Default RST Update

Kris from RST was kind enough to call yesterday and bring me up to speed on their present status with production and plans for the Southern so that I may inform the PGCA members. As you might expect they are having a difficult time with components, plenty of hulls but limited goods to put into them. When they do receive a shipment it is rarely the amount ordered nor adequate to meet their demands. They are being inundated with orders and probably could not keep up if they had the components. Interesting to note that part of the issue is that their shells are being ordered by anyone and everyone who has a need for shot shells and not just the vintage gunners. As we all know ammo is hard to find and with the help of Google folks are buying it wherever they can find it.

In terms of the Southern their attendance is an uncertainty as of right now and may remain so until the last minute. Obviously if they have no product or not an adequate amount they will not be there. On the other hand if components should show up Kris has made it clear that they will do everything they can to get something put together and make the trip. For those of you planning on filling your RST order, stocking up, or just buying RST ammo at the Southern you may have an issue. Wish I had better or more definitive news but the situation is what it is. I will put this on my calendar and touch base with Kris again in 30 days or so and report back. In the meantime place your order and you may get lucky, some folks have.

Whats the usual amount of shells needed for all "The Challenge" events ?

I assume 100 will get you thru the prelims and the main if I'm not mistaken .

But what about 10-16-20 Challenge events or will there be such animals this year ?

Bring a lot more than you think you need, is the best advice.

In normal years, RST is there and you can load up with them, but their attendance looks iffy at best this year.

The challenge events typically are 30 to qualify and another 30 if you make the team excepting the Parker/LC Smith challenge which is 50 to qualify and 30 for the event. It may take more if you are involved in a shoot off. Then there is the practice 5 stand, sporting clays course with a variety of events/gauges, and who knows what I am forgetting. Mills is right, bring more than you think you will need. There's a a lot of opportunity as it is a target rich environment. Our Editor probably shoots some 3 flats or more at the Southern.

I'd already calculated what I'd need for the course and Drakes . But I wanted an idea for the Challenge stuff and if there were just the open event or some smaller gauge Challenge events on wednesday or thursday . I think in the past you guys have done Parker vs Smith with 10 , 16 , 20 and I think 410 . Was just trying to get an idea for that .

I'd already calculated for the course events and a round at Drakes as well as 100 for the Challenge itself and was up to 1000 total . Maybe a sixty extra for the 10 , 16 and 20 will be sufficient .
