    Ran across this video on YouTube.

    And this one of a different YouTuber shooting the challenge.

    Thought a few of us here may be interested in this. Time to participate in this year's actual Riflechair Cabin Fever Challenge ends on April 1st. But, using the rules to host similar events throughout the year shouldn't be out of the question.

    Rules, as set out by 'Riflechair' are below:

    CLASSES Class 1 Vintage: VZ-58 (stock), M305, M1A, AG42, VZ-52/57, SKS / M1 Carbine, M1 Garand, SAFN, AK47 (stock), etc

    Class 2 Modern: AR15 / TAVOR / Swiss Arms / XCR / FAMAE 542 / T97 / SL8 / TRICKED OUT AK47 / VZ58 / SKS / Other (see below)

    Class 3 All Bolt / Lever & Pump Guns


    a. VINTAGE: Rifles as issued to the infantry soldier - No significant modifications are permitted.

    b. MODDED or TRICKED OUT Vintage rifles may have (but not limited to): Any red dot / optical sights, extended mag release, modified stocks, magwell modifications, etc... There is a grey area around tricked out Vintage platforms but essentially any Vintage semi-auto that has been significantly modified beyond what a would have been used by the infantry soldier is modified and 'tricked-out'.

    POSITIONS All shots are unsupported, no rests or bi-pods (use of a carrying sling as a hasty sling is OK).

    Distance to target 100 yards/meters. Target is an 8" circle (free target below)

    AMMUNITION & RELOADING Course of fire is 20 rounds: 5 rounds standing, 5 rounds kneeling, 5 rounds prone, 5 rounds sitting. Mandatory reload with five round charger/magazine/stripper clip between each position change.

    SCORING Time is calculated from first shot fired to last shot fired. Score is 5 points per shot on a 8 inch diameter circle, bullets that cut the perimeter of the circle count as hits, bullets outside the circle are misses.

    (Hits on 8" X 5)
    ----------------— X 100 = Score
    (Time in Seconds)

    DEADLINES The challenge opens March 1 2018 and closes April 1 2018. The winner will receive bragging rights (and might) receive a prize.
