Will I need a sling for my rifle?

For 2020 we had one stage that required a sling. We may use them in the next match as well, so bring one if you have it. We will provide “loaner” slings if you need one.

Will you be squadding and can I shoot through?

We run a very carefully planned match with squad sizes that work with our match schedule. You are expected to stick with your squad, which allows for everyone to shoot. Please be on time, ready to shoot and help re-set to make things go smoothly.

What type of shotgun ammunition should I bring?

As per rule 3.3, Shotgun ammunition shall be 20 gauge or larger, unless otherwise stipulated under equipment division rules.

And rule 3.3.1 birdshot must be no larger than #6 birdshot and made from lead or bismuth only.

I am not a competitor, can I watch?

Absolutely! Bring eye and ear protection and watch at your leisure, as long as you stay behind the stages. Remember to visit our Vendor Area as well – new guns and gear galore, with special offers for all!

Do we have to chronograph?

We randomly chrono Heavy Metal Division Competitors, other divisions do not have minimum power factor requirements and will not need to chrono.
