Thanks, John, Douglas. It's not at all what I envisioned when I first saw the term "Field Target". I had pictured strolling through a preset course in a "field" picking off pop-up targets, off hand, with an "off the shelf" air gun as in a hunting situation. I see that's not the case at all. These air guns are highly specialized and, seemingly, beyond many folks budgets. Seems like more of a "sniper" exercise to me. Not to say that's a bad thing....just not what I envisioned based on the term "Field Target".
Way to go Ed, #2 Piston shooter on the list. Thems bragging rights son!!
Hi All,After reading the description in the link, it seems like Field Target shooting is loosely similar to Archery 3d? Sounds like it could be fun. Where might one find more info and targets etc.?Carlos G
I read in the Marauder Forum those guys all shoot dime groups so they should have no problem. Oh wait, that's right, no bi-pods, no bags, no wind flags, no BS. Just fun.

Being able to shoot a dime sized group is definitely a plus, but the real trick is being able to hit inside that dime on your first shot, at an unknown target distance.
RETATCDUDE and Motorhead,I noticed that you are both in California. The Western States Regional Field Target Championships will be August 17th and 18th in San Luis Obispo County near Morro Bay. Fairfield and Placerville are only a 4 hour and 5 hour drive to the range. I hope you can make it. Great weather and free camping on site for competitors.
