Our next shoot will be Saturday, October 13 and after the match we'll hit a sports bar in Embrun for what may be an end of season lunch and drink. If you haven't been out to a shoot yet and don't have a rifle, come out anyway and borrow a gun.

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 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 60 shots 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 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.
- 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.

The forecast looks decent for Saturday! :)

It looks like we'll have several novices out for the first time. I'll have a couple of extra rifles but it would be good if some others are ready to share/coach as well.

How many more shoots (if any) we have this year will depend on the weather. Last year we were luck and went until late November. Let's keep our fingers crossed...

another excellent match with a great turn out and several new faces! The wind was fierce and it was incredible tgo see what a dramatic effect it had on those itty-bitty pellets.
dhb will post the scores later but it goes without saying that Stacey once again led the "pants......I don't need no stinking pants" division (he shoots in a kilt so we don't let him go prone). I think I'm even motivated to practice a bit this winter....................

well after all I showed up. thanks John.

I did not want to go since my Benjamin pump let me go and I need to pump my disco at every 28 shots so there was no way I could do a FT comp with it.
but I took my QB79 that I had not pick up in over 6 weeks and give it a try, this QB79 is a better shoot then me, mana to get me a 3rd position maybe if I had
ajusted the scope would have done even better,

now I'm going pump hunting or seal kit hunting.

We set a record!! We had 14 competitors out to brave the gusting side winds. This is the first time we've had more than a dozen competitors. We did learn that Mr. Wind is not our friend! Many shooters had about a dozen more misses than in the calm but damp conditions of last month. About 90% of the misses were to the left as people weren't accustomed to holding off for the wind. The odd miss to the right was the result of the wind dropping just as shots would break. It was good to see some more people making the trek from Montreal.

Scores are out of 60.

We may do another match the second weekend in November, if the weather cooperates.

I agree, with all the pumping he was doing I was sure he'd have multiple strokes!!!!!!

I'll try to post some photos soon!

That wind really was tricky, not to mention the further distances of the targets this time around.

In preparation for recognizing the official classes next year I just spent a couple of hours fine tuning my AR20FT's velocity (which proved to take much more time than it should have) so I'm now just under the 12 ft-lb limit for WFTF. I just had to share that as I'm sure BJP has been losing sleep over my 30 extra FPS! ;)

Looking forward to Bowser's pics - mine always have the quality one finds in an 'up skirt' forum!
