It's time to start thinking about the 2018 season at "da Range".
Last season, we shot the NRA Marksmanship course for pistols. 17 shooters qualified as Distinguished Expert. This season you can continue where you left off last year, or you can start the course from the beginning. Experience taught us that small calibers with good sights worked better than big calibers, and short barrelled carry guns were difficult to shoot with consistent accuracy.
The NRA has a similar Marksmanship program for rifles. Based on our pistol experience, I am thinking a .22 rimfire with a good scope might work best. Look for this program to start about the first of the year.
Bonnie is excited about a new group of rifle shooters called the National Rifle League - 22. They shoot .22 rimfire at small targets out to 100 yards. NRL22 is precision long range shooting on a rimfire budget. Bonnie is working at getting pur range listed as a NRL22 club so our shooters can ne listed in the points standings.
Bring your .22 rifles with you when you come south.
Shotgun will be similar to last year.
Yes, we will be shooting lots of steel.
So much shooting to do, so little time. Good thing we are retired.
Your current range passes are good thru November. We have new, magnetic name tags for this season. These tags won't blow around in the wind.
