PRS style 22 shoot

Postby practice-more » Thu Jul 12, 2018 8:33 am

Planning a little PRS style 22 match at my place on Saturday. Just friends and family but it should be a good time.

Basically, we will be shooting 22's from 50 to 100 yards from an assortment of positions and props. All of the targets are steel gongs that I have made. Some of the ideas come from the NRL22.org website and others are based upon what we have available. I posted the course of fire and scorecard if anyone is interested.

I'll try to remember to get some photos.

This was somewhat of a trial run just to see how things went and overall, I think things went pretty well. There were only 4 shooters, but with a wide range of age and shooting experience. I learned a lot about what works, and a little about what didn't. I'll need to adjust the time limits on a few of the stages and make a few more targets of different sizes.

Target sizes were a 2" triangle at 50 yards, a 3" octagon at 75 yards and a 3" square at 100 yards. We also used clay pigeons and the KYL rack that I've posted before. For a few of the stages we need bigger things to hit. We were all pretty wobbly from the ladder, something I'm sure would get better with more practice, but larger targets (and a little more time) will keep it fun.

I think this is something that we will definitely do again. I've attached one photo, but I will try to put up at PDF of a bunch, hopefully that is faster than uploading them one at a time.

I saved alot on my insurance just by switching into reverse and fleeing the scene of the accident.

What, doesn't everyone have a rubber chicken just laying around??? The last stage was as follow:

Stage 5: Are You Chicken? 

10 Rounds    90 Seconds 
   
Shooter will start standing behind the bench with their hands on their head and 
their rifle on the bench.  Upon the start, the shooter will engage the gong set 
from largest to smallest, accruing more points for each consecutive target (3, 6, 9, 
etc). If a shooter consecutively hits all 7 gongs, they may continue to engage the 
smallest gong and accrue 21 points per additional consecutive hit. However, if a 
shooter misses, they lose all accrued points. A shooter may “bank” their accrued 
points at any time by running to the barrel and shaking the rubber chicken over 
their head.
 After which, they may continue shooting but must start over with the 
largest gong and its associated point value. A shooter may “bank” points as many 
times as they wish. 


One shooter didn't want any blackmail photos so they chose not to bank, missed (twice) and come away from the stage without many points to show for it.

It was FUNNY!

We're at it again with another shoot scheduled for this Saturday. A couple of the stages will be the same, others will be different.

We are expecting a little bigger group this time, maybe 8-12 shooters. I'll post the course of fire and a few photos afterward.

Here is the course of fire from Saturday. A couple of the stages were the same as last time, one was modified from last time, and two were new. We ended up with 7 shooters. It took about 3 hours to complete and then we sat around for pulled pork lunch and bs'n.

The experience of the first shoot definitely helped but even the 3 new shooters did very well. The high score was in the 390's with a middle of the pack cluster of shooters in the lower 300's

The targets were a 3" triangle at 50 (which has the area of about a 1.5" circle with ears), a 3" octagon at 75 and a 4" circle at 100.

Overall, it went pretty well. The times on the stages were long enough to let you finish, but still short enough that you had to be clock conscious.

The stage with the wheelbarrow was interesting because with 7 shooters, I think we saw 7 different ideas/positions. Most worked fairly well, but they all had advantages and disadvantages.

I'll try got get photos posted later.

Looks like you've started something Mitch! Lots of fun I'm sure.

The wheelbarrow shoot looks interesting. Nice that a shooter can somewhat customize the shooting position. That takes away any advantage one might have over another shooter.

Thanks for sharing the pics and the event.

I'm hoping that we've started something. I think it is a great way to get new shooters into recreational shooting and also a way for hunters to hone their field skills. I'm trying to pitch the idea to the local ABC Sportsman's Club to see if they are interested in it. We'll see if it goes anywhere or not.

Speaking of which, I did see that the Holmen Rod and Gun Club is doing an intro to NRL22 on Sunday, Sept. 16th. I'm guessing that they are going to try running the September course of fire as posted by NRL22.org. I doubt I will go, but for those more centrally located in the state, it might be a good option.

I hope I'm allowed to post a link to their calendar: https://www.holmenrodandgunclub.com/rod-and-gun-events/
