Folks,

A couple of manufacturers have approached us about launching a relatively large multi-discipline (Hybrid) showcase match. They want to see both factory guns and customs, and have women and juniors involved.

Here's a format I've come up with. I would like to hear your reactions/suggestions, with the following caveats.

#1. We are just brainstorming--EVERYTHING is open to change. If you don't like what you see, suggest an improvement.

#2. No we are not trying to eliminate IBS/NBRSA/NRA sanctioned comps. This is something new and different, OK, OK?? We're not trying to take anybody's toys away.

#3. Please save the comments that this would not comply with existing sanctioning rules hence one can't earn Hall of Fame or SOY points so the whole thing is stupid. That's not the point of the competition. Likewise, we know 17-22 pound rifles don't normally shoot at 200 yards, but the objective is for each team to bring ONE GUN to the match. And we want to see short-range guys, mid-range guys, and F-Classers all on the same line.

The event would be for two-person teams. On each team, one of the shooters would have to be under 25 and/or a female.
(Hey Jason--you listenin'?)

DAY ONE (Friday) -- Demo Day

Mfg. reps would be present to show rifles, scopes, action and accessories.

National-champ grade shooters would be present to demonstrate:

- Position Rifle
- Tactical Rifle
- Lever-action Cowboy Rifle
- Trap Shotgun
- Rimfire Silhouette Rifle

Competitors who come on Friday would be able to try out the guns on "fun" stages, with rifles and ammo supplied by manufacturers.

DAY TWO (Saturday)
(Each event is one shooter per team; but each team members must shoot at least 2 events per day)

Event One
200-yard BR Shoot for Score Match.
Gun: 22-lb limit Bench gun (i.e. IBS LV/HV, IBS 600yd Light Gun, or F-Class Open) F-Classers can shoot from ground if they prefer. F-TR is OK. Tubb Gun is OK. 6PPC, 30BR is OK. Basically bring your most accurate rifle--but no Rail Guns.
Ammo: Competitor provides

Event Two
300-yard Move and Shoot Match. Engage 15 steel silhouettes or clay pigeons at 300 yards, prone, kneeling and standing. Shooter will be "on the clock".
Gun: Mag-Fed "Practical rifle" supplied by Manufacturers
Ammo: Manufacturer provides factory ammo (Probably .223, maybe 6.5x47)

Event Three
600-yard BR Shoot for Group/Score Match at 600yd BR Paper Target
Gun: 22-lb limit bench gun (i.e. IBS LV/HV, IBS 600yd Light Gun, or F-Class Open) Same guns as Event One.
Ammo: Competitor provides

Event Four: Late Afternoon Fun Stage
Fun Match with tuned lever-action "race guns" shooting steel "on the clock" at 30-100 meters.
Equipment: Guns and Ammo supplied by Manufacturers.

DAY THREE (Sunday)
(Each event is one shooter per team; but each team member must shoot at least 2 events per day)

Event Five
200-yard BR Shoot for GROUP Match.
Gun: 22-lb limit Bench gun (i.e. IBS LV/HV, IBS 600yd Light Gun, or F-Class Open) Same guns as Event One.
Ammo: Competitor provides

Event Six
300-yard Precision bipod Match. Engage 15 one-MOA bulls (paper target) from prone with bipod, and 5 one-MOA reactive targets. Shooter will be "on the clock".
Gun: Mag-Fed "Practical rifle" supplied by Manufacturers
Ammo: Manufacturer provides factory ammo (Probably .223, maybe 6.5x47)

Event Seven
600-yard Shoot from bench at bay of 10 scaled-down steel Silhouettes.
Gun: 22-lb limit Bench gun (i.e. IBS LV/HV, IBS 600yd Light Gun, or F-Class Open) Same guns as Event One.
Scoring: Hit/miss. Smaller targets yield the most points.
Ammo: Competitor provides

Event Eight: Late Afternoon Fun Stage
Fun Match with factory Hunter-Class Silhouette rimfire rifles, shooting steel silhouettes at 20-70 meters.
Equipment: Guns and Ammo supplied by Manufacturers.

Followed by BarBQue and awards.

PRIZES: Top 3 teams win one of the demo rifles (i.e. one rifle per team, 1st place gets the most valuable rifle, naturally.)

Sounds like a WINNER to me !! I even know of a female (under 25) that I'd could convince to shoot this match. However, her dad would have 1st dibs on being teamed with her !!!

My main Q? is about the "provided firearm" ... will it be zeroed (maybe even close) for the designated range ? It would be interesting to be shooting a mouse gun caliber since the only caliber I shoot now is .308.

The stages where guns are provided would be either: a) all at one distance; or b) at sufficiently close range that a single zero would work for all targets, or we would supply the click value from one bank of targets to the next. The guns would be all pre-zeroed, but I think we'd have time for a sighter or two.

I'll be there if I can Location(s) will be tough to pick...

So we would need to bring something that shoots well from 200-600yds and is under 22lbs, right?

Yep, the notion is that each two-person team would bring a very accurate rifle (but not a Railgun) that would shoot at 200 and 600. Could be a 6ppc, could be a 22-lb F-Open. (It would be interesting to see which ends up on top.) The long stage might be 500m instead, depending on the range--I kind of like calling the match the Accuracy 500 ProAM.

Re Pro-Am, Boyd Allen had the suggestion of inviting gun writers/editors and "attaching" one to each two-person team. The writers might shoot a couple extra stages, or do the fun matches each day.

I like the Pro-Am concept.

No position shooting. Awesome.

Do you have to use the same rifle for the 200 and the 600 yard matches?

Great idea, sounds like a lot of fun. Make sure there's some lefty-friendly rifles for the "manufacturer supplied" stages!
