  • Competitive shooting in Alaska

    So what sort of competitive shooting is there in Alaska?

    I keep debating getting into competitive shooting, but I don't know what type of competitive shooting is active in SC.

    I'm leaning towards 22 rimfire benchrest.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    NRA Bullseye pistol

    I joined the local bullseye pistol league this year. Both .22 and centerfire. I have had a great time and made some new friends, and of course improved my shooting.

            Allen,

            Thanks for the input. BR-50 sounds like something I'd be interested in, perhaps rimfire silouette. I'd like go to the match on the 21st to check it out, but it looks like I'll be out of town.

              Fun competative

              Also, there is a SASS(Singla Action Shooting Society) that can be as competative and fun as you want to make it.

                Where can I get more info? Is this similar to the Army "leg" matches?

                    Yes, NRA HP Rifle is similar to the CMP EIC match (ie "leg" match").
                    Both Service Rifle and NRA match rifle are allowed in the NRA HP Rifle Match.
                    Both are 4 stage, three postion rifle matches.

                      I see some BR folks at Bwd form time to time...we have the ranges, one could certainly organize a match....just a thought
