First notice: May 17, 2020 is the date for the Second Annual Western National Long Range Airgun Shoot here in Temecula!

The inaugural last year was a big success. I hope this one will be bigger and better! I'm extending the shooting line (last year we had four shooters per relay, but with some work and planning, we can have as many as nine shooters on the line at once .... allowing more shooters to fire more relays for more fun.

The distance will remain 115 yards, as will the .22 cal max and pellets only rule, but this time bipods and magazines will be allowed. Don't bother with high cap mags though, as shots per relay will still be limited. I'm raising the shooting wall height to about three feet improve target visibility and shooter comfort, but it will remain shallow enough so the rifle buttstock must be supported solely by the shooters body. Shooting from low stools is ok.

Camping sites will be available and you can sight in the day before, and when your relay times allow. There will again be a separate sighting area with identical distance and similar winds available adjacent the main range.

I'll have entry forms soon.

I will soon have some concrete benches to fire off on last year's line, so we may have more than just a low wall to fire from.  Still bipods and hand supported butstock, but might be able to support hand or wrist on bench at rear.

Hey LD, 

The AirGun Oregon team will be coming again.  That was lots of fun last year!!

This time most of the team will not be bringing $300 rigs to compete with the Daystates and the like:-)

 

So, we plan on being closer to the winners circle:-) or who knows?
