Today was a beautiful day for a match. Ten people joined me in shooting the March match, seven brought Major guns, seven brought Minor guns, four brought revolvers, and ten brought .22’s. There were three new shooters to this match, which hopefully means that attendance will continue to improve.
Major was won by Jim Burnett with his Clark Custom pin gun. I took Minor with my brand-new S&W M&P9. I also won Revolver with my S&W 327, and .22 with my Ruger Mk II. Not a bad weekend for a guy who just turned 50! I think I could have won the overall match if I hadn’t run out of 9mm ammo, but I did, and Jim Burnett took that match beating me two out of three for the win.
Next month I’m bringing a Major gun again.
Skip Blecker won the drawing, taking home seven dollars more than his entrance fee. He got to shoot for free and got a little gas money out of it, too. It had been a while since he’d attended one of these matches, but said that the last time he did, he won the drawing too. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good?
The next match is Sunday, April 8. Hope to see you there.
