Sunday morning was overcast, dry and cold for our monthly gallery rifle and pistol shoot. Thirteen ECSC members turned up to compete in our new club competition format. The ECSC ‘Compendium’ shoot aired its first outing to great reviews from all who took part in it. Over the last year I have been asked by some of our pistol section members who shoot in the monthly pistol competitions to give them something different from the usual competition formats. Well, nothing could be more different than this morning’s competition which was very challenging, with the emphasis on time and marksmanship. The first target was set at the 10mts line and it was the 25mt precision rifle target with five appearances each of two seconds with intervals of five seconds, one shot to be fired at each appearance. Our second target was the pistol multi target at 25mts, ten shots in one minute with one reload of five rounds. Next up was the smallbore T&P1 rifle target at 20mts, five appearances each of two seconds with five second intervals between shots followed by the smallbore multi rifle target at 15mts, again five appearances each of two seconds with five second intervals between shots. The last target was the 10mts air rifle target with five appearances each of two seconds with five second intervals between shots. HPS being 300.030. We had sixteen entries across four disciplines. My thanks to Hugh D and Mark O’D for taking over as Ro’s, allowing me to shoot.
With eight entries in the small-bore pistol iron sighs (SBP) the honours went to Hugh D who stole the show for the second time, winning last month too. Congratulations to Hugh who managed to hit a nine, an eight and a one, on the air rifle target. I had an idea that target would be the deciding factor in this shoot and it was! Honours went to Rex C in the (OSBP) competition. ‘Well done, Rex’.

It was a great turn out to what was a very enjoyable competition and I wish to thank everyone who turned up to shoot. Our next competition shoot will be on the 30th January 2022 and it will be our new Compendium shoot again with first shots off at 10:00.
