2018 Run `n Gun `n the Sun - Course of Fire
NO steel-core ammo allowed on the course.
1) A map to the range can be found at either of our websites: www.pecosrunandgun.com or www.pecosrifleclub.com. The directions are: Go North on US 285 through Pecos. About one mile after you cross the Railroad tracks, veer right onto FM 1216. Go about 8 miles. Range is on the right. You will see a white trailer house and a rusted tin barn.
2) Be at the range at 730AM Saturday morning, September 15. Run order will be determined that morning. Latecomers run last, if at all.
3) Parking is tight. Pay attention to the guys showing you where to park.
4) Porta-johns will be onsite.
5) Bring shade. There is zero other than what you bring.
6) The course is 5 miles long this year. There will be a river crossing.
7) Maximum time allowed at each stage is 2 minutes.
8) No shooting sticks, bipods and other shooting supports are allowed.
9) Obstacles/terrain on the shooting ranges must be used as cover/concealment and may be used as a shooting support - and touching the obstacle with your little toe, three-gun-game-style, does not count and will result in a DQ on that stage.
10) Targets will be shot from left to right on all stages.
