This is a very common question from new shooters. Many ask if they can come out and watch a match to get an idea of what to expect and the answer is of course and there is no charge to watch. We always tell them and they agree, once they watch a stage or two, to bring their rifle and gear ready to shoot. The shooters are helpful and the environment is friendly. There are enough shooters in a squad to watch what others are doing, ask questions and then give it a try yourself. Other shooters will help you with technique, wind calls and equipment.
This is what Kevin K. had to say about his first match experience.
“The Newbie – this past weekend was an absolute blast! While I have done a bit of shooting in my life I have never been to a single competition and am new to the long range game. That said I decided to take the plunge and go to my first TX Precision Match. I am happy to say I had an great time learning from a great group of guys! I was hoping to hit at least one target but actually chalked up 20 on a course that isn’t easy.
Every person I spoke with was courteous and really tried to help me with tips and pointers. Dave and Prentice were fantastic and introduced me to some great talent. There wasn’t a single stage that someone didn’t give me some type of tip that improved my shot.
I highly recommend jumping in feet first and joining the March competition. You won’t be disappointed. I am looking forward to my next match and I hope to see you there!“
