Match Report – Bowling Pins, 2/12/12

Or:  How we do things in the Big City.

Attendance was better this month.  Seven people joined me to shoot the match.  A couple of regulars couldn’t make it, but a couple of others managed to rejoin us and a couple I hope will become regulars.  Only two of us brought “minor” pistols, and one of us had function problems, so I managed to win minor for a change, essentially by default.  All eight of us brought Major pistols, almost uniformly .45’s.  I had to be different, and brought my Witness in .40 for a change.  But I’ll come back to that.

Seven of us brought .22’s.  Jim Burnett took that class handily.  I just wasn’t fast enough this time.  Five of us brought revolvers, two of them .44 Magnums with full-house loads.  Let’s just say the pin damage this month was significant.  But I managed to win the Revolver class this time.  I have apparently learned how to hit with my S&W 327.  I even managed to clean a table with five shots, double-action once.  No one was more shocked than I was.

Jim Burnett also won Major with his Clark Custom pin gun, and beat me for overall pistol champion, but here was the highlight of the day:  The second set of the second round of Major, we had a little… “incident.”  Watch:

Thanks to Jim Bertrand and his hat-cam for catching that.
