No problem. Maybe we can direct a few eyeballs in that direction.

We did it again!

Only 6 shooters this time but two newbies, and we had 2 new stages to test out. I built a tank trap out of 7' long 4x4's and we swapped out the barrels with a pyramid stack of sm. square hay bales.

The weather made a bit of a challenge too. Temps were cooler with overcast skies and a 5-10 mph wind that was coming over your left shoulder ... most of the time. That doesn't sound like much wind, but it doesn't take much to blow a subsonic 22 round off target at 100 yards. In fact most all of the hits on that target were on the lower right area of the circle. I was holding about 2" left of center and still impacting a little right and low.

There were also a few more mental errors yesterday. Nothing safety related, but I think there were 4 instances where people shot one round at the wrong target and didn't get credit for a hit. Two of the occurrences were on the dice. One shooter rolled 75, 75, 100, but instead shot 75, 100, 100 and didn't get credit for the middle shot. Other times, shooters lost count and shot too many rounds before switching targets/positions. Just goes to show, when you think you've run out of ways to throw away points, you surprise yourself.

Sorry, not much for pictures this time. We were short on spectators and everyone had a job timing, spotting hits, scorekeeping, etc. The few pictures I took were mostly blackmail photos of people swinging the chicken.

It looks like a couple of us will be talking to the ABC Sportsmen's group on October 2 to see if they are interested in running something more official by NRL22.org standards. I wasn't able to go to the Holmen R&G event, but I checked in with one of the guys there afterward and it sounded like they had about a dozen shooters and it went very well.

I headed down to Grantsburg and we ran another shoot with my folks and their neighbors/friends.

We had a total of 8 shooters this time, mostly newbies but it went well. I think the Ruger 10/22 was the most represented gun at this shoot, and even with a basic 4x scope they did well. Goes to show that you don't have to have anything special to have fun at this game.

Here is a the course of fire and a quick photo. Since there were so many new shooters, I spent a lot of time coordinating and someone else took photos. I'm sure they got some better pictures but I just don't have them.

Why are you so far away? It definatly looks like a great time. Any room for camping?
I saved alot on my insurance just by switching into reverse and fleeing the scene of the accident.

Dave, I'm sure we could find room to put you up for a night or two.

I'm not sure we will be running any more this fall, but I plan to start as soon as the snow settles again next spring. I've already got ideas for a few new stages and I'm building the props.

Feel free to take any of the course info that I posted and meet your buddies at your local range. That is the whole goal, get more people shooting.

The weather looks good for this weekend so we're running a shoot on Saturday.

If anyone is interested send me a message!

I'll post the course of fire and some photos when we are done.

Well, that turned out to be a fantastic day! The sun was shining, the temp was in the low to mid 40's and we had a great group of 7 shooters.

I pretty much got the course set up in the morning and then the rest of the shooting crew took over running things once we stated. It was nice not to have to micro-manage the event. Everyone did an awesome job of being ready with the timer, spotting hits, keeping score ... and being prompt with a small amount of heckling when it was justified.

Format was the same as before, 5 stages of 9 or 10 rounds each on a +/- 2 minute time clock. We repeated a couple stages we've done before and had a couple new ones.

I had a couple feeding problems that turned out to be related to a bad magazine, but overall it went well. There ended up being a tie for first, which was promptly settled with a KYL shoot off. Both shooters cleaned all 7 gongs, even the 1/2" one. This lead to a second shoot off on the 1/2" gong only. It was over in one round, but everyone enjoyed the show.

Given I wasn't as tied up running things, I was able get quite a few photos and some video. We used a phone to video from behind the shooters, a camera on a tripod to video from in front of the shooters, and a PhoneScope on a spotting scope to video the targets. I have a young friend who does some novice editing. She is going to put together a short collage of the clips.

I'll download and post a few photos soon, and hopefully find a way to post the video when it is done. For now, here is the course of fire.

I tried posting the video but it won't let me. Not sure how else to do it.

It is on my facebook page. If anyone wants the link to that, just send me a PM.

If the video were on Youtube we could include here on the forum but the server is set to reject attachments over a certain size requirement.

Just post the link to your Facebook page with the video.

We had another good match this weekend. Seven shooters total. Fortunately we didn’t get any of the rain/snow this far north.

I try to do at least one new stage each time. This one was a hanging tire that you had to shoot from, both from the outside the tire and through the middle. I never knew I could wobble so many different directions at once.

I also finished assembling a custom 10/22 for a fellow shooter this weekend. When I have time, I’ll get it posted in the rimfire section. Let’s just say that I think she will be quite the competitor with it at the next match.
