Field Target, Concord CA Sunday April 15th
We will hold the match at the USI Action Pistol Range, where it is normally held, this Sunday at 9:00 AM.
Those with a strong back and a devious mind are invited to assist in setting up the course, around 8:15 am.
We've increased the number of targets, number of forced positions and distances.
We're continuing our - "Predict your Score" fun match. Shooters who want to participate forecast their score before the match. The shooter who lands closest to "his/her/undeclared" score at the end of the Field Target season will win some nice prices. Shoot off for a tie.
Weather is predicted to be sunny with highs around 63 degrees and 8 mph winds. There will be bottled water supplied.
Rifles & Pistols are strictly limited to 20 fpe. .177/.20/.22 caliber with lead pellets only.
We have PCP (Open) and Spring divisions, WFTF, Hunter and Pistol.
Hunter classes may use buckets and sticks- scope power is limited to 16X or scopes dialed back to 16X for higher power scopes.
We shoot in squads of two and three. Eye protection is required for both shooters and spectators. Cost for club members is $10.00 and guests are $15.00. Juniors under 18 with a member are free.
I have a loaner PCP if someone wants to come out and give FT a try. Let me know via email ahead of time. We can partner you up with a veteran who will be sure to talk your ear off- hearing protection is optional.Ladies and juniors are encouraged to attend - this is a soft shooting, precision sport.
I like to call it kinetic yoga- breathing, focusing and mental awareness pays dividends!
There will be free air tank refills after the match for club members tanks with a current hydro.
All shooters must sign the 1 time USI liability waiver form located on line here prior to shooting a match at USI:
It is free, signed online and is a one time procedure.
After signing the waiver, all shooters are required to obtain a USI "Blue Card" available for free at the club house.You must have your Blue card with you. Get one at the club house before the match. USI is now charging a $5.00 replacement fee. I suggest you take a picture of it and store it in your mobile device. We will be checking for Blue Cards- again, no charge, but it must be in your possession.
All FT and Air Gun Silhouette events are listed on the Diablo Rod and Gun Club calendar here:
