to PM his info. I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks, Brian.

    Can't remember who's selling them, but I'll poke around and see what I can find.

    Cha-lee pulled out a division win by a whopping 0.06%, and I got beat out of a production win by a lowly C class shooter having a good match (me, not so much).

    Till next month.
    I wish I won.... I was Second in Limited by a massive 0.58%. Oh well, there is always next time

    My favorite stage was my stage with all of the running around. Its not common to have a stage where you can run full out for long distances between shooting positions. I ended up ROing the majority of my squad on this stage so I got an extra workout. Thats ok though because I can stand to lose some weight.

    Here are my video's from the match for all of those that missed out.
