It was another good turnout of shooters at the Short range on the morning of January February 25, 2017, for the scheduled Centerfire Defender Pistol Shoot.
At the ten yard line in front of each shooter was single target frame with stick-ons representing the vital parts of the human anatomy – the heart, the brain, and the guts. Here each shooter laid out ten rounds, loaded five, and fired at each target as instructed by the match director. Then they loaded and fired their remaining five rounds at the targets as instructed.
Then each shooter moved to the twenty-five-yard line their remaining forty rounds of ammo. Here they had in front of them four bulls-eye targets and a silhouette target representing a lovely young lady with purple hair being held hostage by a bad guy. Here each shooter loaded five rounds and fired at the bad guy and then the bulls-eye targets as instructed. They repeated the process of loading and shooting five rounds as instructed until all forty rounds had been expended. Any shots that hit the poor hostage cost the shooter points. Each shooter went through the program twice for a total of 100 rounds fired.
After all the total bullet hits were counted, shooting honors for this event went to:
1st Place Jim Garges
2nd Place Tim Delgrosso
3rd Place Jim Ritts
As said before, my thanks to all those who came out, helped with set-up and tear down, and took part in this fun shooting event. And has also been before, those who stayed away missed out on a lot of shooting fun and great pistol practice. So mark your calendars and come on out and give this fun shoot a try.
