GAP Grind PRS Match on Shooting USA Tomorrow

GAP Grind 2020 Shooting USA Scoutten TV

This week, Shooting USA TV spotlights the 2020 GAP Grind, a major Pro-Am PRS event held in Tennessee. The 2020 GAP Grind/Bushnell Pro/Am took place last October at the K&M Precision Shooting Complex in Finger, Tennessee. In association with the Precision Rifle Series (PRS), the 3-day event, the biggest PRS-type match of the year, included professional and “amateur” classes with both individual and team competition. Competitors ranged from top professionals to those shooting their first-ever tactical match.

SHOW TIMES: This Shooting USA Episode airs Wednesday, February 19, 2021 at 9:00 PM Eastern and Pacific; 8:00 PM Central. If you miss the regular broadcast, you can stream the show at any time on Vimeo for $0.99 per episode.

The GAP Grind is held at the impressive K&M Shooting Complex in Tennessee:

Lots of Action, with 20+ Stages
The GAP Grind is a challenging, “high tempo” match with minimal down-time between stages. Over the course of 20+ stages, competitors will fire 200+ shots at a variety of steel, paper, moving, and reactive targets out to 1,200 yards. Targets vary in size/difficulty based on the shooter’s position, distance, and time allotted. Most stages include “stressors” — i.e. time limits or required movement(s).

The GAP Grind typically attracts over 300 competitors — half experienced shooters and the other half newcomers to the sport. The key to growing the shooting sports is attracting new shooters. The best way to bring in “new blood” seems to be the Pro-Am type format. At the GAP Grind, experienced shooters share their knowledge and guide the new shooters through the competition.

GAP Grind Hardware
You’ll find the latest and greatest PRS hardware at the GAP Grind. Notable in 2019 was the fact that many top competitors “stepped down” from the 6.5/6mm Creedmoor to the smaller, more efficient 6mm Dasher, 6BRA and other 6mm cartridges. The Dasher offers excellent accuracy with less recoil than the 6.5 Creedmoor. Also, many top shooters are now running Kahles optics. Photo by Shelley Giddings.
