Hey all! New to the forum but no to shooting. I have been shooting for about 30 years or so. I have been a trainer in the shooting arts for about 23 years or so. Funny that I just now decided to give competitions a try. So I decided to try out USPSA and my first match will be on May 7th if I can get everything in order by then. I'm thinking of trying out the Limited Division with a major power factor in .40, I hope. I also just started reloading as well, so I am trying to learn as much as I can at this point. I have read that this is one of the best sites for competition and reloading information so I am hoping to learn a lot and give back as soon as I am able to. I don't know if it matters but I just picked up a Springfield Armory XD(M) 5.25" Competition in .40 S&W to use in competitions. I haven't shot it yet but I'm sure it will handle nicely. Pleasure to meet everyone. Mat
Announcing the inaugural Bluegrass Shotgun Championship July 30 at the Bluegrass Sportsmens League in Wilmore, Kentucky, just outside Lexington. This one day match will feature 9-10 challenging stages with short and fast bay-type stages and longer open terrain-type stages and everything in between. There are few shotgun-only matches this year and the Bluegrass Shotgun Championship promises to be the largest and perhaps only dedicated shotgun match east of the Mississippi in 2016. The match is limited to 100 shooters and registration is OPEN at Practiscore ($60 match fee). Match staff are working on random draw prize table - updates forthcoming. Divisions will include open, semi-auto and pump. Trophies awarded for Top 3 in each division plus high Kentucky overall for each division. Follow the Bluegrass Shotgun Championship on Facebook for up-to-date info, stage information, lodging and rules.
