February WAIT!!! ITS JANUARY!!!! FunShoot!

Ok, so maybe this is why registration is slo, I mistakenly posted this as February's shoot, not January's! Funny thing is, only one of you told me, and it took me several days to see that, even after reading it!

THIS SATURDAY!!!  JANUARY 25TH!!!!


Welcome to the start of another exciting year for the FunShoot.  We have lots of fun planned, and a new idea or two to throw out, so stay tuned to this here Blog for all the grisly details.

So,  the first FunShoot for 2014, will be held this Saturday Jan 25th.  It will be a 5 stage shoot, held in the back pits only, comprising 3 or 4 stages from last weeks Action Match, and a couple of little twists that are still forming themselves inside my brain...........

This should be a fast moving shoot, as it will be mostly steel, for quick resets in the cold, and I am going to try to limit squad size to 8 shooters.

Round count will be under 100 rounds nominal, with the usual caveats, so bring more if you got 'em, less if you don't.
Scoring options will be Timed, Untimmed and IDC.  Shooting for score is totally optional.
Guns allowed are any standard caliber handgun, pistol caliber carbine or shotgun. Yes, .22lr is acceptable, in both handgun and carbine. If you are unsure if your toy qualifies, please email me.
All stages will be setup as 1 or 2 gun, you may bring all 3 if you like, but you may only shot 2 of the 3 on any particular stage, shooters choice of which 2.

Remember, this is an option filled fun day at the range, as long as you are safe, and tell your RO what you are up to, you can shoot the stages pretty much however you like.  For those in more of a competitive mindset, I will have specific stage descriptions to follow.

Since the forecast is for a bit of a chilly day, we will start registration at 10:15 and be shooting by 11am.
Registration will be in the back, $15/ shooter ($5 for under 18).  I expect to be clear of the ranges by 1:30pm or so.

To preregister (recommended,but not mandatory), email to yorksignup@gmail.com.

As always, safety is the prime directive.  New shooters check in with me before handling any gear, experienced shooters, helps the new folks.
