We shot a course using scored targets, 2 stages with 5 events. It 
reminds us why we usually use the "target neutralized / time = score" in 
most matches!

We had three new guys shoot with us today, welcome to new members Mark 
(13), Matt (18) and Blair ( I didn't ask) Stone. And hello to a "face 
from the past", Dennis Paramore showed he has not forgotten which end 
the bullets come out. Drew said he was not feeling well then came on 
strong in the 2nd part of stage 2 and did some great shooting.

There was an interesting mix of weapons today. Although over half (9) 
used 45 ACP, there were only five 1911 pistols used. That is quite 
different from years past where everybody shot some type of 1911.

We saw a couple of guns go down. One to a self adjusting front sight and 
one to a dislike of Wolf ammo.

The "Shoot, Move, Communicate" drill proved very challenging. It was 
interesting to see that although shooters could choose their starting 
point, target order and direction of travel, most guys opted to do what 
seemed to be working for other shooters. I liked this drill, so don't be 
surprised to see it pop up again.

Thanks to Thomas, Jessie, Daniel and (sorry I didn't get the name) 
Jesse's friend, we got the steel gong up. It is a 14" circle at 430 
yards, and is a challenge for iron sights. Steve Whidden did not let it 
slow him down, it had not been up long before he initiated it with his 
M1A super match! Thomas also got the 150 yard plate machine up. It 
features six 6" X 8" plates.

OJ, Thomas, Glen  T., Tommy and others showed up Saturday to help Dennis 
tear out the clubhouse in preparation for it's rebuild.

Memberships have come in from Moultrie, Tifton, Bainbridge, and I talked 
to some guys from Tallahassee the other day. Things are off to a great 
start.

Match results for Sunday. 3 Feb 2008


Welcome to all the new members who came out today, some of them did not shoot in the match. We had some brand new shooters and some guys we have not seen in a decade or so. I see a trend. We had 9 different weapon types represented today, a long way from when everybody shot a single stack 1911. 16 shooters is a good number for Super Bowl Sunday. For a two stage match with 4 segments there were some VERY close scores between several shooters. 1- Cook, Noel ..................100 ...........S&W M&P 45 2- Sheffield, Alan ............. 83.66 ....... Glock 35 40 3- Cook, Daniel ............... 47.16 ....... SA 1911 45 4- Cook, T. R. ................. 47.11 ........ CZ 75 9mm 5- Vann, Dennis ................45.66 ........ S&W M&P 9mm 6- Johnson, O.J. ............... 42.97 ........ Kimber 1911 45 7- Reeves, Rob ................42.19 ........ Sig 229 40 8- Haviland, Thomas ..........41.31 ....... S/A 1911 45 9- Johnson, Brandon ..........34.69 ....... Kimber 1911 45 (New Shooter) 10- Miller, Drew .................33.14 ....... 1911 45 11- Legget, Bud ..................27.23 ....... Glock 22 40 12- Kieth, Kevin ..................27.16 ....... S/A 1911 45 13- Jones, Jessie ..................26.59 ....... S/A 1911 45 14- Valentino, Lawrence ......25.99 ........ Beretta 92 9mm 15- Christie, Richard ............22.60 ........ S/A XD 40 16- Johnson, Steve ..............16.23 ......... Para 1911 45 Hopefully by next month's match we will have the roads improved and the bathrooms up and running. I do not think the overhead will be done by this rifle match but should be up for March.
