Your first BPCR Match

Post by Brent » Mon Jan 04, 2016 7:43 pm

The 2016 Missouri BPCR regional, for both iron sights and scoped rifles will take place June 4-5, 2016 at the Bench Rest Rifle Club of St. Louis, located just north of I-70, 60 miles west of The Gateway Arch in Wright City, MO -

This was the first "legal" silhouette match I ever shot, and I can't think of a better place to start. The targets are easy to see and the breezes are pretty reasonable though occasionally tricky. Pat O'Malley does about the finest job of calling the line of any match I've been to. There are really excellent shooters come from Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Wisconsin and probably several other states I have forgotten. At least two past national champs are there every year.

there is camping space at the range (I don't think there are hookups but could be wrong). Or, you can bring a cot and sleep in the club house for nothing. The clubhouse is full airconditioned, with cable tv, showers, and a huge full kitchen. Bring a .22 to plink with on Friday afternoon or Saturday after the match.

You can find an entry form at this thread on ( ... 34a#p82235) or you can email or call Pat directly.

This range has some of the best target visibility you will find anywhere. The black targets against white limestone really jump out at you. And every year the range gets better and better. So, we look forward to seeing you in June. Good shooting!
