That's the Western States Championships and AAFTA Grand Prix match. The biggest match in the West.



http://www.slsba.org/airgun/westernstates2015reg.htm

http://www.slsba.org/airgun/WS-2015-entrants.htm

Cutoff is 60 competitors. I appreciate early entries as it makes planning easier.

Monthly FT schedule for Morro Bay Airgunners:

We also plan on having monthly Airgun silhouette matches on the first Sunday of each month - starting in February or March. Details to follow.

Morro Bay Airgunners update
« Reply #53 on: February 01, 2015, 07:50:54 PM »
I just reconfigured our targets per suggestions from others.

Previously, we have been running Gamo targets, most with reducers. About 70% of the targets in a typical match have had reducers. I pulled all of the reducers from the targets with squirrel faceplates. Future matches will have only about 30% of the targets with reducers. There will be a lot more full size kill zones. We will also be pushing the average distance out some.

The squirrel faceplate is susceptible to rattle downs when you hit the tail. If you shoot high on the tail with a 18+fpe rifle, you have a near even chance of rattling the target down. Judging by the hits on our targets, it's apparent that some shooters were taking advantage of that fact when facing a squirrel with a 3/8" or 1/2" reducer. Now that all of the squirrels have a full size kill zone to aim for, the tail shot looks a lot less enticing.

Our next FT match should be a good trial run of the new configuration. I repainted all of the paddles for the next match. The bright yellow paddles in the full size kill zones should be easy targets :).

Not field target related, but we had out first silhouette match today:

I'm planning on going. You can borrow my 18 lb. Marauder Pistol, Baxter.

Nice job, Scott. I see you mixed in some pigs and turkeys in there.

Yellow on black gives the best contrast.  Quick to repaint. I doubt that you really care how pretty it is once you get your sights lined up.

Baxter,
Come to the match. I'll allow a new competitor over 20fpe for one match. Bring your rifle that is closest to 20fpe (.177 or .22). You'll shoot Freestyle (not AAFTA rules). Or you can borrow a rifle. I'll squad you with someone who can answer any questions as you learn the game.
