It is a modified "CMP-type" course of fire. I'm speeding it up a bit. 100 yards (our max range), using any military- style centerfire rifle, iron sights, shooting from field positions-prone, sitting, offhand. Use of a sling is allowed. 50 total shots fired. 20 shots prone/slow fire, 10 minutes. 10 shots prone, 70seconds, with a mandatory mag change. 10 shots offhand, 5 minutes. 10 shots sitting, 70 seconds with required mag change.

You will need some type of shooting mat, and a spotting scope will be allowed for the prone/slow fire course of fire, allowing for sight adjustment if needed. There will be a minimal charge for targets. $2 for club members, $4 for non-club members.

First date:June 18th. Sign-up starting at 9AM until 11AM.

Next shoot dates: July 30 and August 27.

Afterwards, there are a couple of decent places nearby for food, beer, and conversation, including one restaurant with a big deck overlooking Otisco Lake.

Goddamn penguin, there goes another clean monitor.....


Yes, 80 series FPs are a pain in the ass. Poor Doug. That is why I like my Springfields. At least no one knocked their plastic rear sights off last night, and all the ugly plastic guns made it home safe Although one guy with a Glock managed to cut the hell out of his strong hand...HTH did he manage that

Did your scars finally heal after your last close encounter with one?

The club is located N of Otisco Lake, town of Marcellus.

Maby someone with a Ballerina Molester will up-stage both the 1911's and the Grocks..
I sure would like to attend, just keep us posted.
Now that I've opened my mouth, I had better put some practice time in.

Hey, if you guys want to shoot your pistols at a 6" black circle at 100 yards for score in a RIFLE match, more power to you! The addition should be easy

Ahem, FP1201, "Molester?"
Link Posted: 2/24/2005 10:20:20 PM EDT
I did pretty well with my Springfield after about the 3rd run, still couldn't get it back in the holster though...
I did better with my IZZY FAL clone than the mousegun... Next time I might bring the secret weapon!

I almost took out the rest of the guys with the brass slinging outta the IZZY though, it was ejecting so well some made it on the tin roof abouve and 15feet to my right!

ICU, anytime you want to do another road trip, let me know! We had a great time with the Penguin & SP10.

GoodOrbit, Congrats on the new additin, got your E-mail today!

That's the nic-name someone applied to Ballester Molinas: "ballerina molester" some how sounds better than Bowl Movement
A fine weapon, a good shooter does not make.

Glenn, if you want to shoot the AR50 offhand 10 rds, and sitting 10 rds in 40 seconds, we'll give you a solo relay just to watch! (That and no one else will want to be on the line with the .50's muzzle blast!) PLUS, I'll pay your entry fee to help offset ammo $!

If you want to bring it down just to shoot afterwards, you are more than welcome! We occasionally shoot .50s at the club. Actually, we can do a "fun" shoot after the matches are all completed if folks want.

I have no idea how many guys are actually coming. A match will take roughly 20-25 minutes to complete, 4 shooters/relay.

BTT now that GATM3 is officially under wrap! 6 days and counting.

The penguin and I will doubtless resume our duel. After his excellent performance at GATM3, it could be tight. I'm betting he will be working on his rapid-prone this week!

Please post or IM me if you can attend.

Now that is almost true. I couldn't shoot for shit Friday night. Hot, hazy, humid; Fogging glasses, I couldn't see the target clearly with my NM sights to save my butt. Thankfully Saturday AM was better. I can't tell you how relieved I was to see my 1st shot nicely in the black after shotgun-like patterns the night before. I had a nice match and ended up with a decent score.

A father/son team who shoot a lot of CMP matches kicked my can. I tend to shoot fast and was checking out my fellow relays' targets. These guys had all 9s and 10s during the slow/prone. The only station I equalled or beat them was offhand.
