Summer Shooting

Postby SR9 » Mon Oct 03, 2016 4:49 pm

It has been a bit too quiet around here so I thought i would start a thread on what members are shooting for fun and sport this Summer. I will start.

I am a 22 bulls eye shooter and belong to the NVPL. Spent May-August shooting the Summer League. Also, participated in all the 22 silhouette, pins and service rifle matches at WLOPA this Summer.

The NVPL Winter League Starts 10/12. Looking forward to stepping up my average this year.

Seems as though most are hoarding ammo; firearms are moth-balled.
I blast a few water-filled cans before recycling them.
Trying to get my neighbor to get some trigger time with his arsenal, but he's always too busy. Loaded up some .243 Winchester for his wife and some .303 British for his newly-acquired Mk3 SMLE, but I've been the only one to shoot it as yet (what a fun shooter!).

Not with the SMLE, but rather 18 grain plastic riot bullets out of my FR-7:

I shoot bulls eye winter league (Metropolitan Revolver League of Hartford). I also shoot a summer league and occasional bowling pin, pie plate, sheet and sporting clays. And of course a plinker now and then.
Thanks Pop

As far as the league goes the NVPL is a club with just 4 teams and we shoot at the Concordia in Seymour. No traveling. Everyone is welcome and we have a lot of new to bulls eye shooters. We are very laid back and we compete against each other for fun. Win lose or draw we just have fun. Several forum members shoot there with me. They might chime in.

So if you are interested please let me know.

Nice on the STI, they make nice hardware for sure.

Nice CT. One of these days I am going to get out to your neck of the woods. Sounds like you have a nice place there

Nice! I knew there were a few more bulls eye shooters out there.
