First, here’s wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year from your ViMBAR / ViMSAR match directors, Jim, Bill, Steve and myself.
As a Christmas gift to all, the targets this month were a little bit bigger and a little bit closer. But we still didn’t get anyone with a clean match. But almost !
Snipers shot the same course of fire unless otherwise stated.
Prone supported on Stage One, alternating two targets at 300yds.
Stage Two, engage a 400yd. target until hit twice and all remaining rounds on a 200yd. target. Sitting supported.
Sitting unsupported on Stage Three, engaging targets at 300, 200 and 125yds, Nevada Sweep.
From standing position on Stage Four, alternate targets at 200 and 150yds. Snipers engaged targets at 400 and 200yds. from sitting supported position.
The grenade pitch and six pistol rounds started Stage Five. Then from any unsupported position, engage a 100yd. target until hit twice. Then the same with a 160yd. target. All remaining rounds on a 220yd. target, with two points per hit.
Possible high score of 65.
