 -  To make your trip to the firing line easier, consider getting a /font>  "Geezer" cart instead of carrying all your gear by hand!

Mac Sports folding wagon from various sources (link new for 2022) - click here

 AS OF 2021 - BRING YOUR STAPLER!


  (fired and unfired targets fit below the benches - see photo below)

You may want to bring a chair - slow fire takes the full 10 minutes here!

You may want to bring a clamp for your brass catcher and a strap to keep your gunbox from blowing over (Camp Perry WIND is legendary!)
- OR

$100 - Contact: Ted Reineke edwardreineke@icloud.com 

Starting in 2023 - FIXED FIRING LINE!

 

Below shows prior to 2023- When going from "long line" (slow fire) to "short line" (timed and rapid fire) you will need to move all your gear
and your targets from 50 yard line to 25 yard line!!  Your cart must FIT BETWEEN the benches ("geezer carts" do fit!)

 -  Bring fishing gear?! - Port Clinton is the "Walleye Capitol of the World!"

Q: MORE WORDS OF ADVICE

The following hints are offered by our local "veterans" to help you:

Don't be afraid to ask questions of anyone standing around!

Know your target # (some shooters write in on their shooting hand!) so you don't crossfire
- your shooting point may not "line up" with your target as you might expect!

Load your magazines before going to the firing line!

ECIs must be in guns EVEN WHILE IN THE BOXES!

"We will give you time to adjust your equipment"
If you are not ready, announce it LOUDLY before your line officer raises his green paddle!

"Invest" in a calculator from the Dollar Store if you are "mathematically challenged"
- CELL PHONES MUST BE MUTED on the firing line!

KNOW YOUR RULES - especially regarding ALIBIS!!

If the targets turn away before they should (or don't turn away when they should) raise your hand and speak up (before the next string!)
  Unless shooters object, the tower is not going to "automatically" offer a refire if there has been a timing malfunction!

If targets don't face when they should ("significantly" more than 3 second delay) and then suddenly face, don't fire - ask for a refire!

Check that YOUR shot values have been written correctly!

Have respect for the shooter you are scoring - WRITE recognizable and NEAT SHOT VALUE NUMBERS!

THANK THE VOLUNTEERS - range personnel are out there, in whatever weather, for 8-10 hours
(and if things run late they might not even get lunch!)
