Extreme Rimfire Silhouette

The Foxhole in Gainesville is a major sponsor of ERS for 2011

 

Special Announcement Registration will begin at 7:45 and shooting will start at 8:30 sharp.

We will be testing out a new class this year - .22 SACS (Semi-Auto Class Squirrel). The qualifications will be the same as the existing Squirrel Class but applied to production unmodified .22 rimfire semi-automatics such as the Ruger 10/22's or Remington 597's. If successful, I'm sure a SACU (Semi-Auto Class Unlimited) will not be far behind. So dust off those old semi-autos you have in the closet, mount up a 3X9 power scope and come on out and have a great time with us shootin' little bitty metal targets out to 212 yards.

This new class will hopefully draw a few more shooters to our events. I am looking forward to seeing all of you at the firing line.   Good Luck!

This match is for rimfire firearms. The targets are made from ¼" and 3/8" steel plate and are cut in the shape, silhouette, of different animals. The chickens are 3/8" and pigs, turkeys, and rams are ¼". Target damage will not be tolerated. Any firearm damaging targets will be removed from the firing line. The goal of the contest is to hit and knock off the rail as many of the silhouettes as possible. The targets consist of: 10 chickens at 75 meters, 10 pigs at 112 meters, 10 turkeys at 144 meters, 10 mini targets at 144 meters, and 10 rams at 189 meters.

This sport is best shot with a spotter. It is up to each shooter to arrange for a spotter. The spotter’s task will be to read and interpret the wind and other conditions, and then relay this information to the shooter so that they can make adjustments as necessary to get and stay on target. Each shooter will be provided a score card. A perfect score will be 40 points. The 10 mini targets are bonus targets.

 

The range master will call "shooters to the line" at this time all shooters will bring to the line their gun. After the shooters have made the necessary preparations to their position, they will be given the command "READY". At this time empty chamber indicators may be removed from the firearm and can be loaded and made ready. The "READY" period is 15 seconds long. After the "READY" period the shooters will be given the command "FIRE" each shooter will then have 10 minutes to fire as many sighter shots as they feel necessary, and then ten record shots. When the shooter completes his sighter shots he will notify his spotter that he is going for score, and he will then fire one shot at each of his 10 targets.

 

The targets will be shot from left to right; any target shot out of order will be scored a miss. After the shooter begins his record shots no further sighter shots will be allowed.

July 19th, 2014                               Match Report

Our June match hosted 18 participants as they shot 25 entries on a soggy day. Heavy rain in the morning delayed the match but got lighter as the day progressed. At least the temps were very comfortable for this competition.  

My faithful Assistant, Bob Smoller ran the match for me today, with the help of Robby Lawrence and Ron Dixon. Robby can always be called upon to be a good “mouthpiece.” I did finally show up after traveling 3000+ miles from Peru – so I received the “Greatest Travel” Award. We had a scare with Charlie Craft as he had an adverse reaction to some new meds, was taken home by Ron Dixon, and ended up at the ER. Checked on him today (7/22/2014) and he is back at home and OK. Thank you Lord!

Score leaders are as follows:

Squirrel Class - 37 D.T. Brakebill,            Robert Demuth, & Ed Mundy

Semi-Auto – 36       Andy Cagle                            BRS – 40       Larry Griffin & Ron York

Unlimited – 37        Charlie Craft &                     .17 Cal. – 39   Chris Craft &                                     Neil Truelove                                                        Neil Truelove

.22 Mag –      38       Neil Truelove         

Special Thanks again go out to Robby Lawrence, Ron Dixon, and Neil Truelove, who tirelessly helped set- up, run, and closed down our match. And to the many participants who helped reset targets. “Many hands make any job smaller.”    

Bob, my assistant, has advised me that he will be stepping down from his position after October. Please contact me if you would consider stepping up in service to this discipline as soon as possible, Bob said he would available to “show you the ropes” with the registration and line training at your convenience.

May 17th, 2014                                   Match Report

Marvelous May…

Our May Match found Twenty-two participants shoot 34 entries in 8 different classes with the heaviest concentration gathered in Bench Rest Scope (BRS) Class. With 14 entries, competition was seriously fun! Two 40X’s led this class made by Donald Drummonds and Ron York. Congrats gentlemen! Six other shooters Vied and Tied for 2nd and 3rd place finishes in BRS – strong competition indeed! I wanted to mention the Normans, Freddie and Chuck – I think we have them hooked on our “little” game. After shooting Freddie’s CZ 455 with good scores, I think Chuck might have to ‘round one up for himself. And welcome they are, as both are fine gentlemen of this sport.

In our new trial class of .22 Mag, Charlie Craft also scored a perfect score with a 40X. We had a couple of new shooters today by the name of Craig Green and Larry Griffon, and they came ready to shoot. They each scored 37’s in the BRS Class, good enough to share 3rd place, in their first competition at Extreme Rimfire Silhouette.  Oh, and I just wanted to let you know – Robby (with a Y) was robbed… yep, he made a solid hit on a chicken (must have been a SUPER CHICKEN) but it didn’t fall down. Be sure to share your condolences with him for his loss – I mean – miss.  : - )

Thanks go out again to my assistant Bob Smoller for running the line, to Ron Dixon & Neil Truelove for setting and picking up targets, to Ed Mundy and Thaxton Stafford for helping close down the range and sweeping up the brass. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Our next match is scheduled for Saturday, June 21st, 2014. If you are interested in some fun fellowship and challenging shootin’ then come on by and try your hand at our little game.

