Any of you experienced gunners shooting any helice? A local club (1 hr away) opened up a stand for it. I'm excited to try it. Think it will match my shooting style. Probably just humble me.

Since no replies so far, I’ll add this...have shot it a couple times and it is challenging. Tight choke and a good point is your friend. If the cap falls out of the ring, a chip means nothing..Fun game for a quick and accurate pointer.

Place in Eastern Pa throws tournaments.

I’ve been around a lot of Helice shooting. The new self loading machines with voice release make it practical for a club to set up a ring. Shot the early ZZ birds back in the 80’s when the wings were metal with a plastic cap. Was pretty slow when runners had to reload machines after every third shot. Not so with the new equipment.

No, just put it up for those who don't know about Helice....However, you perked my interest and I may go and shoot it....Sounds like a plan grin

An FYI:

The Penna and United States helice championship is July25 and 26 at Keystone Shooting Park in Dalmatia, Pa.

30 spots available for both.

I have tried it and if it was local to me that's all I'd shoot. Had a ball, 30 mph winds the day I shot it and still loved it.

Helice is a lot of fun. But expensive and not a lot of clubs offer it.

I'm going to shoot a "race" in a few weeks. Looking forward to it.
