Richard it is easy to make someone's eyes glaze over when you suggest something outside the box of their expertise and comfort zone. :) A program like that would be simple to construct...for the right person. What needs to happen is for someone to put out a general request for interested parties wit...

I thought it was a foregone conclusion that the NRAA was going to officially sanction F/TR -why has this not yet happened? Until this happens F/TR will remain in limbo. The advocates of F/TR should be making a concerted effort to get it into the rule book thereby establishing it as a recognized int...

So that Maltese is now looking a bit like a short legged Dalmation? :D

...The 1st 2 sighters on 2 wrong targets is a tactic us experienced shooters use... I have a few of these cunning tactics up my sleeve too e.g. leaving the bolt at home, using an unprimed round. As Rod says, it comes with experience... :lol: :lol: Whilst having not done it myself I have noticed tha...

lynn, ...in fact I was involved in running the IPSC state rifle titles at your Kapunda range about 10 years ago and it worked well. 10FPAT Hmm, I was on the committee back then so I know how many blind eyes were turned to accommodate that event, in fact it was done a couple times. Like I said, it m...

We see to often the look of horror on a prospective members face when they ask " how much did that cost ? " Our experience is that there is a vast difference between "how much did that cost" and "how much does it need to cost". It often comes down to 'boys and their toys' (and I say that with amuse...

...In a nutshell I rather think that we should put our efforts into increasing numbers without introducing other disciplines, or variations of what exists. I see no reason why we should change anything about what we do now and how we do it... Barry, the first time I met you, you announced you were ...

Norm SSAA ranges have different rules governing their use with different safety factors built in. I'm not totally conversant with their restrictions but for us it is the ricochet factor involved with metal objects (even fastenings on the target frames) that interests the inspectors. Having been invo...

MAYBE F/S could ( should ) have stayed with Ex T/R rifles on bipods Well maybe, if they had ever been that, the reality is that the above combination was never the criteria of the class. If the current set up for F Std bothers people then they have the option of F/TR which more closely resembles th...

A practical style comp would be awesome. Its not training to kill people, its a combination on athletices, pure marksmenship, ballistics knowledge, and innovation as you are required to shoot from various unconventional positions, at distances at unknown ranges within a set time limit. I mean serio...

To be a little more precise, and this is not the only factor, all shots fired must be fired at the backstop and the safety template is based on 11 degrees of the line from the firing point to the backstop. Add to this the necessity to not close the bolt until the rifle is aimed at the backstop. In p...
