    Default Cape Town Field Target Shoot

    Hi All,

    Had an FT shoot in Cape Town yesterday. Small turnout with 9 shooters and from the scores it was obvious that the course was far too easy. Only had 15 targets to shoot at with distances ranging from 10 to 45 meters.

    Rifles used were GAMO CFX, AAT200, BAM50, AAS400, LG100.

    Very ntotable was that 4 of the shooters were youngsters who all posted very creditable scores - including the guy who shot with the GAMO CFX using a peep sight.

    Hope to have more targets soon and a more challenging course.

    Jaco -29 [Steyr LG100HP AGS/Leapers 4-16X56]
    Andre - 29 [BAM 50 Scope?]
    Guido - 28 [Steyr LG100 Tasco Custom]

    JACO the winner



    ANDRE runner up



    Wind was pumping across the course and made the 15 shots quite challenging.
    All 3 top shooters cleared the course, Guido taking 2 shots to drop 2 of the targets and Jaco and Andre both taking 2 shots on 1 target hence the tie.
    Jaco winning on a long 45 yarder in the shoot-out...well done!!!

    Thanks to Andre for organising...

    For all the shooters who did not hear about it..this was a very informal event and was more of an experiment.
    We were also shooting on a dairy / wine farm so we did not want to attract too many people and scare off the cows and wilt the grapes.

    yes..............but no matter how good the man is, one still need some sort of accuracy/consistency to get a full house.

    Well it's a little more complicated than that...[a Steyr won anyway]

    Firstly the wind was pumping and a .177 rifle clocking over 1000fps will hold an advantage over one doing 780fps. As I said this was a very informal experimental shoot only.

    Also the course was short..only 15 targets.
    Shoot a 40 shot course and any unregulated gun like the BAM will suffer from a poor power curve.

    Shooting from the standing position is difficult with guns like the BAM unless the stock is heavily modified.

    But it does really boil down to the shooter...even the best FT gun is only as good as the man behind the trigger.

    So what I am trying to say...especially to MOOSE!!...dont hassle so much about equipment reviews, polls, etc etc...try a few rifles, buy one that fits and that appeals to you and get shooting.
    Practice as much as you can and shoot in as many competitions as you can.
    Get to know your rifle intimately.

    Let's stop comparing rifles ad nauseum...let's rather compare shooting techniques and recommended accessories.

    I still think Steyrs are awesome BTW and am getting a BAM 51 to tinker with soon....

    just consider I can buy 4 or 5 BAMS for the price of one Steyr....!!! Scary stuff

    Not sure if the TH stock will be comfy for a LH shooter but should be easy enough to modify.
    The varnish needs to be stripped anyway cause it sux and the stock oiled...saw an oiled one and it looks and feels much nicer.
    Also the stocks are far too long for most shooters and need to be shortened by between 3 to 4 cms.
