Get out your long johns and come out to our match on Dec. 2. We’ll start set up at around 900 and shooting at 1000. Tony, Rex, and some other hardy souls will probably be there earlier so help is appreciated. Our last match started cooooold, but by mid-day we were working in shirts. We also had a propane radiant heater to warm hands and it worked great, thanks to Eb Downey. (Eb, now you have to make the next match, we need that heater.)
If you have a Pistol Caliber Carbine bring it and if you don’t you are welcome to use the mine and Tony’s and probably anybody else who brings one. Bring factory ammo (9MM, any weight) for borrowed guns or agree if you blow it up with your reloads you bought it. We will even consider lost cowboys who want to use their lever guns but no single actions Army’s. Gotta have a modern gun (except for 1911’s) for action shooting.
I want to remind everybody that all rifles firing rifle rounds (including .223 or 5.56) must be used on the rifle range only. Pistol Caliber Carbines (PCC) firing pistol rounds must go to the rifle range unless it is during a Match or Action Practice session on the third Wed. of every month from 1000-1300 and under the supervision of a Match Director or an IW, RSO. Rifle range rules apply and have always stated that pistols firing rifle rounds are used on the Rifle range. The newfangled pistols that look like a rifle with the stock removed and bang you in the face every time you pull the trigger are pistols firing a rifle round and therefore always go to the rifle range. SBR’s are rifles with short barrels and fire rifle rounds so always go to the rifle range. If you have any questions about this policy, and I didn’t make it up, you can contact me or Tony, or George Venable. If you see something, say something, or at the very least ask a question. It is all our responsibilities to make sure the safety protocols are followed by our fellow shooters. If you have a PCC and want to run and gun it, come and join us at a match or practice which, as you probably know, requires that the shooter qualify. (Contact me for more information on qualification.)
Attached are documents for you to read, and you sign off on, when you sign in to the event. There are a few changes you should check out, usually in RED.
It takes a real man or woman (or an idiot) to shoot in this weather but the bad guys don’t always wait for summer. If it is raining or snowing in Forest when I get up there is a good chance of cancellation. I know you all think I’m a weak-kneed Yankee but I’ll be 75 in January and I ain’t shooting in the rain or snow. Check your email before 0800 for cancellations.
Co-Match Director Action Pistol
