Re: Silhouette Rifle Rules Changes - 2018

So, six rifles to shoot a lever gun match? Three for iron sights and three for scopes? Looking like IHMSA...

The whole point of shooting at those giant targets is so they can be shot with iron sights.

Re: bolt failure

First, it's important to not shoot garbage Eley ammo and shoot LAPUA!

Second, that bolt should be able to handle a ruptured case. Anschutz needs to figure that out quick before some Eley shooter gets injured!

Re: Silhouette Rifle Rules Changes - 2018

Don't get me started on air rifle animals.... they are just ridiculous... =)) That is funny! You almost made me spit up my coffee. I regularly shoot groups offhand at half-scale swingers with my "bolt gun" to check sight settings. In hundreds of shots I've never even come close to missing the targe...

Re: Silhouette Rifle Rules Changes - 2018

I believe Troy Lawton from Georgia who won the truck at Winnsboro with a 40/40 was shooting a 10/22. We have lots of people shooting plenty of different action types so to call this a bolt game is wrong. I am very curious to know why smallbore/highpower/air rifle is not acceptable for the few peopl...

Re: Silhouette Rifle Rules Changes - 2018

Dustin, if we wanted to shoot bolt rifles, we would. Some probably do. Personally, not interested. At all. Happy to hear that others like it however. You can put a scope on a lever rifle and shoot it, or on an automatic, or a pump, low-wall, high-wall, whatever. Doesn't have to be a bolt gun. You c...

Re: Silhouette Rifle Rules Changes - 2018

In case anyone is unaware, Highpower Rifle, Highpower Hunting Rifle, Smallbore Rifle, Smallbore Hunting Rifle, Open Air Rifle, Target Air Rifle and Sporter Air Rifle Silhouette all allow scopes. They are all lots of fun and very challenging. Feel free to come shoot!

Re: 2019 Louisiana Indoor Air Rifle Silhouette Regional Match

Another great, and very unique, match. Thanks very much to Danny and Garin and the rest of the bunch for putting this on. The shooters really appreciate it!

Anyone not shooting air rifle silhouette - and/or not attending this match - is really missing out!

2019 Texas Smallbore State Championship - June 1-2, 2019

The folks running the 2019 Texas Smallbore State Championship asked me to post the match program.

The match is in Beaumont and there will be a 60-shot air rifle match on Friday afternoon before the smallbore matches on Saturday and Sunday. It will be a great match.

Question Dustin or anyone else with experience: do the 1/4 in thick targets result in more animals bein hit but not going over, especially for the 10 meter guns?
I guess it's possible with the Rams but very unlikely.

These are what I would get. The 1/4" thickness will make them heavier so they don't fly all over the place and get lost when they're hit.
