Black Powder Silhouette September 2019 Match

Well the shoot has come and gone. Early morning had 25 mph plus winds. For those in the know, that will move a big slow bullet up to 3 feet at 500 yards. Add my normal flinch, jerk style of shooting and that adds up to a lot of windage. But thank the wind gods, the afternoon was relatively calm. We also had two new shooters at this match. John Nagazyna, a new member who is also helping to acquire materials for club ranges and targets, and Robert Bobbett. He is the shortest of our shooters and shoots the biggest rifle on the line. A 45-110. That is way out of my league.

John Nagazyna 45-70 16 and 1 chicken
Wes Bayles unk 15 and no chickens
Jeff Kirkwood 45-70 14 and 1 chicken
Bob Hover 45-100 14 and 0 chickens
Brian Harrison 40-83 11 and 0 chickens
Bob Bobbett 45-110 6 with 1 chicken
Wally Pinjuv 38-50 2 chickens and dnf
