What's the point competing if my HW97 and my HW100 have no sights built in and if I take my scopes off, there is no way really I can point properly and shoot. If I keep them on I would have an advantage from the guys that are not using their sights. :x

I may be misunderstanding you, but you can absolutely shoot with a scope at this match. A couple of us are choosing to use open sights. Don't worry about having the advantage, we're not worrying about winning :lol:

Scopes up to 16 power are allowed. Just a couple of guys want to try open sights just for the fun of it. Definitely leave your scopes on your guns and come on out and have fun.

Just looked and it is supposed to be 11 degrees by 11:00AM and make it up to 13 in the afternoon. Wind is forecast to be 30 kph all day.

Range estimation and proper hold for wind will be what gets it done. There are 11 out of 12 lanes that can have targets at 45 yards and beyond and 6 of those can be 50+ yards.

The guys that are setting up lanes should probably bring boots. There are some wet areas on the trail, but if you walk on the edge, even shoes would be OK. I'll be wearing shoes for the match. Layered clothing would be good and a hoodie or hat might be advisable because of the constant wind.

For a November match, I am definitely not complaining. Going to be a great day. Four gallons of chili, 10 loaves of Italian bread, 4 dozen donuts and lots of hot chocolate will be part of the day as well. See the lucky folks in the morning.

Tim

Ahhh...Fond memories of last years match! It was my first experience of FT and I had a blast! Hooked ever since. The Chili really hit the spot too! Looking forward to tomorrow.

See you all in the morning!

It was a beautiful day after all .... just warm, sunny, and just a bit of wind , it was perfect day for EF shoot.
I think today was a better day than some of the days we had in summer FT match.

I'll be looking forward to shoot the next pistol match at our club Burlington .... Indoor .... heated .... yeah ....

Burlington heated...Well I guess technically it is but I think its just a clever optical illusion LOL. Well the EF was a resounding success, 32 shooters excellent conditions and a good time was had by all. Thanks to all the guys that helped cleanup targets and stuff at the end. It makes it much easier on Tim and Dennis who usually end up doing the lions share of the work at these events.

Perfect temperature, no bugs, big kill zones, lots of laughter, hot chili, fresh donuts and new friends and fellow shooters! Just doesn't get any better! Big thanks to Tim, Dennis and all those who made it possible!
