    No issue at all. Just be sure the ammo isnt steel core or anything like it.

    Fun match with some new challenges: the VTAC wall and a stage on the natural terrain of the shotgun ranges (see pics). Good turnout, looking forward to the rest of these matches this year.

    Targets the last few matches have been out to 325+

    I use 55's and do fine for the most part, but as we all found out last match, some targets wont go down with that light of a bullet if you hit 'em low. (yes, I am talking to you LaRue's.....)

    I bring 200 per match, and that cuts it really close, (mainly because I suck and waste a lot of ammo) but if you have any sort of shot discipline you should be totally fine.

    Dunno if I'll make this one, but I will try. We'll see if I can swing the 4hr. drive from Taos, NM to Pueblo West by 9am.

    hope this helps,
    Kenny

    I had a great time today!

    I have sooo many learning points form today, I can't wait to get my butt to the range and get it all learned for good.

    Well done on this match, Hoser!

    agreed. I was glad to see a guy running an AK out there among the masses of AR's. Although he didnt do very well, he did a damn good job considering he was running true open sights, at those distances and those situations. kudos to hoser and justin as well for running another great match. I had a lot of fun

    Here are a few pics from this month's match.













    Thanks to Chris Marsh for taking the photos while I was running the timer.

    If there's nothing wrong with having to show an ID to buy a gun, there's nothing wrong with having to show an ID to vote.

    For legal reasons, that's a joke.

    Days like today remind me why I do this.

    Shot some guns and hung out with friends.

    I shot like crap, but it was still fun to run around and get dirty.

    One of these days I'll get the whole rifle/optic combo dialed in and see if I can't make something happen.

    I used some steel cased crap ammo that I had laying around, and I'm sure that wasn't really helping anything. I tried learning how my ammo works at different ranges, but I can only get out to 200 yds. Even then, I'm not getting really spectacular accuracy.

    Surprisingly, I had no problems hitting the 385 yd IPSC steel (with the strobe light attached). The other targets that were 9" across were a tad difficult for my ammo/rifle/optic/end-user combo.

    I'll get it one of these days, though.

    I had a great time out there this month. This was the first match I have attended with the scope on the gun, and I can now say it makes a helluva difference (thanks again chris). The natural terrain stage was one of the better ones I have seen created, IMO, and standards were fun. I blew the last stage, but there was still a good time had by all.
