Sunday winds hitting 30mph, targets being ripped while be hung targets had to be stapled to frames. With that being said 5 brave souls shoot the match. before getting to the scores I would like to thank Sheldon Tuff for help scoring targets and John Crisman for helping me hang targets.
For shooters interested in shooting our match we have two classes custom and factory class. We shoot either 100/200 yds or 200/300 yds. The cost is $20.00 for the first yardage and $15.00 for the second yardage. Custom class rifles have to have a 6 power scope, cannot weigh over 10 lbs and have a magazine well able to hold 2 rounds. The caliber is any case that has the capacity of a 30/30 cartridge. (for the next 2 years we are letting any caliber shoot)
Factory class is anything you want to bring if you feel you can shoot at 100,200 or 300 yds with a 22 go for it. If anybody has any questions please leave a message at the security office and I’ll get back to you.
This Sunday was the Hunter Benchrest match, Dave Reymore came out with a vengeance at last match he came in last (After the second round his bolt handle came off). Today he was perfect until his last target when he dropped one point, winning with a 249-12x the other two shooters couldn’t catch him, Howie shot a 247-8x and Ron Orton shot a 245-6x.Hope to see more shooters next month.
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!
