Airguns of Arizona has announced that this years’s Extreme Benchrest will take place from October 10 – 13, 2019. It’s going to be the best ever, says “Mister AoA”, Robert Buchanan!
The venue will be the Rio Salado Shooting Range in Mesa AZ, the range that has hosted the EBR for several years past.
And yes, EBR 2019 will have the highest Extreme Benchrest prize money ever. The total value of the prizes to be awarded will be over $34,000. Wow!
And there’s more…
The first 120 contestants to register for EBR 2019 will receive a free PhoneSkope riflescope adapter – a $175 value. That represents a $21,000 value above and beyond the highest Extreme Benchrest prize money ever!
As always, there’s a limit to the number of shooters who can participate in this famous annual airgun shooting event. So, if you want a chance of winning your share of this huge prize pot, it’s best to register now. You can sign-up online to attend Extreme Benchrest 2019 at this page.
The format of Extreme Benchrest 2019 will be familiar to many, but has some interesting new twists. Of course, there will be the 100 Yard Extreme Benchrest competition itself. There’s also a 50 yard Benchrest open class and 50 yard Benchrest Spring class.
Then there’s the Speed Silhouette and two Big Bore challenges, too. Plus the American Field Target competition. Oh, and an indoor pistol competition, too. Below, we see Tom Adams competing in American Field Target last year.
As usual, competitors for each course of fire are divided into “Pro” and “Sportsmans” classes. This gives the maximum opportunity for prize-winning, particularly for new competitors.
The One Gun Challenge is an additional attraction. For this, shooters must use the same gun, in the same caliber, with the same scope. Prizewinners will have the highest combined scores from the EBR, 50 Yard Benchrest, Speed Silhouette and American Field Target competitions.
For full details, check out the Extreme Benchrest website. There’s an online contact form available, should you have questions.
The 2018 Extreme Benchrest Pro class was won by Claudio Flores from Chile. He used a .22 caliber Brocock Bantam Sniper HP air rifle. That’s Claudio above. Who will win this year and with what air rifle? The best way to know is to be there and experience EBR 2019 yourself!
And did we mention that EBR 2019 will have the highest Extreme Benchrest prize money ever?
