WIND AND UPHILL CHALLENGES MAKE THIS A VERY UNIQUE RANGE. LOTS OF STEEL AND A COVERED RANGE IF IT GETS UGLY.

Unless work schedule changes I won't be able to make this one, but for anyone considering... it's an interesting place to take the class.
Building at the range for the class, covered line, and it's an impressive incline to the far end of the range. More of an elevation exercise than most ranges around here give you.

Hopefully I can catch you guys at a different east coast stop

Shooting at the 1000yard target that was a few hundred feet higher than the line was a new one for me. It was a great class and great facility.

    @Enough Said - Hi Marc, I sent an email to be registered for the Sep 26-27 2022 Mifflin clinic. I only wish it was a 3 day clinic.

    @Nik H - I know you would miss me desperately if I didn't attend LOL.

    @PlinkIt - if you don't come, who am I going to lay there on the line with and talk about it? haha

    @GBMaryland - you considering going again?

    Anyone got some links to AARs of this class? I’m gear shopping right now, trying to decide upon a Kestrel and whatnot.

    Although I brought a bunch of stuff, you really only need your stick with a bipod, ammo, mat, rear bags, carrying case and a data/notebook. I did bring a tripod and spotter. I used the tripod when it was pouring and Frank and Marc gave us some instruction. I had my Kestrel but didn't really use it. You will learn and use the weaponized math principals so I would brush up on that unless you know it well.

    Make sure your bipod has some long legs. I would also bring a couple of short boards to put your bipod on for extra elevation as the 1,000 yard targets are at an elevation of about 12-14 degrees.

    Bring tools to remove and attach your scope and spare screws...ask me how I know.

    Leave your liver at home

    Yea I wanted to come even if only as a spectator, and I'm still trying to figure out how to get around work to come anyway
    I also would love a 3 day version
    Just sent the email for the three day course.
    Wait what?!? This is a three day now?!? Yall are killing me! I'm getting out of work one way or another if this turns into a 3day or a pr2 lol
    If I have to schedule catching the covid again lol

    Maybe bring a cinder block... I think some guys had a 2x4 and a 4x4 under theirs
    I'm still tempted to try the tripod up on the front of the rifle
    Leave your liver at home
    Lol

    The email from Marc refers to the 3 day option.

    I'm about to open up the second roster for the 28th-29th and had a thought...
    If you guys can put together a solid-gonna-pay-and-will-be-there group of 14 filled seats, I can convert the second course to a PR2 like Alaska and all you PR1 grads can come back or stay for a PR2.

    It's always more fun with "familiar" students who know the flow than it is starting over with a brand new class of students. And the PR2 would ensure that you leave the course with not only a foundation to build upon but having used your data under more challenging conditions than just gathering data. In PR2 we do drills and comp prep as well as building upon your predictable, repeatable precision and accuracy.

    What say YOU?

    Someone head this up and get me a roster of SOLID 14 and I won't open the other PR1. It will just become a PR2 so you can stay over and train hard.

    Co-(cough, cough) Covid sneaks up on you, but RYE, steamed broccoli and a ribeye from Texas Roadhouse CRUSHES IT.

    Got 9 of the 14 I want and many of you are staying back to back. That makes for an incredible time.
    Thanks for the great response. -- Taylor

    That’s all provided they don’t call you out of retirement and send you to the Ukraine! 😉

    Hi guys - since being overly detailed oriented is my super power, and since we had some different versions of dates floating around, I got with Marc by email and got it straight.

    Here is the nailed down dates:

    1. 26-27 is the PR1. This is Mon-Tue

    2. 28-29 is the PR2. This is Wed-Thur

    Not sure what happens if they can't find another 4-5 students they need for PR2 class but its still a long way off and I'm sure it will all be sorted out just fine.

    Cheers

    It occurred to me that while many of us took the clinic last year and know where we stay, a PSA on accommodations for new students would be helpful. We stay at the Holiday Inn Express in State College, PA and its outstanding. Very close to the highway for getting to the range and great restaurants within very close walking distance.
