February 2020

This past weekend we had our January Snowshoe and Shoot – the weekend before, the weather was too horrible so we delayed a week and got a very nice winter’s day. There were 12 of us out in it doing the usual including pistol and a rifle walk back to 600m. The lesson learned for some – military surplus ammo doesn’t shoot very well at 600m – that’s why it’s not called “match ammo”, there is a difference.

Linda provides the following:
