    Battle Road Biathlon Run 'n Gun @ Bedford Contingent June 8 and October 26

    Battle Road Biathlon Run 'n Gun @ Bedford Contingent June 8 and October 26
    For those of you interested in the "Run 'n Gun" type events, this is an entry-level event designed to remove all barriers to entry into the sport, AND learn some revolutionary war history and what sets us apart from every other country on the planet. Basic requirements are a reliable .22 rimfire rifle (optics or irons), 15 rounds of ammo, and closed-toed running shoes or hiking boots. Add eye and ear pro, some water and snacks, and you are good to go. The physical requirements are minimal; the ability to walk at least 3/4 mile at a time over uneven, unpaved terrain. You are welcome to run, but it is not required. Sight in that rifle at 35 meters and practice on some full-size paper targets beforehand. The cost is comparable to a common 5K race, but you get the added challenge of shooting Revere's Riders proprietary reactive targets!

    Practice targets can be downloaded here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l64e20j5a4...arget.pdf?dl=0

    Note that as of a few minutes ago, I have revised the practice target sheet by adding a line of known size so you can check if your printed targets are the proper size. Looking forward to meeting you all!

    You take your training very seriously! Was the KY to simulate being covered in blood? Was it harder to safely manipulate the firearm being covered in lube? I have questions!


    Putting firearms' contribution back in our history makes a more complete telling. Teaching marksmanship in that context deepens the understanding. Revere's Riders, because history involved guns!
