We will 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 will have some more targets so we'll have 10 lanes with a total of 30 field targets on hand for this shoot and we will toss in a standing and a kneeling lane. If you're bringing targets, please have them freshly painted.
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. If you cut a couple of holes in the carton on one side near the bottom, you can run a string through the holes and then pull the target closer to you to check your elevation settings without needing a cease fire for everyone.
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 east of the Limoges exit on the 417 or south west of the Casselman exit. 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.

dhb: will you be shooting in Open class for this match or will you still be using the old "my-gun-is-too-powerful-for-WTFT-class-but-I'm-not-telling-anyone-and-since-I'm-the-match-director-there-won't-be-a-chronograph-anyways" approach?

It looks like I'm going to be finding out how to adjust the power level in my AR20FT... :(

BJP, your Falcon scope will be the one that looks like it was stepped on!

I've been getting ready - painting targets, verifying the sight settings at all ranges (gotta love http://www.hawkeoptics.com/apps/chairgun-pro.html). I have a few new extra Gamo targets for $25 if you're in the market for some.

I'd be interested in one. Went to order one from Airgunsource (among other stuff), but they were "not currently available" :evil:
You bought them all up, didn't you? :P :lol:

I bought 14 from Pyramid Air and picked them up in the USA, so 'free' shipping. :D

I'll take 2 of the targets. It looks like it will just be myself, my friend got roped into helping someone move!

Nice stock - look forward to seeing it!

I've been busy playing with ChairGun Pro ballistics software and confirming that it's accurate with actual shooting. I'm sticking holdover/under data to the side of my scopes so I won't have to remember anymore. I want to be ready in case Brian resets his elevation knob this time!! ;)
