    Just a reminder that this is to CSFTA rules. For those that don't know a summary is below.

    SCORING
    1. Scoring is two points for a knockdown, one point for hitting metal, zero points for a miss.

    SHOOT RULES
    1. The course will consist of 20 targets (min range 8 yards, max range 45 yards), set out in 20 lanes. Each lane will have two shooting positions, each marked by a peg securely fixed at ground level. Lanes should be set out either in a straight line or a horseshoe shape -shooting outwards!

    3. The pegs must be placed behind and a maximum of 1 yard back from the firing line. The competitor’s trigger finger must not cross the firing line. Competitors will take one shot from each peg, with a part of their body touching the peg, a peg attached to a tree DOES NOT make the tree an extension of the peg unless explicitly stated at the shoot briefing on the day.

    4. All targets must have white face plates and red kill zones. From each peg out to a distance of 8 -35 yards at least 50% of 40mm paddle must be visible from the Prone, Kneeling & Standing position (if applicable). From 35 –45 yards 100% of 40mm paddle must be visible. All 25mm paddles must be 100% visible. There must be a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 8, 25mm targets. All other targets will have 40mm kill zones. The 25mm targets must be placed at no more than 35 yards distant and must not be used in conjunction with forced standing shots. Forced standing and kneeling shots must not exceed 35 yards. Targets over 35 yards must be able to be taken from the prone position. Once the shoot has commenced, there will be no re-siting of targets. Competitors will be informed of the distances to the shortest and longest targets on the course, but not of their location.

    7. Time limit is 2 minutes per lane per competitor. The clock will commence as soon as the shooter ‘eyes’ the scope. The second shot in the lane must be fired within the 2-minute limit. If the second shot has not been fired within this limit, the shooter must discharge his/her rifle safely into the ground and score the target as a miss.

    8. There will be no sitting at all. The only acceptable use for a beanbag will be during kneeling shots.

    9. Adjustments to equipment must be made on the plinking range. There must be no adjustments to rifles, scopes, stock/butt hook attachments on course. Neither should illuminated reticles be switched on/off.

    10. The use of bipods and/or any external shooting aids (e.g. shooting sticks) is not permitted. This also includes any form of external range finding apparatus or laser dot type sights.

    As you can see unlike some formats there's not many rules, there might be the odd 15mm kill thrown in for fun.

    Having not shot with you before, am I missing something re start / sign on times? Do you shoot serially from peg 1, hence sign on being open to 12:00, or is it a "shotgun" (!) simultaneous start, in which case...

    It's the former - sign on when you arrive, grab a partner, and start at gate 1. Should be a good fun day - hope to see you there!

    For anyone using the what3words system to get to the shoot (LOVE that idea, by the way!), then using burns.octagonal.meatballs will get you there...

    Just want to say thank you to all at today’s Bulldog Bash.
    It was my first Bulldog, but won’t be my last!
    I traveled a long way to shoot and was made to feel most welcome by all.
    A great course and I look forward to shooting there again.
