Overview: 

For 2017 Peacemaker National Peacemaker has Tom Pohuski Jr & Jeremy Kisner Leading our rifle matches.

Long Range Challenge matches are created by Peacemaker and are designed to simulate an incredible but achievable course of fire shooting from 200 to 1200 yards in field conditions. This competition is more of a friendly match and is designed to allow serous long range shooters to experience the greatest challenge possible with portable rifle in a practical caliber.

The range owned and operated by Peacemaker, is called the “Frontier Range.” Frontier is a training and special competition area and is not open for recreational shooting. For anyone interested in seeing our first match last fall, our friend drew Blitz made a great you tube video that shows is match and range. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ga1JTqUH51E
