We’re excited to welcome you to The Defiance anTi Social, presented by Defiance Machine. Directed by Seth McAnally. The match will be held May 13th-15th, 2022 just 40 miles south of Great Falls, MT in the Little Belt Mountains. This is a match you’ll want to attend! Last year there were 5 rifles given away. The rest of the prize table was stacked! Thanks to all of the generous sponsors, this year is shaping up to be the same!
This match will be open to 100 individual competitors and 10 teams, testing their mental fortitude and resolve in realistic hunting-type scenarios. Course of fire will include 19 stages. The maximum round count is 152. Bring extra rounds for zero, power factor, etc. Max range of targets will be 1,000 yards. The round trip walk for the entire course of fire is approximately 2 miles.
Lunch will be provided Saturday, courtesy of Git-Lite.
Dinner will be provided Sunday, courtesy of Vortex Optics.
The range is at 5,000 feet elevation so please by prepared with cold weather gear. May in Montana can often mean highly unpredictable weather- that includes snow and high wind. This high altitude location, in the picturesque Little Belt Mountains, provides a beautiful backdrop for a perfect weekend of shooting and socialization.
