Tell us more of what the conditions were like. Sunny, overcast, any wind, temps? Heck, maybe even the elevation where the range is.

Pics might be nice too.

I'd rather hear from the OP or someone who was there who can give details thanks.

Does that range generally have calm conditions?

Interestingly, I recently visited a small club here in Michigan (Mecosta R & G) that has a nice little BR range - about 6 or so concrete benches, covered, and range seemed pretty well sheltered from winds.

We've went up and shot the Tacoma range many, many times. It's about 1200 miles from our home and definately worth the trip. I'm sure that when it was organized it was out of town but now it is right in the middle of some 1 million dollar plus homes. It has had over 700 members and a full time caretaker for well over 100 years. I also believe it to be the rail gun capital of the world. That possibly is because of all the aircraft and ship yards in the area and the availability of great machine shops and excess materials. The conditions at the range are always good and often great.The easiest was to confer to others about the range is it is like shooting in a manicured park, surrounded by a rain forest.
My wife and I have shot an awful lot of ranges in the United States and Tacoma is our favorite, hands down.

Gentlemen,

The conditions were cool, overcast most of the time, very light winds to near dead calm at times. Light rain off and on on Saturday, and some sun breaks on Sunday. Dave B. pretty well described the range!

If we read the number correctly we come up with 8 new possible world records and a new range record?

To all who shot at the match awesome shooting and congratulations to all!

Thanks for all the phone calls today telling us about the match and how everyone did!

Thanks again from all of us at Bartlein Barrels!

Frank, Tracy and the whole Crew!

This was a really fun shoot! You had to wonder what was going to happen next! Don Nielsen and Dennis Thornbury… those guys were on fire! We always like having the California gang up for the weekend! (that includes you Lou. :D ) Also some of our local boys did good… Jeff Yost, Tom Dickson, Eric Stanton, Steve Kostanich… all had some big moments in this shoot!
