Turns out, I could shoot Vimbar matches. "Vimbar" stands for VIntage Military Bolt Action Rifle and it's the brainchild of Browning's Denny Wilcox and his friend Peter Sodoma. Like me, Wilcox picked up a Mosin, shot it, and thought, "what a fun gun." Unlike me, Wilcock has his own 1,200 yard range and, he thought further, "I need to make up a game for these rifles." He and Sodoma came up with the rules of Vimbar and its sister event, Vimsar (VIntage Military Semi Automatic Rifle). Think "G.I. Action Shooting" and you've got the idea of Vimbar/Vimsar. You shoot at man-sized reactive targets from point blank out to 900 yards. In some courses you stay put, in others, you move around, shooting rifles, pistols, and sometimes even throwing dummy grenades. It seems like a hoot to me, and as long as the supply of $100 Mosins holds out, anyone can get into the game for very little money. You can learn more about it at Vimbar.com.
