      Match Reports

      October 2018:

      This month’s Bullseye match again had only one participant, Frank T (non-member) who was interested in trying out this type of shooting.  Frank brought a Browning Buckmark .22, SIG 329 9mm, and an STI .45 ACP, which he had won at last year’s Toys for Tots event.

      The Buckmark was behaving badly so I offered my S&W mod41 with an EO Tech sight.  As it usually goes, he shot it better than I do.  All of his guns were iron sights so his performance with an unfamiliar gun and a optical sight is all the more remarkable: He shot 83 (untimed), 100-4X (timed fire) and 95-4X rapid fire for a total of 278 with the .22.  Frank used his iron sights for the remaining two pistol courses of fire and scored 120 and 193, respectively, but this was the first time he had shot those pistols at 25 yards.  Each course of fire was shot two-handed.

      There will NOT be a Bullseye competition in November due to the Toys for Tots event.  With cold weather setting in, Precision Bullseye shooting will next be shot in the Spring.  When we do start back up I request interested shooters contact me via text message to let me know they will be showing up to shoot…

      September 2018: 

      The September Bullseye Precision Match held 9/8/18 had only one participant, but he was as excellent shooter.  Sanners member Mike D says he hasn’t shot bullseye for several years now, but apparently once a Master, always a Master.  Mike fired a 82-1X, 86-1X and 94-1X with his Ruger 22-45 rimfire.  Using his Springfield Armory Curtis Custom .45 ACP for both center fire and .45 strings, he scored 85-1X. 90, and 90-1X and 81, 88-2X and a very strong 93-5X in the slow fire, timed fire and rapid fire stages.  Mike’s total score was 789-12X.  Not too shabby for a long layoff.

      The next Bullseye competition will be October 13.  Please contact match director Terry W at 301-481-1555 before 10/12/18 to sign up.

      The February report is here
      Carl M edged-out Damon A with a VERY IMPRESSIVE 778-12X. 

      Damon Anderson was a very close second overall with a 767-12X.

      It was wonderful seeing new shooters at this event.  And everybody  shot well and seemed to have fun.   Well done!

      October's Match report is linked here.    Carl M dominated with a 763-5X overall score.  Damon A and Terry W also performed well, with Damon's H Z80 taking the Top Rimfire title.   We're being bumped by state match in November and by the Club's Hunting Season Closure in December.   Hope to see you-all in January of 2017.

      At September's match, Matt W dominated the event with a VERY IMPRESSIVE 767-13X.  

      Unsurprisingly, Mike M was very impressive with the best rimfire score of a massive 272, followed closely by Dick C breathing down his neck with a 264.

      Terry W also did quite well, and took overall Senior.

       It was great seeing so many new shooters at this event.  And everybody  shot well and seemed to have fun.   Well done!   Hope to see you all next month.

      Attendance at August's Match was a bit depressed by the oppressive heat.  Jake shot some unusual guns including an Artillery Luger and Single-Action Blackhawk, so he gets extra points for style.  Chris was also looking good as he was blowing our eardrums out with the Tokarev.  Interestingly, Mark's score was exactly the same two matches in a row, and his .22 score was identical as well. Mark brought his trusty Python but his score but fell apart on the 1911 -- he blames different ammo.  Anyway, it was a fun match, thanks to Terry for running it!   The detailed match report is here: SLSC Bullseye Match Report for August 2016.pdf

      July Match report is shown below.   The young whippersnapper Jake S did a great job and carried the day.    We had a surprisingly good turnout for this inaugural match, and worked-out a number of bugs that will make future matches run more smoothly.   It is good that we hold these later in the afternoon, because it was oppressively hot on both July 8th and 15th.  Bullseye-Style Precision Pistol Match-Report for July 2016 (Rev-2).pdf
