Re: Clarification of Standard Shooting Rules for 2017 QRA Queens

Agree with your observations on conflict avoidance in scoring. This is why I like having the requirement to inform the RO or ET staff of stray shots on target. Most misses will come from firing on the wrong target, and every stray shot should have a corresponding miss logged somewhere, otherwise som...

Re: QRA Queens

Squadding must be a logistical nightmare for relevant state and national bodies. By limiting the squashing to the final day, a great deal of time can be saved at each range avoiding the "gap". The varied wind patches and target number (side of the range) have the greatest effect on score a...

Re: QRA Queens

From the recent board meeting, it looks like squadding on final day of Duncan and Queens. Top 25 squadded from the centre of the range - out. No movement up the board and a gap between TR and F-Classes.

Re: Canty rear sight.

As mentioned by the others above, The Canty sight is set up with the elevation plate on the side face, while both the front and rear of the sight line are threaded (one for shade tube and one for iris). These are interchangeable so can be set up for left or right handers. If you are chasing one, I h...

FS Canty rear sight (1/4 x 1/2 Aus minutes)

For Sale: Canty rear sight

Canty rear sight in 1/4 x 1/2 minutes. Very little use in excellent condition with crisp movements. Comes with lever-lock, shade tube and a well used Gehmann iris. Surplus to requirements due to a recent change to English minutes. $300 for the lot.
