    Eastern Ontario/Western Quebec May 27, 2012 FTA shoot

    In the continuing Eastern Ontario FTA group:

    "We can start setting up at 9:00, do some sighting in and try to start the 'match' around 10:30. We'll be there until early afternoon. Please RSVP if you plan on attending. Also please read the safety rules at the bottom of this email. We HAVE to do a better job of ensuring that everyone is safe!


    We should have about 25field targets on hand for this next shoot.
    In addition to your gun and pellets please bring along a pen, clipboard and something to sit on (cushion or pad, not a chair) for the many seated shots. If you want to do sighting in please bring along a carton with targets attached.
    There will be a couple of airguns that people can borrow, and there will be a couple of 'real' FT rifles for people to check out.
    If you are bringing a PAL gun with you, remember your firearms licence.
    I have added yet a few more hopefully helpful links to the page at http://www.firearmstraining.ca/ft.html
    The new location is about six minutes south of the Limoges exit on the 417. This is at the large acreage (open farm land with lots of wind to keep bugs away) of one the local airgun shooters.

    There's a google map link to the new location (about six minutes south of the Limoges exit on the 417) at

    GENERAL GUN HANDLING SAFETY
    - NEVER point your gun at anyone and ALWAYS treat your gun as being loaded at ALL times.
    - ALWAYS be aware of where your muzzle is pointing, if you have difficulty getting up from a prone shot without waving your gun around, please ask another member of your group to help you.
    - If you have a magazine fed rifle, please remove the magazine between shooting pegs/lanes.
    - If you have a Break Barrel rifle, please break the barrel to show it’s safe. Similarly if you have an underlever rifle, please crack the underlever while carrying the gun.
    - Please do NOT rest your muzzle on your foot and please don’t carry your gun using the scope as a carry handle.
    - Please do not load your rifle or even look through the scope ANYWHERE except across a designated firing line – that means the Zero Range OR the Course and nowhere else.
    - Most importantly, if you see someone being unsafe, politely point it out to them. THOSE WHO CANNOT SAFELY HANDLE FIREARMS WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.
    - While you’re shooting the course, we operate a BUDDY MARSHALLING system. That means that everyone on the course is a safety marshal, not just the people wandering around with florescent jackets on.
    - it’s YOUR responsibility to make sure that everyone in your group stays safe.
    - If you’re in ANY doubt at all, please ask one of the roving Marshals.
    STOPPAGES
    - If you hear a SINGLE blast on a whistle or air horn it means CEASE FIRE immediately. If you have a loaded gun, please point it at soft ground across the firing line and discharge it safely into the ground.
    - Remember, We’re ALL responsible for safety, so please make sure that everyone in your group is aware of a cease fire and that the groups to your left and right are also aware.
    - While a cease fire is on, please DO NOT look through your scope or shoulder your rifle for ANY reason.
    - Two blasts of a whistle or horn mean that it’s safe to continue – Again, make sure everyone in your group and in the groups around you are aware of this.
    - DO NOT Under any circumstances cross a firing line – if there is a problem, find a roving marshal and tell them what the problem is, they’ll be happy to help you.
    - If you’re a spectator, please have consideration for those shooting the competition, and please do not approach or distract shooters while they’re taking a shot.

    WooHoo!!! It has been a mad rush getting stuff ready, but I think I'm actually going to attend this one (as usual, I leave everything to the last minute...) Just picked up my new AR2078LE and CenterPoint 4-16x40 scope on Friday - thanks, Eric! Never even fired a shot and I had it tore apart, de-burring/polishing all the usual parts.

    I'm not a big fan of Co2 (too inconsistent, plus it sucks not knowing when the power/POI falls off...), so I took the bottle/coil hose from my MK I and (temporarily) attached it using the bulk fill cap that came with gun - much better! Dropped the output pressure to 500 psi, now it consistently shoots 10.3 - 10.5 gr lead @ 495-499 fps, although the hose and "loose" bottle is a little cumbersome. Will be getting the bulk fill cap from Eric that has the nipple coming straight out (as opposed to the stock angled one) this week so bottle will be secure, plus get rid of the coil hose.

    Looking forward to my first FT shoot, can't wait! Anyone else here attending?
