Held this coming weekend in Grants Pass, Or. we wish Wayne B, Mark G, and Bob P. all the best and a big thank you from the Easton FTC.

we had a blast shooting together but only a total of 4 shooters including my self showed. the club is not getting the support as i anticipated. we need more shooters. if you are in the area and want to try out a fun and exciting game, come on out or give me a ring.
the pistol open sights class is a lot of fun. i used a crosman 1377 up against Scotts Marksman pistol. both cost under 50 dollars and are a complete hoot to shoot. Fred used his IZH, and for his 2nd match, kicked some serious booty. 1 point for a face plate hit and 2 points for a kill zone knock down. 25 shots or so and we shoot at the close target on the rifle course. as Jim and I shot rifle together, Scott and Fred took up there pistols on the new course. Fred had nudged out Scott by 2points on the last match so Scott paid him back this time with a 2 point lead in open sight class. great work Scott. better stay on your game cause i have a feeling we have another shooter with us and is gunna practice :)
Fred also has a crosman 2240 177 and a little scope. although he had just took delevery on it from the custom shop, he just walked away from Scott and I. lol. you are a shot Fred, and it is very nice having you on board. thanks for supporting your local club and thank you also for your contribution of 35 dollars for memnbership as this will get the club some things we need. i would like to give out hat pins in the future. perhaps we can all get together and plan or make designs on how we want the pins to look like.
Jim C showed up and brought a can of woop ass with him. lol. he burned up the new course shooting Hunter as if it were nothing and beating me by 2. Wow. we had a 58 yard, a55 yard, and a 51 yard target along with some severely elevated targets including a 43 yard 9 foot in the air shot, in which case Jim had no problem as his pellet smacked em down with authority. he has finally got his long game down and has become an amazing shot over the last year in f/t. congrats Jim on hitting your goal------40/48. nice work. if it were not for the rediculas 41 yard off hand shots i had on the course, you coulda woulda done better.i think we need to move that one in a little. lol.
thanks all for coming out and having some real fun.

last fun shoot we introduced a sub 6 fpe class standing open sights and shooters liked it. i think everyone owns a cheep pellet pistol. after talking it over a bit, it was decided to be 25 shots.it was a hoot on the new course. 1 shot for a face plate hit and 2 points for a kill zone hit.
for rifle, some elevated targets have been added and a great deal of time and preperation has been devoted on a better course. come on out and see and support air gunning and your local club, talk air guns, and meet new people. new shooters welcome.
