Here are more pictures of our first real shoot. It was an informal plinking session over at Dave's house in Dayton, Ohio, USA. We had fun but it sure was cold. (low teens) Guess you have to be crazy or addicted or a little of both to shoot your air guns in this kind of weather.

C.M.O. Air Gun Club

This is Dave Baker at whose house we had our meeting. He said he felt honored to have first shoot of the new club.
He is a relative newcomer to air guns, but loves the sport and really is excited about the club. He has a new site called "Air Gun Fun for ALL". There will be a link on the links page to his site.

We really had some fancy targets. NOT!!! Dave drug out a piece of plywood, we stapled some old CD's to it, put a box with old phonebooks in it, of course lined up some pop cans to mangle and WALA we were ready to shoot.

We shot for the better part of 3 hours with coffee breaks scattered a couple of times. Time sure does fly when the "boys" with their toys get together to play, LOL!

A closeup of the CD's after a couple rounds of shooting. Pay no attention to the accuracy. LOL. But look how well the CD's stood up to the abuse.

Sheridan

Don Clark, out of Richmond Ind.
Shooting a Sheridan "C" model .20 cal. with a custom (his own) stock. It addresses the concerns of shooters who cannot afford a big expensive
air gun. He got a good group at 35 yards with 5 pumps.
He stated that he wsa going to try to shoot at the next few matchesHope he will be shooting the fun shoot with the CMO, and the F/T shoot too!!!

Here is C.M.O.'s unofficial mascot, Ruby. She is Dave's new beagle puppy. She "helped" Thom with the measuring string. He had to instruct her a bit on where he wanted it,

DUELING IHZ61A's

Isn't is amazing how we get excited over a new air gun? Ray and Thom had gotten these earlier this week and had to try them out. I was really impressed with accuracy. I oredered on also.

Ray on left and Dave on right check out their targets after the first round of shooting. We were surprised how well the CD's stood up to the punishment especially in this cold weather. We will use them again for a special target match.

SHOT OF THE DAY was awarded to Dave when he took his first shot with Ray's IZH61. He admitted a bit of luck for sure, but that little gun sure does shoot straight. Can't get much more in center then that. By the way Dave quit after that shot. :-)
