‘Christmas Saint Nicholas’ Shooting Match
Date: December 23, 2012
Location: Albuquerque Shooting Range Park
50 – 500 Meter / 300 – 1,000 Yard Range
Ranges / Positions at which the Match is to be shot at:
500 Meters: Shooters Discretion
The positions the shooter wishes to shoot at will be left to their discretion which can include the following: prone supported or un-supported, kneeling, sitting or offhand, table or bench rest type shooting shall not be permitted.
For those who want to shoot prone supported, two sand bags stacked up to two or three high and / or a three point front rest can be used upon which the forearm of the firearm can be laid upon. No back rest or bags are allowed to be used to support the buttstock at any firing position. Shooters may use a slip-on type recoil pad on the buttstock or the shoulder for those who are sensitive to recoil.
Targets to be Used:
The target at the 500 meters will be a ‘simulated’ shaped Saint Nicholas with three Ram sized targets acting as his reindeer will be used for tied scores only.
Depending on if Rob is able to get the cable he needs in time for the match, the target could be a ‘moving’ one or stationary, stay tuned for details as we get closer to the match date for information regarding this. The Saint Nicholas target will be painted a solid red with a black belt and white buckle at the waist and will be wearing a hat. The ‘reindeer’ target will be painted a solid black.
Whoever is the first person to knock off his hat will get to keep the hat and must wear it for the rest of the shooting match.
Scoring / Rounds per Course of Fire:
10 rounds will be fired at the target during the course of fire, up to three sighting rounds may be fired but these rounds will not be scored.
A direct hit on the target scored one point, a miss scored a zero.
All scores will be confirmed by the use of a spotter.
Up to eight shooters at time will be firing at the concrete slab at the 500 meter firing line, in which each shooter will be firing one round at a time until all eight shooters finish shooting the 10 rounds off. Once the first set of shooters has completed the set distance, then the next eight shooters will then complete the same course of fire at that distance and so on till the whole course of fire has been completed in its entirety. Bring enough rounds to do the course of fire twice.
Also be prepared to fire once you number is called on the line; we are going to be moving the firing along as fast as possible.
Firearms to be used:
The firearms that can be used in this match must be all unmodified, originally configured service military rifles that were or still are being issued in the world’s standing armies that were issued to the ‘ordinary soldier’.
The sights on the firearms must be as-issued ‘iron sights’ that were standard to the firearms being used which does not include in any aftermarket, target, match adjustable or micrometer sights as these were not issued to the ordinary soldier.
Scoped military ‘Sniper’ rifles that are to be used in this match must be military used, period, as-issued mounts and optics or cloned copies of the original type mounts or optics, once again no aftermarket type mounts or optics are allowed.
Once again it must be stressed … Firearms must be as-issued types to the ordinary soldier that used them … NRA/DCM/CMP National Match, European Shooting Match, micrometer, target type sights do not fall into this category as they were not ordinary issued type sights. If you happen to use firearms with these sights on them you will not be competing in the regular issued class, you will be placed in a separate class. Remember our club mission is the shooting of firearms that the ordinary soldier would have used in combat.
