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.

March 15th, 2014                                               Match Report

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.

October 19, 2013      Match Report

October Outing…

 Wow! This year has flown right on by. Fall temps fell, making our October Match a pleasant time to enjoy the great outdoors. Our attendance was down a bit from the opening of deer hunting season and maybe a little from the cool front moving through causing a few light showers. We had 14 participants shoot 21 entries with only one 40X for the day which was made by Ron York II in BRS. Charlie Craft lead the Squirrel Class with a 37, Ed Pueschel lead the Semi-Auto Class with a 35, Charlie also won the Unlimited Class with a 39, and Donald Drummonds rounded out the top scorers in .17 Cal Class. One of our youth shooter’s, Coleman Drummonds, squeaked by (again) our reigning champion, Ron York, and is really keeping the pressure on him for this year’s .17 Cal Class champion.

Because of the light turnout, I was able to shoot several times, and broke in a newly assembled Custom 10/22 for the Semi-Auto Class (SAC). Don’t know yet if I’m going to be competitive with the bolt action guns yet but having a lot of fun trying. Dave Chaney was with us today and shot well in our Pistol Class (yes, I said pistol). He scored a 26 in Iron Sights and a very respectable 33 in Scoped, all of this from a 12” barrel.

We also broke in a new spotter, Clay, one our club members – while he was working off some work hours. I hope he had a good day; I was very appreciative of his service in setting up, resetting targets and gathering up the targets at the end of our day. Thanks also go out to Bob, my assistant, to Charlie, Thaxton, & Dave for hanging out to the end and cleaning up the bench area. I believe a couple “Free Shoots” were given away.

Our next shoot is scheduled for November 16th, the third Saturday of the month beginning at 8:30. Why don’t you come on down, sit a spell, maybe even pull a trigger or two. There will be some fun fellowship and fine shootin’ – we’ll be lookin’ for ya…

September ERS Match Report and Scores

CHEROKEE GUN CLUB / EXTREME RIMFIRE SILHOUETTE

September 21st, 2013          Match Report

Fun, Fun, but not much Sun…

 Our September Match found cooler temps and overall good shooting conditions as reflected by the scores. We started out dry, then turned damp with occasional sprinkles, then the rain settled in. We had a good turnout of 18 participants shooting 29 entries with Bench Rest Scope (BRS) carrying the largest load with ten shooters but only having one perfect 40X made by Ron York II. We also had a return visit by James Pueschel (grandson of Ron York) shoot a very respectable score of 33 in our Youth Class of BRS. Five others shot 40X’s – Tom Butner and David Dockery in Squirrel Class, Robert Demuth in Unlimited Class with his Remington 40X, and father /son team of Donald and Coleman Drummonds in .17 Cal Class. Donald also cleared a bank of mini chicks when his perfect round.                                                                                                                     I spoke with Ron York Sr. (who shot a 39 today) about this young whippersnapper (Coleman Drummonds) nipping at his heels in .17 Cal Class, he said he was going home today and rounding up some chicken bones… apparently he plans on bringing some VooDoo magic against his young nemesis. All I can say is let the best (young) man win! Thanks Ron for keeping it fun.

Special thanks go out (again) to Ron Dixon for being there early and staying late to gather targets in the rain, to Charlie Craft for staying late and sharing his cart, to Bob Smoller (my faithful assistant) for running the line & registration so I can shoot, to Dallas & Thaxton for helping clean up.

It may have been a little wet today but it sure didn’t dampen our spirits or hinder the fun we had today shootin’ little bitty targets, way on out there. Why don’t you come on out next time and join us for some fun shootin’ and fine fellowship at our next match – scheduled the third Saturday of next month, October 19th. I’m sure you will be glad you did.

August Match Report and Scores

CHEROKEE GUN CLUB / EXTREME RIMFIRE SILHOUETTE

August 17th, 2013     Match Report

Awesome August…

 We had an Awesome August match with a great turnout of 22 participants shooting 29 entries, but two things made it Awesome. First, we had three youth shooters along with their families, and second, we had Awesome temperatures (70 degrees) in this middle of the “Dog Days” of August. I had a cart full of young ladies bounding up and down the 200 yard range as we reset targets – fun, fun, fun!!! The winds were tricky and challenged the shooters in their quest for a perfect score. In fact, we only had two 40X’s today scored by the father & son team of Donald & Coleman Drummonds (again) in our .17 Cal. Class. Ten year old, Coleman, has set his eyes (and scores) on the prize of .17 Cal. Champion for this year and has even taunted his competitor, Ron York Sr., with a comment on today’s 40X  scorecard – Ha-Ha – Ron York… All I can say is the gauntlet has been cast down, may the best man win!

Several new shooters tried their hand at our little metal targets… 8 year old Hope Barrett (along with cheerleading section of Father and two sisters), Mr. Brian Garrett and his 9 year old daughter - Brittany , and all shot well. Ms. Felicia Juliano (from Texas) was back, and shot Mike Adams Buffalo Scope rifle very well with 35 targets dropping - and she wasn’t using a rear rest! Great Shooting young lady!!!

For the rest of us old folks, we tried hard for that elusive 40x and came up a bit short, but we sure had some fun trying anyway. Why don’t you come on out next time and join us for some fun shootin’ and fine fellowship at our next match – the third Saturday of next month, September 21st. I’m sure you will be glad you did.

July Match Report and Scores

CHEROKEE GUN CLUB / EXTREME RIMFIRE SILHOUETTE
July 20th, 2013         Match Report
Summertime, Summertime, Sum-Sum-Summertime…
 A lighter, but not unexpected, crowd turned out for our July match. Can you say HOT, HUMID, & STICKY? By 10:00 a.m. we were sweating… (and not from the shooting!) Anyway, we had 15 participants come out and shoot 26 entries. The Squirrel Class dominated the scoreboards with the only three 40X’s to be had. Even “Old Faithful” – Ron York let one slip by in .17 Cal Class… “some days you’re the dog, some days you’re the hydrant” I guess. Team Tom Butner/Robert Demuth both picked 40X’s, and Ron Dixon scored one with his “Lucky Dog” gun won in December – also his first in Squirrel class. Good Shootin’ guys!
Mike Adams, a shooter from the Buffalo runners, brought his niece, Felicia Juliano, and gave our Bench Rest Scope guys a serious run for the money. Yep, I hate to say it, but Ron Dixon, Ron York II, and Neil Truelove gathered their “Beaten by a Girl” pins. (I’m sure glad I didn’t shoot that class today! I’ve collected enough of those myself). Pop up thundershowers finished our day around 2:00 but did not dampen our efforts to have some fun down here at Extreme Rimfire Silhouette. I’d like to invite all of you to come by, sit a spell, and pull some triggers – we might just make a “regular” out of you…
Special Mention: A few of our regulars – Jerry Peck, Richard Pope, and Walt Hodges’s wife, are recovering from surgery - please keep them in your prayers for a fast and complete recovery so they may come back soon…
Thanks to all the guys for help in set-up and break down, your help is always greatly appreciated.
Our next shoot is August 17th, the 3rd Saturday of the month. Come on by for some fun fellowship and fine shootin’ here at ERS…
