The Upper Tugela Branch held a CHASA Vlakteskiet and Tyro Pistol Shoot Report
The Upper Tugela Branch held a CHASA Vlakteskiet and Tyro Pistol Shoot on 22 February 2020. The idea and discussion regarding this event started around the break after our pistol shoot on 25 January 2020. Mike Richmond kindly offered his farm, Boschberg, to host the event.
Upper Tugela Chairman, Owen Geekie and committee members Danby Anderson and Jansen Webb, with the help of Mike Richmond set out the 4 ranges for the Vlakteskiet and the range for the Tyro Shoot as prescribed.
The Vlakteskiet consists of 4 ranges. Stage 1 has a Springbuck target at 230-250m and a Jackal target at 180-200m, shot in a sitting position with a crate as the rest. Stage 2 has an Impala target at 150-170m and a Baboon target at 180-200m, shot in a sitting position using a wooden dropper tripod as the rest. Stage 3 has a Warthog target at 100-120m, shot in a standing position with a freestanding tripod or bipod sticks as the rest. Stage 4 consists of 5 Steel Gongs, 200mm in diameter, at distances between 150 and 350m, shot in a prone position, with a harris bipod or a carpet covered block as a rest.
The Tyro Pistol Shoot has 3 targets, placed 3yards apart, edge to edge. The shooter fires from 10 yards lined up with the middle target. With a total round count of 24, Stage 1 consists of 3 strings of 2 rounds on each target, 5 seconds for each string. Stage 2 is 1 string of 6 rounds, 2 on each target, 8 seconds total. Stage 3 is 1 string of 12 rounds, 2 on each target for the 3 targets, the shooter reloads, then fires 2 more on each target, 20 seconds total.
We had 10 participants at the shoot, all 10 took part in the CHASA Vlakteskiet and 3 took part in the Tyro Pistol Shoot.
The Top scorers in the shoots were as follows:

There will be a mix of gong sizes and distances on each range. Make sure you know your 22LR’s trajectory up to 10 0m. Time limits apply to this exercise.
Each shooter will require 50 cartridges to complete the CHASA plus the gong shoot.
