    That's a better range fee for the day. All the best guys see you in late August for the shoot.

    No we’re trying to find one for the square range first for the pistol club. Need to be the summer before could even attempt getting a container out there.

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    looks like a real nice set up. Only thing I'd suggest after looking at the website and stated ranges is to add some LR gongs between the 1000m and 2km marks. A 1300 or 1500 m gong would be a good add if the topography allows.

    there is one at a mile. Was hard to see misses so were going to clean it up around the target. Thought i got a hit on it with the 260 but it was through the strap. couldn't see any trace or misses at the time.

    Go to the sparrowhawk.co.nz page and have a look. The courses are on there, plus the range and the matches. Email nick if you want more info. The instructors there were trained at gun site in a number of disciplines, rifle shotgun and pistol. Nick is also ex military.
