Rifle Marksmanship

Tuesday morning at 9:00 am we explain the NRA Rifle Marksmanship program, which is similar to the pistol marksmanship we shot last season.

The rifle marksmanship is .22 rimfire rifle, shooting at 50 yards, at paper targets, from a bench rest position. THIS IS NOT A CONTEST. You shoot targets at your own pace over several days or weeks.

When completed, you receive NRA Marksmanship awards and badges.

THANK YOU TO OUR SHOOTERS who pick up their brass. You do an excellent job.
However, our guests and evening visitors (Border Patrol) do not pick up their brass. We are going to put up signs to remind them.

Thanks to Gary, Tony, Bonnie, Chris, and Mark for painting this morning.
Thanks to Eric Skinner for donating two buckets of paint.

Tony rolled a tan primer on the roof. Bonnie and Mark rolled white on the inside. Gary, Chris, and I rolled gray primer on the outside.

Targets and steel will be locked inside Mabel. Shotgun clays and the thrower will be inside.
The padlock door code is "2500" on all the padlocks.

The loan balance on Mabel is down to $800. Thank you for the donations.

Mabel Update

Neto and his crew stopped this afternoon to level the south end of the storage container.
It took them nearly 10 minutes. Thanks, Neto.

Tony and I primed the east side of Mabel this afternoon. Working in the shade, with a good breeze, it was actually nice.

Tony wants to put primer of the roof Saturday morning. The rest of the crew will prime the south and west side. About 2 hours of work.
If you can help paint tomorrow, come down at 8:30 or 9:00. We are using 3" rollers and brushes.

Gun range maintenance

Thursday morning we are going to shoot "Know your limits" (KYL) steel with rimfire rifles. This is the first KYL shoot so come on down with your rifle.
We will have two classes:
Base - stock rifle
Open - sky is the limit

At 10:30, for one hour only, we will steel brush the flaked paint on the shipping container. Bonnie says that calling it a shipping container is boring. She wants to call the steel container "Mabel". So tomorrow we need volunteers to brush Mabel for just one hour.

Friday afternoon at 1:00 pm we need volunteers to paint Mabel. We will roll on a primer coat of enamel.

We also need to pay $2050 for purchasing Mabel. I prefer to not use general gun range funds. I think we can pay off Mabel with special contributions. 2 people have donated $250 each. 3 people have donated $100 each. Dortha's mug sales have donated $100. $900 down, $1150 to go.
You can give your contribution to Mark Hall, who did all the leg work, Bonnie, or myself.
Thank you in advance.

Thank you to Mark Hall and John de Leon for building 4 new rifle target stands.

Shoot safe,

.22 rifle shoots

Thursday morning at 9:00 am we are going to shoot Know Your Limits (KYL) steel with .22 rimfire rifles. This will be the first KYL match of the year. The range is 25 yards.
The steel target size is 2" down to 1/4 inch.
This is a contest.

Tuesday, Dec 5, we start the NRA Marksmanship program for .22 rifles.
This is NOT a contest. You will shoot targets at 50 yards to improve your rifle shooting proficiency.  This is similar to the pistol marksmanship we did last winter.
At 9:00 am, we will explain the program and shoot some targets. You will shoot 27 sheets of targets at your own pace and convenience.
