Black Powder Cartridge Rifle Silhouette November 2020 Match

Hello Shooters,

Well we just had our silhouette match. Fantastic weather, but we all struggled with that South sun. By noon the targets just blended in with the background, a combination of haze and south sun. Combine that with the rivalry between myself and Jeff Kirkwood and you have a perfect set-up for “Nag’s” to instigate, which he did. While Jeff and I were comparing the others score to see how we were doing against each other, Nag’s just kept whittling away at each of us. We were so pre-occupied with each other we never noticed the “dark  horse” sneaking by us on the  outside. Add my front sight falling off on the last relay and I came in a poor 3rd, Jeff had a strong second place, then we looked up to a grinning “Nag’s” who came in first. My only conciliation is that I got high chicken score, The bottom line is we all had a roaring good time and a lot of laughs. After all that is what a match should be all about, friendship, shooting against yourself and having a fun time. See you at the next match

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.
