Easter Sunday Field Target Shoot.
We will hold the match at the USI Action Pistol Range, where it is normally held, this Sunday at 9:00 AM Rain or Shine.
Weather is forecasted to be cloudy with possible rain later in the afternoon. I'm guessing from the weather reports at this point that we will wrap up the match before the rain comes in. If rain does seem likely, we have the option to move the match to the MPR and splash targets from a covered and dry position.
We will be running our typical 48 shot match with two targets/four shots standing. Rifles are strictly limited to 20 fpe and .177/.20/.22 caliber with lead pellets only.
We have PCP (Open) and Spring divisions and WFTF and even Pistol.
We shoot in squads of two and three. Eye protection is required for both shooters and spectators. Cost for club members is $10.00 and guests are $15.00.
Yes, new lower prices in effect since Diablo is helping with the USI usage fees. Another advantage of your Diablo Club membership.
Juniors under 18 with a member are now free. I have a loaner PCP if someone wants to come out and give FT a try. Let me know via email ahead of time.
Hunter classes may use buckets and sticks and scope power is limited to 12X and dialed back to 12X for variable power scopes.
Ladies and juniors are encouraged to attend to see and experience what the excitement is all about.
There will be free air tank refills after the match for tanks with a current hydro.
Bill Woodruff from Komptec Air Systems will be joining us and demonstrating his company's air compressor after the match which he tells me is similar to the Bauer Jr. we own. Those of you considering your own high capacity compressor or one for your club can watch the Komptec in action and ask questions. This is the same air compressor that Joe "Air Tanks For Sale" Brancato sells. Joe is a distributor.
All shooters must sign the USI liability waiver form located on line here prior to shooting a match at USI:
It is free, signed on line and is a one time procedure. After signing the waiver, all shooters are required to obtain a USI "Blue Card" available free at the club house. You must have your Blue card with you. Get one at the club house before the match. USI is now charging a $5.00 replacement fee. I suggest you take a picture of it and store it in your mobile device.
All FT and Air Gun Silhouette events are listed on the Diablo Rod and Gun Club calendar here:
Hope to see you there on Sunday.
