Hopefully the mild and the dry weather will hold for Sunday. We can start setting up at 9:00, do some sighting in and try to start the 'match' around 10:00. We'll be there at least 2-3 hours. Please RSVP if you plan on attending. Also please read the safety rules at the bottom of this email.
We should have about 25 real field targets on hand for this next shoot. I bought the last of the discounted AirArms targets that AirgunSource.com was selling and still have a couple left. If you would like some of them, I have a few available for $42 each (includes taxes and shipping).
In addition to your gun and pellets please bring along a pen, clipboard and something to sit on (cushion or pad, not a chair) for the many seated shots.
There will be a couple of airguns that people can borrow, and there will be a couple of 'real' FT rifles for people to check out.
If you are bringing a PAL gun with you, remember your firearms licence.
I have added yet a few more hopefully helpful links to the page at http://www.firearmstraining.ca/ft.html
The new location is about six minutes south of the Limoges exit on the 417. This is at the large acreage (open farm land with lots of wind to keep bugs away) of one the local airgun shooters. Email me for a map link.

GENERAL GUN HANDLING SAFETY
- NEVER point your gun at anyone and ALWAYS treat your gun as being loaded at ALL times.
- ALWAYS be aware of where your muzzle is pointing, if you have difficulty getting up from a prone shot without waving your gun around, please ask another member of your group to help you.
- If you have a magazine fed rifle, please remove the magazine between shooting pegs/lanes.
- If you have a Break Barrel rifle, please break the barrel to show it’s safe. Similarly if you have an underlever rifle, please crack the underlever while carrying the gun.
- Please do NOT rest your muzzle on your foot and please don’t carry your gun using the scope as a carry handle.
- Please do not load your rifle or even look through the scope ANYWHERE except across a designated firing line – that means the Zero Range OR the Course and nowhere else.
- Most importantly, if you see someone being unsafe, politely point it out to them.
- While you’re shooting the course, we operate a BUDDY MARSHALLING system. That means that everyone on the course is a safety marshal, not just the people wandering around with florescent jackets on.
I- t’s YOUR responsibility to make sure that everyone in your group stays safe.
- If you’re in ANY doubt at all, please ask one of the roving Marshals.
STOPPAGES
- If you hear a SINGLE blast on a whistle or air horn it means CEASE FIRE immediately. If you have a loaded gun, please point it at soft ground across the firing line and discharge it safely into the ground.
- Remember, We’re ALL responsible for safety, so please make sure that everyone in your group is aware of a cease fire and that the groups to your left and right are also aware.
- While a cease fire is on, please DO NOT look through your scope or shoulder your rifle for ANY reason.
- Two blasts of a whistle or horn mean that it’s safe to continue – Again, make sure everyone in your group and in the groups around you are aware of this.
- DO NOT Under any circumstances cross a firing line – if there is a problem, find a roving marshal and tell them what the problem is, they’ll be happy to help you.
- If you’re a spectator, please have consideration for those shooting the competition, and please do not approach or distract shooters while they’re taking a shot.

I'll be attending. Looking forward to my first experience with FT. Girlfriend might tag along as well.
Anything else I should bring that is not listed, but might be handy to have?

Anyone in that area should make a real effort to make it to this event. Experiencing one of these days is the only way to really understand how great a day you will have. Even if you do not have a gun to take, get there to see what it is all about. The best payback you can give to this event organizer is to attend.

I hope you all have an amazing day.

Tim

Will there also be a pistol match? As a beginner I would like to practice both rifle and pistol shooting.

Also, if anyone is bringing a HW98 I'd love to try it out if you don't mind. I am considering this as my next purchase and would really like to get a feel for it. It would be much appreciated!

If it's like the usual, it should be a rifle match but I'm showing up with my Alecto like last Fall. I love the challenge of the longer distances (25 yards and more). If you shoot with a pistol, we could team up as most of the guys will shoot rifles only.

I will be there. Frank said he could help me out with a gun for that day so I can give FT a try and see what its all about.
I will be taking my CFSC on June 1st, 2nd and 3rd and hope to have my Pal by fall sometime to purchase a PCP Rifle.
I look forward to seeing as many guns as possible Saturday to give me an idea of what I will buy when I get my Pal.
