2017 Sniper’s Hide Team Challenge

Once again Sniper’s Hide is excited to travel to Colville Washington and to work with Carl Taylor of In Motion Targets to host the Sniper’s Hide Team Challenge.

This is a two man team field course designed for shooter’s of all skill levels. A very laid back type match with unrivaled scenery.

Colville WA Range

Practical Field Course of Fire

Last year we hosted the 2016 Sniper’s Hide Cup at this location and we wanted to change it up for the return.  Changing this match to a team event we allow the newer shooters in our sport to work together without being left on their own.  At the Sniper’s Hide Cup we had an entire Squad of Junior Shooters sponsored by Ashbury Precision Ordnance.  We already have a lot of new shooters signed up as we moving towards this grass roots encouragement.  We want to bring in new shooters leaving the intimidation factor at the door.

The way Carl Taylor hosts a competition you have a much easier flow of competitors without the hurry up and wait tendencies you might find in other types of competition.  His range officers are excellent and really make a difference on the ground when shooting this type of field course.

This is where you want to start your precision rifle journey.  Grab a friend, and show up and shoot !
