Not one Calgunner showed up today, I guess the 50 yard AR sniper rifles are not up to "going the distance".

^ Well you're asking them to stand up & shoot like a Man...

I marked my calendar for Nov 4. Is a scoped Savage Model 10 eligible? Or is this C&R only?

Sure, scoped Savage Model 10 is eligible, had three varmint rifles today.

Next month is 20 irons and 20 scope, so bring out a milsurp or any ironsighted rifle and a scoped rifle.

Not one guy with a space age "black gun"? When you say "going the distance" I know why they did not show up. 200M is just not far enough for the space guns with all the trinkets attached to their rifles with "bullet button".

What did you expect with 14 hours advance notice? If I had heard about this last week, I would have brought the CoCo County Crew.

I collect Military Arms and enjoy shooting in local matches. I also collect older Lever Actions, especially those chambered in odd/old cartridges. If you have a nice old Winchester or Marlin in 25-20, 32-40, 38-55, 40-60, 45-70, etc etc, please PM me and we can work out a deal.

Seems a lot of casual shooters dont surf club websites for information on "Other" shooting venues".

Stop loitering on the 50/100 yard lines.

^ Most casual shooters are intimidated by any kind of formal competition. Sad that most don't realize how much they could improve their shooting by attending a match or two. A lot of ranges don't encourage Offhand shooting as well.

I've been shootng at chabot for 5 years and I'm gregarious and I know my ***** (with enfield anyway). It can still be pretty intimidating with all the know it all types there who are into match shooting. Some of the same folks who wield garands will ask why you don't have an Amurricn gun etc and then will ask why I'm not coming to the matches. I worry about going to a mtach and looking like a dick because my eyes aren't that great anyway. No-one I've met there makes me think I could ask them as question without being treated like an eejit. Just sayin'

1892, are you talking highpower/national match crowd? or the 1st Sunday silhouette crowd? I dont think its the 1st Sunday silhouette crowd, I rarely shoot an american gun and mostly old foriegn military or single shot guns and dont get any S***T except from my friends, we are a good group and are always helping new guys.
