The High Power Rifle discipline will be once again holding some “Sniper” all prone matches and also adding some small bore (22 caliber rim fire) matches in 2017.
We will have a sniper and mini palma practice immediately following the high power match Sunday Feb 26th. Arrive at the high power range about 11 am. Leave your firearms in your vehicle until we go through our safety meeting and sign in. We will sign in at the high power range. Range fee is $5 for shooters that fired the high power match and $10 for everyone else. This pays for range fees and target costs. Bring at least 50 rds of ammo or more if you have it. We will practice for a few hours and you can shoot as much as time permits. This will give you a chance to see what we will be doing, get familiar with match procedures and get good zeros. We have a few mats and spotting scopes but if you have a piece of carpet, blanket or anything to lay on bring it. If your rifle is not equipped with a scope that will allow you to see bullet holes at 100 yards bring a spotting scope if you have one since we only have 3 or 4. We will spot for you if need be. Email me if you will participate so I can prepare enough targets.
Sniper matches will be at 100 yards, all prone or whatever position chosen using slings, bipods, rests, a log, dead horse, etc. or a combination. Please do not use a real dead horse. That was a fun example to make the point that any support that may be available for a sniper is OK. Scoped rifles will be needed since some of the targets are reduced to resemble a 1600 yard shot at a bad “object”. The targets will have + points for good hits and – score points for shooting the good “object”. Example below.
The February gunfight consisted of nine gunslingers. A lot of cheer and sharing of laughs and friendships. A great deal of improvement is being shown by our newer gunfighters. The spread between times and hit ratios is getting tighter and tighter. The closer the time-spread, the better the gunfights get, and we are getting into some VERY tight gun battles. Severel rounds were decided with shot spreads of under .005th of a second, and two of those were .001th. One round was a dead even tie in the low fives.

Friends from across the state make the trek west to the WAC to share their love for fast draw with the Flatlanders Shootist Society. Slim Jim Garrett and his lovely wife Ruby Garrett arrived in Saint Petersburg on Saturday to share some good social times and some mighty fine gunfighting with the members of the Flatlanders.
2016 was a great year at the WAC, and 86 shooters ended it with a bang at the Last Chance USPSA Limited Match. 7 stages were put together in the back bays with names like Going Out With a BOOM and Fight Till the Last Gasp. Stage 1 was particularly interesting as the start position was holding a shot gun with the choice to shoot a popper or barrel it. The person who was closest to 50% of the stage high score without going over won the shot gun.
With many people having January 2nd off, the Wyoming Antelope Club will host a special Monday Public line opening from 9am – 1pm. This day will be open to the public and members. Range officers, if you have time, sign up using the regular online scheduler. We have room for four Range Officers
The WAC public line will be open to everyone from 9am to 1pm on Monday 12/26 for everyone to tryout their new toys.
The General Membership meeting has been cancelled for December 28th and the BOD meeting for January 4th has been cancelled.
