    Default Re: PAFOA/PMSC Group Shoot #2 (of 4) for 2018 - June 16, 2018 (Near Pgh)

    So this is strictly non-magnum handgun for the informal shoot, and rifles for the informal-formal bullseye.

    Do you operate by permissive or restrictive rules? Like you say 9mm carbines are OK, but what about subsonic rounds that would be less concussive than 9mm, like a 45ACP carbine?

    I'm planning on coming out, just trying to get a better lay of the what's-what and what ammo I need to make sure I have.

    For the group shoot in general, you can shoot anything other than full auto and no incendiary rounds. (tracers)
    There will be paper targets to plink away at.

    For the steel targets, "no magnums."

    For the "competition" I don't think there are caliber restrictions. (Pennlineman is handling this portion and can clarify)
    It appears you can use any rifle - open sights.
    See below.
    This Month's "BONUS FUN" Competition:
    The competitive portion of this shoot, which is free and not mandatory will be a rifle bullseye shoot.
    The shoot will consist of 40 rounds fired at 25 yards on an A23 target.
    10 shots each fired from the standing, sitting, kneeling and prone positions.
    You'll have 15 minutes to shoot your 40 rounds.
    There will be two classes. Rimfire and centerfire open sights only. You can only shoot in one or the other, not both.

    Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 shooters in each class!
    I realize some people may have difficulty shooting some of the positions due to physical limitations. If so you can substitute that position with additional string from the standing position. Shooting mats will be provided.

    Thanks for the reply! my only question was about the "informal" shoot, there was some ambiguity on what went where. But we have it figured out, and all is good from here

    If you look at the last group shoot thread, you can see some pics of the range/ranges.
    Start here.

    Photos from the October 2017 shoot can be seen starting here.

    as far as the prizes go.. it looks like Pennlineman fronts the cost for these ... I say We don't need Real prizes..or take donations to help cover the cost

    There are no caliber restrictions on the rifle shoot. You can shoot either rimfire or centerfire but not both. Subsonic is fine as well as suppressed. The steel targets are restricted to standard service cartridges such as 9mm, 380, 38 spl, 40 S&W and 45 ACP etc. .22LR is also fine. No magnum cartridges are allowed nor are frangible bullets or bullets that a magnet sticks or not allowed as these seem to leave small divots in the targets. The targets are provided by 3 regulars so we try to tread lightly on them.

    Magnums are fine for the main bay on paper targets. We've had firearms as large as .50 BMG on this bay.

    I plan on being up there early to set up the bays if any one wants to help. probably around 7. We'll be bringing the cooking stuff for the bacon. As always anybody who contributes bacon, donuts, coffee, drinks it is always appreciated.

    EM, no problem on having to leave early. I can stay until quitting time.

    STAMP IS IN!!! So that means I'm headed to Elk County Firearms Saturday morning to pick up my gun. At least I'll have a new gun for the next shoot. Have fun all!

    From the MEME war thread, it seems to belong here.
