2021 International BPCR Showdown
July 15-16, 2021
Whittington Center, Raton, NM

Presented by Heart of Texas Silhouette Association (HOTSA) and Smithmoor Range

Range Location NRA Whittington Center, Raton, NM at the High Power Rifle Silhouette Range.

Rules NRA Black Powder Cartridge Rifle Silhouette rules will govern, with the exception that iron and scope sights compete against each other.

Eligibility Open to anyone interested in BPCR silhouette with a NRA BPCR legal rifle and black powder load.

Firing Schedule Firing will commence at 8 am on Thursday preceded by the shooters meeting at 7:30. This is a two day match, 60 record shots each day, 120 aggregate. Range will be open most of the day on Sunday for practice.

Course of Fire 15 record shots for each animal. 7 minutes will be allowed for unlimited sighters and 5 record shots, followed by 2 sets of 5 minutes for 10 record shots. There will be 30 sec readies.

Fees $100.00 per competitor.

Conditions We are planning to have limited target setters, meaning less setters therefore less cost.

Rifles Allowed All Rifles and equipment will conform to current NRA BPCR rules.

Classification The NRA BPCR classification system will be used in all matches. Individuals who have not been classified will fire as “Unclassified” which will determine their future class.

Jury A Jury of three competitors will be selected to settle rule disputes.

Awards An Overall award will be presented for overall winner regardless of class. Awards will be given for 1st place thru 3rd place in each class- Master, AAA, AA and A. Scope and iron sights will be grouped together. Shoot offs will be used for the aggregate tied placings, all other ties will be settled by reverse animal count.

Friends,
Thank you for your support in providing a BPCR Silhouette Match at the Whittington Center. There has been much discussion and many changes to the NRA National BPCR Championships these past years and we, as a group of shooters, felt it was important to continue the tradition of a prestigious match at the Whittington Center, therefore, we volunteered to donate our time and services to the shooters. Please know that we are doing our very best to provide a fun, quality match for the shooters and your support and understanding is greatly appreciated.
Your entry fees will be used for Whittington range fees, target setters and prizes. We, as the directors and presenting clubs will be volunteering our time and services to the match. If you or someone you know is interested in donating prizes or their time to help with the match, please contact Kenny Tebbe or Cody Smith.
There has been much debate about iron and scope sighting systems competing against each other. There are pros and cons to each sighting method, but in the end, it is hard to claim there is a clear advantage to either one on an average day. Therefore, in an effort to keep the match simple and affordable we are not separating iron from scope. It will be a two day match with the best scores winning, regardless of sighting system used.

The schedule: We are planning on starting the shooters meeting each morning at 7:30 followed by the match.
• Thursday, July 15: 60 shot BPCR Silhouette match, Daily awards following match with Shooter's Discussion
• Friday, July 16: 60 shot BPCR Silhouette match, Daily & aggregate awards following match

There was also much discussion on how to handle squadding, ties, target setters, and various other aspects of the match. The target setters are one of our largest expenses and the simplest way to keep match fees as low as possible was to limit the number of target setters. In order to keep the match from going too late in the day due to longer setting times, we limited the match to three relays. With the longer setting times, there should be plenty of time for breaks during the match and we are hoping for a bit more of a relaxed atmosphere. Shoot-offs will be handled by only having shoot-offs for the aggregate ties. Reverse animal count will be used for any daily ties. We are doing this in order to decrease the amount of time spent on shoot-offs after the match.
We are very excited to have Shiloh Sharps, Montana Vintage Arms and Schuetzen Powder Energetics as our major supporters. Thank you!!
On a final note, we are committed to providing a family atmosphere for our shooters and their families. Anyone, any age is welcome on the range whether shooting or not. We just ask that everyone be respectful of those shooting by keeping conversation back from the firing line and quiet while firing is occurring. Also, one of the greatest pleasures of being involved in BPCR shooting is the camaraderie of such a polite, courteous, and respectful bunch of good people. Please help us to continue this tradition by being mindful of the children and ladies through refraining from rough language, off color jokes, and excessive alcohol use in their presence.
Please remember and follow the Whittington Center rules as we are their guests and shooting on their ranges.

Thank you for your cooperation and we are looking forward to a great match!

Cody,

Suppose someone hasn't decided which rifle to shoot at this point, which may also affect sight or scope used and ammo and folding control questions.

How would one fallout the application?

Clarence,

Just put "not sure yet" on the form. That info will only be used for the equipment list as we not are doing seperate classes or awards for iron and scope sights.

Thanks for the interest, we are all really hoping it will be a fantastic time!
Cody

Congrats to Jen Oliva as the first entry into this years Showdown match!! She is fired up and ready to shoot so y'all better be ready for her. Dick Hennebry came in second, so the list begins. Don't wait as I feel this match will max out quickly.
