When the rain finally stopped, the sun shines on the 200 yard range. The chaps discuss where the last round might have gone. The 200 yard range is always popular.

Beautiful weather and a cracking turnout. Dave waits to shoot his 7.5x55 Schmidt Ruben. Ryan shooting my AR15.

The bit you're trying to hit is the big white square with the black circle. Take aim... fire! Good shot sir!
