Surrey Branch “Repeting Pistol Open Meeting”, 2020 Cheylesmore, Bisley – Proceeding
September 26 @ 9:30 am - September 27 @ 4:30 pm
Dear Shooting colleague
After MONTHS when we have not been able to shoot, I am pleased to announce an Open Meeting at the end of September... Please see the entry form on the 'Competition Entry Form Page'
As usual -- - All types of ML “Repeating pistols” -- if using BP substitutes or smokeless powder it MUST bear valid Proofmarks.
STANDARD (basically 19thC plus the fixed sight Ruger OA), matches for OFFHAND (one handed) and SUPPORTED (2 hand hold);
TARGET (any percussion cap ML revolver -- incl. target sights etc (“specials” and “standard”) – but ONLY fired OFFHAND;
FREE (any percussion revolver – SUPPORTED or OFFHAND)
MODERN M-L (smokeless conversions, #209 primer fired, “Patriot” magazine pistol … … …) SUPPORTED or OFFHAND.
5 Courses of Fire – SLOW-, TIMED-, RAPID, “BOBBER” (turning target) and “SURRENDEN” (against the Clock)
We do not know what version of “Covid-compliant regs” the NRA will be using by then, but expect that we may not be able to use all 20 targets -- - so please (a) BOOK EARLY – saving money if received by 12th Sept., and (b) BLOCK BOOK a firing-point.
Your Registration includes ONE Match Entry so you need at least another 3 for a nominal “half-day” reservation.
Please check your Insurance:- shooting under the aegis of the MLAGB does not allow loading directly from a flask (you must use a single-charge transfer device – or pre-weighed charges in phials). If shooting as an NRA Member please check the new “Classic/Historic Handbook” which is due for publication in the near future. Otherwise please check your CLUB insurance.
Can you help? As there is a Kempton Park Arms Fair on the Sunday some of our (few) volunteers may not be available to help run the Meeting and some (lucky blighters!) may want to shoot on the Saturday. Do let us know if you might be able to assist us.
(Just a thought ….. you might consider designating some Courses of Fire as being concurrent for the Club Championships which you might not have been able to run.)
