Range Report

The club committee has decided that Wednesday shoots no longer count as an "attendance" for the purposes of gun support :(  So I now have to shoot on either a Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning.

So today Shooting Buddy and I decided to head up for the Saturday afternoon shoot.

We were pleased to see that the range wasn't crowded out (it can get busy on weekend shoots). We ended up squading with the other Wednesday Captain, four ex-students (well three for me, 5 for Shooting Buddy) and one other guy.  (Total of 8 people).  The other squad also had 8 or 9 people.

There were four stages set up all were fun to shoot, however the last stage we shot was the best.  There were 6 targets to be taken from the first shooting position, one target through a portal, two off to the other side of the range and then a set of stairs and platform with three targets visible AND a flying fox target!!!  Apart from having two jams :( it was a really fun shoot!  Most of us emptied the mag on the flying fox!

Oh and the weather was "just right" for shooting (about 26C with a gentle breeze).  If all the shoots on Saturday are like this maybe it won't be so bad.
