First off, if you’re not familiar with Joe Huffman’s Boomershoot, then shame shame on you. It is by far one of the best conceived and hardest worked on shooting events in the country. For the quote of the day, we have Michael Bane:
Boomershoot is the most interesting precision rifle event in the entire world.
In additional Boomershoot coverage, we have Joe’s recovery time, several pictures from Oleg, a totally awesome video, and finally a great wrap-up post from Laurel discussing the people, the guns, and the event itself.
Boomershoot is an event that is on my “must hit” list eventually – I’m not a rifleman by any stretch of the term; in fact when I met a legit precision rifleman earlier this year it was like he was speaking another language. Sight picture and trigger control I get, but the minute the shooting involves “reading the mirage” or “calculating Coriolis effect” then I’m officially out of my depth. But I also believe that the only way we improve as shooters is to challenge our skills…and Boomershoot would do just that.
Way to go, Joe. Looks like another top notch year from our friends in Idaho!
