Is the F Class shoot then going to be "before or after" the main TR or FTR shooters?

If u are talking about Dalby , prs at 8 am , f class at 12:30 .

Stupid question!

Ftr and fullbore target rifle are currently shot at the same time on most ranges and basically fall into the same style of shooting. What they are proposing is a different thing and needs to be given the opportunity to be allowed without causing previously stated issues that concern the other classes!

I see this debate is about is along the lines of Fclass v PRS

To my way of thinking there is no debate , unless clubs grab this exciting and new style of shooting they will be doomed.

I've seen PRS matches sell out in twenty minutes while some prize meetings fail to attract two dozen entries.

Need we say more?

Respect the past , and remember that it is the past!
The exciting future awaits those who grasp it.

Mick that is certainly one way of phrasing it.....
But perhaps many of us would prefer that this thread was how F Class and PRS style matches can possibly co-exist on our ranges and thereby strengthen
our community as a whole.
EVERYONE has there right to enjoy their own type of shooting discipline and all disciplines have skill factors that any reasonable person should respect.

Full bore, F Class AND PRS/PSR should be working together and that way everyone benefits and I for one hope that is what the future holds, because it is certainly what our community needs.

Pete

Pete , that is exactly what we have done on our range at Warracknabeal.

Everyone is welcome to shoot every weekend what ever style and any caliber up to .50 cal
With "nraa" style of shooting declining in numbers , it was time to open up to others rather than exclude at our peril.

It's a great pity that not all clubs see it as you do Mick.

Growing the sport takes time and dedication.
When I joined Nowra Rifle Club in 1992 we had 12-16 members, we now have 451.
Not everyone wants to shoot Fullbore or F Class. Give the customer what they want.
We have evolved Nowra Rifle Club into a multi-disciplined shooting club shooting 14 different long arm codes and 8 pistol codes on 6 shooting ranges within our complex.
The club as a whole is affiliated through the NSW Shooting Association. we are not a SSAA club.
See our web site and take a look at our monthly calendar to get an idea of what we do.
