FT- Rifle and Pistol Sept 20th, Concord Ca Match Report

A great day at the range- good sun, light winds, and a good turnout of our favorite people. The smog abated and most of the targets cooperated.

There was the occasional missing rivet hole that made one wonder if the pellet was passing through instead of knocking the target down, but the odds of a .177 passing cleanly through a .10 hole is slim.

I'll be filling those holes, btw, just to keep the course fair for all.

The pistol match turned out to be the most fun for all. We moved some easy targets in, and left a couple challenge targets out on the course. Dennis shot his Izzy, a 420 fps pneumatic and was knocking them down at 35 yards with Crosman 7.9 grain pellets. Awesome stuff to watch.

A huge shout out to all who pitched in to setup, tear down and help running the match!
