Shooting position varies by division.

Bench position shoots from front rest or sand bags with rear bags allowed.

NO SIGHTER SHOTS ARE ALLOWED EXCEPT IN THE RIMFIRE TACTICAL DIVISION!



A single firearm may be shot in multiple divisions (or shared by multiple shooters), however, a 15 minute minimum cooling period must be used between strings of fire (target change or shooter change) to help maintain the cold bore shot. Please adhere to this rule!


Pistol divisions are shot standing. You MAY NOT lean or prop yourself against bench or table.
