Shot Size on Shotgun Fields! Read and Heed

Members,

We found today almost a box of fired “00” buck shells on the trap field today (Sunday).  This is a reminder that the allowed shot size on ANY shotgun field is 7.5, 8, 8.5, and 9.  In other word no shot larger that 7.5.  The reason for that is SAFETY!  Larger shot size will exceed our safe fall area.  Depending on how these were fired, they could have easily left our range.

There is zero reason to have something that large on the trap field.  If you want to shot slugs, buck shot etc (anything larger than 7.5 shot, then you are welcome to use the SRB, 50yd  or 100m.

Thank you for your attention!!!

 

 

 

April Bowling Pin Match results

Gentle Shooters,

I am a bit full of myself today. We even have a picture. We had a spectacular turnout for the inaugural Bowling Pin Match of 2024. We hosted 20 shooters, fired 296 relays, and finished before 2:30 in the afternoon. I have to shout out to Cory and Dan, who assisted with scoring and safety duties and were instrumental in keeping the match moving.

It is clear to me that some of you were practicing and the scores reflect that. Congratulations to you guys.  The rest of us just showed up for fellowship, a good time and to heckle the good shooters. So, a very successful match. As you know, now that the season has started, we shoot matches because there is no time to practice. So I don’t want to see anything like the picture above that the range. PS. There will be no washouts for 2024. We intend to shoot steel pins in the short range berm on rain days! The next match is on Star Wars Day, May the Fourth be with you!

The Pins are Back

Gentle Shooters,

Like the geese that invade my yard, April is when the bowling pins re infest the Airfield Shooting Club range in otherwise bucolic Wakefield, Virginia. And like the geese, the pins will be shot, only not with paint-balls. Yes Virginia, this Saturday, April 6th, the 18th season of Airfield pin shooting kicks off. Rules for the match have not changed and are still here.

Set up will be at 9AM. We are looking for great weather and hey, all of your friends will be there. See you at the range.

Steven
