We stopped by Beikirch's during are trip to Rochester, New York. Beikirch's is a regional distributor of shooting related items, to include reloading supplies.
No 700X, Universal Clays, or Clays. All the powders that were on my shopping list.
W209 primers were not in stock.
The only lead for sale was Lawrence 7 1/2's ($24).
A shipment of lead was scheduled for next week. I was told the shipment would normally last 3-4 weeks, but recently sold within seven days.
The were selling Estate shells for $54.90 per case.
I attended an excellent sporting clays shoot (Spring Deuce) held at Rochester Brooks in Rush, New York.
An annual shoot.
We started shooting on Friday and stopped on Sunday.
$210 for 350 targets.
The main event targets were some of the best ever. Something for everyone.
A volunteer run club!
The club is scheduled to host the NSSA 2009 U.S. Open.
Looking at the fields I see they have the same problem they had from the last time they hosted the shoot.
The soil on a number of fields is 4-5" inches higher than the pads.
During and after a heavy rain your standing in water when shooting, as the water does not drain off the pads/fields.
Two days after it ceased raining at the last Open, water was still well above my ankles when on the pads. Not what I expected for a U.S. Open!
We went to the local Walmart and purchased rubber boots prior to going out. A shooter from Vermont borrowed my boots when I got off the field!
I would think some type of tractor with a blade could remove the excess soil.
I'm told the club ordered a second PAT Trap.
The PAT Trap they have now was purchased used (rebuilt) and is suppose to be either the first or second PAT Trap ever sold by the company.
The club is holding a registered trap shoot this Sunday.
