I'm proud to announce that Hawke Optics is sponsoring the match! Hawke Optics seem to be one of the best kept secrets in the optics world. A legacy of high quality glass and all the functionality you could ask for defines the various product lines. Remember that custom 10/22 we're giving away? Hawke is sending one of their fantastic Vantage scopes to top it off. And another for the general prize table! You can find them on social media and check out all their products on their website.

I can attest to that. I won one last year at the Carolina RNG. Built a rifle around it and it is probably the best brake I have used. Almost zero recoil and muzzle rise. It will be on the rifle I use at the River Bend RNG Match next weekend. You can see it then.

Sadly I'm not making River Bend. But I've seen them in action at PRS matches. They're crazy good.

So let's talk about stage 1. Y'all know the course of fire. 2 hits pistol, then 5 hits with a randomized rifle. A little more info, you'll have 6 shots to make those 5 hits. If you can't clear the stage with that, you get to pick up one of these randomized melee weapons. I'll have water balloons tied to the target stands, and you must busy the balloons to clear whatever targets you don't get with the rifle. Wanna just go and melee? Do it. Wanna carry your own melee weapon? Go for it. Bonus points if anyone carries a chainsaw. For the record, that's a Louisville Slugger, a KABARtana, and a Trauma Hawk from Zombie Tools

Stage 7 - Awww crap, these guys STILL heal? - Presented by Seekins Precision
Hit all 6 heads of the hydra in a row otherwise they'll just grow back! If you miss, you gotta move so you don't get bit!
On the buzzer, engage the plate rack at 15 yards. You must make a clean run to finish the stage. If you miss any plate, you will run around the barrel roughly 5 yards to your left(keeping your muzzle pointed down range)
while the RO resets the plate rack.
Required pistol hits - 6

New feature! We are offering a "gun handling and safety orientation" course for those who wish to take it on Saturday morning. If you've never did a RnG before, or any competition shooting, then this class maybe something you wanna check out. It'll be an hour to an hour and a half and will cost 10 bucks per shooter. It will be COMPLETELY COLD. No live fire will happen. But you'll go over how to clear your rifle and show it as such to an RO. How to clear your pistol and show it. How to reholster safely. How to move with your weapons without flagging everyone around you. A very basic intro for those who want/need it. Sign up for this will happen on race day at registration. So if you're interested, please bring an extra 10 bucks in cash. Half the money is going to Mission 22. The other half is going to pay the 3 ROs who will act as instructors for their time.
