I don't shoot FT but still will attend just because it's so darned close to my home!

How close to Nevada are you Ken?

I'm about 30 minutes north of Nevada.

I think the July shoot will be set up for young/beginners. No reducers and closer shots. I was thinking about seeing if a group of us can shoot the course early with pistols (Beeman P17?) or pumpers for a friendly competition. I was planning to bring some youth sized rifles and help the kids during the shoot if needed.


Hope to see you there!

Well I ALMOST missed it today! I knew there was something I wanted to do but couldn't quite remember.
So I checked this thread to see if I'd missed it. Thank goodness I didn't!
I quickly grabbed my hat and keys and rushed out the door to make the long trip. I was late as it was about 1:15 PM already!
After what seemed like 5 minutes I arrived. It was actually closer to 4 minutes to make the 3.2 mile trip.
 ;D

The shooters were already on the course so I spent a few minutes chatting with one of Dennis Bakers Techs.
(I'm terrible at names so I hope everyone forgives me!)

After chatting with him I took a walk to see the course and just meet with people and learn a few things.
I took a bunch of pictures of the place while I was walking the course that I'll get uploaded ASAP.

Spent several hours talking with a lot of people about a lot of things. Race cars, compressors, Air Guns, etc.
Even met a fellow that lives VERY close to me that started into AG's just a couple years ago.
To find something like this so close to home is fantastic and I'm sure I'll be doing my research to get in on the fun!

I was pleased to meet everyone there that I did and I WILL be seeing you all again. And meeting those that I didn't chat with is a nice thing to look forward to!

Getting to see the course and it being so close to home was really cool!
Now I guess I'll have to see what Gun I have that falls in the specs needed.
20 FPE is max correct?

correct ... 20 ft lbs MAX
.177 & .20 are king, while some shoot .22's it is not an ideal caliber due to pellet diameter and slower speeds with the heavier weights generally found the most accurate.

Looks like a good use for the Diana 48 .177 to start.
I know how accurate it is and has a fantastic TO5 trigger thanks to Springrrr!
12 power scope is max also correct?
May need to see about rings for the UTG SWAT 3-12
