2017 Cabin Fever Challenge is OPEN
Rule #1: If you can't do it safely don't do it.
Rule #2: Don't nominate someone unless they have the skills and drills to be safe.

UPDATE: Lockhart Tactical will be sponsoring the match by providing some simple prizes. Let's show our sponsor some support by giving him some business!

Class 1 Vintage: VZ-58 (stock), M305, M1A, AG42, VZ-52/57, SKS / M1 Carbine, M1 Garand, SAFN, AK47 (stock), etc
Class 2 Modern: AR15 / TAVOR / Swiss Arms / XCR / FAMAE 542 / T97 / SL8 / TRICKED OUT AK47 / VZ58 / SKS / Other (see below)
Class 3 All Bolt / Lever & Pump Guns

VINTAGE: Rifles as issued to the infantry soldier - No significant modifications are permitted.

MODDED or TRICKED OUT Vintage rifles may have (but not limited to): Any red dot / optical sights, extended mag release, modified stocks, magwell modifications, etc... There is a grey area around tricked out Vintage platforms but essentially any Vintage semi-auto that has been significantly modified beyond what a would have been used by the infantry soldier is modified and 'tricked-out'.

If in doubt about about the eligibility or classification of a particular rifle please send me a PM.
All shots are unsupported, no rests or bi-pods (use of a carrying sling as a hasty sling is OK). Distance to target 100 yards/meters. Target is an 8" circle (free target below)

Course of fire is 20 rounds: 5 rounds standing, 5 rounds kneeling, 5 rounds prone, 5 rounds sitting. Mandatory reload with five round charger/magazine/stripper clip between each position change.

Time is calculated from first shot fired to last shot fired.

Score is 5 points per shot on a 8 inch diameter circle, bullets that cut the perimeter of the circle count as hits, bullets outside the circle are misses.

Hits on 8" X 5
---------------------------- X 100 = Score
Time in Seconds
