    2013 Hangawera Station Sniper shoot

    Early this morning people started turning up on the station just out of Gordington to attend the 2013 Hangawera station sniper shoot .This shoot has been running for many years now with the event organizer Harry Hoover "mountain safety officer " and the most winning-est shooter of the Charles Upham military rifle shoot ever 4 xin a row !
    Harrys event is a great day with many coming from around the country and as far from as Australia .

    The event always starts out with the full contingent listing to Harry outline the shoot and first and foremost the safety procedures -never ever had an accident and long may it last .

    Several forum members regularly attend this shoot and myself included -I was there to defend my last years title of "I beat rest of ya "! Sadly I turned up unorganized -and I knew and proceeded top get caned good and proper !!!!lol
    Hillary , Harrys wife and a former world champion millatary rifle shooter was organizing the scoring with a group of spotters .Hillary also organized a packed lunch and drinks for all shooters which makes life so easy .


    Gillie was the first shooter on the blocks and it was wonderful to watch another former winner of this event totally screw up having read his dope incorrectly and with me spotting for him pepper the surrounding area at 500 yards --that was him stuffed .
    Gille this time bought his very lovely partner along who I might add does not have a license and under Gillies direction proceeded to fire winning shots to his embarrassment I am sure --after the point are added up to mine also I am sure .Dirty Old Matt Ryan who loves to watch me squirm as my shots go some where they shouldn't was on pretty good form before I left especially at the longs being 1100 yards onto a ten inch disk .Matt regularly shoots a savage 338LM and shoots it with plenty of skill , he has also just won the Charles Upham belt this past January a goal he has been investing in for some time which has finally paid off .Thats me -two shots in the red shirt

    As I knew I hadn't a hope in hell of winning this time round I left after my final shoot so hopefully Gillie gives a further report of the day Name:  POT_4895.jpg

    OK El B this is a fair public warning that the next time I see you I am going to twist your nipples. No hand shake, no niceties just pain. Shoulda told me. Too late now.

    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

    Tell your mates they have a parasite on one of their S&Bs. Looks like a fucking ugly BORS might have infested it.

    Thanks for the support... it is much appreciated. This would have to be the first time i have ever miss read Norways drop chart format... and as such i never queried the value i had dialed. My mistake, not the dope's, the scope's or the gun's. I am certainly not proud of the very poor shooting on my part but i did come away with a result i am proud of. I equiped, set up and coached my partner to well deserved 6th place overall (from 23 shooters) in her first ever long range event. I was certainly not embarressed that she well and truely beat me, I was embarressed about my own shooting though. She had an awesome time and is mad keen to go back next year.
