Great day to break in the new rails. We have even obtained range flags. I guess the wind gods decided that since we had flags, they would put them to use with winds at 20 mph plus gusts. O swell fun.
We had 4 brave soldiers show and test their skills against the gales. Brian Harrison was top gun with a 15, with two chickens. The rest of us, Bob Hover, Wes Bayles and myself just showed up for the lesson.
If the regular rifles want to test their skills, the animal targets were designed for high power shooters, but the trick is, no resting. Yup that game is shot off hand the whole way. Try it! It is quite challenging!
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.
