April 2019 Silhouette Report

‘a whole lot of the city shut down’ was a quote I heard last Saturday. Weatherpersons were right for once, got 2.5”.Sure glad setup was Friday, and sure appreciated the help from Mark Sternglanz.

Rain, yes. Yes it did, but shooters stayed dry (save for the soles of our boots) under the overhead.  Pull the reset ropes, shoot again. No Problem.

March 2019 Silhouette Report

Skeered of the forecasted rain, got the range setup Friday night. The line of thunderstorms had passed by match time, leaving bluebird skies, but many shooters reported waiting out or driving through rain, hail etc. to get here. Only had to endure a little (remember this is Texas) wind for the centerfire matches and wade the reappearance of the swamp/mud to paint and clean up.

One fun match shooter, one new shooter and one club member that got drafted to spot hits (and misses); interested enough to say he’d bring his own gun next month to try these half scale targets.

February 2019 Silhouette Report

Must have scared most of the shooters off with the mid-week weather report (29-44 degrees).

Heck, only 37 when we started, 37 with drizzle when we finished!

Eight hardy souls braved it all and it even took decent scores to win.

January 2019 Silhouette Report

Welcome the New Year!! First match of the year, old guard, new shooters, even one watcher.  All came out in the cold, wind and mud. Lots of wet and mud. Thanks to the diesel buggy we got all the targets placed, and to the resettable targets, we didn’t have to go downrange very often.
