August 10th at Port

Post by Mac » Sat Aug 03, 2013 8:10 pm

There will be a practise/fun day at Port on Saturday, August 10th. There are no awards, nor is there an organized match. Water will be supplied and there will be a $5 fee to give to the PC&DCC. I will be there no later than 9:00 AM and we start shooting as soon as we have set up whatever targets we choose.

I am bringing a half dozen or so field targets with full hit zones and will be setting up two or three lanes for pistol and standing rifle. If some others do the same, we can have a small match with pistols and rifles. I will be bringing my FWB 300 Mini equipped with the match diopter sights for the rifle shooting and maybe a couple of different pistols to try. We can set lanes from 11 to 20 (at the far end) so that the lanes and sight in range can be used at the same time. The path from beside the clubhouse can be used to reach these forest lanes with no effect on the sight-in range.

The sight in range will be set up with whatever folks bring out. We have to get out the large swinger target that Chris donated; meant to do that at the nationals and just ran out of time. I could see some fun side competitions using this target. Any rifle under 20 ft/lb is good. I'll be sighting in my springer for the September match. All pistols must be under 500 fps with the pellets you will be using.

The paper targets and spinners from the nationals will also be available. This set-up will be a real team effort and the more folks on the team, the better the day. We can even head somewhere for lunch and return to the club for more shooting. If you ant to, you can bring your own lunch as well. We will see how the day unfolds.

If you can let me know you will be attending, that will be great, but even if you are unsure until the last moment, come out and have some fun.

Hope to see a good group out on Saturday.

Had a real fun day at the club today. We had a 25 yard and a 55 yards range set up on the sight-in range, one for standing and pistol and the other for ft rifles. Spent time there until the early afternoon.

Len and I set up a four lane course with three targets per lane that we shot through twice in the afternoon. Four of us shot standing with our rifles, Chris shot from his chair and Rob shot a pistol from the seated position. Len, George and I were shooting with 10M match rifles with match sights and Dean practised with his scoped Steyr. Len used a match P70 and George and I shot our FWB 300s. Chris shot with his new Brocock and Rob with his 1377.

Marshall and his son thomas attended as well as Tony M. They participated on the sight-in range and then had to leave in the early afternoon.

The goal for today was a relaxed atmosphere and lots of fun. Mission accomplished.

There were some pictures taken and I hope a few will get posted.

We have one more day like this scheduled for the first Saturday in November, when weather could play a role. Next FT match in Port is on September 14th.

That was great fun, and I look forward to the next one.

Chris and I actually managed to shoot through the four lane course four times !

Thanks to you, Dean and Deb

Nice to see the pics and interesting to look at the variations in shooting style.

Looking forward to the full match on September 14th. Maybe I will perform a little better on the standing lanes.
