HBSA Wappenschaw Competition – Sun Dec 7th 2014

This popular and informal event, organised by Tim Castle, was held on Short Siberia range at 200 yards and was attended by 23 members and 2 guests.

To simplify scoring and speed up shooting, a hit anywhere in the scoring area was only worth one point, but a (lucky) hit on the central white patch which was only 1.5 inches square, was worth 5 points ! This was intended to remove most of the element of skill from the competitions.

Most entrants managed to shoot at least twice, with a wide variety of historic and some modern rifles. Inevitably, it was the latter which achieved the higher scores, but there were some plucky efforts from the historics too.  Results here >>>>

A delicious lunch was taken by 20 members afterwards at the Artists’ Rifles Clubhouse.

Thanks also go to Maurice Kanareck and John Butler for their help on the firing point.
