    Thanks to Mike & Joe for developing this really fun organization combining 22LR and pellet, Without them this new class of benchrest would not have happened.

    Big thanks goes to Joe & Mattie as well as Ardey Vad, for the most critical part – scoring. 

    Next year will even be better

    Want to say thank you to all that competed, and congrats to the winners in their classes and overall combined. Had a great time, plus nice seeing old faces and meeting new ones.

    God willing we can do it again next year.

    My observations, I might have more to say as I break down the data a bit more

    Pellet Class: As expected the 1st day winds made it tuff for everyone. We all improved on Sunday with steady but strong wind. This class shows a good 22 pellet rifle is competitive at 50 yards. 25m is not longer a limit for precision target scores.

    Sportsman: Those that say a pellet gun cannot complete with a factory 22LR should think different. Two air guns in the top 5 for both days.

    Pro: The real significance of this weekend is Mike Niksch and his brand new Thomas Slug air rifle outshot several unlimited 22LRs in PRO class. This should be a paradigm shift for most. That has never been done in competition. I'll add it was done at NRA Center monitored by a NRA Range Officer.

    Hey Dan, Thank you for the event compliment. You are a high quality human.
    Joe has been running shows like this for years. Mike has too. Ardey & I have helped along the way so we are handy. We were short a head this time. Mattie learned the hard way at the 2019 USARB Nationals at Whittington. 
    Thanks for compliment. Sometimes the years of practice turns into luck! HA! I stole your flags while sitting next to you when the wind was from the right. I wish I had some on my windy-left to steal.

    You did good Dan, keep at it. 

    You and Ardey, as well as your unlimited 22LRs, were good company.

    Lou, I agree with your observations on the sportsman class.  If you have your act together you can certainly be competitive using a pellet rifle against the factory Rimfire guns.  So far nobody has shot well in sportsman using a factory air rifle and slugs. That’s a bummer…but hopefully they can get something figured out and put together a competitive system in the future.
