    2020 North Island Big(ish) Bore

    Guys and girls, we have very kindly been offered a venue for the event.

    Just off the SH50, near Ongaonga (Waipukurau in the Hawke's Bay). Some of you may know the good bugger

    All still pretty tentative at this stage, but pencil in Sat 24 October, and get cracking on reloading for your portable canons.

    Format should be similar to last years event - 20 shots (box of ammo) will cover you for all the stages.

    Similar to last year.

    20 rounds

    +/-5 stages

    Balloons, Shooting Sticks, Jungle Lane, Long Distance (200m haha), Charging Lion

    Most shots will be in the 25 to 75m range, so open sights encouraged (you get extra style points)

    Anything 40 cal and over will be in "big balls" class, may make concessions for 358 or 375...

    Prize will be a box of chocolates. Entry fee around $ 20, not looking to make money, just cover expenses and give koha to land-owner etc.

    Might come down just for a gecko. I don’t own anything that shoots that short except a shotgun.
    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

    @Woody, it is primarily meant for large calibers. Those rifles that remain hidden in dark corners of the safe, only to come out once a year

    As with last year, you are welcome to attend with a peashooter, but obviously preference is for folks to bring out the heavy artillery.

    Will need to see how many entries we can handle this year. Probably 2 squads of 10 each will be about the max.

    Every time something really bad happens people cry out for safety and the government answers by taking rights away from good people.
    The solution to preventing acts of terror and violence by bad or deranged people is not to disarm good and rational people.
