First off I would like to thank our volunteers that made this event possible. Quite a few of them are Hide members. We had 10 line coaches helping shooters call wind, spot hits, correct, and make adjustments from 200yards to 1000yards.

Fred Sakai
Shawn Shaw
Rob Thomas
David Kerley
Mike Cecil
Jacob Denny
John Dunlap
Sam Buckley
Jason Boak
Dennis Lorenzo
Greg W.
Dave Davis

38 of the 40 shooters made hits on paper at 1K. The ones that did not make it just ran out of internal adjustments in their 1” and lower end scopes.

AAR reports the shooters filled out indicated that 98% gave us a 10 ranking (10 being the highest) and the only real complaint was more trigger time wanted.

Lectures were given in the AM on prone shooting, data collecting, and how to run your optics. After classroom time everyone hit the range.

Collected data from 200, 300, 500, 600, 800, 900, and 1000.

There was a 10 minute firing session at each given distance. This is a short period of time but with 40 shooters it was necessary in order to get everyone though.

We finished off the day with a BBQ and small raffle.

The raffle was sponsored by:

David Kerley of TacReady
Mike Cecil of CSGUNWORKS
Mark of Storm Tactical
N.C.P.P.R.C also threw in a few free match coupons to help encourage the new shooters to come out and compete.

After reading all the AARs it looks like this was a successful event and all the shooters took something away from the course.

Thank to all that showed up,

Vu Pham

Thanks guys.

It's really the crew we have. Without them and the support of guys like TacReady, CSGunworks, and Storm Tactical there wouldn't be a clinic.

I am just the kitchen bi*ch for the BBQ after. LOL.

I am just jealous because there wasn't anything like this up here when I got started in this whole thing.

I thinks thats because you grabbed the reins and ran with it.

Shawn Shaw aka my silent partner does a lot of the work in the background that no one knows or hears about.

Without him there would not be a NCPPRC.

By the way...we have a gift to send down prior to the N vs S match...I also have an idea for the Tshirts!

Looks like it was a great class.

I would love to take a course like this. I will keep an eye out for any November offering. It may just prove to be my incentive to build up / buy a light recoiling, long range gun (like a 6.5G AR).

Ditto here - hopefully will be here for a November class. Looks like a great way to spend a weekend.

If you need a ride Pete, let me know. I have some 168 amaxes you could shoot in that match if you wanted as well. Let me know man.

thanks for the offer, but my wife isn't spending any money on herself lately. it just doesn't feel right that i'm spending and she is not. i rather just shoot the two local matches this year, and the aps matches. less travel expenses for me.

i've been babysitting more than working lately. going to the park. see u later.

Sounds good man. At least you can stick with the local ones. Would hate to see you drop out all together.

Sweet deal. That's some very good news.

Wow. I really REALLY want to learn to shoot my expensive AR accurately at long range. When can you put on another one of these? I'm going for sure. I've dropped $3.5K on a custom Larue/nightforce equipped AR and really want to learn to use the thing!

We'll be having one maybe this winter.

3.5K on a AR?! 308?

With optics maybe? I have 2K on my Grendel (no optics).

Yeah with the optics included. .223 AR

Unless it is a dedicated HP AR you probably wont reach 1000 with it.

Shooting 77s? 90s?

77s run good out to about 600 and maybe out to 800 in good conditions.

I am thinking oct maybe november.

lol. I'm not looking to shoot out to 1000 yard with a .223. lol. More like 5-600. Or whatever you think is the longest distance I can take 69-75 grain handloads out to. People keep telling me that 600 is a piece of cake with 69-75s but i'd like to learn it so i can see for myself.

I'll look into 1000 yard shooting when I finish my .308 AWP project next year.

The USMC MTU teams use the 77gr Sierra in their service rifles for 1000 yard competition. It puts them at a disadvantage to the 80 grainers, but not by much.

The shooter makes the difference at long range.

But you know that.
