For some unknown reason in the South of Ireland, target rifle in general, appears concentrate on two types of rifle disiplins in particular..
Benchrest: first offical match was held at Johnstown, New York State, USA in 1947. F Class: first offical match in Canada 1989.
On the other hand Prone target rifle shooting, dates from the latter part of the 19th century and the International matches held at Bisley and Creedmoor USA.
Littery thousands around the world take part in some type of 3 position shooting. Prone position with perhaps the largest interest at National and International level in competitions for TR & SR disiplins.




I am thinking about getting involved in the Target Rifle discipline. Have been looking at the aforementioned site and looking at kit. I have a sling and Jacket, so Just really need the rifle and sights ;) . This would interest me far more than FTR or F-Class. Maybe when my eyesight is fecked, I might do this. The thing is, would I be in a very small pool of shooters doing this? I was in a very small pool with the olympic pistol discipline. :(

"1903 National Match Springfield"

Seeing as you have the sling and jacket, go the whole hog and try 'open class' with target sights (National Match style target shooting.
Top off with $40 ebay, set of early Steel Layman front and rear receiver peep sight/early Redfield 70 sight.
Modern Williams sight -5D-03/A3 Receiver Peep Sight Springfield 1903A3 aprox the same- $40

Getting ready for Sunday

Installed the Parker hale 5C and front FS22 aperture. Took the rifle out to check zero. First round hit 4mins high and 3mins left. Adjusted the sight. Next round 10x. Next round, right beside it. Next 5 walking all over the black.
Packed up and figured it was just me, flinching or something. Checked the rifle later. The FS22 was loose in the dovetail. Bugger. I will need to resolder it back I place. So back on with the issues sights. Glad I checked it
