  • Camp Perry Shooting

    Jester sent me this photo and I thought it was worth sharing.

    Spotter.jpg

    For those who have never shot a big competition like Camp Perry, this photo shows a shot spotter (or locator) disk. When being used, the disk has a plastic spindle that goes through its center. When you're shooting longer distances, you can't see your bullet holes in the target. At big competitions there are guys in the pits downrange who pull the target down after each shot and stick the plastic spindle with the spotter disk into the bullet hole in the target. Shooters can then look through their spotting scope and see where their shot hit the target.

    The above spotter disk has a hole in it and is missing its spindle. Jester's son fired a shot and it hit in the X ring. The spotter disk was moved to mark his shot. The next shot fired made the hole in the disk to the left of the center spindle hole. The spotter disk was then moved to mark the new hole. The third shot fired by Jester's son knocked the spindle out of the hole in the disk and the disk fell off the target. The guys working the pits grabbed the spotter disk and gave it to Jester's son when they returned from pit duty.

    That's a 3 shot group fired prone with a sling, out of a competition legal service rifle chambered in 5.56/.223, and it measures under an inch.








    Those three shots were from the 600 yard line.

      Thughes, Jester, Hamchu...... I'm not sure if Tony is on the forum or not. Not sure if I missed anyone else.

        oh thankfully I misunderstood the Title of this thread

        I thought that brother Jester might have been "offed"

          I pity the fool who tries to do something bad at Perry. During the matches it's probably one of the safest places on the planet. There are more armed patriots wandering around Perry during the matches than on an active military base.

          actually, the only people armed on a military base are the MP's !

            The hardware seems to be concentrated on two necks.

                    Willie,
                    no hardware for me, struck out for first time.
                    Thugs boner in Garand match kept pushing his gear into my FP and distracting me. Above that I got crushed by the heat and dehydration.

                    BTW We have change Ashley’s name to Grace as in Grace under fire (literally). She has one heck of a story to share!!!!

                      So that's your excuse? I'm still pissed about that bogus"insufficient rounds" call for my rapid.

                    Willie, speaking of boners, ONG set up a full forward base across the street from the training area beginning Thursday. Friday through today they were running small arms full auto with blanks. Oh Hamchu was rock hard yesterday and today as they had base guard bunkers running M60’s in full auto and you could hear it all over the base

                      I woke up to the dulcent song of that M60 this morning, it was nice background music to break camp by.

                    Of course all this stuff happens the year I'm not there.

                    Reminds me of this story:
