Hi folks. Sorry about the delay in results but I haven’t had a computer for 4 months.
It was a challenging day with winds coming from all points of the compass. Even changing 180 degrees between two shots. We had 5 intrepid souls try their luck and a new shooter Gary Handel (forgive me if I mis spelled it) and a note, there will NOT be a shoot July 30th as I will be in Raton for matches there.
For you new shooters, please come watch or try it. The only thing you need is a single shot rifle and lead bullets. If you want to try your luck with a big bore lever gun, you will need to load it one shot at a time. You will also need cross sticks, a mat and lead bullets. You can call if you have questions.
|Brian Harrison||45-70||12 with one chicken|
|Richard Trees||40-65||10 with 1 chicken|
|Bob Hover||45-100||8 and no feathers|
|Wes Bayles||????||7 and no feathers|
|Gary Handel||45-100||3 And that's a respectable score for a first time shooter with a borrowed rifle|
Another glorious day on the range. Just perfect for shooting. Look at Bob Hovers results, great for shooting and hitting. I forgot about the hitting part but had fun shooting.
We are working on improving range 9. Notice there are a few new targets at the 550 yard line with 2 more scheduled to be installed soon.
Weather guy said 7 to 15 mph winds. Yeah, if you added both those numbers together you might have been close to what the shooters experienced. More like 25 mph winds. Gads I love those weather forecasters.
We had 5 intrepid souls brave the gale force winds and take their shots.
Here are the results:
- Will Robinson with a 25 out of 40 and 2 chickens.
- Marc Pinjuv with an 18 out of 40 with 3 chickens with a borrowed rifle.
- Richard Trees with an 18 out of 40 and 1 chicken.
- Wes Bayles with a 6 total.
- Bob Hover with a 5 total and a new load.
One shooter commented that this wasn’t his worst score yet, but he was still working on it.
I love a sense of humor!