Another fun day at CGC! Comfortable temps and overcast skies with light sprinkles greeted our shooters today, with gusty winds picking up in early afternoon.

WELCOME SPRING!!!

What a great day at CGC! Early Spring temps and light winds made for a beautiful day to shoot. We had 15 participants shoot 30 entries in seven different classes. The swirling winds were again difficult to manage and allowed only one 40X this match, made in our .17 Cal Class by Neil Truelove. Other Class leaders were Tom Butner & David Cote in Squirrel Class with 39’s. Ron Dixon scored a 35 in Bench Rest Iron Class. Semi-Auto Class was led by Ron York with a 39. Our Bench Rest Scope Class had 3 co-leaders with 39’s- Tom Butner, Neil Truelove, and Ron York. Charlie Craft led our Unlimited and our .22 Mag Classes with a 38 & 39 respectively.

I can see it is going to be another exciting year here at Extreme Rimfire Silhouette. I hope you might consider coming on by and try out our little game. Our next match is scheduled for the 3rd Saturday in April, the 19th. Remember to always…

January 18th, 2013                                            Match Report

HAPPY 2014!!!

Here we grow again… Our cold and windy January match had 13 hardy souls come out and shoot 21 entries before giving in to the blustery conditions. Starting at 23 degrees with gusty winds made for low average scoring day. Our score leaders of the day were David Dockery in Squirrel with 39 critters knocked down, Ron York II in Bench Rest Pistol - 36, David Cote in Semi-Auto Class - 27, Dallas Smith in BRS - 37, Neil Truelove in Unlimited – 30, Coleman Drummonds in .17 Cal. – 37 (he guessed Ron York was too scared to come today), and Charlie Craft in our trial .22 Mag Class with a 34. Good shooting gentlemen in some of the most challenging conditions I’ve seen yet.

Special thanks go out to Neil Truelove for showing up early, setting up targets, and staying late to help me clean up after the match. He was rewarded with a box of AutoMatch Ammo for his efforts. Thanks also go out to Thaxton Stafford who also stayed late to help – he received a NRA Fleece hoodie… Just sayin’ - it pays to stay late! Thank you Charlie for sharing your cart (again) and to Bob my assistant for bearing the cold and running the line.

On next match will be the 3rd Saturday in February, the 15th. Registration begins at 7:45 and the bullets start flying at 8:30. Go ahead and make plans to spend a day with us down at ERS – whether pulling triggers or just shootin’ the breeze - you’ll be glad you did…

Congratulations Gentleman!
Our December Match was short and sweet with only two rounds being played. Eleven participants shot 14 entries in this months “Fun Shoot”. Rascally Ron suggested we set the pig line with mini’s and the high score of the day was 38 made by 4 shooters; Jerry Porter and Ron Dixon in Squirrel, and Ron York did it twice – once in Semi-Auto Class and once in .17 Cal. Pistol Class.
After the short morning shoot, we moved on up to the clubhouse where Robby (with a Y) Lawrence provided a wonderful meal for our End of the Year Awards luncheon. Over $1750.00 worth of prizes and gift certificates were given back to 30 of our shooters in appreciation of their participation in this discipline. One of the high points of the prize give-a-way was Tanner Cagle, one of our youth shooters, whose excitement of winning a Turkey gave everyone a chuckle. Congratulations go to Robert DeMuth, for winning this year’s CZ 455 rifle. I would like to thank all ERS participants for another GREAT year.
On next match and first of 2014 will be the 3rd Saturday in January, the 18th. Why don’t you come on down, sit a spell, maybe even pull a trigger or two.

ERS November Shoot Report and Scores

November 16, 2013             Match Report

And That’s a Wrap…

 Our November shoot finalized another year on the books. Wow! This year has flown right on by. Our shooters were greeted with surprisingly warm temps and overcast skies as we wrapped up our Match scoring for the 2013 season. Seventeen participants shot 34 entries with a few more perfect scores this time around. In Squirrel Class - Tom Butner and Dallas Smith both collected a 40X, in BRS – Jerry Porter (welcome back Jerry- we missed you) gathered his 40X, and finally in Unlimited – Charlie Craft knocked them all down to earn his 40X. We had another new youth shooter today, 12 yr. old Kyle McArdle, shooting his first .22 ever. With great guidance from Jerry Porter and Ron Dixon, He faired very well – with His last round scoring 39 of 40, impressive indeed. Beware older gentlemen, these youth shooters are nipping at our heels!

Well, our own Ron York came through with his threat of Voodoo magic today, bringing out his Crazy Chicken Foot and, Yep, it worked. The hex he placed of young Coleman Drummonds caused #5 Ram not to fall despite a center mass solid hit. Mmm, Mmm,Mmm, both father and son were quite disappointed, we will just have to get after him next year. I did notice some sticky substance on the bottom of target #5 – surely Ron wouldn’t do that to some unsuspecting challenger, would he?

Our last shoot of the year is scheduled for the third Saturday in December, the 21st. It will be a “fun shoot” with some additional challenges and maybe a ham and turkey to be won. We are also having our awards luncheon this day, recognizing excellence in ERS participation for the year. We are giving away a CZ 455, Nikon Scope, Spotting scope, shooting bags, rifle bags, and many other goodies to show appreciation to our dedicated shooters we have had this year.

Special Thanks again to my super assistant Bob, and to Ron & Kyle for helping set-up,  to Thaxton, Dallas, Charlie, Ron, & Kyle for help me closed down and clean up after the shoot.

Why don’t you come on down, sit a spell, maybe even pull a trigger or two.
