A great time was had by all. I only am sorry I didn't get a picture of George shooting his Whiscombe for a first in the Piston class.

I linked this from Barnes website. I hope he doesn't mind! These are typical of the target types that we use. Usually 30 targets, 2 shots at each, for a total of 60 points. The Hole ranges from 1.5 inches for a forced standing shot down to 3/8 inch. The distances vary from a minimum of 10 yards to a maximum of 55 yards.

Here is an example. The orangy-red circle is the target paddle, that when hit, causes the target to fall backwards and scores a hit. The cord is the reset line and this target is usually placed from 25 yards out and further. It would be normal to shoot at this target at our maximum distance of 55 yards.

When you are long winded, is that a sign of Wisdom or Old Age?

That looks like a great target to take shots at....8)
What kind of energy would it take to trip that target at those distances?

Just a quick question, wouldn't it be more challenging with standing position or is it not possible ?

There are often one or two shots where you are forced to stand, They are usually where the larger diameter targets come in to play, i.e. over 1 inch. Also there are usually confined to 25 yards or less. This is a precision game, and standing allows for less precision, no matter how good you are.

That is a shooting harness and you are correct, they are not allowed in the UK. (that's me wearing it)

However they are allowed in the US and most Canadian shooters use them.

Unique to Canada is the use of bipods, no other country allows them. In fact, you could use just about anything to aid in your shooting, the organizers have found that it really comes down to personal skill -and it also levels the playing field a bit, so if you have a $200 rifle, you can reasonably still shoot as well as a fellow with a $3000 rifle. There are both piston and PCP divisions.

Although the person with the big $$ invested has probably also invested a lot of time and effort to learn how to shoot it well. But that doesn't mean you can't also do the same with a $200 rifle. Heck if you don't have a scope that has adjustable parallax (which determines range) I'm sure you could partner up with someone who does, and will tell you the distance to each target.

Bottom line, come out and shoot, it's a great way to spend a day, the environment is very friendly (I've just started myself, that was my 2nd match)

There is no "competition" amongst shooters - yes it is a competition, but when you're shooting at each station (usually 10 stations), it is just you and your shooting partner, and you end up helping each other out i.e. "I think it's 23 yards to the target, how about you?" and you have a great time.

Bottom line - It's a tonne of fun.
