Default Bakersfield May Long Range Match

https://practiscore.com/central-vall...match/register

Monthly PRS style match just outside of Bakersfield. Round count should not exceed 90 rounds. Furthest target is right at 1k yards. This will be a great match for new shooters to get exposed to PRS style competition in a friendly, helpful atmosphere. 7am safety brief. Feel free to message with questions.

Is this a field style match or is it mostly on the firing line at an established range? Is there nearby camping? Any website or pictures of the area? Looks like this is the facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/303932470242665/ Assuming that's the range that looks pretty nice.

I'd love to see more information about the range and the layout of the competition. Are obstacles involved, etc.?

This is a field style match involving different firing positions and obstacles. There will be some prone and modified prone positions as well. Take a look at YouTube and search for PRS or NRL matches and you’ll get an idea of what this involves.

Did you do the May 19th is the rainy weather?

I was out of the area on there Last match, but the group of guys that shoot together there, really know what they are doing.

I hope to shoot the next one.

Ya, it rained pretty good for about 20 minutes during the match. It wasn't too bad. We did get some severe weather alerts but it didn't really get bad until after the match was done.

Ah... you should have said hello!

Maybe we can meet at one of Ryan’s Bakersfield matches . I have not seen anything new announced on PS, but I think he has a big one scheduled in October.
