Brett,

How well do you know your local gun dealer?

Maybe that's his way of saying he hasn't got any, and wants to sell you something else :mrgreen: !

To all, The Victorian section of Starting Shooting is now complete (apart from the addition of some contact details, which will hopefully be added soon). I'm hoping to get some of you from other States to put your hands up to supply the equivalent information for your own States. All that is needed ...

Re: Possible Register

It's been tossed around before but never got off the ground and this seems like the perfect place do it. How about a register of all the possibles shot .... Getting back to the subject of the thread, we're nearly there. If you have a look at the "Results" menu of our website, there is a "Possibles"...

Thanks Ben, Nick (welcome aboard),

I'll give the ad another week or two just to see if anyone has some molyed ones hidden in the back of a drawer :) .

Tony, I suppose we won't really know the "Std vs. Open" possible ratio until we try it. I'd like to get it started, say with the start of the new season i.e. this weekend. It won't matter that the word will take a while to spread, because we'll be able to put them in retrospectively, although I'm re...

Tony, The main problem I have at present is the volume of work involved in keeping the list up to date :shock: . If there are 5 or 10 F-Std 60s shot each week from around Australia, this could become quite a chore on the website, particularly if we ask for equipment details. How about we leave the e...

Lynn, I just did some research in old ATR magazines. It appears that a decision was made by our 5 member board in early 2003 that Belmont would become the "home" of the NRAA. It appears there was no requirement for consultation with members. Interestingly there was a reasonable geographical spread o...

Lynn, I haven't thought a lot about the practicalities of moving the National Queens around, but I'm with you on the concept. I heard the decision re Brisbane was made mainly because the NRAA Council at that time was stacked with Queenslanders :mrgreen: ! I'm sure someone will set the record straigh...

Peter, Quite apart from the advantages of wind drift, F-Open shooters have several other available advantages over F-Std which help accuracy : - Heavier barrel - Lighter trigger - Heavier overall weight - Greater selection of projectiles So I presume your statement about the competitiveness of .223 ...

Tony, If by 100/100 you mean at both ranges of a 2 range shoot, it probably has happened, but I've never heard of it. I think with just single range possibles, it is rare enough. However with F-Std single range possibles of 60 are more common, and probably too numerous for such a register. If you we...

Matt, As an established member of those who haven't shot a possible (yet :mrgreen: ), I would go along with it. I think it should include all shoots run strictly according to the SSRs. This would give an added incentive to excel during saturday club shoots. I also think it would be a good way of get...

How about this then? In the Events forum, we create a topic for every Queen's shoot for the next 12 months (from the 2005 Queensland to the 2006 Nationals) which is named e.g. "Who Will Be at the 2006 National Queens?". People can post in these forums to announce well ahead (up to 12 months) of the ...

6.5 139gr Moly Scenars Wanted

I believe they are no longer being imported :cry: , and I don't have a tumbler or moly kit. Does anyone have any they don't want? I'll pay $46 per 100 plus postage for unopened boxes (that is the price SARA had them for).
