It's starting to look like spring! The ground should be drying out by the end of April.

Would people be interested in trying out an additional match beyond our usual 60 shot one? I was thinking of having a 40 shot pistol and sub-500FPS rifle match after the main rifle shoot. Does that sound like fun?

Looking forward to the 60 shot match. I am itching to take my new to me Diana 54 out. To date I have only put 2 rounds through it!

It needs to be put through the chronograph with the pellets I purchased.

See everyone there.

Our first shoot of 2013 will be Sunday, April 28th, assuming the ground is dry enough. I will send out confirmation a few days prior to the 28th if the field is ready. 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 8:30, do some sighting in and try to start the match by 10:00. After the main match we'll do a 40 shot sub-500fps rifle and pistol match with closer targets for anyone who's interested. Please read the safety rules at the bottom of this email.

We will have have 10 lanes with a total of 60 shots and we will toss in a standing and a kneeling lane for the main match. 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.

MATCH POSTPONED

Here's the response I got yesterday regarding how the ground conditions are at the shoot location:

Hi Dave - its really bad - you cant even walk on the grass without getting a soaker

There is a strip about 15 feet wide on the crown that's dry - the rest is mush

Walking on the sides will only make it worse

I think we should postpone for 2 weeks- should be good by then.


So, let's aim for May 11, (it's the Saturday - to avoid Mother's Day). On the bright side we all have two more weeks for practice!
