Photos from today's shoot

The loading table is always a popular hangout


Start that ball!


David was one of two left handed shooters who shot today


David had to play catchup as he ran into construction delays on Rt. 202 on the way to the shoot.

I will post more.  We all had a great time today.  Too bad our shooting wasn't as good as the fun we had.

Here are more photos from today's shoot.

James


Mike Amico, one of four NJ shooters at today's shoot, is getting ready to load for his next shot.


This was our most difficult target of the day.


Why doesn't Mike seem very happy?

That's it on the photos.  The next shoot hosted by Southern Chester County Sprotsman's and Farmers' Association will be in late June.  Brandywine Longrifles will be hosting a shoot at the club on Saturday, 14 May.  Mike Amico will be match director and his daughter, Dave's wife, will be cooking chili and other goodies for lunch.

Please come and join us.

Good shoot today.  I didn't shoot that great, but had more fun than sitting at home.

Looks like fun - that's a descent group, if compiled onto one bull, with 2 lows ones, cutting each other. Little left is all. Bit right and only 2 outside the centre.  I assume 1/2 ball rule.

Definitely, not a bad group.  This was David Wright's target.  He shoots a T/C Hawken flinter.  He knows his gun!

Looks to me there was a good time to be had there :)
Nothing beats the feel of a handmade southern iron mounted flintlock on a cold frosty morning

I look at the faces kind of carefully to see if I recognise any body from my days years ago at Delaware County Field and Stream and at the Avondale Quarry club. Of course this goes back around 30 years ago. I moved about 140 miles nort and west to Northumberland county Pa in 1985.

There were six shooters, including four of us from NJ.  Those of us from NJ shoot at that club the second Saturday at the Brandywine Longrifles shoots.  The facilities are somewhat private; there are five ranges on that part of the club property and each one is totally enclosed.  You can see in one of the photos looking back at the firing line the covered positions in the background.  This allows us to do what we want to do, safely, of course, and not bother or be bothered by anyone else using the facilities.

The Revolutionary battle of Brandywine took place up the road a few miles.  The area has many 18th and 19th Century stone houses and other historic structures.

And, yes, it was a nice day to shoot and the shoot ran smoothly.  Drew Gregg, the shoot coordinator, served a nice chili for lunch and the fellowship was priceless.
