September FunShoot!

About 25 so far, confirms will start going out tomorrow.


This Months FunShoot is this Saturday Sept 28th.  

Consisting of 7 stages and just under 100 rounds minimum for score, I will be twisting 4 of Howard's stages from the action match. We will be heavy on steel, shooting some kind of foodstuffs, clays of some sort and a new game on pit 2.

As per FunShoot standard, this can be shot as a 1, 2 or 3 gun, using any combination of pistol, pistol caliber carbine and shotgun (or any of them alone, shotgun alone will be a bit limiting).  There will be an option for shotgunners to use about 5 slugs, but it is not mandatory for them.

Shooters can shoot standing in a box, running about, timed or untimed, for score or not for score.  Don't have but 50 rounds in stock?  Heck I don't care, just shoot at the targets you like.

The idea here is options and fun, shoot whatever and however you like, as long as you are safe and your assigned Range Officer approves. For those who need structure, it will be provided in stage instructions for scoring classes.

Fee is $15 ($5 for under 18), we will be registering at the stat shack between the 50 yd and 200 yd ranges beginning at 8, shooting by 9.

Preregister at yorksignup@gmail.com, and let me know what guns you plan on shooting (always flexible on shoot day). 

NEW SHOOTERS:  Please ID yourself when registering so I can make sure someone can show you the ropes, and please, be not afraid, we like noobies!

A Time Plus Scoring Quiz for your enjoyment

I sent this quiz to the FNH ROs today.  Some scoring problems you may encounter. I'll put the answers in the comments.

A. On stage 1 Competitor A only loads 4 slugs in his shotgun.  He fires all four at the first 3 slug targets to get the required hits on them.  When he gets to the 4th slug target he fires shot at it.  He does not load more slugs and never re-engages that slug target.  He finishes the stage with a raw time of 89.45.  What is the penalty if any for the target he never hit with slug, and what is the total time?

B. On stage 2 Competitor B finishes the stage with a raw time of 65.11.  All steel is down.  Upon checking the paper you find 3 of the targets have only one "C" hit each, and one of them has only one "D" hit.  What are the correct penalties and total time?

C. On stage 3 Competitor C engages on of the steel targets with shot and it turns 90 degrees but does not fall.  He re-engages it 3 more times but can't get it to fall.  He chooses to leave it and finishes the stage in 55.87 seconds.  What is the penalty if any, and the total time?

D. On stage 4 Competitor D chooses to lean beyond the fault line and use one of the hay bales for support while engaging the clays.  He gets all his hits and his raw time is 34.30 seconds.  What is the penalty if any, and total time?

E. On stage 5 Competitor E never shows up to shoot at all.  He does complete the rest of the match and has not been DQed.  What will his time for this stage be?

September Action Matches

On Sunday, September 8th we are going to host a 5 stage action match in the back pits, and a 4 stage action match up front at York Izaak Walton. There will be two time slots available for this match. We will finish setting up at 8:00 am and we appreciate your help. Registration for the morning time slot will be from 8:30 until 9:15. Mandatory match briefing will be at 9:20 and we will start shooting at 9:30. Registration for the afternoon time slot will be from 11:45 until 12:00. Mandatory match briefing will be at 11:55 and we will start shooting at 12:00pm. You will be able to shoot the front pits match in the AM and the back pits match in the PM, or vice versa. You may not shoot the same match twice.

There will be 2 options for the back pits action match:
1. You may shoot this match with Pistol only. A minimum of 120 rounds will be required. The cost will be $20.  To sign up for this option email us at yorksignup@gmail.com and tell us your name, "Pistol only", AM or PM, division, and anyone you would like to be squadded with.

2. You may shoot this 5 stage match with a rifle and a pistol as a multigun match. Minimums of 60 rifle and 60 pistol rounds will be required. We encourage the use of 22lr, or the standard 223/5.56, but anything semi-automatic will be allowed for the rifle portion as all rifle targets will be paper. The cost will be $20 for the back pits multi-gun match. To sign up for this option email us at yorksignup@gmail.com and tell us your name, "rifle/pistol multigun", AM or PM, division, and anyone you would like to be squadded with.

The front pit Multigun match:
Will require a shotgun and a pistol. You will not be able to shoot it with just a pistol because there will be targets that are inappropriate for a pistol. You also can't shoot with just a shotgun because of the there will be paper targets that must be engaged with a pistol.  Round counts are 50 pistol. 50 shot and 5 slugs required.  The fee for the front pit match will be $20. To sign up for this option email us at yorksignup@gmail.com and tell us your name, "shotgun/pistol multigun", AM or PM, division, and anyone you would like to be squadded with.

None of these matches will be for prizes.  All will be scored time plus and we will use the 2013 FNH rules with added pistol divisions for Production, Single Stack, L10 and Revolver.

If you are shooting both the front pits match, and back pits match, and don't really care what order you do it in you don't have to put any time slots down. It is actually beneficial to us for squadding if you don't.

This match will fill quickly. Do not hesitate to get signed up. You should receive a confirmation email from us within a day or two. If for some reason you have signed up but will not be able to make it to the match please let us know. Persistent no-shows will not be invited to shoot in the future.
