Default End of an era

Well, after 19 years it had to happen. Our targets have always remained out. Once, we had one nicked, but word got out and it was delivered on the doorstep two days later. This time though, some biscuit has let loose with a rimfire on 8 of our targets at close range .....amazing how these targets are deformed by other than an air-rifle ! So, mindless hooliganism has at last reached us out in the countryside of Norway. This is indeed a sad day. The targets have been beaten back into shape, with a few spot welds to fill in the worst of the dents .... however,in future it looks like we'll be turning up 1/2 earlier to lay the course out

we have had a couple of targets at the club shot with live rounds, soon fixed, but not the 15+ plus that we had stolen, the one with 6 various holes in, now in the process of being remade, I think I will start at 7mm for the smallest this time.
