    You really did only go to school to eat your lunch and wag off after Phys Ed aye Gibo. The post says 28 rounds to complete the course when you read it so I would hazard a guess that 28 rounds will probably do. Get you daughter to count them out for you. Ha ha ha ha. Of course now that you missed the competition you could just truck up with shitloads and blaze away til your elbows get sore and you're craving a Waikato so have to stop.

    Gibo and stretch like this.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    It's usually every Saturday. You don't have to shoot the whole lot, but it's 12 rounds for a match, (two sighters and ten for score). You will usually get three matches, but often more, or be able to experiment at the end of the day, if there's time.
    Go to the website, look at the programme, that will fill you in.
    Unless your only talking about the hunter class,... Which the next one hasn't been confirmed yet.

    We are pretty flexible with regards to how much you need to shoot some will only shoot 12 rounds then bugger off others like John will turn up with 100 rounds and shoot most of them
    Hunter class 2 sighters 5 scoring shots so your pencil barrels don't heat up too much, but you can shoot as much as you want
    Come out and give it a go

    Yep. I'm just a hunter shooter but have had some very enjoyable days with the Te Puke Rifle Club. I always learn a new tip or two as well including reloading tips and Shooting techniques from the helpful stalwarts. I watched JWB shoot 10 rounds into the bull at 600 yards with open sighted 308 a couple of weeks ago. We can all learn from fellows like these.

    Yesterday was our last club day for the season and the last round of our club championship. An overcast day with light wind and a few showers later in the piece. Mike was the only one to go clean for the three ranges, and won the day. Brian started well with 50-8 at 3, and 50-10 at 5, but a mishap at 6 gave it away.
    Woody was there shooting his Schultz & Larsen 308 hunting rifle off his elbows with no other support than the rifles carry sling and proceeded to give a marvellous display of fine shooting. The best a 49-2 at 5. We had a visitor, Steve, who had a go for the first time at 600 with our club FTR rifle with John coaching. Steve's first round was a 50-4, but I don't have a copy of it, but have a record of his second shoot, a 49-4.Name:  Screenshot_2017-04-29-13-57-48.jpg

    The North Island 300 metre championship was hosted by the Te Puke club on the 20th/21st May 2017. There was a turnout of 15 shooters. Saturdays forecast was for showers in the morning with a brief period of rain around mid-day, with a bit of wind. Well that was fairly correct but what they hadnít quite got right was the strength, which turned out to be gale, and the temperature of the liquid ice that hosed down on detail 2 driven at gale force, which was freezing.
    Saturday started out overcast with sunny patches, for the first detail of seven comprising 6 FO/FTR, and 1 TR shooter, who made the best of the conditions. Steve Mann of Gisborne club posting a 598-50 in FO, Paul Neilson of Gisborne club a 591-21 in FTR, and Mick Buckley of Te Puke a 570-12 in TR Open.
    Then it all Changed. Detail 2 of 6 TR and 1 FO forced their way to the mound against a howling gale, as the sky darkened upwind. Loose gear flew downrange as shooters tried to set up while pinning down every item of gear with some part of the body. Shooting started, the gale rose and the liquid ice poured down. The horrendous buffeting, poor sighting and physical cold ensured that the scores were not flash with Brian Carter of Te Puke, a 561-14 in TR Open, Irene Cameron of Te Puke a 559-12 in ISSF and Makuini Moses a 578-14 in FO. There was an abrupt finish to the day with everyone heading home for dry clothes and to thaw out.
    Sunday was a beautiful sunny autumn day with mild winds after a frosty start. Order of shooting was swapped with the TR shooters getting first go. Rob Johansen of Gisborne posting a 584-16 in ISSF, Paul Neil of Franklin club a possible 600-33 in FO, Paul Neilson of Gisborne a 594-34 in FTR, and John Scobie of Otorohanga a 521-6 in TR Open.
    A special thanks to Ivan Hastings who volunteered to be our Butts officer for the weekend and to Pam Fourie who acted as our Range officer through both days and enabled the competition to happen with nary a hiccup.

    Was good to be able to try out some of JWB's 155hbc handloads in the old rifle. They worked very well. These guys know how to make some darned great loads. Just waiting for the recipe now; ha ha

    Saw some much better shooting than mine though from some of the members using their aperture sighted 308's. Learning how to read the wind is an eye opener. Hope its fine this coming Saturday.
