Honeywell Sportsman Club
Varmint Rifle Fun Shoot

Saturday Morning, March 2
Out in the desert. See directions and map below.

All targets will be reactive, and at unknown distances, simulating a real varmint shoot.
We will take one shot each, and score every shot.
No FMJ or tracer ammo is allowed, and no caliber above 7mm Mag!

Bring your most-accurate centerfire rifle(s), at least fifty (50) rounds of ammunition, eye and ear protection, a chair, and your own refreshments. Shade is your option. Binoculars are a ‘must bring’ as well. Be there early enough to have your setup done and begin firing at 8:00 AM. The event will end no later than 11:00 AM.

Since the location is in the desert, you need to also bring your own bench, or bi-pod, or at least cross-sticks. There may be a few extra benches or tables, but the supply is limited. Sharing a shooting bench has worked well in real varmint environments, and we may do it for this event. It allows the guns to cool a little.

Entry Fee is $1.00 Per Person, Juniors - Free

No prizes awarded,
Bring your own refreshments.

Directions: Go north on I-17 to the Table Mesa exit (exit 236). Cross back over the freeway heading west. Just past the frontage road which heads north is a minor road with a wire gate across it. Go through the wire gate and the road will loop around heading south. Follow the road south for about ¾ mile to where it meets the pipeline swath (GPS coordinates N33º 57.472’ W112º 08.351’). Then continue west on the jeep road for 1.6 more miles to a large open area (GPS coordinates N33° 57.098' W112° 9.733'). A high clearance vehicle is needed.
