Leadtober Fest 2016
October ~ due to Hunting Season and not wanting to shoot here and chase off the game before Opening Day????, 2016 Date Pending! (right now, looking at mid to late October)
BEER & BRATS SHOOT
(OF COURSE no beer til after all the guns and ammo are put away....why would you think otherwise?????!!)
PLEASE BRING TWO PUMPKINS, NON CARVED, PER PERSON. Size? Your Choice.
Sorry. Because of Time and Safety and Food Restraints, this shoot will be only for those invited.
NO CHILDREN NO PETS
It is going to be a very long hot day. Children (under 18 y/o) and Pets could melt away out here on the Prairie. We have no place for them to play.
AT 8:30 am. Note: We will be serving Hot Cakes & Eggs, for breakfast just before 8:30 am as the Shooters Meeting starts. Of Course there will be Hot Coffee!
Yes There Will Be! And We Are Pretty Dog Goned Sure....YOU ARE GOING TO LIKE THEM!
No, we are NOT Charging You For This Shoot. There will also NOT be any ~ that is no ~
NO MONEY "POTS".
We ask that there is No Gambling here. Thanks.
IF YOU WANT YOUR BRASS, MARK IT! PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO MARK YOUR OWN BRASS SO THAT WE WILL KNOW WHAT BRASS GOES TO WHO. We don't want any hurt feelings, so PLEASE Mark Your Brass.
PLEASE, EACH SHOOTER, BRING TWO PUMPKINS, NON CARVED. Size? Your Choice.
PLEASE, WHILE HERE, DO NOT STRESS OR HARASS OUR ANIMALS! Please do not bother our animals, do not "go see" our animals, do not 'pet' our animals, do not reach for our animals, w/o our permission. They are stressed from all the excite and You are a stranger to them. Thank You!
Not sure on this Class Yet....but there will be Moving Targets.
What type of Shotgun? The one that YOU are Really Good At Shooing. A 12 Gage or 20 Gage Shotgun would be your best bet.
Bring a Minimum of ONE BOX OF Shells for your Shotgun. Any size Shot you would like to shoot. Please Mark Your Shells if you want them back for Reloading.
Tie Breakers will be determined by a Shoot Off.
WE HAVE THE ROOM, WE HAVE THE TARGETS.....LONG DISTANCE SHOOTING IS A GIVEN FOR SHOOTING HERE....
We just do not know what Courses Of Fire we sill set up yet....but almost for sure...older guns will be shot for this Course Of Fire.
We titled this photo of Deron Shooting ~ Flying Shell. Look Close.
Our Pistol Class will be for any Hand Gun YOU want to use. Those with large capacity Magazines will have an advantage. Another advantage is owning and bringing Extra Magazines for that Pistol.
For the Pistol Class we ask that you bring 200 Rounds of Ammo for your Gun. You may or may not need it all. Please Mark Your Brass if YOU want to make sure you get it back to reload.
Bring any Revolver you want to shoot ~ and at least 100 Rounds of Ammo for it....but a Single Load or High Caliber Revolver will probably hold you back from winning this Class. Also: Please Bring some sort of Waist Held Extra Ammo/Speed Loader Holder Pouch.
If you own and use a SPEED LOADER(S), you will be at an advantage. Either way. You might want to get out and practice for THIS Class.
Again. Accuracy, rather than Speed will be KEY to Winning!
PLEASE BRING TWO NON CARVED PUMPKINS ~ PER PERSON. Size? Your Choice.
We are going to each "Carve A Pumpkin" with our Revolvers. Rather than Shoot OFF a Face, we are Going to SHOOT ON THE FACE!
The Face Will Need to have:
Mouth ~ At least 7 shots on the Mouth ~ Smiles Might Be Tops
The face that is the MOST Symmetrical will be the Top Winner.
The BEST Shot Out Jack O Lantern will be voted on by All Other Shooters Here. Best Face/Symmetrical Face, wins.
This will be a Timed Event. Time Going Backwards. You will only have so much time to Carve The Face In The Pumpkin.
No Target Markings the Pumpkins. Blank, Unmarked Pumpkins Only.
IF YOU SHOOT ANOTHER SHOOTERS PUMPKIN, YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
PLEASE NOTE: No Table will be set up for Extra Ammo or Speed Loaders....PLEASE bring an empty Pocket (keep one empty in the pants you are wearing that day or extra pocket pinned to your waist), or Shooting Belt or Shotgun Shell Holder for your waist. Each Person will NEED their own Waist Held Ammo/Speed Loader Holders....Head to Head Course Of Fire; Shooters will be shooting at the same time.
Keep In Mind.....high caliber ammo will blow up the pumpkin....not put a face in it.
I bet you just decided you want to bring LARGE Pumpkins, and a 22 caliber revolvers, ey?
How Far Will We Be Shooting? What Will The Pumpkin Be Sitting On? What Is The OTHER Pumpkin For? Come On Out and See.
YES! WE ARE GOING TO SET UP THE "WINNER" AND "WHINERS" BOXES!
WE ARE ALSO GOING TO HAVE A "TOP LADY SHOOTER" PRIZE. <combined scores for each/all classes shot by each Lady Here>
What will be the Prizes for these? Come See!
OPEN SHOOTING AFTER COURSES OF FIRE ARE RUN ..... bring Ammo for that too. HOWEVER!: YOU ARE DONE SHOOTING HERE ONCE YOU POP OPEN A BEER OR OTHER ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE!~
We have a Very TRE (Target Rich Environment)! This is a photo of our Pistol Range, we also have a Rifle Range Set Up....
BREAKFAST AND LUNCH SERVED
