Sounds like a blast!
Will their be another Bommershoot this fall or next spring?
When Mark @ Precision Firearms finishes my wife's Grendel we will both have one and we could use some professional help for long range tactical shooting.
We live in the Boise area so the drive should not be a problem.
AR10T, Boomershoot is almost always the last weekend of April or first weekend of May, depending on how the calendar falls. Next year it is scheduled for April 26-28, with a Precision Rifle Clinic the first 2 of those days.
You can register for the Precision Rifle Clinic now at http://boomershoot.org/ but I'm not sure if they are taking registrations for Sunday Boomershoot yet. Typically that doesn't happen until late August or early September. We make every effort to limit the number of people in the Clinic to 4 shooters per instructor if possible, so registering early guarantees a spot, and helps us arrange to have the proper number of instructors there (otherwise you might get stuck with me!). I know that we already have had people register for both Field Fire (without firing line instruction, although you can sit in on the meetings) and the Clinic with firing line instruction.
There is not another class of this type, with this kind of instruction and level of instruction, for this cost, anywhere west of the Mississippi that I can find (maybe not in the whole country!). Similar classes usually run at least 3-4 times the cost. The instructors are first rate, and real world guys who have LOTs of experience shooting at the National and International levels.
Anette Wachter, who won the Lt. Governors Trophie at the BC Open matches in British Columbia, only the 2nd woman and 1st American woman to do so, was there this year. She has always been an open sight shooter, so using a scope at long range was a new experience for her. She said, "I will drag as many people as I can for next year. Even without the camera crew following me I plan on going back." (She and her team member were being filmed for ESS Eyewear for a promotional video.)
“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
