We can start setting up at 9:00, do some sighting in and try to start the 'match' around 10:30. 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.
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. If you want to do sighting in please bring along a carton with targets attached.
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. THOSE WHO CANNOT SAFELY HANDLE FIREARMS WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.
- 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.
- it’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 there, and my father is going to come along too.
I've also invited a friend, I'll see if he is still interested.

Thanks again to Dave for organizing this, and Todd for having us on his land!

Looks like my friend and father who planned to join me aren't going to be able to make it. Oh well, I'll still be there. Hopefully I do better than last time!!

we had a blast, well I had a blast. I did not have time to ajust my scope on my Baikal and it was not shooting coreclty so Dave lent me his, wow what a nice airgun that Hammerli AR20 is, it's set up for a right hand and I was shooting it lefty and still manage to tie for 4th place, I'm happy with my score.

got a Sun burn on my head and my arms, I usaly bring a hat but I forgot it at home with my targets this time.

so next time I will have my own airgun and watch out Dave I will do My best to beat you this time.

Well... I think I have an addiction now.
Just ordered a HW77K Special Edition .177 Non-PAL.
Image

After trying Dave's HW97, I knew I needed to have one. The 77 is pretty much the same thing, aside from the cheek piece which isn't a huge deal for me.
I went with non-PAL, because I'm impatient... it would probably be close to a year before I got it!

We'll see you at the next shoot :)
