    What steps are recommended for a beginner wanting to sign up for the benchrest competition in Arizona for instance things like who to call to sign up what kinds of questions do they ask how much does it cost do they allow non-participants to observe do you have to start out at a certain caliber are there other benchrest competitions that maybe you should start with first these are just some of the questions I think beginners would ask I’m not just asking this information for me but for all people who are looking to get into the sport and Advance The world Airgun world

    Here’s a link to the Yellow forum benchrest page- http://www.network54.com/Forum/673067 At the top of the page is a list clubs, hopefully there’s one fairly close to you. Most clubs have events once a month or so. In the meantime build yourself a bench, set up a range, and start shooting.
    Good luck!

    As far as I know there is only one club in AZ that shots BR regularly http://www.phoenixairgun.net

    We have a match scheduled for tomorrow morning, you are welcome to come out. You are welcome to shot or just watch or watch and talk. If you want to shot and you are a member of the Rio Salado Gun Club fees are $10 per event (we have two events tomorrow a 50y and 75y) or $15 per event if you aren’t a member. No fees to come out and watch. Assuming we don’t get rained out, most shooters will be there by 8am, getting setup, practicing, BS’ing, etc. 

    Our BR events are 25m, 50y, 75y and 100m. The 25m and 50y events are USARB sanctioned events, the 75y and 100m are our own format. 

    Our website has a ton of information and will answer most (all?) of your questions. But briefly, the short distance events are limited to 0.177 to 0.22 and the long events are intended for 0.25 to 0.35 but you are welcome to shot smaller.

    Feel free to post questions or PM. Several of our members are active on this forum.
