Re: Georgia Smallbore Silhouette State Championship Tournament

Other things to expect are the Texas state match and the Iron man in Montana that same weekend drawing some of the shooters who will travel a distance.

Re: Georgia Smallbore Silhouette State Championship Tournament

What you can expect on the first weekend of June 2020 in Rutherfordton, N.C. is high heat and high humidity that Asheville will never have. Lodging in June can also be a problem because of weddings and the people who take their family vacation as soon as school is out. Matches in April and early May...

Re: Georgia Smallbore Silhouette State Championship Tournament

This match is still over 9 weeks away from today. That is still a significant period of time for entries to come in.
Personally, we would consider making this match but it follows Ridgway too closely to make another long drive that soon.

Re: First Air Rifle Silhouette Match at ARPC

Shootingstar, the Daisy 887 is a Target Air Rifle that would also fit the Open Air Rifle Silhouette rules. The 887 does not meet the spirit and intent of Rule 3.3(b) as in precharged cylinder holding more than 12 grams of CO2 and the propulsion mechanism is not a spring. It does not matter what desi...

Re: Weaver Scopes are History !

I just received a e-mail from Cheryl at targetshhooteroptics. Cheryl says they cannot repair the modern Weavers with the aluminum tubes that were made in Japan but can change the reticles. She said they can still repair and blueprint the steel El Paso Weaver.

Re: Where is the justice?

Was that a hit on the right part of the stand?
Is bullet splatter what turned it?

Re: Iron Man Results

David, to ask a person working for a manufacturer a direct question like that would not be good etiquette. It would be crude and disrespectful. I thought RickF or somebody else might have some insight since he mentioned it. Maybe they have sponsored silhouette competitors in Canada that we do not ha...

Re: Isn’t it a great feeling when......

I guess I did not really answer the question. Long storage periods, heat and cold cycles cause most rimfire lube to age prematurely. Depending on which manufacturer and which lube, it becomes very thick and cakey. The priming compound and powder attract moisture over a period of time or under poor s...

Re: Isn’t it a great feeling when......

My personal storage goals for both ammo and optics: 1. Always less than 80 degree temperature. Ultimate goal is really 78 degrees or less. 2. Never below 32 degrees. Never freezing. Ultimately goal is above 40 degrees. 3. Never in direct sunlight, even sunlight through a window. Ultimate goal is dar...

Re: NRA casification cards

When the boy cries wolf so many times, he is ignored. Same with cards.
The folks running matches find out which classifications you are in when you fill out the entry forms.

Re: NRA casification cards

Jerry, this is only a guess. NRA has no mechanism in place to know that you already had a classification in that discipline. You shot a match where the scores were reported correctly and they sent you a classification card based on those scores like you had never shot before. Scores which were in a ...

Re: 2019 SB/HP Nationals

So I clicked on the excellent Ridgway Rifle Club website and there was Harold's correct e-mail address.
It is harjf75("at")gmail.com
One digit off. Problem solved.
