Buckhorn Toys for Tots 11/10/2019

What a great day for doing anything outside, especially shooting related. After the frost burned off the temps went from just right to perfect! A good crowd overflowed the parking lot today at BGC as we put another Toys-for-Tots in the books. There was a couch and a half of shiny new gizmos and dood...

BGC 10/20/2019

Windy, chilly, drizzly. That's what we got to play in today. We had 12 shooters for singles, 14 for handicap and 7 of us had at the twins. The prevailing wind was in from behind us for the most part, flattening out the targets then there were those that for no apparent reason tried to climb over the...

BGC Labor Day Weekend Shoot - Day3

We wrapped up the beginning of the new target year today in nearly perfect conditions. It got a little toasty out there and the humidity seemed "elevated". I wasn't able to get to the club in time for the singles due to a prior commitment. Got things taken care of and loaded Ms. Mary and a plate of ...

BGC Labor Day Weekend Shoot Day 2

That was a lot of targets. 13,800 count for today! This old fat boy skipped the singles to be able to take a whack at all 500 doubles. There were several that did shoot all 600 today, bless their pea pickin' little hearts......! Today was well attended with 26 shooting the singles, 29 for the 1st 10...

BGC Labor Day Weekend Shoot - Day 1

Saturday August 31. Near perfect conditions for shooting today. Clear blue skies with ample sunshine that really lit up the white flyers. That's one excuse down. Temperatures started off in the upper 60s when shooting began. That's two excuses gone. Targets were set as good as they always are at Buc...

Buckhorn 8/4/2019

Hot, humid and nasty. Those were the conditions for shooters at BCG today. Dunno what the actual high was temp wise but the humidity was thick, real thick. Good crowd of shooters showed up. There were a couple of brand new Jrs shooting their very first registered targets. It's always a great thing w...

Buckhorn June 23, 2019

Rare June day in NC for sure, a high of 79, minimal breeze and light overcast. The humidity did kick in mid afternoon but it was tolerable. Decent crowd showed, many I'm sure getting some fine tuning (or major overhaul) in preparation for the Southern Zone coming up about a month from now. We had 22...

Buckhorn May 11 and 12 2019

BGC hosted two days of shooting over Mother's Day weekend. Pretty good crowd on Saturday and a few hardy souls on Sunday. The weatherman didn't cooperate much with damp, humid conditions both days. The only thing that kept it bearable was that the temps didn't get past the upper 70s. Target visibili...

Buckhorn April 14, 2019

Whew! Got that one in right under the wire! The weather man got one right for a change - forecast cloudy with the rain to start 3:00ish Sunday afternoon. The last pair of doubles was broken at 2:10 and the rain was washing the pollen off the vehicles in the parking lot at 2:30......... Karole got he...

Buckhorn 3/17/2019

The day started out on the chilly side, it was low 30ish when we pulled into the parking lot around 8:00 this morning. It stayed on the cool side for singles with a light breeze that played with the targets a little. The wind remained with us for the rest of the day making for a few interesting pres...

Buckhorn Birthday Bash 2/17/2019

Well now, a couple of us are a little older (I won't see anything in the 50s again) and a couple others will be in a matter of just a few days. Everyone needs to call, text or email the Curmudgeon and wish him Happy Birthday "sometime" this month. Also, when you get a chance give Morris a Big Ol' HB...

Buckhorn Jan 20, 2019

Entertaining. Yep that's the word for what went on today. Entertaining........... Pulled into the parking lot a little after 8:00 this morning. It was 57* at the house when I left and 51 hen I got there. The temp continued to drop from there. Then the wind kicked up, blowing steady in the teens with...

Buckhorn Dec 30, 2018

Buckhorn closed out the calendar year with a typical 300 target day on Dec 30. The weather man got it wrong and we're certainly glad he did. The forecasted rain failed to appear, it was overcast for singles then the sun poked his head out about the time caps started and the rest of the day was perfe...

Buckhorn 12/2/2018

Good crowd at BGC to play in the fog and damp conditions. Several youth shooters on hand along with some of the regular old farts. It appeared that everyone was having a good time as is always the case when the faithful gather. The first flight out in singles had an "interesting" time of it as the f...
