Sniper's Paradise/Precision Applications, LLC is hosting a 1300yd shoot/get together on a range in the Murfreesboro TN area on June 27 - 28.

We will have a 100yd zero target set out for folks that need it. We will have steel reactive targets set every 50 yds from about 300yds out to 1300yds. Possibly, we will have steel set from 100 yds out to 1300yds, if my additional targets come in by then.

The emphasis of the shoot is a friendly get together, promoting the Art and Science of the Long Range Rifle. Myself and several other Instructors will be on hand for any assistance that is needed/wanted. We spend most of our time calling wind and doping for shooters that request it. One of the Instructors on hand will be Vern Harrison of Central Virginia Tactical http://centralvirginiatactical.com/.

I will be working out a special rate with some of the local hotels/motels for folks that need to stay in one.

We will be cooking out on the range for lunch (typical grill type fare; hot dogs/hamburgers or BBQ, potato salad, slaw, chips, drinks etc) or you're welcome to bring your own feed.

You'll need a competent long gun and ammunition, along with any range gear you might need to help you out (rear bags, spotting scope, shooting mat, etc). There will be numerous spotting scopes there, so don't worry if you don't have one. Calibers up to and including .338 Lapua Magnum are welcome, but no steel core or AP ammunition. .338 Lapua may be prohibited from shooting some of the closer range targets, but that ain't what that rig is made for anyways!

If you and a friend are coming and sharing a rifle, that's fine as well.

This is the 4th one that we have done, and they've all been a great success. The shooters range from folks that have never shot past 100yds to current/former military/LE Snipers and competitors. If you don't learn somethiing and pick up some new skills while you're there, you must have your head in a hole!

Cost will be $125 for both days, or $75 for one day.

Cost for LE/Military folks is $100 for both days, or $50 for 1 day.

The Friday, June 26 Pistol Clinic will be an additional $75, or $50 for LE/military personnel.

I am accepting PayPal payments at this time, if you wish to pay via that route. I prefer to have all PayPal payments NLT June 19, 2009. If you plan on using PayPal, my account is cmshoot@bellsouth.net.

I will accept personal checks, MO's and cashier's checks mailed in advance, but I need to receive them NLT June 12, 2009. Please PM me for address info if you are sending payment.

I will not be taking payments at the Rendezvous itself, all attendees need to pre-pay. I will be keeping an attendence roster and issuing wristbands at the Rendezvous. You don't get to shoot if you don't have a wristband.

If you didn't pay because you didn't think you could attend, then your schedule changes and you can attend, contact me and we'll work it out so that you can pay cash at the Rendezvous. All payments made at the Rendezvous will be an extra 10%.

If you pre-pay and then find out you cannot attend, I will refund your money.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via PM, email me at cmshoot@bellsouth.net, or call me at (678) 523-7522.

Semper Fi!

Not interested anyway. I have been excluded cause they limit the caliber to 338. What about us guys with lets say 20mm? It's so hard to find a range to shoot 20mm here in the mid-west. Got to go out west like WY or NV.

Probably because they don't want you to destroy their expensive steel targets.

Not only does it tear up my expensive targets, not many folks wanna lay on the firing line in the vicinity of a 20mm target.

I'll do you a deal though: If you want to come and shoot on Sunday, I'll let you shoot at the end of the day. Shoot any of my targets that you want, and then pay for 'em. It'll save me from tearing 'em down and hauling 'em back home!

I'm about 9 hours away from the shoot, but I'm seriously thinking about it. Sounds like an awesome setup, I'd really like to go.

Was having a wee bit of fun. Actually it is a 50 BMG and ball ammo, even AP with the soft core will not damage a good quality steel target at 600 yrds. I did say soft steel core. But hey I would not want to take a chance on that. Would load up with AMax bullets.

Now for the side blast from the brake surely could get those laying next to me upset. That would take someone recently combat toughened to be able to resist flinching.

I was just baiting a few of my friends here to see if any of them would respond. That would be something else to shoot though.

Not a problem. I've told some folks they could bring their .50's along, but that firing of them would be limited.

Headed up to the range on Wednesday. While I'm there I'll be finalizing some "deals" with local hotels.

Also, I might be able to widen the firing line a considerable amount. As of right now, I'm still limiting to 40 shooters (due to width of current firing line), and it's filling up fast. Don't wait until the last minute and we ain't got the room for you.
