New poker prizes coming in daily!  Almost to the point that everybody will play for free!  Let me know if you find a better deal and I will go play!  Judge Roy Bean will be playing, he may be old but, he is a dam good poker player.  Just ask everybody he beat at Rabbit Ridge!  Everybody in that game thought the were the best player, Judge proved them all wrong and claimed the money!  Justice Lily Kate then robbed him and gave the money to the scholarship fund.

Ambush At Cavern Cove Southeast Regional 2019
Long Range Rules

 

Categories:

Pistol

100 Yard Pistol Caliber Repeating Rifle Rapid Fire

100 Yard Pistol Caliber Rifle Slow Fire

200 Yard Repeating Rifle

200 Yard Single Shot Rifle

200 Yard Buffalo Rifle

200 Yard Optics Rifle

Tie breakers:

Pistols and repeating rifles rapid fire time is the tiebreaker.

Single shot rifles/slowfire repeating rifles, bonus target hits and if needed shoot off for tie breaker.

Two sighters per gun will be allowed at the time of first firing for record, sighters may not be converted to shots for record. Shooter may request spotter call the sighting shots. If firing in a shoot off blackpowder shooters may fire two fouling shots into the berm or a target designated by the RO.

Firing for record occurs when the shooter states they are ready to do so. Spotters will not call more than hit or miss for record shots (shooter must request the hit/miss calls prior to firing the string). Time permitting you may fire two additional strings for record, doing so negates the previous strings (just like drawing new cards in draw poker).

Guns- any SASS legal gun for the various classes as defined in the Shooters Handbook is allowed. NOTE- the ROC has declared the NEF/H&R and Henry break open single shot rifles with external hammers to be legal. NOTE- 100 yard pistol caliber slow fire/single shot we are allowing any SASS legal repeating rifle to be single loaded and fired as if it were a single shot due to the scarcity of single shot pistol caliber rifles.
Ammo- any SASS legal ammo as defined under Long Range in the Shooters Handbook is allowed. Buffalo Rifles must shoot BP or any SASS approved BP substitute (duplex loads and Blackhorn 209 are illegal per the SHB).
Sights and optics per the SHB.

All SASS safety and gun handling rules are in effect. Due to firing line commonality with stages running other side matches we will be using a flag system. From 12:00 to 1:30 PM the range is cold, there is to be no handling of firearms during this period; this is to allow range officials to go down range to repaint the long range targets.

Guns may be in carts with actions open, racked with actions open (there is very limited rack space) or brought to the line cased and then shown clear when uncased. Guns may only be loaded at the line immediately prior to firing. Guns must be shown clear and actions opened before removing from the line (guns brought to the line cased or holstered must be shown clear then the action closed and recased or reholstered at the table). No gun handling under the shelter while a shooter is on the firing line.

North Alabama Regulators are supplying various height shooting rests and sandbags for the slow fire and single shot categories.

Shooters will be expected to treat this as a normal posse and pitch in to help time, spot and pick brass. This is a Regional match, cowboy attire is required per the SHB.


To keep things moving there will be a sign up sheet for one gun/event to be shot, after you shoot that you may sign up to shoot another.


Courses Of Fire
Pistols-
5 shots.

Pistols may be brought to the line holstered or cased, must be unloaded.

Load at the table.

Targets are from approx. 34 to 42 yards in echelon. Engage targets in a Continuous Sweep from left to right. Do not reengage a missed target, continue the sweep.
Penalties- A two second penalty will be assessed for reengaging a missed target or starting at the wrong end.

Repeating Rifles Rapid Fire- pistol caliber at 100 yards, rifle caliber at 200 (195 actual) yards.

Load at the table adjacent to firing position.

Must be fired unsupported from the standing position.
Start in ready position, gun loaded, hammer down on an empty chamber.

The line to start the timer is “Eat lead!”

Match official starts the timer.

 

Single shot/slowfire rifles, buffalo rifles and optics rifles-
Pistol caliber rifles fire at 100 yards.
Rifle caliber single shot rifles, buffalo rifles and optics rifles fire at the 200 yards.

Rifles fired from the rest and sandbag/s provided by the club.
Fire from left to right, largest to smallest target, one round per target. Point values are from 1-5 as targets decrease in size. Shooter must engage all five targets in order, engaging the wrong target is a miss.

Load from the body or the table.
Match official will inform the shooter if they need to engage the small bonus target for the initial tie breaker. The bonus target to be engaged until missed.
Points and number of hits on the the bonus target determine 1st through 3rd place.
If there is a tie after the bonus targets hits the final tie breaker will be fired shoulder to shoulder, offhand at targets to be determined at the time of the shootoff. Each shooter will fire one round then the next shooter will fire until one misses a target the other has hit.
It is the shooter’s responsibility to report back to the Long Range area between 3:15 and 3:40 PM to determine if they need to participate in a tie breaking shoot off. Shootoff begins at 3:45 PM.

So come off the range from shooting, you are tired and feet need some relief. Well we will have a massage lady at the range to help you out with those tired feet. 

So yes you can get a foot massage at the end of your shooting. What a happy ending.

Is there any Cowboys or Cowgirls planning on shooting the Cowboy Rimfire match on Thursday afternoon that have not signed up? Right now we are short enough shooters needed to run a posse and have the match. If you are planning on it and not signed up please let me know.

Thanks, Barkeep

That's the beauty of the Rimfire match.  No targets to reset or brass to pick up.  It goes pretty quickly and the ammo is cheap.

Long range benches and targets all set up and ready to go. Don't forget for three of the categories you can shoot your main match pistol and rifle so stop on by side match day and give it a try.

The forecast looks like 50/50 for rain Friday and Saturday.  I think the Kajun needs to burn some chicken feet or something to keep the rain away.

 

Ammo is checked, guns are cleaned and lubed.  Ready to go!
