Saturday, November 28, 2015, Pistol Steel match has been CANCELED due to an inclement weather.
A great October day in "Big Wonderful Wyoming" for some NRA Action Pistol Shooting at the Otto Rd Shooting Range. 8 shooters took on a very challenging four event course of fire with shooting under time pressure from 50 yards to 7 yards. This month two man on man timed events from the Action Pistol rulebook were conducted. The Flying "M" and the Speed Event. The Speed Event is conducted at the annual NRA Bianchi Cup National Action Pistol Championship which pits the top finishers in each Division in a timed speed shooting contest with the fastest shooter rewarded with some big $$$. We also ran the Falling Plates Event which Bianchi Cup Champion Brian Enos says is one the most difficult shooting events in practical shooting. We then finished up with the "Advanced Military Pistol Course" which is a speed and accuracy event firing from 50 yards to 10 yards.
Scoring for the Flying M and the Speed Event was similar to motorsports events such as NASCAR, F-1 and Indycar. The fastest overall time in each Division would be awarded 480 points. 2nd overall would get a 475. 3rd would get a 473. Then each finisher after 3rd place would receive a 471, 469, 467, 465, 463 etc.
The Falling Plates event requires 48 shots with a possible 480-48X. There are no 8's or 5's in the Falling Plates--its 10 points and an X or nothin'!
The "Advanced Military Pistol Course" requires 50 shots, 45 shots scored for X's with a maximum possible 500-45X.
Everyone didn't just obey but "lived" by the four fundamental rules of firearms safety--all shooters had an enjoyable time getting out of "comfort zones" and improving individual handgun skills!
1st Metallic Glenn Herbst 1682-44X
1st Production: John Granner 1621-42X
1st Open: Andy Rayland 1859-64X
1st .22 Rimfire Open: Justin Clark 1881-70X
Finally a big THANK YOU to all the shooters who helped set up and take down the events. Without your gracious help there would be no match.
Next month is the month of giving so your match fee is bringing some non-perishable food items to be donated to Cheyenne NEEDS charity organization. Hopefully the weather will be tolerable and we can have a good turnout for charity. See you next month and bring a friend!
