How many are you willing to pay for is the likely answer. Scroll down the Phoenix club web site. I count 30 targets.

Re: Travelling to and from shoots and fatigue

I wonder what the legalities or liabilities are if someone was travelling with firearms, had an accident and was carted off in an ambulance unconscious while the firearms were unkowingly left with the vehicle?? There are certain states where your rifle, ammo & bolt must be separately secured to...

Re: Travelling to and from shoots and fatigue

Never done a long drive right after a shoot. I've always preferred to get a good night's sleep & take off at sparrow fart next day. There's a double benefit to that. You get a lot of road under your wheels while you're fresh & before the commercial traffic gets going. It's all good as long a...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

Then there's the issue for ranges with ETs - nobody likes to see expensive equipment shot up just to satisfy a fleld shooter who's rifle "will hold MOA all day out to 1000 yards". Come to think of it, if the 2016 QRA Queens results were anything to go on, not many TR & F class shooters...

Re: F Class Competition in Australia

I'm not so sure that we'd ultimately gain from a factory rifle division. It's my perception that F/TR with unlimited bullet weight was the child of the US where the expectation was that the tactical set would find it an alternative to their main discipline, thus reinforcing F class ranks. The realit...

Re: Mauser Extractor

I have one from a friend's (stolen) rifle. It was a .308 TR rifle & the extractor appears to have been modified to thin the hook slightly.

Email Me if you're interested.

Cheers, John

Re: Several primers not showing much pin strike

Philip, Have we been missing something here? Were you saying that the ones that you designate as being light strike nevertheless fired normally and weren't misfires or hangfires? if that is the case, then Keith is probably correct. The firing pin spring has lost a small degree of its strength allowi...

Re: Bisley style shooting

While officiating at the Oceania Games (the shakedown for the Commonwealth Games next year), I have had the opportunity to discover what time allowance is made for pair shooting at that level. Considering the shooter, marking & scoring, they squad on the basis of 1 minute per shot plus an allowa...

Great idea. Where can one get a certified Labradar?
