Well Sunday rolled and seven brave soles came out to shoot, one our match directors had gun problems so he just came out to run the match. Thanks Dave.
The 100yd match was close all the way to the last target. 2 points between 2 shooters, Howie lucked out against Ron C (he’s using a factory gun with a after market trigger, that’s why he in custom class).
Then came 200yds and here comes the mirage it’s easy seeing the target at 200yds with a 6 power scope and the wind started playing with us calm one second and then a quick gust.
Hope to some new shooters next month June 9th 100yds. Even if you don’t shoot come out to see what it’s like. You will enjoy yourself!

Only three shooters showed up Sunday after the first 2 shots there were only 2. Dave turned around with just the both handles in his hand and the rest of the bold still in his rifle. That left Ron Orton and Howard Bloom, Howard lucked out on the first and cleaned it Ron dropped three second target Howard dropped 1 and Ron dropped 3. It started to get windy and Ron suggested we stop. That’s how we ended up. How to get some more shooters out there. You need a rifle with a case capacity of a 30-30 case 6 power scope and weighting under 10lbs.
Sunday started out in the low 40’s with little wind by third relay the wind was pushing 15mph with gust of 25. Going into the last relay Ron Orton was leading but he and the wind had a battle and the wind won and he dropped 6 points and cost him the match. Next Hunter Benchrest is April 14th 2013 200 yards set up at 7am.
