Saturday 8 November 2014 was a busy day for the Airfield Shooting Club. The nice fall weather, combined with Boy Scouts and ASC Service and Zombie Match shooters had the parking lot and ranges congested. With 100+ personnel on the range, it was a great day of shooting and more importantly, a VERY SAFE day of shooting.
The debut of the “Zombie Match” was very successful, having 10 participants executing the challenging course of fire (CoF) in the five various categories. Given that this was the first time
executing this new CoF, there were some “teachable moments”—such as adjusting the firing line forward so that participants did not have to shoot under the rails on the 100-yard line. As
expected, a wide variety of rifles were seen—ranging in calibers and models. One individual brought three teenage “zombie hunters” out to
practice their survival skills for the apocalypse.
