Tucson 1000 Yard Prone Match - August


Tucson Rifle Club's monthly 1000 yard prone match will be held this coming Sunday, August 26, 2007.

Squadding will be in the pits at 0630. If the range office isn't open yet and there's no sign-in sheet on the outside table you must still sign in before you leave for the day.

Firing begins promptly at 0700. Course of fire is two strings of 20 shots each, with unlimited sighting shots, in a block time of one hour. Prone position, supported by sling, bipod or front rest. Service or match rifle, any sights.

Good News! The cowboy shooters have apparently moved their 4th Sunday shoot to Tombstone, so it is unlikely that we will have a range conflict with their group. This should allow us more time to conduct our event this month.

Match fee: $5

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Tucson Smallbore Prone Results - August

Nine shooters attended the August 12, 2007 monthly smallbore prone match at Tucson Rifle Club. The weather was hot and humid, but the wind conditions were reasonable. Two shooters fired "clean" targets: Jim Denovchek at 50 yards, 200-13x and Greg Fallon at 100 yards, 200-11x. This proves that older model rifles can still perform well, as Jim used a CMP Kimber 82 and Greg used a Winchester 52. Junior shooter Nathan Abel joined us for the second month, having borrowed and fallen in love with an Anschutz offered for sale by Eric Lute.

A summary of all scores follows:
