    For the state. It's a .308 urban scenario competition. Nothing over probably 150 yards. I'm gonna get worked but I think it will be so much fun. My friend organizes it and he was telling me about it yesterday. I have till March to prepare so time to start shooting!

    Yup. I asked him if it was gonna be too heavy and he said it would be fine. Although I think there is a certain amount of running and gunning. I'll ask some more details tomorrow. I need to buy a sling now

    I've been wanting to do sniper/bolt gun matches. The ones down here go way out to 800 and I think I'd like to try that. It's definately a different match with unknown distance targets. so you have to be able to range then dope without laser range finders etc.

    If it's a 150 yard max match be prepared to shoot a lot of 1" targets. they make you shoot off of sloped platforms to simulate rooftops. These can be awkward, forget about using a bipod on something like that. Make you shoot out of cars where you can't get behind the rifle properly etc.

    From what I remember you got 10rd detachable mags which is a big advantage.

    Sounds like fun. Police matches always have great prize tables. A year ago the NRA sanctioned cop matches opened up to security guards. so some of us teamed on atlas and went in and cleaned up. Well they have since shut the door on that. Many of us still run the atlas logo's on our shooting shirts to remind the coppers and military guys.

    Yeah he was saying this one focuses a lot on the team aspect. Last year I guess some guys flew in from California for it.

    yeah I'm sure. We got lots of guys on the sniper circuit and they always place in the money. Team match format would be fun. You guys trade off spotting and identifying targets for each other.

    I just don't wanna look like a dumbass out there. But I won't feel bad about getting my ass handed to me in a sniper competition by someone employed as a sniper lol
