Downtown SSM is pretty clear of snow but there certainly was a lot of snow on the ranges when I was out there this past Saturday. But bullseye season is over now so is time to put away the .22 Browning Medalist and pull out the STI Trubor in .38 Super. Or whatever you plan on shooting at our action shooting evenings. Monday the 20th is going to be an information/training night for those new to the group but Wednesday the 22nd I would like to provide the opportunity to shoot a little lead down range as well as start preparing for the new year. I say we evaluate our options, set up something quick and simple that we can shoot without getting too wet and without losing too much brass just to get back into the swing of things. Something to shake the dust out. Whatever the conditions allow. And only for a short period. Then we retire to the garage and build another bunch of the ABS barriers as pictured below.
Pat Stokes has indicated that the club will provide the funds for the additional frames (approx. $300) and I will pick up the pipe, angles and zip ties as needed. If memory serves me correctly, we should be able to build another 9 barriers with those funds. We will need some snow fencing. So if anybody has a lead on about 60 feet of snow fence it would be most welcome. As always, we will retire for some refreshments after the activities at the Legion.
