    These are some of the targets that were used. My sisters is the one with a smiley face above it.

    Ah shaddap! That just proves that TR's rifle is better than mine. I managed to match TR's 15mm at 75m in the end too. Can't wait for the range insurance co to let the new 100m target bins to be put up.

    Now if you lot don't mind I'll just doctor TR's scope and then go and sulk.

    We might get some meat home with TR shooting. I'm a bit miffed that her rifle is shooting better than mine.

    Not sure what happened to the third shot from the younger sister, but the first two would have done the job.

    Does your old man scare a lot of deer away when he shoots at close range?

    Well done TR (that is me encouraging you). GM I am assuming you know to aim for the red dot?

    Nice shooting Girls/Ladies
    I was at the range also yesterday morning took my daughter 8 and nephew 13 (may have just missed you guys).. they both did really well .. maybe shooting better than me started them off on the good ole 10/22 then let me my nephew fire few rounds through SKS ...Both look like their natural born shooters ..
    I agree GM I cant wait till the Hundy is back up and running again .. I still think is a great range facility and only 10 mins from home

    Oi hunter308, I have a bucket load of excuses. I know excuses don't stack up against results but it makes me feel better.

    Rushy, the eyes are not what they used to be, I think I need much bigger dots.

    Seano, we were out just after a late lunch. Don't forget there a plans for a 200m stretch as well, all approved, just got to get a round toit.
