May Bang Ping

Postby selurcspi on Sun May 03, 2020 1:10 pm

OK, as we can use outdoor ranges if we follow the social distancing rules, the May Steel Shoot is a GO for May 16th.
So, here we are, Thanks to Gov. Walz we lost the first April Bang Ping that we could have shot in 3 or 4 years, May is a different story

I've checked with the club, they have no problem with it, although we will have to do our social distancing thing and provide our own masks and sanitizer etc. One other caveat, the club, it officers and organizers of the shoot in no way accepts any responsibility should anyone contract any medical condition due to the their attendance at the Shoot.

Here we go.
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.

$15 for Non Members, $10 for Members. (Gopher Campfire Club Members)

Membership.. If you sign up for membership, the Steel Shoot counts as a club league so you pay only the $45, not the higher rate. Memberships will be available on the range.

Unfortunately we have our Senate district convention, I'm a delegate so I will not be able to make the May Bang Ping.

Both the main match and the Man v Man both depend on how many shooters there are. With 30 or so shooters we are usually done by 2 ish. That said you don't have to stay for the MvM.
