Ah, I like the VZ grips! Grippy!

Ours is 7 yards and the pins are about 18" apart on a wood table top. The top is about 30" deep and the pins are placed in the center. The toughest part is tipping over a pin then you have to hit it while it's flat on the table.

Spitty, you need to make a road trip to our match next month - ammo is on me...

Rusty, how can you pass that up? Hurt him! Maybe he won't be able to buy another gun for a month!

What's the date? I'll have to see if I can make that happen and practice.

Think I can trust him? He might give me some weak handload that won't get the job done.

They ever have them on the weekends? That's nearly 6 hours one way and I've got to work the next day.

How do you find them in your area?

I have been looking and can't find any. They sound like a blast.
