Okay, my buddy is going to have a benchrest clay match April 30th at a private club in Cumby. Normally he only has an open class but thought if there was enough interest about having a hunting/tactical class. So I thought some of y'all might want to give this a try. All shooting will be at 300y.

Open class is benchrest rifles with bench rests and rear bags or rear rests...but no one piece rests. Mini clays (2.25") are shot.

Hunting/tactical must shoot off bench but front support must either be bipod or bag....a rear bag will be allowed. Regular (4") clay are shot.

The way these matches work is you get there and pay your entry and get your bench/relay assignment. Get your stuff unloaded on/around your bench and put out whatever wind flags you want. Then a shooters meeting occurs and then relay A has a sight in period to shoot at paper or steel, shoot as many rounds as you want within the time period allotted (normally 7-8 minutes). A clay check is performed them you shot for score, only 10 rounds on the bench for the 10 clays for score same amount of time is allotted.

Then relay B, C, D, etc shoot their sight in and score. Once everyone has shot their first round it starts over but the only sight in period is before the first score clays are shot. So round 2, 3 and 4 you shoot your ten clays and then the next relay shoots their ten until everyone has shot at their 40 clays.

As I typed this up I realized the most important question I forgot to ask...the entry fee. I don't know but normally they range between $30 & 40 for the local matches. I'll update that info later.

Anyone interested?

I would be very interested as long as the clays are not in the shape of a friggin' prairie dog.

Of course I'm on duty that day.

Be lots of standing around bs-ing and some shooting. Good time as far as I'm concerned.

I actually prefer Sunday matches, it gives me Saturday to prep/load...to each their own.

Anyway, to answer assume questions... if he decides to add this class the entry well be the same as open and paid out separately, meaning you aren't shooting against open shooters. $35

Cumby is just east of Commerce.

If he does something like that again let me know Judd. Sucks I cannot make this one but I would really enjoy shooting something like this.

Wife will be gone all week with the kids. Bet it would be hell to pay if I hauled [censored] Sunday morning.



But I'll try.
