    New to the group

    Living in Washington State, originally from Ireland. I hope to get down to New Zealand within the next couple of years for some hunting. Primarily involved in PRS type shooting here in the Northwest.

    Welcome Marty. Explain PRS to an old bugger?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    The Okanagan is a lovely area. Spent a wee bit of time at Salmon Arm on Lake Shuswap.

    Just North of Seattle, but in-laws are out in the Northeast part of the State near a place called Kettle Falls.

    Rushy, PRS over here is the Precision Rifle series, basically field shooting from various improvised shooting positions at targets at different distances and each stage has a time limit. Probably the fastest growing Shooting sport in the States.
