Another great day in Central Alberta. A great fun shoot indoors at the piant ball place. Once again Rocker 45 set up an afternoon of shooting and then he cooked burgers for everyone.
We had three young shooters ages about 11 to 13 who showed us how to shoot pistols. These kid were deadly.
Thanks to everone who showed up and made this another special day.

Have to agree no doubt the young shooters stole the shoot. They put a lot of lead down range today. And had a hoot doing it too.
Thanks again Brian a heck of a shoot, you got set up. Please send our thanks to the staff of Weekend Warriors. Those burgers sure hit the spot for that time frame gave everyone a chance to slow down, and breathe. Great time had by one and all I'd have to say. Can't wait for the next one in about 6 to 8 weeks.

What a weekend for airgunners across Canada .. 8)
We had the fellows from Alberta get together for a fun day of Shooting and socializing Saturday... By the sounds of things everyone had a great time...
Several Southern Ontario airgunners gathered at Waterdown for the Annual Spring Airgun Show as well as in Port Colbourne where another group gathered to introduce kids to the world of safe/fun airgun shooting..
Today the WCFTC have their meet and greet to kick things off for the 2011 season.. :shock: Wow... this is sweet!..
Enjoy Everyone! .... 8)

Our apologies on the lack of pics from the event. :oops: I inadvertently removed my camera from my truck to make room for 2 boys and air gun paraphernalia. Hence I have no pics. I will make a point of the next event to have some pics for your viewing pleasure. Even if I have to bribe the wife to come and take them, :wink: LMAO.

It has been a great weekend for Canadian Airgunners. East coast boys I guess your next. he he

Regards

Sorry - I did not have a camera either :( - never even thought of it.
I do still have the targets - however - :shock: Randy's Condor has quite a long range on it :shock: . It might not be safe to post the results :D . And yes - I know at the next meet I am going to be in real trouble . Walter was so close to kicking me with the AT44 . Randy's big pellet's [ .25 cal. ] saved me as well . Dave just got his scope mounted and did not have time to sight it in properly .
:shock: I think my luck will run out at the next meet :shock:

Brian

Brian[/quote]

Hey Brian, You shot really well, matey. I think it was Jack Nicholaus that said during an interview. The Interviewer siad to Jack that he was really lucky at the 16th hole. Nicholaus said " yes, i sure was lucky, but it seems that the more I practice, the Luckier i get"

Mini Rocker is the one we need to keep an eye on. He is really improving now.

Dave :D
