Rangemaster Tactical Conference & St. Jude

16-Apr-10 – 10:12 by ToddG

At next weekend’s Rangemaster Tactical Conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma, pistol-training.com will be partnering with Rangemaster and host U.S. Shooting Academy to put on a side match that will raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the nation’s leading centers in the fight against childhood cancer.

The match will cost $5 per entry and will give the competitor three chances to shoot the F.A.S.T. drill. Of course, it’s not just the F.A.S.T. drill…

There will be three targets set up for the F.A.S.T., each with an eight inch circle and a 3×5 card. The 3×5 card on all three targets will be surrounded by twenty dollar bills. Each $20 bill that gets shot will cost the competitor $20. All money raised (both the entry fees and the $20’s) will be donated to St. Jude in the name of the competitor with the best F.A.S.T. score. pistol-training.com will be adding the initial twelve $20s to the pot, too!

The winner will also be awarded a special plaque.

And of course, competitors are also eligible for a F.A.S.T. Challenge Coin if two of their three runs are clean and performed in less than five seconds. (note: while competitors can sign up as many times as they want for $5 per three runs, only a competitor’s first runs will be eligible for winning a coin, per F.A.S.T. rules)

Our thanks to the great folks at Rangemaster for putting this together and allowing pistol-training.com to play a role in raising money for such a great cause.

Train hard & stay safe! ToddG

  6. Great idea for a great cause! I wish I could attend. Not that I’d get a coin but I love helping out St. Jude.

  8. Maybe this is a dumb question, but is the side match for conference attendees only? I looked over the post and Rangemaster’s site but couldn’t figure out one way or the other.

  9. Yes, the side match is for conference attendees only. We had some last minute cancellations from some guys being deployed to the sandbox this week. That created 3-4 slots if anyone wishes to register.

  10. Hmm, not to be a party pooper, but isn’t defacing money a federal crime? It would be horrible if someone actually got fined for this. Looks like great fun though.

    United States Code
    TITLE 18 – CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
    PART I – CRIMES
    CHAPTER 17 – COINS AND CURRENCY
    ยง 333. Mutilation of national bank obligations

    Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill,
    draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

  11. Great idea! Wish I could make it.

  12. Let’s try this again. I AM NOT YOUR LAWYER, I AM NOT GIVING YOU LEGAL ADVICE. THE VIEWS REFLECTED BELOW ARE MY OWN AND DO NOT REFLECT AN OFFICIAL OPINION OF ANY MPLOYER/GOVERNMENTAL ENTITY.

    An essential element of the statute’s violation is the INTENT TO RENDER THE BILL UNFIT FOR REISSUE. Shooting at a card, missing it and putting up to two holes in a given bill which is going to be donated to St Judes is not
    likely to be deemed a manifestation of an intent to render the bill unfit for reissue.

  13. Well I see no Intent in this at all.. Were not trying to hit the bill!!!! We are aming at the 3×5 card. Nor will it render it unfit for reissue.

    Im in Ill be shooting this, and if I do it right I can shoot two clean and the third one cost me $80… Think about it.

    Good on you Todd..

  14. It’s ok. We’re actually using Iranian-made counterfeit $20’s smuggled into the country inside Cuban cigars carried by Mexican border jumpers.

    By ToddG on Apr 19, 2010

  15. todd was way ahead of the ball on this and did a great deal of research. he just scanned in some real $20’s and printed them out to scale for this purpose… this way it’s totally legal!

  16. That was FUN.

    Thanks, Todd…. and, yes, the Combat Roll Reload video that lead to the bulk of my contribution is on Facebook already.
