It was raining hard and flash flood warnings were activated the night before. Shortly after sunrise the wind picked up and was gusting over 30 MPG. This made a normally windy day look calm. Tu Nguyen overcame the elements and connected with 2, 3-in-a-row impacts at 2117 yards, this stage performance and 4 hits at 1730 yards is an great performance in normal conditions but in the massive wind was truly exceptional. Tu is shooting a Desert Tech HTI chambered in .416 Barrett, with Nightforce optics, a custom bipod with hand loaded ammo. This combo was shot from modified massage table. We are all going to need our “A” game next month to unseat the current SouthWest ULR Top Gun, Tu Nguyen.
Our next match is November 4th, we will have 3 40x40 targets (2650-1750 yards), and 3 full sets of electronics. Final details (exact location, COF, weather report) will be emailed out Wednesday before the match. You can plan on the Barstow area and going hot at Sunrise (a little after 7AM).
