Pump Gun & Side by Side Shoot - Feb 22nd

This shoot provides shooters with the chance to dust off one of their less-frequently used, and sometimes family treasured, shotguns and have some fun with it!
Congratulations goes out twice today to Jason De Jong who was both Pump Gun Champion with a HOA of 117/140 and Side by Side Champion with a HOA of 70/76.

Each shoot this year, we offer the "Golden Flash Target" with a Jackpot pool opportunity. There is an option to pay $10.00 per person to be included in this pool. There will be one or two hidden flash target/s in each shoot, if you hit the target you will win half the cash pot or in the case of two targets split it with one other shooter. The remainder of the 50/50 jackpot will stay in the pool until the next shoot and continue to build throughout the year.

The Jackpot as of the Pump Gun Side by Side Shoot is now at $1380.00 rolling into the Lorne Howes Memorial Shoot

Blog Article - Luther Cutts

To the new shooter, the variety of shotgun ammunition available can be overwhelming. There are so many different brands, and so many different combinations of shot size, payload and velocity that is can be troubling, even for the seasoned shooter.
It is our hope that this segment will demystify the shotgun ammunition selection process.

The size of the individual shot pellet is described in the form of a number. For target shot shells, the most common pellet sizes are 7-1/2, 8, 8-1/2 and 9. 7-1/2 is the largest of the group, and 9 is the smallest. Shooters must decide whether they want a dense pattern (smaller shot) or more energy per pellet (larger shot). The general rule is that closer targets warrant smaller pellets while longer-range targets require the larger pellets.

Employee Farewell
