Sitting in the club house eating lunch. Thinking about the 45 match coming shortly. Cans of powder and primers sitting there if anyone needs some. No masks no worries. Well a couple of worries. Is Mel going to kick your butt? Are Chris's 22 scores going to be enough to carry it for him? Simple worries. Hard to believe that was so recent.The good old days 20180635

I think I know about half the people in that pic. One of these days I will have to make it up to Oregon to shoot.

I always liked shooting in Oregon. The calming drizzle was always awesome to shoot in. First place I shot 890 with the 45.....Good ol’ days!

The picture could be Oak Harbor (Ohio) or any one of several clubs I've shot at. 

What is the one thing that stands out in the pic?

Colt711,

I guess that you mean, apart from Chris Alto who is relatively younger, all of the others are probably "Seniors".

Whilst I am a relative Newbie, it is very evident that there are very few younger shooters engaged with Bullseye. Despite the excellent efforts of Roddy Toyota, Ralph Smith and others in Oregon, the number of Bullseye shooters seems to be dwindling and I roughly estimate that only about 1 in 5 are under 60.

As for the weather, Jon, I'm no expert, but during the past few years I have not seen a significant amount of rain during the Outdoor Season (but the past 2 months of the winter has been very wet on the coast - luckily I have been away).

Now WA - that is another story!

The one thing that stands out is there is powder and bullets just laying there out in the open without hordes of people throwing cash around trying to buy them.

If I remember correctly they were all odd ball rifle powders from Mel's stock.

Radjag,

You are right. We came to FL for the winter in '01, and moved permanently in '03. Then I could shoot in BE matches 3 weekends a month and a practice the 4th. Since then the matches slowly dried up. there may be 1 now. Physical restrictions now preclude my getting out early enough to get to matches. 

I started shooting in '68. Our sport was referred to as "pistol shooting" and competitions were just "pistol matches". As the years passed it became "bullseye" then Precision pistol". Interestingly we didn't garner enough respect to hold onto a name!?

Now I don't even know where to find a listing of matches!
