HBSA "Four Types" match report

posted 1 Aug 2017, 03:30 by Tony Cattermole   [ updated 1 Aug 2017, 15:33 ]
This 'Snaps' and 'Rapids' competition at 100 yards using a modified version of our popular turning Fig 11/NRA DP1 targets, attracted a good field of 20 entrants. The Match results >>>>

The weather was breezy and rather overcast with sunny periods, the rain holding off until the end of the last detail at 1220 hours !

The markers supplied by Jim Stevens did a great job as the action was fast and furious. Our thanks go to Neil MacFarlane who ran the firing point, ably assisted by George Tondryk and David Carroll.

Unofficial 'Firing Point Style' awards:
  • Milo Thurston for shooting his Lebel with the appropriate tin hat (potential additional award available for the appropriate moustache too next year?)
  • Kieran Whelan who did so well to win the Siege Of Ladysmith with 10 ex 10 shots on the target (6 bulls and 4 hits) with a BP Martini Henry 577/450
  • The stunning 50 ex 50 with a standard iron sighted Mauser G98K of Peter Fearon to win the Two Types is also worthy of special mention
