3] Dallas Baker informed the membership of how plastic sheet rock anchors [4 x 6 x 8 x 7/8”] could be used as snap caps. He demonstrated how his 1911 style pistol will feed them through the magazine.
4] Ron Pieracini requested a ‘firing line be painted’ at the outdoor range. He told of having set up after moving a bench to the front edge of the concrete apron. After some firing another shooter set up on a bench without moving his bench forward. Ron thought having a line would prevent someone from shooting from behind another shooter. Piette will email membership reminding them of sportsmanship and safety issues. Baker commented that 1st one present is the ‘chief’ range officer.
