What experience / ability / equipment do I need?

    200 rds of rifle ammo other than .223/5.56mm is a LOT of ammo! Think of someone shooting any nostalgia battle rifle (M1 Garand, Mauser, Lee-Enfield, Moisin-Nagant, etc.)

    Wearing a mask while shooting can (a) interfere with a proper cheek weld on the stock and (b) the mask can dislodge during shooting.

    At our annual CAS event, the shooter had the option of wearing a mask. Most did not – BUT the RO was required to wear one while supervising a shooter.

      Hi Todd thanks for the questions:

      200 rounds is a lot, but you don’t have to shoot 200 rounds. If someone would like to only do two stages and 100 rounds then no problem, this isn’t a competition, it’s all about safe fun so people are welcome to participate to their chosen capacity.

      If you want to do one stage with a bolt action 303 and the remainder with a 556 or 7.62×39 that’s fine by me. A 5.56 and 9mm club gun is available for use by those who don’t have access to an appropriate firearm or wish to use a more affordable ammo. The ammo the rifle is zeroed to costs 44c a round and is available on GoTenda. All club guns + magazines will be sanitized between users.

      To answer your posted face mask question, I cannot control who attends, where they have been or who they have interacted with. More than 864,000 people have died from COVID19 and countless others from delayed/reduced access to public services. I will continue with requiring people to wear a face mask, accidental dislodging is understandable but is a “might happen” which we can live with compared to not wearing one at all.

      I’m happy to answer more questions as best I can, as a rule of thumb the answer to most questions will revolve around the most safe and fun possible thing.
