Shooting position

All shooting will be done from the bench-rest position utilizing the rifle benches at the PRGC shooting range. Forward rests are to be of the field improvised type (i.e., rolled up field jackets, back packs, wooden blocks to replicate a log or rock covered with a hat or jacket, and so on). NO COMMERCIAL RESTS ARE TO BE USED with the exception of an attached bi-pod. The toe of the rifle stock or the butt of a pistol grip cannot contact anything except the shooter’s hands or body.


This is a shooting challenge and can be done at the shooter’s (and witness’s) convenience.

Normal range fees apply.

Shooter must furnish their own aspirin and method of attachment.

There is no limit on how many times you may attempt this shoot nor the number of shots you can shoot. One aspirin at any or all ranges earns you the title of Pill Popper Extraordinaire and entitles you to all the privileges thereof.
