Smallbore F-Class:

The NRA has sanctioned an F Class Rifle category for Small Bore Prone. Rules for the equipment can be found in section 3.1.1 Small Bore F Class Rigle of the NRA Small BOre Rule Book. http://compete.nra.org/documents/pdf/compete/RuleBooks/SBR/sbr-book.pdf. Basically, in the target class, you shoot on the ground using a bi pod or other rest for front support and various devices for butt support. You can shoot irons or scope. The club has purchased the correct F class targets for 50 yards and 100 yards and anyone wishing to shoot F Class can shoot along the Small Bore prone shoots at the regularly scheduled matches, second Saturday of the month. The course of fire will require 120 rounds for record and you will shoot 60 rounds at 50 yards, and 60 rounds at 100 yeards. For more information contact the Small Bore Chairman, 246-837-6474 Brian Hunter.

Arrival, Parking and Entering Larry's: We have been asked to drive around the left side of the store and park behind the main store building (there is a dumpster in this area) near the back door. The parking area is lighted. After store is closed the range master will unlock the back door and let B&G shooters into the range thru that door. It is recommend shooters have B&G membership card or badge and can be admitted individually. Shooters should arrive between 6:00-6:15 and congregate in the area mentioned above to enter as group after the public shooters have been cleared from the range.
NOTE: As the purpose of these pistol matches is to have some fun, and competition, we encourage members who have never fired a match, but are interested, to come out. Do not worry about not having a match pistol or other competition equipment. Bring whatever (in safe operating condition) .22 pistol, at least 100 rounds of ammunition,something to write with, ear and eye protection. You must shoot the match if you want to shoot, even if empty points are available, since people just shooting for fun would be a distraction. We are still working out the details, but we want members to have fun. NRA conventional pistol competition consists of firing slow, timed, and rapid fire. This is done at 50 and 25 yards outdoors and almost exclusively at 50 feet indoors. Generally an outdoor match will consist of 20 shots, slow fire at 50 yards (2 10-shot strings, 10 minutes per string), 20 shots, timed fire at 25 yards (4 5-shot strings, 20 seconds per string), 20 shots, rapid fire at 25 yards (4 5-shot strings, 10 seconds per string), and the National Match Course (10-shots, slow fire at 50 yards, 10-shots timed fire, and 10-shots rapid fire). This match consists of 90-shots for a possible aggregate total of 900 points. For additional information about Bullseye pistol matches visit:John Dreyer's Bullseye Pistol Website

B&G Smallbore Prone Match 5-9-15:

Jimmie Fordham was our Match Winner shooting an excellent score of 1191-64X with irons. I know Jimmie has been working on irons, and his excellent scores show it. Today was a little hot for May, but otherwise good shooting weather. Hope to see everyone next month, for the next match is 13 June, then we take a long break till Oct. The retro match will be fired 10 Oct, so drag out your Kimbers, M52's, etc. Brian W. Hunter.

B&G Smallbore Match 6-13-15:

I want to thank everyone for showing up and shooting. It was hot, my truck said it was 88F when I left the range. We had the most ever F class shooters today, which is wonderful; it may look easy, but getting a ten on that tiny metric target is very difficult! Match pictures are attached as a zip file. Congratulations to Jimmie Fordham for being match winner. Jimmie shot a very good score of 1195-86x's. I shot an iron sight high for me, and I won high irons. October is a long way off, but that is the next match and it will be the Retro Rifle match. Anyone can shoot any rifle, but I am going to give a trophy plague out to the high shooter who shoots a vintage rifle. Kimbers, M37's, M52's, BSA rifles, etc are vintage rifles. I have a H&R M12 and I may shoot that. If I can find someone to get the grill going and set up, I would like to have a cookout over in the TVA area after the match. There are nice barbeque grills, running water, a view of the river, and the weather should be nice. This is a work in progress. Brian W. Hunter.
