match went well. the rifle part anyways. out of ~50+ shooters i was 23rd in the pistol match and 3rd on rifle, and im happy with who beat me and who i beat. first match so third is good for me.

coolest stage was robot movers at ~400 shooting skinnies, bc who runs sideways.

another stage started with a run with rifle and then shoot full size ipsc, 2 moa target and 1 moa target, at 635 yards. first round hit was 20 pts second round hit gets 10, 1st round hit and you move to the next target 3-6 rounds depending on how well you shoot, max pts 60pts

ive never had my heart rate up where you could see it in the reticle like that. now i understand the "shooting between heartbeats" pretty cool experience


match was put on by the team recon and sniper foundation. was a good time and met a lot of awesome guys and great shooters.
also learned i need to work a lot more pistol drills. so theres that.


How did you match go?

looked at my scedule and im slammed until may 25th but you guys are welcome to use my targets if needed just have to ge em

NICE work!! Congrats!

Id love to get out shooting May 4th and 5th but I too am slammed with work on the weekends till end of May. I have 1 8" steel target hanger but lets see who else is available and what targets they have. I would hate to have to borrow your toys with out you coming along to play. More the merrier!

For those of you interested in a little bit more diverse area, thats negligibly closer: 34°04'10.3"N 115°46'00.1"W DoF: South
Potentially get some "mid" angle if youre willing to hike. Diverse wind patterns as well, generally head or tail wind at your position then full value to the East at 400-600 and out, rarely winds to the West. Roads are decent, and there are plenty of roads in multiple directions, rare possibility of getting stuck in a sand trap. Any ground clearance above 5-6" for your vehicle, should get in and out just fine.

    Those are the same coordinates as the spot we went to.

    Good evening guys,
    Stumbled on this thread looking for others out near me. I’m out here near Casino Morongo and just got a Christianson Arms MPR in 6.5. Looking for some shooting partners. It would be great to link up and I’d be down for a meet up if you wanted to add another to the next one.

    Can’t make weekdays, but let’s try to meet up again another time. I’m working up a load and need to confirm at distance.

    Death Valley area...it is hot.
    Sadly I won’t have ammo to burn until after SHC in June. Looking forward to finally having my AI down here. Guess I’ll see some of you all in the fall. Though I have to say Alaska does have some open public land to shoot on as well.FF97C93B-DD5A-4D46-BED6-D5C0D72369A2.jpeg
