Just over two weeks ago, the seemingly nowhere town of Finger, Tennessee was flooded with over 200 of the nation's top precision rifle shooters for the Precision Rifle Series Pro Series Finale. Finger is home to K&M Precision Rifle Training, one of the premier long range shooting and training facilities in the country, and the host of this year's Pro Series Finale.

In order to get an invite to the finale, shooters had to qualify in one of several ways. After the regular season match of the season, the following competitors qualify to shoot at the Pro Series Finale:

  • top 150 Open Division shooters
  • top 10 Tactical Division shooters
  • top 5 Production Division shooters
  • top 3 shooters from each PRS Regional Series Open Division season standing
  • top 5 shooters in each of the PRS Categories(Ladies, Senior, Junior, Military/Law Enforcement, International)

Competitors were allowed to utilize the range on Friday in order check their data and get a little practice in, and then the work began. Over the course of two days, shooters completed 20 stages, all designed to put their skills to the test. Stages were designed to test all different aspects of skill ranging from small targets requiring very precise wind calls, to shooting from unsupported positions, engaging targets at long range, and changing positions multiple times, pushing the shooters to make smooth transitions while wasting minimal time.

Below is an example of Stage 7, dubbed Pipe of Pain:

“Engage 10 rounds from 2 hasty firing positions. On command, move from the start position to the 1st opening in the pipe. Engage and hit each target on the 500 yard IPSC plate rack with one round starting from largest to smallest. You must hit each designated target before moving to the next smaller target. After 5 engagements move to the 2nd opening and reengage in the same manner. Move with bolt open and back during this stage. Gas guns move with weapons on safe.”

After two days of intense competition, competitors attended a banquet where the winners were crowned for both the match itself, as well as for the entire season. Top shooters received trophies along with generous cash payouts and a prize table to end all prize tables. With sponsors like Kahles, Armageddon Gear, Swarovski Optik, Nine Line, Hornady, Bergara, GA Precision, MDT, Manners Composite Stocks, Triggertech, Area 419, Proof Research, and RCBS just to name a few, Christmas came early for competitors at the Finale.
