Classic Mc Queens

Good turn out on a chilly but pleasant day. Over 50 scores recorded and we managed to move things along reasonably promptly. The results are on the scores page.

The main competition was for Classic Sniper Rifles at 200 yards but the moderns shot as well. It is a smaller scoring rings on the 200 McQueens and a particularly small V bull.

This was reflected in the scores but there were some good results. The top classic shot was Neil B with 45.2 (the No 4 had a modern scope) but we will let him off with this once.

Kevin M and Dean H both managed 50.2’s that is good shooting on this surprisingly difficult shoot.

Anyway it was a good day and worth turning up for.

The next shoot is a Queens 1 (2×7 at 300, 500 & 600) TR rifles shoot first but open to all and the AGM follows the shoot in the club house.

Service Rfile 2 Sunday 31 March 2019 – Updated

Scores are on the results page – Well shot all. The shuffle round of the details seemed to make it go a bit quicker so we will probably stick with that until we decide to change it again.

It’s the classic McQueen next but all are welcome etc.

We have loud things on the range from time to time but there is only one Gary and his M44′ Spare a thought for the chap next to him!

 

 

 

The Penguin Trophy Updateed

Sundays shoot is the Penguin Trophy that is 2×10 at 300 with a .303 and 2×10 at 600 with a 7.62 target rifle. The TR shooters will go first and then everyone else can shoot and we will organise it so the muzzle brakes don’t upset anyone.

Horsham will be putting in a team although you will probably recognise them.

Update

Scores posted to the results page. The team even was shot with teams of Three and was won by Horsham with 248.16 against our 233.6. We seem to be a bit limited on TR shooters at the moment and had to  let two of ours shoot for Horsham. Still it was fun to dig out the 303’s and try to get a decent score on a modern 7.62 target.

It was a good day and all those who turned up enjoyed it.

The next one is a Scoped Rifle so I will try to think up a course of fire that is both challenging and doesn’t take all day to get through – no pressure then.

The Hero Shoot, sunday 6 January

Happy New Year to you all

Even Happier to those who have renewed their membership for 2019 – Thanks

Sundays Shoot is the Hero shoot, so-called as its likely to be cold and only Heroe’s will turn up. We will start at 100 yards on the Gallery targets and may fall back to 200 yards if there is sufficient demand (and persons willing to go to the Butts)

You can bring what you like to shoot providing it’s within the range limits and legal etc.

See you Sunday
