Special FT Match, Dec. 15th at Diablo Rod and Gun Club - FT Pistol Orientated
Dec 15th, 8:30 am setup, 9:00 am start (after the Safety briefing).
Location: United Sportsman Range, Concord Ca.
Shooting at the Action Pistol Range, the area is a bit muddy.
Maybe even a little bit more than just “muddy”.
You may lose a boot- or a small child if one is with you. But.. we are holding the match either way.
This is a special course, designed for Pistol FT, but rifles are welcome. Max distance will be 45 yards, and KZ’s larger than normal (bigger than a pinhole). If ever you wanted to try out your springer, pistol, CO2 or sub 12 ft/lb gun, this match should challenge and reward you.
All .22 cal and lower, sub 20 ft/lb’s energy guns welcomed, but for those frustrated pistol and springer shooters- this match should satisfy.
$10 Members, $15 Guests.
Youth accompanied by an adult can shoot for free and there is a club loaner rifle available, with advanced notice.
Eye protection required; Pellet guns only, please do not uncase your gun(s) until the safety briefing.
Rumor has it that Santa Claus may be on hand to fill up Club members air tanks for free (!)
What a nice day- very calm, a bright winters sun, and 8 shooters. Like the TV show- 8 was enough. Enough to have fun and share some stories, Christmas snacks and a fun snowball fight.
Minus the snowballs. Or fight. But fun, that we did have!
Here are the guys looking for the targets- the mud was deeper than we thought. Eventually, we uncovered them.
But how about the scores? We put out larger targets, and everyone found a way to compete that was satisfactory for them- Offhand, pistol, spring gun and just plain sit-in-the-mud and shoot. 52 Possible, but three shooters had a shorter match, with 46 possible. (We rolled up the lane a little early, apologies to you!)
And smiles- there were lot's of smiles. We are going to do this again in February (regular match in January, big targets for pistols in February), so mark your calendars: 3rd Sunday of every month, Field Target in Concord, Ca.
