After a busy week at Escapade, let’s get together for a fun, friendly shooting competition!

 

 

This HOP will give you the opportunity to participate in safe gun-handling skills, in a competitive, yet friendly, environment.

There will be two classes of competitions: revolver and semi-auto.

 

 

You may choose revolver, semi-auto, or both. A prize will be presented to the best shooter in each of these two competitions.

 

 

· Arrive at range

· Safety briefing

· Revolver warm-up

· Revolver competition

· Semi-auto warm-up

· Semi-auto competition

· Prizes awarded

Schedule subject to change.

 

Please no first-time shooters. You must know how to shoot. Please bring your own revolver and/or semi-auto.

Hi Lisa,

 

I have a replica of an 1858 Remington New Army Service made by Pietta - see

 

http://www.taylorsfirearms.com/pietta-1860-army-revolver-1861-navy-revolver-parts.html

 

for the design.

 

See:

 

Instead of having cartridges (some refer to as bullets), it is hand-loaded by measuring the powder and dropping it into the cylinder, followed by a felt wad, which is tamped down, followed by a lead ball, which is also tamped down. Then the primers, which are caps that fit over a steel nipple are pushed on and the entire cylinder is put back into the frame - - then it is ready to fire. It can take 15 minutes just to load the 6 rounds.
