Sling use: Military style slings allowed for support in prone and sitting

attached to the rifle when firing the standing stage but may NOT be used
for support in that stage.

Come one, come all.
Bring a rifle, your ammo, hearing AND eye protection, and something to
lay-sit on.... a shooting mat, a piece of old carpet, or a couple of throw
rugs will do fine. If you have one, bring a spotting scope so you can spot
your shots in the slow fire stages...... AND A STAPLER if you have one. If
not, you can share with someone else.
