Please arrive at the left side of the Angeles rifle range no later than 7:30am to sign-in and get assigned your shooter numbers.

Bravo.

Randall spots:


Eddie's Savage with new Bushnell scope:


Guys, you don't need a million-dollar weapon and scope to shoot these matches. Eddie consistently scores very high with this combo.

Danny's scope:


Many claim you need a mil/mil scope. Danny shoots just fine with an MOA scope. He won a match with it. And the winner of yesterday's match shot an MOA scope. It's the shooter, not the equipment.

CaPRC's next centerfire match will be Sunday, May 27th.

CaPRC's next rimfire match will be Sunday, June 24th.

We had five or six new shooters at yesterday's match. If you are looking to get started in match shooting, please join us in May or June. The rimfire matches are especially suited for getting your feet wet in match shooting.

You mean it's not for looks? Wasn't sure if it was allowed or not.
So many rules so little time. Looked down the line to see if anyone else was using theirs and then beeeeeeeeeeep. Lesson learned.
CAPRC screen name is Radiation Shooter by the way.

Dont worry you're not the only one. I still had my scope doped for 200 yds for this stage. I was lucky enough to get two shots in.

You don't need a sling in standing. A lot of times it will actually be detrimental to your shot.

I think I saw one of you vids where you were shooting w/o one. Can you give me any pointers? I can't seem to keep my point of aim steady w/o one. Maybe if I hold the rifle long enough I might be able to build some muscle memory.

1. Orient body for NPA.
2. Bone support, not muscle support.
3. Trigger control.
4. Break the trigger immediately when the sight picture is good.

1 and 2 above will keep your wobble centered on target.

3 and 4 will mitigate the effect of wobble.

Try to break the trigger as your sights approach the center of the target or come into the target, not when it's on target.

Do you use a sling during sitting/kneeling position?

Thanks for the tips. I will definitely have to try them.

Yes, I use a sling in sitting. Although, for the course(s) of fire you guys shoot, I'm not sure how field expedient a sling will be. Using a Tactical Intervention quick-cuff sling is probably the best bet for this type of shooting.

You bet. If your new to positional shooting and using a sling, check out the Appleseed classes out in Piru. It's a basic class, but its all about learning proper positions, sling use, NPOA, etc.

Not new to me. That's how I learned to shoot in the Corps. What is new to me is not utilizing one during standing.

I'm not a Distinguished Rifleman like Jonathan, so take my opinion for what little it is worth, but I don't think the sling helps in standing or offhand either. The sling helps tons in kneeling, sitting, and prone--anywhere the elbow can rest on something and the sling can maintain the angles of the arm relative to the weapon. That way the weapon is supported by leather and bone rather than muscle.

Jeff Cooper thought the same thing for field shooting.
