May 6, 2023 (past event)
The 2023 Blackfly Blitz Shoot will take place Saturday, May 6th from 9am to 4pm, with a rain date of Sunday the 7th, at PRFGCA, 1597 Tibbettstown Rd., Columbia, Maine.
Get ready for some swattin’ and shootin’! Since this isn’t Frozen Mosin, we’ll be doing things a bit differently in terms of scoring the 100 yard match. 15 round course of fire remains the same, but basically we will break scoring down into three categories:
1.)Vintage rifles, which will include ANY iron sight rifle in service or commercially available WW2 or earlier, so pre-1945. This includes Garands, Mosins, Mausers, hunting rifles, etc.
2.) Modern iron sight rifles will include ARs, HKs, AKs, FN-FAL, M1A, post-war sporting, etc.
3.)Optics, ANY rifle with optics, whether it be a red dot or scope.
Remember, this match is not limited to service rifles, so bring your favorite gal (or guy) to the dance and show us what you can do.
Other matches remain the same, 200 yard gong 50/50 match, speed shoot, and yes, Joe Bragg will be there with his novelty matches! Step right up, put your money down, and shoot for fortune and fame!
Saturday, May 6, PRF&GCA range, 1597 Tibbettstown Rd., Columbia. Gate opens at 09:00 for registration, safety briefing at 09:45, Matches begin at 10:00. $10.00 entry fee gets you one spot on the 100 yard match and lunch, $5.00 for lunch only.
Contestants may shoot in more than one class in the 100 yard matches, but may only shoot once per class. As always, our event specific t-shirts will be on sale (still only $15.00!) this year with more great Rick Henion artwork featuring our buddy Boris the Blackfly paying a visit to a contestant on the line as shown above. Play your cards right and you can walk away fed, clothed, and with more money in your pocket than you had when you showed up. You can’t afford to stay home!
PLEASE LEAVE ALL FIREARMS IN YOUR VEHICLE UNTIL AFTER THE SAFETY BRIEFING!
