Rifle Tube Update

Rifle Tube Update from reopening on July 23, 2016 –  January 31, 2017

Different caliber/types recorded as fired: 99
Rounds recorded as fired: 22,597

Grains of projectiles recorded as fired:        2,071,637
Pounds of projectiles recorded as fired:      295.95     (Average of approximately 47.5 pounds per month. Add approx. 15% for non recorded shots = approx. 52 pounds per month.

Next best guess at a scheduled clean out of the backstop at approximately
2500 pounds of projectiles in the backstop would be in the Spring of 2020)

Air Filters changed 10 times.

Camera antenna hit twice, cut the cable.
Camera Power cable hit and cut once
Target holder sticks shot 3 time each
Both Chrono Light mounts hit at least twice

There is an update to the Bullseye Camera Target Manager Software. Be sure to update the one on your phone as it allows you to record screen shots of the targets at each round.

Have You Ever Wondered About All That Safety “Stuff” Surrounding Guns?

Do you get frustrated with all those pesky safety rules when you shoot your gun at the range or take it hunting? Do you dislike having to remember all those safety practices drilled into you when you took a training course?

Did you ever take a training course? Maybe this guy should have!! THIS is why safety is so important when you carry, handle or shoot a loaded gun.

Rifle Tube Refresh Update!

Shooting room 8-16-2016 (Medium)
First!  Thanks again for all of you who have helped on the rifle tube refresh.

I have done an orientation with about 70 % of the qualified rifle tube shooters at the club and in the tube so far.  If you have not done it yet, then please get down to one of my planned orientations and let me go over with you.  If you have schedule issues, then please contact me and I will set up to meet you.   I still have not had time to get the online stuff written and set up.

We have had a lot of shooters through since we opened Saturday 7/23/2016.  As of Tuesday, 8/30/2016,  members had recorded 159 different firearms used in the tube.  (hopefully that is all of them being recorded)  I am working on getting the totals of the number of rounds and weights into a spread sheet.

We have had both the target holding sticks shot once and one shot hit on the upper bullet deflector and one shot hit the roof of the tube in front of the antenna for the camera network.  ???  The west chronograph light frame has been shot once and pieces are stuck in the wall insulation just past the end of it.

Target Picturre 8-16-16 (Medium)The camera has really been a big hit with most shooters.  We have really found it to be useful at the 25 yard line and in the room when we did a couple of tube qualifications.  I installed an additional power plug and a Wi-Fi extender over the inside of the tube door and now we have really good signal all the way to the parking lot.  It will show up as BullseyeCam112057_Ext and uses the same password as the base Wi-Fi: 
(ccgcTUBE
) when you go to connect to the camera system.

Clean and dirty filtr 8-22-16 #1 (Medium)The original two air filters completely blocked up in a month. We had expected the first set to block early due to all new dusty rubber and the powdered chemical being loose at the beginning.    I changed them Monday, 8/22/2016, and the new ones are already black on the bottom   We may eventually need to change to a four filter array if they keep blocking up so fast.  We have the space, just a half day of work to remove the existing one and make the new one.

Rubber 8-28-2016 #1 (Medium)
The rubber has not moved nearly as much as I feared and does not show a real need so far to be shoveled or pushed back up.  There are the two side hot spots and one in the center (as quite a few people put a target there) that show up but are not big pits yet..

This is a unique rifle tube  and backstop and vent system and we will be tweaking  things for a while.  Let me know if you notice anything that needs work or to be changed.  If you don’t let us know about it, we can’t fix or improve it.

I put a new record book in for ONLY guests to sign in and to record any damage or maintenance that needs to be done.

We have a lot of little things still to do when we get time in the future.  If you want to do any more just let me know when and what you can help do.
