2017 Southern Indiana Pellet Fling
« on: December 01, 2016, 11:59:05 PM »
The Southern Indiana Spring Pellet Fling, will be held  April 8, 2017. It is a fun shoot, bring your airguns and have fun. Everyone is welcome. There will be steel targets, paper targets, just about anything we can come up with to shoot at. The main shoot will be Sat. But the farm is open to airguns all weekend. I should not call it a farm. Just a large yard.
Ben, from Steelplinkers, said if enough interest was shown for a field target range he would furnish targets.
It cost nothing to shoot or camp. Bring food and drink. I might be able to come up with something to eat on site. But don't count on it.

It will be held at my farm;  "2900 west county road 750 south, Commiskey In. 47227". I have 56 acres to play on. There is plenty of room for primitive camping. Plenty of room to set up ranges. Between now and then post all the ideas and what you guys want to do. The only electric is at my house. But generators are welcome.

Mark your calanders, This will be the first airgun fun shoot around here. Lets make it a fun one. Tell your friends, and bring one with you.
Anyone that would like to help set up and help at the shoot let me know. Pm me here, post what you guys want to do, and who will come.
It is going to take place you might as well come.

Jimmy

Happy new year everyone. I hope everybody got at least one thing airgun related for Christmas.
I have be contacting airgun companies to see if any would sponsor the shoot in the form of door prizes. A couple have contacted me wanting more information. We can only hope.
Also working on gathering targets to shoot. Things to make it fun. I will keep posting on this thread as things progress. Anything you guys want to add please do. Get the word out.

It would be a great weekend to come down to the southern part of the state. We are going to have a good time. Bring your family, they may get the airgun bug. I am sure we can hook them up with a lot of shooting. Hope to see you in April.

Jimmy,

Lilly and I plan to be there.  We will be dragging our little camper.  We look forward to meeting the Indiana folks.  Is there anything we need to bring?

I also expect to have a few toys that would be open to relocation to new homes - for an adoption fee. :-)  ...at least I think I will...breaking up is hard to do....   :P

(I'm set up for Paypal.  ;D ;D ;D )

We are under 3 weeks till shoot time. I just checked I am going to need more pellets too. Better order some this week. As I said before, we are going to be shooting in my front yard. Don't worry it is a big front yard. 50+ acres. But I don't have a covered shooting range. So anyone with a popup sunshade that would not mind setting it up to shade the shooting line, bring it. Targets of any kind.
If you have things you would like to sale or trade, bring them.

Jimmy,

Lilly and I plan to be there.  We will be dragging our little camper.  We look forward to meeting the Indiana folks.  Is there anything we need to bring? 

BobH.

Just bring your airguns and pellets. Pack like you are going camping Boondock style. I got another pumper yesterday. A crosman 101. I have it shooting now, going to try and refinish it before the shoot. Not sure how that will work out for me. We will hang bottles on hooks out to about 30 yards and shoot holes in them all weekend. Now that sound like fun.

Awesome, I hope to make it from Cincinnati. I will get my scuba filled and order some pellets. I will have a used scuba tank or two with me to sell. I am switching over to CF and would love to ditch a few of these older tanks.

We hope you can make it too. I am sure just about everyone will have something they may like to part with. I hope everyone brings things to sale. That always makes for a fun time. If nothing else we get to look at all the good stuff.

I also expect to have a few toys that would be open to relocation to new homes - for an adoption fee. :-)  ...at least I think I will...breaking up is hard to do....   :P

I like that adoption fee thing. Do you mind if I use that some also. I have WIFI in the barn. It will reach out to the RC runway, but may not make it to the firing line. But you can patch in to it and setup shop.

You know he did say something about a can race when we were talking about the Daisy 853s. Do you think he may be setting me up for an old fashion airgun spankin?  He and Lilly have a lot more practice then I. But we will have the cans laying around to shoot at. Bring your tack driving pumper and maybe we can teach him a thing or two. ;)

Let me give you a hint - big caliber at a slow speed!   You don't want a gun that shoots through the can, and the bigger the caliber the more energy it passes to the can. Of the two, slow speed and shot placement win the game.  But you didn't hear that from me.  8)
Last year I did pretty well with a benji pumper on three strokes, but I let that one go. a .22 C02 pistol would rock.

I will also have some little army men if you want to set them out and snipe the evildoers.  If you prefer a safari hunt, or a dinosaur hunt, they are easy to pick up at the dollar store.  ;D

I see you have a 397p and a 853. Don't forget them I can see we are going to have a lot of fun with them just setting around shooting cans. I have a couple trash bags full of plastic pop bottles to shoot at. I like the way the pop and swing when hit with these pumpers.
