Extreme Benchrest, Mesa, AZ. 104 degrees!!

Extreme Benchrest, Mesa, AZ. 104 degrees!!

Sep. 30th, 10:30 AM

We signed in for the match at Airguns of Arizona after a pleasant drive from Flagstaff. The retail sales part of the building is small, but has a rack of airguns to die for, or at least drain the unused portion of your credit card balance to zero. If you thought they  only sold Daystate and FX, be advised that those two brands only occupied about half of the gun rack.

More interesting was to listen to the sales staff talk to the customers who came in while we were signing in. This is not a scene that would be replicated in Pocatello, Idaho.


Yesterday I wrote that the first two relays of the 75 yard benchrest would be shot one in the morning and one in the afternoon. After reviewing the schedule we picked up this morning, we saw that they will be shot on friday and Saturday, but both will be shot in the afternoon.
I don’t think this is a big deal. Likely it has to do with the number of shooters and matches to be held. Over four days there will be five separate events some of which have up to five relays.
