The Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club introduces a brand new shooting discipline for 2013 combining Metallic Silhouette and 1000 yard bench
rest into one new exciting game. As in Silhouette, the shooter will be presented steel targets in banks of five at four distances that must
be knocked over to be scored as a hit. Shooters will be assigned a concrete bench and target bay for use in placing their equipment and
rifles to engage the target(s). As in silhouette, a match will consist of 40 shots fired for record, 10 shots at each distance and different
steel animal targets. The match winner will be the competitor who knocks over the greatest number of targets of the combined distances (best of 40).
First match will be held on the following Sundays, 24 March 2013, second match 14 April 2013 and last match 19 May 2013.
Registration is promptly at 0730 with first shots fired at 0745.
