Welcome to this year’s edition of TSO.

This all steel match will include both positional and prone shooting in order to find out who is the best all-around shooter.

Magnetospeed T1000 hit indicators will be used at longer shooting distances. The shooting locations are scattered and you need a car to go between some stages (carpooling is recommended).

The maximum number of shooters might increase. We will do our best to increase the number of slots. Don’t hesitate to sign up even if the match is full.
