May 2022 Match Information

Welcome back to our monthly M*Carbo Sharpshooter’s Series Match. We had a good turnout last month, thanks to all participants. “A” Division is our most popular division now and we even saw some action in “B” Division. With warmer weather for most and stabilizing ammo prices, I’m looking forward to a good summer and fall. I was pleased to award the iron sight bonus in the rifle divisions.

We’ll continue to shoot five (5) rounds for score. You’re encouraged to submit your first target.

Iron sights continue to earn bonus points. Iron sights are any fixed or adjustable two-piece sighting systems such as peep, buckhorn or ghost ring utilizing a front and rear sight
