    Facebook is deleting our posts about shooting activities. In other words, we are being censored by Big Brother. It is becoming a complete waste of my time to bother posting there. I just received a notice that I am not allowed to post for 30 days. What a joke! I have better things to do. Frank.

    Please shoot safely.

    History of Chris Kyle, The Legend

    Chris Kyle was arguably one of the United States military’s deadliest snipers in Iraq with a large number of confirmed and unconfirmed kills. The Pentagon officially confirmed more than 150 kills. The Navy credits him with more confirmed kills than any other American serviceman in history. Kyle was often asked about his weapons. While in training, he used four different rifles in order to know which weapon was the most useful in the given situation. In the field, he used the following, and these will all be permitted in the match:

    • Semi-automatic 7.62 NATO Mk 11 sniper rifle (AR-10 or similar)

    • 5.56 NATO Mk 12 Designated Marksman Rifle modified with the lower receiver of an M4A1 to get a collapsible stock and allow full-auto fire (AR-15 or similar)

    • Remington 700/300, Later type classified as a MK13 Mod 1, .300 Winchester Magnum sniper rifle with McMillan stock and customized barrel, which was later replaced with an Accuracy International .300 Winchester Magnum or similar rifle up to .300 Winchester Magnum.

    • FN SCAR 16 or 17 or similar.

    • Springfield M1A in any configuration.

    Course of Fire: Competitors will be firing a custom 10-Shot Course of fire. Relays will be fired concurrently. No alibis or refires will be given. Firing will start at 50 yards standing, move to 75 yards kneeling, then 100 yards kneeling, then 200 yards prone. Bipods are strongly recommended.

    • Five Sighters fired in a time of 3 minutes at 100 yards (any position)

    • 50-yard shots will be made on 4” steel plates (2 plates) standing.

    • 75-yard shots will be made on 4” steel plates (1 plate) kneeling.

    • 100-yard shots will be made on 8” steel plates (2 plates) kneeling.

    • 200-yard shots will be made on 8” steel plates (5 plates) prone.

    This course of fire will be one shot per target for a perfect score. There are 10 targets, so 10 shots is perfect. The competitors will start at the 50-yard line standing to engage 2 steel plates. Competitors will move to the 75-yard line and engage 1 steel plate from the kneeling or sitting position, then to the 100-yard line where they will engage 2 steel plates from the kneeling or sitting position. Finally, competitors will engage 5 steel plates from the prone position at the 200-yard line. Sandbags can be set up prior to starting the relay. Bipods MUST be folded until competitor reaches the 200-yard line. Competitors will be timed from start to finish and may not advance to the next position/distance until all the targets are knocked down. There will be a timekeeper and a round-counter for each competitor. Competitors may load their magazines to maximum capacity. More than one magazine and stripper clips for bolt-action rifles with internal magazines are strongly recommended, but not required.

    Scoring: There will be a total of 10 steel plates at various distances described above. A perfect score will be one shot per plate for a total of 10 shots. Plates must be knocked down to count. The timekeeper will keep accurate time as that will be the tie-breaker. No one will move from one position to the next until all the steel plates at that position are down. A perfect 10 will win the match provided it’s done in the shortest amount of time.

    Accessibility Accommodations: For shooters that are unable to go to a kneeling or prone position, a chair will be provided.
