The Course of Fire has been posted on the COF page. It is pretty much the same as last time as that seemed ok. See you on Sunday.
Scores on the Results page – Well shot the Reed brothers who zeroed for each other!!
The shoot was fun but it went on a bit and I remembered half way through that I meant to revise it after the last one. So if it took too long and you didn’t have time to stay to the end – blame me. I will overhaul the course of fire and stick to two distances and see how we can make it run a bit quicker.
It will help if you have a zeroed rifle! The principal is ok and seems popular but there is more work to do on the course of fire.
Will try harder.
Its going to be hot and I promise there wont be any sand shifting this week.
The course of fire is on the COF page and a further copy can be viewed using the link below.
180708 SR4 Course of Fire
See you on Sunday
Please see and consider signing this petition – It may help with the current legislation. – Keep updated on this at our Legislation page
Phew what a scorcher!
Actually with fewer numbers we got through faster and stayed largely in the shade. A very pleasant day all round. Some good shooting from the usual suspects and the VZ58 are starting to give the AR15’s a run for their money. I will get mine about right by the time I have to hand it in!
Dont forget to sign the petition and write to your MP. The governments argument for the bans are weak as there have been no crimes and if you think you aren’t affected your turn will come unless you do something. contact your MP using the very good They work for you website.
It really couldn’t be much easier so spare 10 minutes for your sport and your mates.
Scores on the results page.
Well that was a busy day. We got the sand delivered (4 tons) and a number of us got it from the car park to the butts. That was hard enough but we were overwhelmed with offers of support to help get this into place.
Well that wasnt strictly true as I rather press-gang al those present to help shift the stuff up the bank and into place. So apologies about that but we can do the sand job with out a strong contingent so the willingness of members to help move the stuff was really appreciated. There are some jobs we can’t to without everyone helping. We are volunteers and I am most grateful for the support.
It took 20 minutes to shift the sand into place and then get on with the shoot that was pretty busy. I think the exercise whilst being good for us did wear some of us out.
There were however some good scores and it was a good day.
Thanks again for the help. We rely on everyone lending a hand.
See you at the next one that is Service Rifle.
Scores on the Results page. – If there are any errors in the results, blam me I’m Knackered!
Sundays shoot is the above that this year is being shot as a Queens 2. That is to say 2×10 at 3/5/6 TR first detail followed by Scoped etc.
See you then
We have a work party coming up and it may be next weekend but we have yet to finalise the details so keep an eye on the site for an announcement.
Good day and was pretty busy. There was a bit of a delay to get going as we discovered some local wasps had built a nest in the 300 yard junction box. This had to be humanely removed before we could get going (a broom and a foot). No injuries reported. Some good shooting and excellent scores but unfortunately not from the TR contingent! could try harder.
No firm news yet on the proposed work party so keep an eye on the web for news. The Scores are on the results page.
Sundays shoot is a Gallery Rifle event at 100 yards so this is an opportunity to use some of those things that are in the back of the cupboard and zero others.
See you then
You should also read the Legislation page as I have added some new items regarding the forthcoming ban. You are requested to write to your MP and make a protest. Some suggested wordings are attached. The items are published courtesy of the 50 cal association and If you think it doesn’t matter to you then think again as your rifle type will be next sooner or later. We cannot let things be banned when there is no evidence of any danger of misuse. Those of us who are old enough to remember the last banks will remember how upsetting it is to go to the police station and hand over your treasured possessions and then walk away empty-handed with no guarantee of compensation. I remember only to well the injustice of the loss.
Dont let it happen to you without at least making a protest.
A great day with better weather than anticipated so that was a bonus.
The scores are on the results page, well shot to all and in particular Steve G in the classic category (188) and Bob S in the modern (200).
I was going to have a rant about all the black patches being used up but then I realised that the course of fire and attendance was about 1000 rounds in the morning. Not all those hit but it uses up the patches. At least we have plenty in stock this time.
Some pictures of the day
The next shoot is a Gallery Rifle so bring the toys along. Some who got a less than perfect scores maybe coud do with doing some zeroing!
See you then.
Scores on the results pages – very well shot by some (not me though). TR was won by Rob B with a 103.13 and the scoped by Paul U with a 105.12.
Scores on the results page, any mistakes then let me know as it’s probably my fault.
AGM – Job done, no drama, business as usual and a profitable year.
Next shoot is a Service Rifle.
Note – we will have a Work Party on Sunday 17 June – can’t wait & details to follow. Remember the club is run for you by volunteers so help if you can.
The clubs AGM is on Sunday 29 April in the club house. Nominally it will take place at 2pm but if we finish the shoot early then we may bring it forward a bit.
So this means – don’t be late!
The agenda is here:-
2017 AGM Minutes
We don’t have any earth shattering things to discuss or announce as its pretty much business as usual. If you have questions to submit then please do so in advance if you want an answer on the day.
Remember – rumours are destabilising so if you want to know what the club is doing then ask the committee and don’t rely on third hand information & assumptions.
The shoot is the Kirby Cup that is a Queens 1. That is to say its 2 x 7 at 3/5/6.TR shooters first then scoped and then the Muzzle break stuff for each distance. You know the usual drill.
See you on Sunday
