llowa Irregulars and the Milan Rifle Club invite you and your Buffalo shooting friends to our October 14, 2023 Long-Range Buffalo Shoot. As you can see by the images below, the Milan Rifle Club offers a picturesque and beautiful range that is perfect backdrop for a Buffalo Shoot – a herd of 33 Buffalo graving on a grassy field. We’re also one of the few clubs using reactive targets – reactive in the sense that the Buffalo targets fall over when hit. To give a sense of what to expect watch this short video taken during our May 2023 Buffalo Shoot by clicking here or on the video link below
One more quick thing. While not required, if you plan to attend our Oct 14, 2023, Buffalo Shoot we would appreciate it if you would RSVP by clicking hereif you’ve not done so already. We’re just trying to get a sense of how many shooters might be here.
No worries if you change your mind and can’t come. Likewise, if you don’t register and you decide you want to shoot, come on over anyway (or RSVP at that point).
RT invites everyone to “Come Fly With Us” at our October 15th monthly match. RT is the Match Director for October and has put together a match unlike any other. He refers to it as Fall Round-up Lite; others euphemistically refer to it as The Carnival.
Refer to it as you will, but make no mistake, it’ll be fun! RT is pulling out several of our non-traditional targets for us to shoot. Think in terms of articulated cowboy target, can throwers, the Medusa, pistol knockdowns, rifle knockdowns, and lots of birds.
It’ll be a fun way to begin bringing our season to a close. Take a look at the short video below and your eye out for the stages which will be published in the week leading up to the match.
Other dates of note:
October 14: Buffalo Shoot
Nov 4: Wild Bunch Match
Nov 5: Cowboy Match – our final match of the year.
OK, it’s time to make the call so here it is: TUESDAY NIGHT, SEPT 26 PRACTICE IS ON! We’ll just take our chances that it might sprinkle a little here and there. If nothing else, it’s another opportunity to have a grilled bratwurst and chat among ourselves. Our treat.
While you’re here, we’ve a few target stands to pick up from last weekend’s match. The steel and shotgun targets are all put away.
Here is a link to Popcorn Kelly’s latest video. It contains a few videos and photos taken during Illowa Irregulars September 2023 Match, a hint about our October monthly match, as well as some very preliminary information concerning a potential 2024 Illinois State Championship.
This post is a re-published version of an earlier post in which October was erroneously mentioned as a likely state match month, when it should have been August. This is the corrected version.
