May I Bang Ping

May I Bang Ping -- Indeed you May

In one week the May Bang Ping will be well underway. We have a guest stage designer this month, I will not say who, as he might not show up if I do.

OK. What's needed? Just like the Second rule of gunfights states......Bring a Gun!...... 9mm, .38, 41, 44, 45, will do the job.

Holster, not needed for a Tyro, but you cannot shoot Man v Man without one. The trigger MUST be covered. Mag carriers are a big help, also we recommend you bring 4 magazines. If you don't have sufficient magazines, bring a friend with an Uplula.

Round count, in a perfect world 100 would suffice. If you have the slightest idea you might miss, bring more....lots more. I don't miss much but I still bring 200

Hearing protection, if you want to be able to talk with your grandkids bring it, learning sign language at 50 isn't easy.
Eye Protection, good quality sunglasses, safety glasses or prescription glasses are MANDATORY, they should wrap around the side or have side panels.
Think of your shooting glasses as your American Express Card, don't leave home without them. We're shooting at Steel, bullets shatter, pieces of them bounce.
Clothes...This is Minnesota, bring snow clothes, rain gear, sunscreen, shorts....you get the picture...be a boy scout.
Hydration, bring something to drink, it may be hot (or cold) so bring water or something else (non-Alcoholic).
Food, the town is six miles from the range and there are no facilities on site, bring some lunch, you might get hungry otherwise.
Start Time, Setup will be at 8:30, Safety Briefing will start at 9:30, if you are not there for the safety briefing, I'm sorry but you will not be able to shoot the match.

COF, Four stages, each of 4 strings with the best three times to count. The winner will be the one with the lowest total time for the 12 runs.

As of today, a 90% chance of rain.

I didn't make the April shoot because it was pouring rain as I left my house. I was unable to sleep that Fri night, so the rain, was enough excuse to drive back into the garage and go to bed 8-) .

Then, Benny tells me you guys/gals didn't get rained on at the shoot. I'll watch the radar this time, before making my decision. I'm a Fair Weather shooter. :bolt:

It looks like this one is going to get a lot of rain, and all day long. Maybe it should be rescheduled for a dryer day.

Rain or shine dude. We'll stop waiving lighting rods when prudent.

Of course the English are not bothered by rain and apparently neither are Royal Navy vets
