Saturday, Feb 24th, the Talking Rock BPShooters are hosting our match at the PCSC complex and is the first for 2024. First range on the right when you come through the gate. Folks been working hard over the winter on range improvements and upgrades for all your shooting comforts. Come by and check ’em out.

It is called an over the log or chunk gun match. It is a one of a kind match with unique scoring and format. We decided on this format and type of match as many of our group shoot the Alvin York match in Pall Mall TN, north west of Knoxville which occurs in March every year. This allows for practice and checking equipment before they compete against 120 or 130 shooters from throughout the midwest. It is a great first match as it is not a lot of shots and plenty of time to analyze your hits and talk to your fellow shooters. You literally change your target after each shot so you can see what is going on. No spotting scopes needed here for this one!

For those of you who do not like to get up and down from the ground, we will have two classifications, prone and bench. You do not have to have any special equipment like a “chunk gun”. No special clothing although many wear their authentic blue Alvin York overalls. See the attached picture for clothing optional dress. It is how the guns evolved and many shoot what they brung so to speak. So basically any gun, any sights, any caliber and shoot with us. So if you have a new rifle, new load, new anything and want to test it out, great match for that. Reason is you do not have to worry about sighting in your rifle, you bring the bullseye to where you are shooting. Very unique for sure and tough to describe. Just hit the paper somewhere in a group. Remember to bring your favorite 50 yard sight in target for your warmup practice shots.

MEMBERS: Remember that we will have a Trade Blanket at all monthly meets starting in 2024. Bring any items you would like to sell, trade or barter. The items can be anything – Old, New, Blades, Period Clothing, and all manner of supplies.
