There's an increasing amount of target pistols appearing at Denwood so who's up for some friendly competition?
Nothing hyper serious, just some vaguely organised fun to improve our skills.
And we're looking to start this Wednesday (27/3/19.)
The first names are in - room for plenty more!
Rules aren't fixed and they're open to suggestions but, to get the ball rolling -
Pistols (.177) only, no shoulder/carbine stocks or suchlike.
Open sights, no lasers, red dots, etc.
Standing*, unsupported, one handed.
10 rounds over the course of 2019 - to be taken at the individual entrant's convenience on the 10m range.
Bisley 17 cm, 10m card targets. Two per round, five shots per target - total of 10 shots per round.
Official entries to be declared before shooting and witnessed - no shooting 20 targets and picking the best.
No retracting targets mid shoot to see where your shots landed - target goes fully out, five shots, target comes back.
Marking of targets to be "scored up" - shots breaking score rings get the higher score value.
Anyone think we need more/clearer rules than that? The idea is to keep things fairly simple, easy, consistent, convenient and free with entrants shooting one of their rounds when they fancy (max. one per week.)
Open to any .177 pistol, you don't need full-on Match kit to take part - skill outweighs equipment in pistol shooting so the likes of a Gamo/HW40/75/Beeman SSP is more than capable in the right hands.
Results will be displayed on the website in a League Table as they come in so we can track performance.
If this takes off, The Committee can probably be persuaded to stump up a decent trophy or two.
Contact Bri Munro if you're interested.
*Could make an exception to the Standing rule for Russ. If only so we don't have to pick him up all the time.
