Ten ECSC members turned up for our ‘Shooter of the Year’ gallery rifle and pistol competition and between them all we had twenty-two entries in five disciplines. It was one of the highest entries we have had in a long time. This morning’s competition was the challenging T&P1 with the HPS being 300.030. Shooters had to shoot twelve shots at the target from a distance of twenty-five metres in two minutes with one reload. After that they moved to the fifteen-metre line where they had to shoot another twelve shots. This time one shot in two seconds with five second intervals twelve times and each time returning their pistols to the forty-five-degree position between shots. Finally finishing up at the ten-metre line to shoot three strings of two shots in three seconds with five second intervals between each two shots. The weather was cold but bright to start off with but that soon changed with some light showers between the details. If that was not enough of an extra challenge on the shooters, we had what can only be described as a monsoon on the last two details. We had to break from shooting until the rain eased off. My sympathy to Paul F who got soaked to the bone and had no choice but to make a hasty retreat home afterwards. Once again, my thanks to Hugh D for running the shoot.
With twelve entries in the small-bore pistol open sighs (SBP) competition the honours went to Hugh D with six off a possible score. Emmanuel K took first place out of six in the OSBP. Congratulations and well-done to both Hugh and Emmanuel. Full results below.
I wish to thank everyone who turned up to shoot what was a very enjoyable competition, until the rain set in. Our next monthly competition shoot will be on 29th January 2023 with first shots off at 10:00.
