Some target maintenance

Post by Mac » Mon Feb 19, 2018 9:32 pm

Dave and I went out to the Grenville Club to do some target work today and found a little more snow than we bargained for. Dave dug the targets out with a shovel and I knocked the snow off the pivot points of the targets and applied a good coat of Rem-oil to prevent rust and to be sure they are ready to go when the snow melts.

We also did a little shooting on the targets, but had to reset them by hand after knocking down all we could see from one spot, since the lines were frozen into the ground and covered with over a foot of snow in some areas.

This is what it looked like out there.

A target at 30 yards was blocked by a chunk of snow, so I estimated where the hit-zone was and attempted to shoot through it. I watched the hole appear in the snow and the target fall. I took a pic on an angle where you can see the hole and the hit-zone. :shock: Dead centre hit. No, that hit on the face was not mine; far too big a splat for my sub 12 ft/lb gun

A fun day all in all. Thanks for the help and company, Dave.

Maybe we should become a winter club, no mosquitoes. Was a great day to be outside.
