S. Walker-Wistful for timing and keeping us straight as much as possible and to Potter for all of the worrying and hard work. Thanks to Wistful for setting up a wonderful lunch.  Thanks to Cody Maverick as our posse’ leader.

WPGC Rimfire Steel Match Scores for 06 JUN 2018


We had a great match WED.  The weather was great and comradery was super.

We tried the WPGC’s new dueling tree.  Although designed for “big boy” rounds, it did well and, I think, everyone enjoyed the challenge.  I had originally intended the tree to be the last two stages, but we wanted to check it out before the match to ensure we could tell a hit had occurred.  So, rather than take it down to set it up again, we just shot those stages first.  It was a real change going back to the 18″ plates after that.

Congrats to Don Fenton as overall winner and top Open shooter and to Bryan Hood leading the Limited shooters.  Also, well done to Bob Blevins, Dick Davis, Perry Fridley, and yours truly for shooting clean.

For our next match we will celebrate the 04th of JULY!!  Should be fun!!

Enjoy and see you all in JULY.

    – 20 round J-Frame (5 shot, short barrel) stage
    – 28 round 1911 stage using Wild Bunch Rules (smaller frame carry 1911’s are OK to use)
    – We will also be shooting a 29 round stage (24 with normal DA Firearm then 5 rounds with a J-Frame) this will be one of the 6 DA stages.

If it rains we will put up tents. Also if there is time after the normal stages have been completed we may have another 1911 stage so you may want to bring extra ammo for the 1911.

As normal all stages are shot using adult caliber firearms (center fire) and no lasers, red dot or other optics are allowed.
