Benchrest Match Hoover, Alabama
« on: December 05, 2020, 08:55:27 PM »
Our next match will be on Saturday, January 2nd. 1:00pm   

This match is open to both kids and adults.
There is NO ENTRY FEE.
The guns will fall into 4 Divisions: PCP, CO2, Break Barrel, Pump
The Shooters will be divided into 5 Classifications: Preteen, Teen, Adult, Senior(62-69), Super Senior (70+).
The match will consist of 4 arrays of 10 targets each. The steel silhouettes (chicken, pig, turkey, ram) will be set up at the 15, 20, 25 and 30 yard line for Pump, CO2 and Break Barrel. 35,45,55,65 yards for PCP.
Shooters will be given 6 minutes to both sight in their gun and knock down the 10 targets in front of them.(the match is designed so that scopes will not have to be reset at each array)
Shooters will be allowed to shoot sitting, prone, standing or from a bench.
Only PRETEEN shooters will be allowed to use a rear bag for support.
The shooters will be allowed to shoot as many sighter shots as they want to determine their grouping but when they "start for record" they must tell their scorekeeper who will count and record the 10 shots. They can return to the sighter plate if need be.
Any target that is hit but does not fall will still be counted as a hit if it has a mark on it upon inspection.
At the end of the 6 minutes, shooters will move to their next shooting position while the target setters go down range and reset the targets. Everyone will shift to the next array when directed by the Range Officer and continue until all 4 shooters have shot all 4 arrays.
If there are multiple people with perfect 40 scores, there will be a "shoot-off" where the smallest targets will be placed at farther distances. We will repeat this until we have a winner.
The Shooters scorekeeper may assist the shooter with charging the gun and/or reloading if the shooters gun has a magazine that holds multiple pellets.
