Sorry no stage descriptions prior to the event. Real world style scenarios. Less the stalking, live targets, and 2 way ranges. Loads of fun. I don't have a Six story tower yet so there won't be any high angle stuff. -PM

We are bringing a truckload of folks from the Northeastern part of Louisiana. Sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun.

Is this open to spectators? I would like to enter but I don't have the needed tools and skill level yet but would like to pick up some pointers if possible.

Do to unforeseen circumstances myself and Cody are not going to make it. Really wanted to be there but sometimes things just don't work out.

Re: Tactical Long Rifle "Kill the Steel" - in cent. AR

If nothing comes up, I will be there with a friend or two to spectate. I will compete next year (or next time). Sounds like it should be fun and only a few hours away from Fort Smith.

Had a good time guys, you have some tricky wind!

Great prize table and a great bunch of guys to shoot with. Looking forward to the next one.

Congrats to Floyd on the win!

Can you get us a full sponsor list so we can send thank you emails out?

Re: Tactical Long Rifle "Kill the Steel" - in cent. AR

Wanted to say thanks to Patrick and crew for putting on a match for all of us to participate in.

As usual,I learned a lot.Mostly about how to try to read the tricky wind you guys have there.

You had a great bunch of R.O.'s also.I know they will want to shoot the next one.

Congratulations to Floyd on some great shooting in some rough conditions.I think my rifle is about 1 Lb. lighter after getting all that talcum powder dirt out of it.Muzzle brakes make for an instant dust storm in that powder.

Thanks to Sierra,Hornady,Leupold and Choate for their generous donations to the prize table.

Hopefully will see all of you next episode........

Todd

Re: Tactical Long Rifle "Kill the Steel" - in cent. AR

Any pictures of the event?
I had planned to go unless something came up and something did, gunshow. And I am glad I stayed for the show, I had a good weekend of trading and buying. I will definitely come out for the next one and I will more than likely participate. Hope to meet some of you there and learn from you. Glad to see everyone had a good time.

Thanks to all the competitors for coming out and shooting. I had a good time running the match. Hope you all had a good time shooting it. Looking forward to shooting in the Bash against some of you all.

Also a sponsor was Holland's Shooters Supply

Re: Tactical Long Rifle "Kill the Steel" - in cent. AR

Just wanted to say thanks, later is better than never right

One of the things I enjoy the most are the shooters that come to a match, I really enjoy all the lies they tell!

I can only see match's getting better. Throughout the 2 days I was treated like I was 'at home'. I also appreciate (lucky it was not me) the fact that these guys worked before sun up and after sun down, then off to work on rifle problems for some of the competitors.

Every chance I get I will try to come down and support the Range. I think it would be great to host a .308 or .223 only match as well.

I will send some thanks out to Sponsors as well. I feel like you guy's gave away quite a bit of stuff considering the newness of the organization. There was a lot of experience there and sure appreciate all the veterans and service members.
