Military Silhouette 2024-05-18


18 months (!) having elapsed since our last match, six shooters were most eager to knock over steel silhouette targets ranging from 110 to 547 yards using vintage military rifles with iron sights.

Target set-up took a bit longer than usual due to some last-minute t-post placement for hanging gongs used for sighting-in.

The biggest challenge shooter’s faced this match from the weather was the complete absence of wind–something Northern Nevada shooters were totally unaccustomed to!

Our next match is Saturday, June 15.

Joel M. and Chuck N. will shoot Chickens offhand (i.e., standing) next match per our handicap score protocol.
