Shot clean match with my Kirst babies and HRA Henry!
« on: February 02, 2020, 10:13:57 PM »
When to a River City Regulators match in Davis, CA and had an awesome time.  Took my .45 Kirst/Piettas (Saber River 1860 and NMA 1858), and my HRA 011 Henry .44-40.  Their matches often have farther and more challenging targets than the standard 24x24 pistol plate at 3-5 yards.  In fact, one stage had a 8"  diamond, heart. spade, club set at from 7 ton 10 yards for pistol.  Another had small 12" cowboys at 25 yards for bonus rifle (shooting from a spring loaded buckboard seat!).  I shot a clean match with all guns, and even got 9 out of 10 bonus 25 yard cowboys on the bouncing buckboard! 

All guns performed awesome!  best match I have had in years....

That sounds like the kinda match I "grew up on". The 3 yard targets can get boring. The rifle targets are now where the pistol targets used to be. I have no sympathy for those that whine that the targets are too far out.
