the winter league started last sunday . it will run 12 weeks. we shoot a woods walk with steel targets.You don't have to shoot the league or be a member to come join us for a day of fun. hope to see some new faces this year.
You will need your shooting bag, powder horn and rifle with enough powder and ball to shoot the 10 shot woods walk course. Some guys use a range rod to load and swab between shots. There is a covered range to shoot practice shots while waiting to shoot the course. So bring extra and bring a friend or two.
Sounds fun! I can't come this weekend (wife is out of town, so I've got the kids on my own all weekend), but maybe next week.
Any issue with a 62-cal rifle? I'd guess most shoot something a bit smaller, but that's what I've got. Also, are there people there for newbies to check in with? I am not new to flintlocks, but I am brand-spankin' new to this kind of activity.
Anyone from the Berks/Schuylkill area want to take a ride out and shoot?
No problem with the 62. That is what i shoot most often. When you sign up to shoot you will be put with a group of 4 or 5 other shooters and a score keeper/range officer. Shots range from10 to 100 yards and chipmonk size to bison.
