Any PRS shooters here?

I've only shot two matches so far, but if you've done a few, i might have a few questions for you....

think it's a serious hike for you, but peacemaker above winchester and below hagerstown has a belly match (long range challenge) most months and also a day most months where you can have fun on their frontier range that goes out to 1200yds. they're having a precision rifle match there next weekend (18th & 19th). good chance to some really good shooters (myself not included...). and if you have some free time, think they still need RO's who shoot thur and fri and then run stages sat & sun (hotel included if needed).

just like most shooting sports, you can also dry fire. use your deck rail (top and bottom), garbage can, chair seat and backrest, car hood, roof and trunk, etc to make shooting positions as stable as you can.

check out geissele gas gun series. having a match this sunday in gap, pa. they go back and forth between two clubs/ranges. bolt guns are allowed but of course a little slower.

Peacemaker can kiss my ass.....I actually did have a membership there that I let expire in June....a month after I joined last year, i sent them a message basically saying I had issues come up at home and needed to cancel my membership and if they could atleast refund part of my fees, they said no, but they would take me off the member list.....

But yea, it was a 2hr drive for me anyway......i do know guys that shoot matches there, they are pretty good shots...

I've been to Peacemaker once for a Lapua Rimfire match and it was a TON of fun. I want to try a PRS match pretty badly lol.

Smackin steel at 300yrds (consistently) with a .22lr is invigorating!

Are these monthly “belly matches” and 1,200 yard fun days open to the public (non-members)?
