The weather held off last Saturday and although it was hot and humid, it was a great day to be on the range. Congratulations this month go to our match winner Dewey Hales with a score of 284.04. Congratulations are also extended to Tony Simonetti, winner of the modern military class with a score of 279.02. Complete match results are posted below.

For the last several years, we have hosted a sniper match as a bonus match during the summer. This year we changed gears a little and opted to host a service pistol match as our bonus match. We held our inaugural pistol match this year on June 30th and had a great turnout. Rifle shooters who haven’t been out in a while were able to return to the range and show their handgun skills.

Saturday turned out to be a great day to be on the range and we had a great turnout for our 2018 John Wallace Cup match in memory of founding member, club historian, and unofficial armorer, John Wallace. Competitors in the cup match must use an as-issued M1 Garand with surplus ammunition, and the course of fire is the same course we shoot each month. There are no practice relays allowed in this one, so your first relay must be with the Garand, and that will be your entry into the cup match. Shooters not competing for the cup are welcome to shoot in the Vintage, Modern, Unlimited or other categories as always.

We had near perfect weather and a full complement for our April match as we welcomed a number of new shooters and a few former members to the firing line. The competition was stiff but Tony Simonetti persevered over 18 other shooters to win the Garand match with a 280-1X. Dewey Hales took top honors in the modern military category with a score of 288-4X. In the Open Individual Category, Richard Martinez took top honors with his National Match M-1A and a score of 294-14X.

Apologies in advance for the pun, but we started off our 2018 match season with a bang on Saturday: beautiful weather, a great turnout, excellent marksmanship...what more could we ask for? Congratulations to Tony Simonetti for his win in the GSM category with a score of 278.04. Great job also to new president Chris Kurek, who won the Modern Military category with a 276.02. A big "thank you" to everyone who made it out--hope to see you again next month. And if you didn't make it on Saturday, we'll hold you a spot in April! See below for our complete match results.
