    Too early to start the 2018 thread? Heard Erud started a facebook page of the Palma Alliance. I believe 2018 will be the year the Alliance hits 100 members.

    I shot with Erud this am at MRC, it was a bit chilly. It appears "big blue" is ready for action in 2018....

    Thanks Marty, I think 100 members is definitely in the cards for 2018. The new Facebook page can be found here:

    https://www.facebook.com/PalmaAlliance1/

    Mgdietrich forgot to mention that he is now officially member #54. #55 slot is still available if you decide to walk the straight path!

    Would an occasional NBRSA outing preclude my acceptance/membership in the Palma Alliance?

    Kohai133,
    Alliance members are free to pursue any shooting disciplines they choose. The only rule of the club is is that if you are going to shoot NRA Prone (with a sling) matches (Mid Range Prone, Long Range Prone, Palma), it has to be with an iron-sighted Palma rifle shooting sub-156grain bullets, or sub-81 grains if it's a .223. There is no conflict for members who like to shoot NBRSA, F-Class, Smallbore, PRS, or whatever. You can email me at PalmaAlliance1@gmail.com if you'd like to join.

    Thanks,
    Erik

    So you don't consider F-class "prone"? ;)

    Prone yes, Palma, no. Wonder how long we can keep iron sights viable! Worked too hard to give them up quite yet...

    Palma Alliance is working to make shooting iron sight great again. Hopefully, we are buying enough front and rear sight to keep the manufacturers in business. Need to focus on team shooting and pair firing as well.

    @Erud did you like the tags for this post? I thought Morgens rifle was the "Rented Mule". What is this big blue stuff?

    I do like the tags. People like to call their rifles all kinds of silly names, I don't get involved with that...

    We get to name our rifles, but Ice Pumpkin or Man Boy are given?

    Party- Erud was very persuasive to the alliance for 2018...If I have a shot at NZ I need to spend as much time with "blue" as I can this year...

    Wouldn't it be fun if your beat prince taco with your own palma rifle? We know you can do it!!!! He knows you can too.....

    I have no idea why I spend so much time in you guys’ minds. I guess I should be flattered? o_O
