Excellent scope for the Centerfires.

Re: 2019 Mexico Nationals Smallbore Championship

Dustin, the term I meant to use is "guidebook" to shooting that match in Mexico. Don't rush. We know you have a lot on your plate.

Re: 2020 National Championship Dates

Taps, we believe you when you say somebody pointed a rifle at you while you were in the tower. No match caller is going to make something like that up. Nobody with a brain would care if you have to pause the whole match, come down out of the tower, confer with Jeanne, confer with a jury, etc. to cor...

Re: 2019 Mexico Nationals Smallbore Championship

We know you just got home but when you have time down the road could you do a writeup about what is involved from the very beginning to make that trip? Passports. Paperwork to get a personal rifle and personal ammo into Mexico. How well a totally non-Spanish speaking person would make it. Food. What...

Re: 2020 National Championship Dates

There was no one in a wheelchair competing or observing at the 2018 Smallbore/Smallbore Hunter Nationals. Multiple videos all up and down the firing line were made during the match to document this. No wheelchairs are seen in the photos and videos from that match. We were there and after 35 years in...

Re: Number of Silhouette shooters in the USA?

If every local club that runs silhouette monitored this forum, they could respond and then it could be totalled up. I have been to matches where competitors did not have access to the internet and did not know what a "forum" was. A better way to judge numbers would be if the Winsteads kept up with h...

Re: 2020 National Championship Dates

All I did was copy and paste from the current rule book in my previous reply. I did not compose any part of the rule book or any updates to it. We as do many other competitors have the personal policy of not starting the slightest controversy at a match or at night while visiting with other silhouet...

2019 Mexico Nationals Smallbore Championship

Dustin put a fantastic but brief video and report on the Louisiana Silhouette Facebook page of Day 1 of the Smallbore match. 224 competitors. They only shoot one 40 round smallbore match per day. As far as I know they do not have a hunter rifle division.https://m.facebook.com/louisianasilhouette

Re: 2020 National Championship Dates

David, the way the practice day matches work is you have a lengthy practice period many hours long first thing in the morning like 7 to 9. Then shoot the two practice matches consecutively:smallbore and Hunter smallbore. Then after the practice matches, you can practice any way you want the rest of ...

Re: 2020 National Championship Dates

Quite a few of us did the motorsports thing. Track time is always arranged so the same type engines/cars are on the track at the same time. Weather conditions are the same for each class on closed circuit race tracks unless you are referring to long distance offroad. Silhouette is very different. Si...

Re: 2020 National Championship Dates

Joe Blow in that scenario won because the Masters had high winds on their distance animals and Joe had calm conditions on his distance animals. Silhouette is still luck of the draw as to who is on the line under the best conditions.

Re: 2020 National Championship Dates

DGA, my quotes feature is not working. Even when the top ten are together on the line, it will work out so that AA, A and B shooters are on either side of the top ten. We had one national event where Wigger was to our right for all three days.

Re: 2020 National Championship Dates

In 2007 I saw Augstin Sanchez's smallbore standard heavy rifle blown up off of his fingertips on the second morning at the Raton Nationals. Tony was spotting. I do not know if Tony caught that out of the corner of his eye or not. Even the best shooters cannot overcome that. In that example, if anoth...
