Good time had by all.  Poor visibility, but we escaped the rain. Conditions were tough! This was the 9th Gong shoot held since 2009.The course of fire was 10 shots off of cross sticks at 200 yards at a small steel chicken. The final 5 shots were shot off hand standing, at a larger ram steel gong.  There is always a rifle and ammo on hand for a new shooter to try.

The purpose of these matches is to generate interest in shooting the old buffalo period rifles.  The intent is to have fun, and learn about shooting these old guns. Feel free to stop out and test fire one of these old rifles. We guarantee you a good time.

The next shoot scheduled for Sept. 14th.  The September shoot is a paper match also at 200 yards. The Buffalo target is sized so simulate a 500 yard shot. 15 shots for score & 4 sighters.

Thanks For Coming!!
