Bowman Classic 2018

The Bowman Classic

Charity Shoot   May 6th

Meon Valley Airgun Club along with the sponsors Bowman Ales have agreed that year’s event is to be held as a charity shoot in support of Help for Heroes.

Following on from the very successful format that MVAC have used, this year’s shoot will be another HFT & Tactical Gamble fun challenge with an HFT pistol shoot.

The date for this fantastic event (and one that should not be missed) is set for May 6th at MVAC Hen Woods site.

There will be a prize raffle draw and Help 4 Heroes goodies, so please bring plenty of money with you 😊

We will also have our wonderful burger van on site to make sure you don’t go hungry.

The format for the Charity shoot will be:

UKAHFT 20 pegs, 20 Targets
Tactical Gamble 25 pegs, 25 Targets


 The HFT part of the course is 20 pegs, 20 Target, 2018 UKAHFT rules apply

 (no that’s not a typo, yes only 20 targets 😊)
Scoring, 2 for a kill, 1 for a plate and 0 for a miss.

Tactical Gamble

The Tactical Gamble part of the course will consist of 25 pegs, 25 Target’s between 8 & 45 yards, shot either Standing or Kneeling.

Now just to make it a little more interesting there will be a bonus target of +10 points, this target will be ‘drawn out of the hat’ only when the competition has started.

Shots must be Standing or Kneeling Only. When you approach each lane and BEFORE you look through the scope you must decide/elect to shoot or not to shoot the target.

Scoring is:

Zero (0) Points for no shot fired (if you decided not to shoot that target)

Kneeling Shots
+ 2 Point for a Kill              – 2 Points for a plate or a miss

Standing Shots

+ 3 Point for a Kill            – 3 Points for a plate or a miss
