High Power Matches at the ISRA Range
Tim D. asks: I am interested in joining
the range and participating in the high power matches. … I
guess I should ask if there are memberships available for the range at this
time, and what the process is to join. Do I have to meet with someone
first, or submit a resume, or? And what time of year do the matches start
can be found on the ISRA website at www.isra.org Membership does not require a referral or
anything like that, but you will have to have a one-on-one orientation before
you can use your key-card. Most of the
high power activities begin in April. There will be a high power clinic
at the range in April that you might want to participate in.
If you poke around
the ISRA website you will find the range schedule which will show all high
power activity at that location. Also at www.isra.org
is a link to Illinois Highpower. (Or you can link directly to it at www.illinoishighpower.org )
On that site you will find a link to the "Ten-State Schedule" which
shows all high power matches in Illinois and surrounding states.
Winter Wars Matches – Comments regarding new “battles”
and courses of fire
Phil R. writes: How about a "Battle for North
"Pacific Wars" along with your other excellent ideas?? A bit more inclusive to
draw out those British/Italian rifles.
As much as I hate shooting rapid standing; I think you should leave it
in the format. It is a great score
spreader, appropriate for the match and things just won't seem right without it. If safety is your concern--a few words of
warning about staying on the paper might help.
It anything-drop the sitting and replace with a slow fire prone so we
can get zeroed in on the heart. This
will also help those shooters who never get dialed in to the paper. JMO--best
regards and thanks for a fun and unique match.
