Boom! Whack! Clang!
Oh, the beautiful sounds of shooting metallic silhouettes.
Boom, from the gun firing. Whack, from the bullet hitting the steel target. Clang, from the target falling down.
Add to this music the camaraderie of fellow shooters, and what more could you want for a Saturday's enjoyment?
Pistol silhouette shooting at HCRPC is all about having FUN !!
The large, easy to hit targets are set at known distances: chickens at 40 meters, pigs at 50, turkeys at 75, rams at 100 meters. Two sizes of targets are available: 50%-scale for cowboy rifles and hunter's pistols, and 38%-scale for smallbore pistols (100%-scale is rifle targets shot at up to 500 meters). We have converted all the targets to manual resets, reducing the work required during a match: after you knock them down, you just pull a rope and the animals rise up to be shot again.
So come out on the second Saturday of each month and have some shooting fun.
