The Military Rifle Shoot is a Service Rifle style of shoot with an emphasis on fun and personal improvement. Shooting is done at Figure 11 targets from standing, sitting/kneeling, and prone positions at varying distances and supports depending on the category. There is a pistol shoot following the rifle shoot as part of the event.
The Covid-19 situation is constantly evolving and changes will be made accordingly. At this time we will be resuming events but with some procedural modifications. The current plan, subject to change, is:
- We will not be carpooling to score targets and will be walking instead.
- To save time in lieu of this, the number of shooters on the line at one time will be reduced and staggered; in a relay, Rifle 1-3-5-7-9 will shoot, Rifle 2-4-6-8-10 will shoot, Sniper 1-3-5-7-9 will shoot, Sniper 2-4-6-8-10 will shoot, and we will then score that relay.
- Depending on turnout, we may need to limit the number of categories a person can enter if it looks like we'll be running long.
