Just bought a biathlon sling today and am setting up 22 spinner targets on my property. We have some good exercise trails we run on our land and I’m pretty excited about it. Told my wife today my plan and now she thinks she wants a sling as well so she can participate.

Wife and I have done both winter and summer biathlon. She was Colorado State Champ for Winter Biathlon and won both a run/shoot and bike /shoot biathlon two years ago. She crashed on the mountain bike, ran with her arm in a sling she improvised, and still won. The run/shoot and bike/shoot were run one right after the other on the same day. Coming up again in June. Anschutz 1827 and Krico 360S grip activated Biathlon guns.

Anyone reply about something like this on east coast?
Where on the East Coast? I used to live in Massachusetts and there are a good number of biathlon programs in New England. Used to race both summer and winter biathlon at Harvard Sportsman's Club. A few very good clubs in NH and Ethan Allen in Jericho, VT is among the best known biathlon venues in the US.

Maybe PA, VA etc. I thought this looked interesting. We have nothing close to this in OH region.

I’m in WV will have to look into it and see if there’s something. I actually had heard there was winter biathlon up in Vermont and New Hampshire

I think I would find a winter biathlon more interesting if you are shooting at distant targets and could use a bigger rifle. I do a fair amount of Nordic skiing, and it would be easier to carry a heavier rifle that way.
