  • Sniperís Paradise 2017 Fall Rendezvous, Nov 11-12, Blakely GA

    The Sniper's Paradise/Precision Applications, LLC Fall 2017 Rendezvous will be held on November 11-12 at Arena Training Facility in Blakely, GA.

    Unlike previous years, we will no longer shoot from the front of the field on Saturday. With the new raised firing line (12í tall, 200í long) at the back of field this is no longer necessary. This will give us much better visibility and add approximately 300 yards to the overal distance. It also enables us to have a 100yd zero target on the same range as our long range targets.

    We will have a wide selection of steel targets, out to approximately 2500yds. We will give you the dimensions and distance to each target, if you wish. Targets will be painted and maintained periodically throughout the day to keep them identifiable to the shooters. The minimum distance target will be 100 yards. We will have in excess of 20 targets at various distances. After talking to the range management, numerous targets will be moved to give us a wider array of distances and less targets hiding from us.

    We will also maintain some Unknown Distance targets of known size, for folks that want to practice their ranging techniques.

    I will be setting up a chronograph for folks that want to get accurate data for their rifles.

    You can bring as many rifles as you like. Class III weapons and suppressors are welcome.

    You are free to shoot at any targets you wish throughout both days. This is an excellent opportunity to get that good, long range dope on your equipment. With the shortage of civilian-accessible long distance ranges, this can be difficult to do. There is enough room on the firing line that you will be able to shoot non-stop, all day, if you wish.

    This is a structured shoot, but not exactly a formal class. I and several other Instructors will be on hand to give you as much (or as little!) help as you need.

    Suggested gear list:
    Rifle with ammo (no steel core, AP, incindiery or tracer rounds)
    Shooting mat
    Tent or shelter to shoot under
    Spotting scope
    Chair(s)
    Cleaning equipment and tools
    Cooler with snacks, water and non-alcoholic beverages

    You will be able to drive right up to the firing line, so no need to lug your gear very far.

    I will have all my tools and cleaning equipment on the range. If anyone needs any Armorer's assistance I will be available most times during both days, free of charge. Also, I and several others will be available to assist in spotting and calling wind.

    Cabins that sleep up to 2 folks are available on the premises for $100 per night, payable to me when you pay your entry fees. There is a shortage of lodgings nearby offsite. The nearest large town with a good selection of lodgings is Dothan, AL, about 36 miles away. There are a few small motels just outside the range in nearby Blakely GA, of varying degrees of "niceness", and ranging from $35/night and up.

    The cost for the Rendezvous is $175 for one day, $300 for both. Active duty military/LE/Public safety folks are $150 for one day, $250 for both. I will no longer be giving the discount to former military/LE/Public safety folks.

    I accept checks, money orders, cash and PayPal (PayPal users add 3.5% to the total cost).

    There will be a mandatory safety meeting for all attendees in front of the pro shop at 0800hrs EST Saturday and Sunday.

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at shep@precision-applications.com, or (678) 523-7522. I hope to see y'all this spring.

    All LEO's will receive POST credit for all hours in attendance.

    SEMPER FI!

    It's knowing that when I get up in the morning and my feet hit the floor, the Devil says, "Shit! He's awake!"

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."
