• Designated Marksman Challenge – Spring 2016

    May 3, 2016

    Designated Marksman Challenge!

    Despite pouring rain more than a dozen hardcore souls hit the Colfax range last Saturday. Shooters were tested by a variety of non-traditional shots (and wet weather).

    All in all, it was a great event. The Iowa Firearms Coalition will be sponsoring another Designated Marksman Challenge on October 8th

    Details:

    Shooters will be broken up into groups and cycled through each stage.
    Shooters will get into position and make ready
    A horn will sound and shooters will have 2 minutes to locate and shoot each target for the stage
    Targets will be marked with a Color and number
    Hit or miss, scoring
    Horn will sound at 2 minutes
    Shooter will empty and show clear

    We will rotate through shooters and stages until everyone is done.

    All 3 rifle stages and the pistol stage will be hot at the same time.

    We’re shooting mostly 5″ circles, so the accuracy challenge isn’t too high. But your positions will be unfamiliar to most and your working against a clock.

    Dates are April 30th and October 8th
    Match starts at 9AM at the colfax Range
    946 W 120th St S, Colfax, IA 50054

    2016 Designated Marksman Challenge
    April 30th and October 8th
    Colfax Range
    9AM start
    $15 entry fee

    We’re shooting mostly 5″ circles, so the accuracy challenge isn’t too high. But your positions will be unfamiliar to most and your working against a clock.

    We’re aiming for a safe, fun match and nothing more. If you’re a competitor on a national scale, you’re going to laugh your way to first place… but if your shooting is mostly limited to bench work, this will be a fun challenging match.

    Dates are April 30th and October 8th.

    Please include the number of shooters and spectators you plan to bring to the event.
