PRS Pro Tips 2017 at Peacemaker National
Sat July 21 2017 & Sun July 22 2018
Sponsors, shooter and onsite demo's will be announced soon
Attention Precision Rifle Shooters, do you have an MOA or better rifle and scope combo? Can you shoot groups at 100 yards that hide behind a dime? Are you taking precious time to load single digit SD ammo? Have you ever wanted to compete in a PRS match but don’t think you can because your only shooting experience is from a bench or prone? Have you attended a precision rifle match with positional shooting and felt your performance suffered due to your lack of practice on improvised positions? If you answered yes to any of these questions then we have the training event for you.
Peacemaker National Training Center in conjunction with the Precision Rifles Series is proud to announce the first ever sanctioned PRS Pro Tips weekend at Peacemaker National. We have gathered the top PRS Pro’s for 1 weekend in the mountains of West Virginia. These competitive long range shooting professionals will be on each stage giving tips and techniques on shooting various PRS stages. In addition we have industry sponsors on site to demo their gear on these stages. Ever wanted to know what it’s like to build a stable position on a rooftop simulator with a Wiebad Pump Pillow or successfully shoot a barricade stage with an Armageddon Gear Gamechanger? You will know after this weekend!
The format is simple and designed to allow shooter to shoot stages multiple times and with various stipulations. You may shoot stage 1 from VTAC barricade at 1 target from 4 different positions or multiple targets from different positions. And you won’t just be shooting off props, we will have prone areas for long range targets to practice hold over’s and wind bracketing techniques.
Shooters with semi-auto or bolt action rifle with magnified optics will engage targets out to 1,000 yards. On both days 4 stages will run on Frontier and 4 will run on the main complex. Squads 1-4 will shoot on Frontier on Saturday and main complex on Sunday. Squads 5-8 will shoot on the main complex on Saturday and the Frontier Range on Sunday. Shooter are free to move to stages in any order they want in their areas. Shooters are also responsible to make to all the stages in their area before the end of each day. Stages and targets will be clearly marked and correspond with stage descriptions.Each stage will have guidelines for shooter position, equipment, time limit, round count and etc. On most cases any additional equipment needed for a stage will be deployed on the clock. This is a moderately physical event involving movement and positional shooting. Shooters will be tested on marksmanship as well as their ability to overcome physical and mental stress.
Shooter must have rifle and ammo capable of 1 MOA or better at 100 yards. Rifle must have a good zero prior to event day. Scope must have exposed turrets with the ability to dial for elevation. Scope must also have reticle in Mil or MOA with graduations to hold over and under. Shooter must have adequate drop chart out to 1,000 yards. If you or your equipment does not meet these requirements please email us to discuss a private training block to get you up to speed before the event. firstname.lastname@example.org

Facility-wide, Critical Match Safety Guidelines:
Please keep your firearm(s) unloaded and cased upon arrival to our ranges and do not handle them at your vehicle. Once you reach a designated safe area, firearms can be uncased and a chamber flag inserted. If you are in need of a chamber flag, they are available at PNTC HQ. For handguns, please keep your magazine out and the slide locked back while leaving it in the safe area. If you plan to keep your handgun holstered during a match, it needs to be free of ammunition and magazine until directed by a PNTC Range Officer. Safe areas are to be kept free of ammunition at all times. Firearms are not to be loaded until the shooter is on the firing line or under the direction of a PNTC Range Officer.
Again, DO NOT handle firearms at your vehicles. Use the “Safe Areas” to case and uncase and/or repair firearms.
No bi-metal, armor piercing, incendiary or tracer rounds allowed. If a magnet sticks to a projectile, it cannot be used.
Failure to abide by these rules will result in a match disqualification.
Please no children under 10 years of age permitted as spectators or shooters! We will have special event days where children under 10 will be permitted. Please do not bring a minor by yourself and shoot in the match. Minors must be under DIRECT SUPERVISON of a parent or legal guardian at ALL TIMES at PNTC. No junior Shooters under age 10.
