Good day at Wallops Sunday, we had 6 guests from TAL in Christchurch shooting with us, on a lovely HRS rules course set out by our very own Mike Seagrave and Steve Lucas.
Top score was Vinnie as usual with a 58, but all of the other 18 shooters gave a good account of themselves, and the TAL guys came with in some extremely respectable scores on what was their first ever HFT shoot. ... See MoreSee Less
It was a great course and we had a lot of fun! When we round up our deploreables over the next few weekends we'll see what we can do about getting a regular team across (and some practice of course) 😀

A big thanks goes out to the 17 MVAC members who turned out in the sweltering heat this morning to blitz the outdoor range.😎
A special mention goes to the "stump team" who poured their blood sweat and tears into demolished that %$#ing stump siting right on the firing line!
Sparky Stu, Aly and "Super Mario" Paul Knight were all amazing, and with everyone's help we broke the back of it by the afternoon.
So Its just the firing-line lean-to shed do next with some outside lighting and that's it, our 55 yard our door range will be ready to go.👍
Please Note : can we ask all members to not use the new range until it's finished, if you need to shoot 40, 45 yards please do it in the old spot round the corner until the range is officially open and secure. ... See MoreSee Less
