EVENT DETAILS

GA Precision and Bushnell Tactical proudly announce the 2021 “GAP Grind/Bushnell PRO/AM”. The largest and most sought after Precision Rifle Match in the world! In association with The Precision Rifle Series, this year’s match format will again be a Professional/Amateur (PRO/AM) Individual and Team Match to promote sportsmanship and welcome new shooters to the competition scene. Top competitors, new competitors and everyone in between from around the country are invited to attend. The match will be hosted by K&M Precision Rifle Training at the K&M Shooting Complex in Finger, TN.

The competition will be a high tempo match with minimal “down time” between stages. Competitors can expect 20+ stages throughout the weekend. The course of fire will test and train disciplines from across law enforcement, military and practical marksman spectrums. Competitors can expect engagements at an assortment of steel, reactive, paper and automated moving targets to 1200yds. Targets size will vary in difficulty based on the shooters position, distance and time allotted. Most stages will include “stressors”, either time and/or movement. All scoring will be transparent, balanced and fall within strict guidelines in order to reward the most consistent shooters/teams. The competition will require 200 rounds to complete the course of fire and is caliber restricted to 300 WinMag and below. The course of fire will be made public at the start of the competition on Friday at 3:00 pm.

Competitors will compete as individuals and as a team; scores will be maintained for both. Trophies will be awarded to the top 5 teams, top 5 professionals and to the top 5 amateurs. Each team member will shoot a similar course of fire with slight modifications for the Amateurs. Professionals will shoot first and unassisted. The Amateur with shoot each stage with the Professional’s assistance. Scores for both days will count toward team standings and individuals standings. This will allows Precision Rifle Series shooters the ability to earn 2 day PRO Series points for this match. Amateurs will not acquire PRS PRO Series points, but may earn PRS Regional Series points. Utilizing this format we are able to keep the welcoming PRO/AM mentorship atmosphere and allow the Precision Rifle Series competitors to gain individual PRS points.

Guidelines
Consider yourself a Professional Shooter if any of these things apply to you:

1. If your average 2 day match score(s) exceed 50 PRS points (do not include previous GAP Grind scores as an amateur in this average).
2. If your average one day club score(s) exceed 75 PRS points.
3. If you have a Jersey, Sponsors, seasoned shooter in another discipline, etc. You are a Pro. (Get with us for exceptions – Jr under 18 years old, Senior Shooters, etc)

Please use your most recent three match scores to calculate your averages.

The intent of this unique match is to help a NEW OR STRUGGLING SHOOTER. Please send the match directors (George Gardner: A10xrifle@aol.com or Shannon Kay: Shannon@KMPrecisionRifleTraining.com) an email if you are unsure which level to compete in. MDs reserve the right and will “class up” shooters across the PRO/AM categories based on match performance post sign up, during the match and as information becomes available. Please don’t be “that guy” and stay in contact with us as you improve through out the year. Help us maintain the integrity of and the “Spirit of the Grind” that all have come to enjoy.

Tune Up
Competitors are invited to join us on Friday the day before the match for the Tune-up.

All props and other K&M infrastructure on those ranges will be available for those shooters that want some additional training time at our world class complex. No shooter or team will be allowed to practice or have knowledge of any stage from the match. All competitors must sign in before shooting and be issued a wrist band.
