The sun was shining, the winds were light, and the temperature was a balmy +7C – a great formula for the last event of the 2022 HAHA Field Target season.  It was great to see everyone out, including some new faces.  The event was intended to be more of a social than competitive shoot –…

The Fudd is a Fall tradition in Southern Ontario – the focus is on having a fun day out shooting airguns and the competitive side is dialed back a bit. This usually encourages people to bring out different guns and try things that they might not in a typical Field Target match.

We had 19 shooters attend with a great assortment of guns.  The shooting was fun, Chris’ famous chili afterwards was a welcome warm-up and it was a great way to wrap up a very enjoyable Field Target season at the Port Colborne club.

Another HAHA FT match is in the books with a few second guessing their set ups! Saturday proved to be the most challenging course this year. With more reduced hit zones and 20-35km winds, pellets were dancing all over the faceplates and beyond! It was awesome to chat with a prospective new competitor “Harold” who…
