Tucson Rifle Club

Post by hermit5 » Mon Feb 19, 2018 3:38 am

Thanks to TRC for allowing me to shoot their monthly 60 shot SB match.
I can’t remember half the shooters names and the other half I cannot pronounce.
It was a great pleasure to shoot with Morgan A. a new shooter from Wisconsin I believe or was it Minnesota?Anyways he did very well at the toughest game in silhouette.
The Tucson range was another check on the bucket list of silhouette ranges shot at.I regret not giving them a “Traveling Round” plaque from Ridgway Rifle Club.
This was my first SB match since 2011 and it showed.Lever action matches seem to fill up the schedule these days.
Thanks TRC for sharing your hospitality and warm climate.

Do they still have the exploding chicken targets?

The exploders were pigs and then switched to rams. Finding the explosives is getting harder to find all the time so the exploders are getting fewer and farther apart. It was fun while it lasted. Some of the pots were over $100 when they switched to the rams.

I shot there for a couple of years - never saw any target explode. Hope the Rams do better.
