2020 Nevada State Championships June 12, 13 & 14

Save the dates!!

Come and enjoy the beautiful Shoshone Range at the Square M Ranch located just south of Battle Mountain, Nevada.  Last year the weather was spectacular and we are hoping that the month of June will not disappoint once again (July is a little warm).

 

It will be a challenging course, definitely not as difficult as last year's day one but more like the years prior.  You'll need wind data (we have requested a max wind speed of 10mph, we'll see if our request is approved) and be sure dust off your upslope and downslope data as well, there will be shots at 30 degrees that feel like 45...

 

Registration, event info, course info and other tidbits will be added in the following weeks.  Lunches on Saturday and Sunday will be provided, we will also have the portable bathroom on hand as we have had for the last couple of years.

 

Please post up opinions regarding having the pistol match on Friday or Saturday after the rifle match.  Having it on a Friday means people need to arrive a little earlier to compete.  Holding it on Saturday is tough because everyone is beat after the first day of the rifle match.  Since GP pistol points are desirable to some competitors we would like to have the pistol competitors input on the event date scheduling...

 

Thank you AAFTA FT competitors!! 

 

As they say in Battle Mountain, "Are you tough enough?"!!

I think our club would prefer a Friday afternoon Pistol shoot.  We plan on coming in late Thursday evening.
After a rifle match at that place and then some food... one is totally done for the day!

Registration form.

 

For those that are going to make it, please post up to confirm and send in the registration form as you like (there are three different ways noted on the form).   Feel free to post up with questions.

 

I have been working on the course layout with an eye to making it challenging but not insanely difficult.  The weather out there has been epic recently and we are hoping to ride that wave of 80 degrees days into June.

 

Be well, be safe, see you in Battle Mountain!

Scott and I will be attending!  This is a one of a kind FT match, unlike any other match you will find anywhere in the USA, it should be on the bucket list of every serious FT shooter. Just remember the the match motto "Are You Tough Enough!" 😱

We would only not offer a refund if the competitor dropped out, if we cancelled the event we would refund everyone's fees.

 

Did a pre-course build scouting mission this last weekend to double check a few things and test some target mounting ideas.  A coupel new lanes were cleared throiugh the woodsy areas and we cleared a legit sight-in range as well.

 

If you guys make it out early to help you'll be heaped with praise and showered with gifts....well maybe the first one... lol  You guys were awesome last year and I think we have streamlined the setup process some to help reduce the effort involved.  Always appreciate any help you guys can give, same goes for the Ashland crew, could not have done it without everyone last year!!

Pat & Larry,

Road is good, I have a Ford Transit Connect LWB micro van (about 6" of ground clearance and quite a bit of front overhang) and I can make it up to both campsites if I do my part (two spots where you need to approach the crossing at a slight angle).  The road is a little better than last year, the creek is not running at the crossings and from what I can tell it hardly ran out the canyon at all this winter (not erosion at the crossings at all).   Due to some work the Tamaras did on the collector the road is slightly smoother than last year (they drove a giant tracked backhoe up the entire canyon road).  Cameron made it up in his VW Jetta when the road was in worse condition and is planning on making it again this year in the same car...

 

John, you are in for a treat!!  Thanks for the heads up.

 

It looks like if everyone who has said they will make it, makes it, we will count again as an AAFTA GP!!  You guys are the best! 😉

Let's see if this map attaches....  Improved the map a little for this year, shows the entire route from BM to the canyon over a map, terrain and satellite image.

My flight is booked. I'll be there in time for the pistol match too. Anyone willing to share? Even better would be a pistol with irons or a red dot.

Looking forward to meeting you John.

Bob has told us ( SVFTC ) he was done with FT and was even questioning us selling his gear. at the time we talked him down in doing that, but likely Bob K at minimal done for the 2020 season.

John, what's up buddy! Get ready for a fun venue. 

 

I have four FT pistols. I'll be bringing two or three. You are more than welcome to use any of my spares. I have a custom Bottled 2400kt w/ LW and prod trigger upgrade, an airmax pistol with an EV2 barrel that is dead accurate. Probably the best bet since it has been proven in pistol FT. 

 

What airport are you flying into?

Bob is out, I emailed him and he replied.  Lonnie may make it and we might have one other SoCal shooter.  That SoCal shooter is looking to carpool if anyone has room.

 

If you want to see what the current weather is out there (image updated every minute) here is the Mt. Lewis webcam link.

http://www.alertwildfire.org/blmnv/?camera=Axis-Lewis2

The camera points north, Horse Canyon is directly to the west of that camera (Horse Canyon winds up to the top of Mt. Lewis).  If you do the time lapse  and see a lot of little black dots moving around, those are the mormon crickets!!

 

Awards should be here Friday. PortaPotties and wash station being ordered today.

Hi John,

So glad you can make it! 

We'll bring a couple extra 1720Ts with scopes all dialed in for your use if you choose.

You might make a few of the closer targets with iron sights or a red dot, but there usually aren't that many close ones.. We usually set a pretty tough pistol course for this crew... but that's up to you!

 

See ya there all!

Wayne

That's an oxymoron! Get the Steyr out and shoot with the big boys. Shooting WFTF in the canyon is only a small step less crazy than shooting a piston rifle. You can finally shoot the rifle rather than tinker with it ad infinitum 🤣

Not amazing by any means, but at least I'm getting some practice in!

10 shots at 55 yards at 10pm last night. My Steyr will be almost half that size, but what's the fun in that?!

I'll try to keep up with you guys! I'm content competing against myself, the course and the big boys. It's always fun nipping at the heels of you PCP guys!

Maybe I'll wipe it the dust off my Steyr and bring it incase I change my mind.
