    Spring Black Rifle Extravaganza: NonRestricted Fun Shoot

    All right, I've been tossing the idea around with a few people in a few places, so this will be the unified spot for details. I promise I'll try to keep this top thread updated as we make decisions and get events and shooters lined up.

    First Q&A: What's this about?

    There's a lot of us in the western 3 (BC,AB,SK) that have some pretty fun non-restricted black guns. Its cool to be able to take them out and hike and shoot and all manner of fun.

    Why not set a weekend aside to do that together?

    Right now, the way my mind is running I'm picturing 2 shoots as the summer warms up:

    Prairie Day: Somewhere along the SK-AB border, hopefully with a range in the 100-300 yard space. Maybe a campsite and a river?

    Mountain Day: Somewhere in the crown land of western alberta or eastern BC. Something akin to a sniper's challenge.

    What do we think? Who's in? Who'd be in if we had prizes? Who'd be in if we had other specialness?

    I post this picture all the time: but this is the kind of space I have in mind. Then put some good targets downrange and open up!

    The only specialness I need are:

    - guns
    - campfire
    - bacon
    - coffee
    - good folks

    I am in, and I have the area for the sniper challenge. Hopefully you find a space down south with some RV parking.

    I may just do towel service during the sniper component, on account of being a shitty shot.

    Don't worry - you'll have me to keep you company.

    If we're able to keep it on the SK side, I can bring some fun toys to play with...

    Think less "1000 yard shots" and more: "get to this place on the map and shoot these three targets"

    Maybe prairie is camp/rv/bbq, and mountains is hang out, hike up, shoot, hike back, victory beers?

    So instead of hiking 700 yards then shooting the targets can I just shoot them from the 1000 yard line and not worry about the hiking?

    This is going in the right direction to be a lot of fun. You might be onto something with the hiking in and shooting from an improvised position.
