Hope it goes well - sounds fun but a bit too far for me to go!

Thanks for posting James. I see you mention slug, but can those without slug on their tickets still take part in parts of the competition?

Yes you can, there are ( at this moment in time) 2 slug stages only ( there wont be more than that)

While we dont have a specific class for "non slug users" we can generate a separate set of scores ( for fun only ) that dont include those 2 stages.

And isnt it about time you applied for a variation!!!

for clarity- all detachable magazine guns go into open class, will edit post.

or i would if i could edit it.... ?

The question about slug wasn't for me James, as I already have it :), but wanted to clarify in case others were wanting to come, so it's good to see that folks don't need to have slug to take part.
I'm going to check my diary and hopefully make it along to one of the days. Should be fun.
Unfortunately you can't go back and edit posts after something like 20mins after originally writing it.

Is there the option to hire shotguns from the armoury?

Author:  JSHarris [ Tue Jun 28, 2016 8:30 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Cottesloe Heath Challenge 2016 - NRA Shotgun League

Yes ( i think), but only 3 shot ones. There are 2 Benelli Super Novas and 2 Mossberg 500s lurking somewhere....

please contact the Armoury direct to confirm details, there is a special category for 3 shot shotguns as well so its a great opportunity to have a day out shooting something different !
