URGENT - IBS Statement on COVID-19 and Registered Matches


With the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, please pay close attention to the IBS match schedule.  Some matches are being canceled due to local or state orders, while some are not if the range's jurisdiction has lifted ordes. Shooter of the Year points earned this year are still valid.  Please pay close attention to schedule updates.  If in doubt, please contact the match director for the latest information.  Match procedures may be modified by match directors to ensure social distancing.


IBS Factory Class Rules


To all of our IBS members,
In effort to strengthen and diversify the Long Range shooting disciplines the Long Range Committee and the IBS E-Board has developed two new classes to shooters other than the traditional Heavy and Light Gun categories. At all Ranges that choose to participate, we will introduce a Factory Class and a Tactical Class.(rules included)
It is our goal to offer these classes to shooters that cannot or do not find the traditional Heavy and Light Gun classes desirable. With the large surge in Tactical style shooting we felt we were leaving an opportunity to include these shooters unattended. Please review these rules and feel free to contact your local ranges or LR committee member with any additional questions.
The International Benchrest Shooters.
