Re: The Future

# 4 DRA is not nominating any champions or teams in any disciplines either. Plenty of willing participants but executive has decided not to conduct DRA championships or nominate any teams?? and we wonder why we are in trouble.
I agree --time DRA's were gone.

Re: The Future

Mike, You have been shooting PRS so you have first hand knowledge. How many PRS shooters are there in Vic? You are correct in that we used to do a snap shoot at 300 also a rapid fire at 600 . However that was in the days when the army ran the show. It was actually compulsory to run a snap shoot at 3...

There's no depressed persons here Mike, just those with genuine concern for the direction in which we are headed, are'nt you?

Re: The Future

Geoff,
I know who is representing Vic in WA- that may have brought the entry up by 3 0r 4 --nothing to do with the timing. It's to do with other factors --complacency, cost, etc

Re: The Future

Further, A VRA notice re the 2018 AGM has just landed in my mailbox. There is a notice of motion which in a sentence says --" Do away with the state Champion of Champions, which only caters for DRA champions, and throw it open to all CLUB champions in all disciplines." That will probably u...

Re: The Future

Pigdog ( terrible name ) What you say is correct. An " untapped resource"? not so sure about that. SSR's cover for " field class" which I believe would cover a large percentage of those 99.9% you refer to. However, where is Field class conducted ? Grafton is the only place I know...

Re: The Future

What does it take for you blokes to get through your head that that F class want to do it F class way, and PRS, or any other discipline want to do it their way. Sit down and have a rational think about it. I understand the necessity to get more bodies on the mound but is this really the way to do it...

Re: The Future

It all starts at club level Mike. The club is the basis for everything. You were not around in the " good old days " ( tongue in cheek ) when clubs were totally active and along with DRA's formed the backbone of the organization. Today everybody is for themselves -- you reap what you sow. ...

Re: The Future

Noble ideas Geoff, but let's face it, you, I, and everybody else that cares know that's not going to happen. The powers that be would rather let us die than stoop to what they consider to be a somewhat lower level. They live in hope that a miracle will happen and suddenly we will get an influx of ne...

Re: The Future

There are obvious problems, but there are also " fixes " to those problems, BUT, being the selfish lot that we are we tend to look at everything from our own personal perspective with not a thought in mind to the overall much larger picture. Some basic sessions of " reflectology "...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

Light loads in tight barrels can cause " secondary " pressures which results in a spike caused by the high pressure gases catching up with the projectile prior to exit. Once thought not to exist but has since been proven to be there under certain circumstances -- light loads in tight barre...

Re: Question for the Omark experts

Agree with Keith and Phil.
Overloading will cause brass " flow " with or without an ejector. Moderate loads do NOT cause brass " flow " unless you have soft brass caused by incorrect annealing.

Re: Stock type?

On second thoughts it looks more like one made by the late Geoff Slee from Werribee ( Vic ) There was a slight difference around the grip between his and those made by Tom Canty.
