Let me hear from all of you who are coming, or considering coming (so I can convince you to come!) to the Port Colborne match this Saturday, May 10.

If any of you are driving from the GTA or western Ontario, and want to car pool for the last 30-40 minutes, you are welcome to ride with me (PM me).

Remember, if it's your first time shooting at Port Colborne, ITS FREE!!

Don't worry if you don't have your gun completely dialed in. We are out to have a good time, and you will have a lot of time to paper punch before the match starts. A bunch of good guys will be one hand to give any assistance if its needed.

Come on out, you won't regret it!!

Just so you don't think your message has fallen of deaf ears, lol, I will be there. My targets are all tested and calibrated, and I might test one that was left in the car as I thought that it would not be used this year. I was very much surprised that my favourite mouse target did not pass the point blank pistol test and needed 3/4 of a turn removed from the tension spring. A brand new Pounded Paddle target, that had never been shot at, did not pass, either, but that was a minor adjustment. So that everyone knows this, my nasty crab target passed with flying colours, lol. If you didn't knock it down, you missed, hehe. See you on Saturday.

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

I'm 99% sure that I'll be there. I'm not even moderately prepared, but it should be a good learning experience :lol:

I'll be there, hopefully shooting the Steyr, assuming Keyrigger can work his magic on it! If not, it'll be the trusty ole' HW97

Great news guys!!!

Can't wait.

It looks like we should have a good size turn out. Numerous other shooters are coming who have not posted here.

The Hunter Division should have a full roster of awards this match!! (Top Gun, 2nd, 3rd)

I'm very happy to see that!

Thanks for making the effort to come out guys!! We should have a blast.

Like I told you Super...we are getting serious about targets falling with impact energy down to 5 foot pounds. Many will go down with even less, but 5fpe is the promise.

We specifically mentioned to all who are setting up the course to have tested their targets prior to the match.

If a target is contested, MAC has a test pistol to determine accurately if it meets the requirement :D

No, that is not the correct location for the club, but that address is correct. Most of these map programs do not allow you to change what you get from them, and therefore are mostly garbage. Unless you know the territory, you will become hopelessly lost, using these geeks method of locating an address. Here is the actual location on the map, and it takes way to long to get this result, lol.
