    Not sure what the gusts were that took out two of the 4' x 4' target holders, blew down the flags or carried a target holder cardboard over the 200 yard berm at the back of the range. Fortunately the shooter's target that was attached to that cardboard was dropped just shy of the 150 yard mark and recovered. They were interesting and challenging conditions but a good time was had by all. Come and join us next month when we start at 7 am. Conditions are often superb at that hour and fun to shoot.

    Steve,

    Those southern breezes, there's never a wind at BA, do make it hard for the bullet to catch up with the target board.

    When are you going to start a Factory class? I'll come!

    Bill,

    I offered to run factory class if any of the participants would police the rules. Lots of requests but no volunteers.

    Unlimited requires no policing, shoot whatever you want. We have a variety of contraptions from a rail gun to bi-pods. It is a fun shoot and great guys.

    Everyone is welcome.

    edit: Steve, the range and sanctioning body you have chosen is just fine. I'll see you in October for the State Match.
