You guys REALLY need to publish photos or videos of your match. My kid was the Army guy who showed up in uniform with duty gear -- I think he said he finished seventh (with crossfires).

He said this was the best organized combat match he's ever fired on a KD range, and wishes you guys would host these more often. States this is how the Army should run shooting comps. Pretty high praise from a kid who has shot a number of places (both bullseye and combat).

BRAVO, fellas, bravo!

    How am I a BCGC member and had no idea this was going on!? I’d have been there in a minute. The club needs more of this kind of stuff (and better publicity).

    I am terrible at remembering to take pictures of anything :-( but that is a very good suggestion and I will try to remember to do that next time.

    I talked with your son quite a bit at the match (he was squaded next to me) he a good kid with his shit all wired tight(you can be proud). He would have been right in the hunt without the crossfire, but hey that shit happens, and its why we are out practicing. :) Please tell him thanks for the kind words although I felt like we had a lot of chaos. It was a good turnout so that made for a bit more setup and check-in confusion, but in the end we got everyone on-line and mostly on target so I think we can call it a success. :)

    We do a similar COF at CRC in the spring and late fall. I usually post here, AR-15.co and AR15.com when the match is about a month out, but info on both can be found on these practiscore and club www sites

    It should have been on the club calendar but we do one up there each year. You can keep an eye out here and on the links above if you are interested in coming out.. The more the merrier..
