    Yes it does! Thank you! I didn’t know about the YSCA And it isn’t far away at all. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to go out to one of these soon.

    Still kicking just not stirring up much dust. I read sometime ago that the BPCR match at New Braunsville had shutdown?

    Exal, I would get on the match directors e-mail list for any place you might want to shoot. What part of Texas do you live in?

    I just moved to Austin this month from West Texas but I have a place on oak creek so the fort Chadbourne match might be a good one just because I could spend the night there.

    How many people usually show up for the matches? It kind of seems like a dying sport. Also, are there any good resources that I can look at to see what equipment I would need for a match and is it detrimental that I don’t have a spotter?

    Chadborne will have eight to twelve shooters depending on weather etc. Gary will place you with someone to spot for you. You will need your gun with bpcr sights or scope, sight settings, a means of fouling control (blow tube or wet patch) sixty rounds of black powder x cast bullets ammo. I think anything else can be borrowed. If you have sight settings for 220 yards chickens or even 100yds we can likely get you on target. Yep seems like a dying sport till you go to Mexia for the state match or Raton for nationals.

    Ok good deal. I have all that and a little more so I should be good hopefully! I have rough sight settings for 100 and 200 yards and a ballistics chart so hopefully that will be enough.

    After I get settled hopefully I will be out there within the next month or so. I’ll go ahaead and get on the email list as well.

    Just show up at YCSA, watch a match and get acquainted. You will never meet a better group of people. Let it be known you are getting started and need equipment, and you can probably buy everything you need from the other shooters. Do not worry about a spotter, but do take a lawn chair.
    Have mercy.

    Yes, due to lack of attendence, the New Braunsville BPCR matches were discontinued mid 2017.
