The Gun Run

The first race of the year for The Gun Run will be April 4th in Ellerbe, NC. It will be a 5k center fire biathlon. Check out www.thegunrun.us for more info and tickets. I have more planned for the year as well. Always great to see FAL files members running and gunning!

Second race will be June 13th at the Clinton House Plantation in SC.

Count me in for the match and RO if needed. I have that weekend reserved.

In to RO! How many FALers are attending, and what's the most difficult rifle shot? I may just being the old iron sighted girl out of retirement for this one.

I'm anticipating shoulder surgery and several months recovery, so I'm 95% sure I'm not going to make it. I was looking forward to to more R-n-G's this year but not in the cards it doesn't look like.

With luck I'll be rehabilitated in time for RGBC in August and try that again.

Glad you two will be coming, sorry about the surgery Tak. I haven't finalized my stages yet but the furthest shot should be about 250yds. A guy with a G3 and irons passed it last time.

As long as I can see the targets they are FAL-worthy. Anybody else want toun a FAL this time?

I am just following a trend I started last year, losing weight. That includes the carried load. My knees just don't work like they did.

I carried a SCAR 17 for my first one. Heavy rifles during long distance treks are something you young folks can do. As much as I like my FAL (L1A1), my AR Mk12 clone is lighter and 1 MOA more accurate. That and 5 mags of 5.56 is a bunch more ammo. I even got a new, lighter pistol to use this year. It is 14 ounces lighter that the CZ 75 I ran last year.

Eeben, as long as you give us 30 more seconds on each stage, I might be able to place respectively.

Looks like we will have a FAL divison this go around. Possibly 7 FAL shooters! Good tune up for the FAL shoot in Georgia.

Bonus points for a suppressed FAL? We could have at least two - but they're pretty ridiculously long though.





















That's what she said.
