Bayou Airgun Club Benchrest Match Results 2.2.19
Thank you strever!
We're just getting started with benchrest, as this was only our 3rd match, but now all 12 of our lanes have benches and target stands, and our club members know what to expect, so we are ready to crank it up a notch.
That 4th picture shows you some of the toys we play with at our pistol and benchrest matches the first Saturday of every month. The black 6-space target rack (we have 7) to the left holds our 10 meter pistol targets, at the moment doubling as a wind flag with a ribbon on it, the 4 yellow banks of animal silhouette targets (we have 12) at pistol distances, and of course our white benchrest targets out at 25 meters. We start the day at 8:30 shooting our pistol match, then begin benchrest at 10:30 which takes less than 2 hours, so we're out of there by 12:30 to enjoy the rest of the day. The open field to the left is our field target practice range, and the woods beyond and to the right contain our Lagniappe and Belle Terre field target courses. We also have about a 400 square foot club house to store equipment, a covered picnic pavilion, restrooms, and parking under the oak trees, all fenced in with a keyed padlock that only members have a key to. We are very thankful every day that our park commission, BREC, has built this facility and maintains it for us.
