What a beautiful shooting day. Blue skies, light winds and pleasant temperatures. You should have been there. We had a mixed bag of shooters and spectators, even one new guy that wants to get started. Results of the top 4 places are as follows.

Brian Harrison, first place with a 17
Jeff Kirkwood, second place with a 15
Richard Trees, third place with a 13
Bob Hover, 4th with a 12. Seems he mixed loads.

Black Powder Silhouette March Match

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!
