Indoor Pistol:

Norm Robinson is going ahead with the indoor Pistol shoots at the Last Resort range.  The shoot is built around "Bullseye" shooting.  HOWEVER, no one is excluded.  The emphasis is on shooting for fun.  Contact Norm on broncoala@knology.net for more information.

Steel Targets:

Steel targets are not to be attached to the target frames as lead spatter erodes the wood supports and the hooks are being ruined.  Steel targets are to be self supporting.  Pepper poppers and heavy metal plates are acceptable. Be very careful with these targets - ricochets are common, and lead splatter from steel plates can be a serious hazard and is an aggravation to others.  Either put the steel targets on the backstop or elevate targets so any misses go into the backstop.  Steel pistol/rimfire targets are to be no closer than  25 yards (75 feet) away from the firing line .  Centerfire rifle targets are to be  no closer than the 100 yard berm.  Centerfire rifle FMJ’s, or armor piercing bullets are not to be used against steel targets because of the risk of return ricochets.  Rifles using full magnum pistol cartridges, such as the 44 Mag or 357 Mag, are to keep steel targets at the 100 yard range due to the violence of lead spatter.

Appleseed Shoot:

A successful "Appleseed" marksmanship training session was held the weekend of August 30/31, 2014.
