Two rifle competitions were held on the range today , as is usual on the first Sunday of each month. Conditions were good with sunshine and a mild breeze which did change direction frequently causing the loss of a point from time to time. Format was the NASRPC 50 metre Field Sporter, for scoped rifles weighing under 10.5 lbs, all in. This is shot in the prone position, rested front and back. Two cards are shot with unlimited sighters and 20 shots on each card to count, giving a maximum possible score of 400. As can be seen from the scores in Table 1 below, two experts and a beginner took part with a close place for first place. Fair play to Arnie for stepping up to the mark and I expect to see his scores improve as he gets more experience.
The second competition was the 50 Metre Gallery Rifle precision format, shot in the standing position in in 4 relays of 5 minutes each. The first relay is unlimited sighters. The next 3 relays are 10 shots each, giving a maximum possible score of 300.This was a closely fought contest with only 3 points separating the first 3 positions.
