HAHA Field Target Club
The last outdoor match for the Canadian FT season is in the books! The day dawned grey and windy with the air temp reading -3C. Seventeen hardy shooters showed up at the HAHA range for day worth of fun. Shout out to Hamilton Anglers and Hunters Association (HAHA) for their great facilities!
The day did warm up to about 3C… thought with the wind blowing down the range into the shooting area it certainly didn’t feel like it did! The shooters meeting kicked things off at 10 AM followed by forty-five minutes of sighting time. Very glad to have the time to see how our guns would perform in the conditions. The springers definitely appreciated it with some seeing shifts of 8 clicks and 1.5 mil dots. Once sorted we got to have fun in the HAHA wind.
We shot seven lanes with four targets per lane and two shots per target.
At one point the wind was going left to right, then flowing into the middle and finally settled to coming straight down the range. This made it really interesting for the close shots as we were seeing little mini leaf tornadoes dancing in random directions. Chris H added to the fun by introducing his new “small: read “5/16” – kill zones at this match. Had some of the .22 cal guys using their finest compliments for him (and everyone else for that matter). Good to see you’re making more friends Chris 😊
A few cold fingers and three hours later we wrapped up. Had everything back away in short order too. Everyone was eager to get to some place warm!
Missed those that couldn’t make it. Look forward to seeing you all in the spring.
Thanks to everyone that helped set up and take down. Went super-fast and smooth. Bigger thanks to Chris H and Brian W for organizing
the day – it was a pile o’ fun! And
biggest thanks to everyone for showing up and have a great time. Shout out to Randy, our first-time
shooter. Look forward to seeing you in
