Friendship items of interest

Postby 52Bore » Fri Jun 16, 2017 10:14 pm

Here are a few photos of some rifles that caught my attention.
Opening weekend was the most crowed I've seen Friendship in over a decade, maybe two. The main road (Hwy 62) was bumper to bumper everytime I looked.

Cute little 32's.

Nice H&H double rifle. Shot in the percussion double match on Sunday afternoon.

Even an AR muzzleloader - I had to ask if I could shoot it at least once (I don't even own a black gun).

If 2 kids weren't in college, this one would have come home with me. Shot some LR with my Rigby one day.

Are those .32's made by Dale Story? Looks like the locks he used in the blackpowder books I have.

I'm sorry I do not know the answer, they were mule ear locks. Just thought they were cute. $500

You guys desperately need to go to Friendship if you're stuck on the 32's.

I really wish i could go at least once but it is just not in the cards for me yet.

Do they shoot 32s in matches or have special matches for small calibers?

The most popular match on the rifle line is the small bore silhouettes - 40 cal and under. To shoot this match, one usually has to register the day or two prior as each relay is filled - usually all day which is 11-12 relays. The SB silhouette range can handle 3 shooters at a time as it has 3 banks of animals ranging from 20-120 yards, I believe.
