Uvalde, New Braunfels, PSC, Greenwood, Sour Lake, Victoria, and Midlothian are the places I can name offhand.Ben where did you shoot, Ft. Stockton?
That's the problem with the design of the course of fire. It's way too easy for Unlimited shooting freestyle. It's discouragingly difficult for Standing Production.Missed one out of 80 with Remington XP-100 and finished around 100th place. Tough competition.
I shot silhouette's when I lived upstate NY, region 1. Shooting season was from April (weather permitting) to Sept maybe Oct. I shot every weekend, 3 matches and 4th weekend practice. I purchased bullets in bulk and powder in 10 lb lots. I shot 7br, 44 magnum revolver, 357 maximum in a Contender. 22 silhouette's too.
I've never noticed a problem with static building up on the carpeted surface. However, if you spill any amount of powder it has a tendency to stay in the carpet and needs to be vacuumed out. Static and dryness aren't a problem here in Texas and wasn't in Colorado or Virginia, either.I can imagine.
Just had a thought (shocking, I know).... does static ever build up with the carpet?
We're dry where I live, esp in the winter, and static can be a big problem with certain things.

Nothing special about my setup. Small bench for a small space, made from a Gorilla rack workbench. Rock Chucker on the right, formerly had a Dillon 550B on the left. Bullets on the first shelf, brass on the bottom (disregard the bin of brass sitting out on the floor...my wife decided she needed to "borrow" one of my plastic bins...) Powder stored in the shelves and pullout bins on the left, dies and tools on the top shelf. The benchtop is a re-purposed kitchen countertop covered in indoor-outdoor carpeting. Why the carpeting on the benchtop? Well...I don't really know...seemed like a good idea at the time, I guess. Wouldn't do it again. Stool is highly adjustable for height, works great for those processes when I sit, and does double duty at the benchrest matches. Tumbler, sonic cleaner and all the associated messy stuff is out in the garage.
