Shooters in Las Vegas battled for the win in the “Glitter Gulch” 100/200 yd Varmint for Score Match. Our normal attendance was a little low considering the big group match in Phoenix the same weekend. But with sunny skies and cool crisp temperatures five shooters enjoyed the day not expecting the unusual outcome of match winning equipment.
We started first at 100 yards with a warm up match following five record targets. Mirage played a factor in the lower than usual “X” count except for one shooter. Sheldon Turf took first place with a respectable 250-18X. Keith Myers and John Seines both tied with 250-10X scores with John taking second place after shooting a better first target than Keith.
Next up was the 200 yard match after the warm up. Here is where things got very interesting for the next five record targets. Ron Levesque shooting his 6PPC HV group gun came preloaded to the match and proceeded to stay clean at 200 yards. For some of you this might not come as a surprise considering the inherent accuracy of the PPC. But Ron shot a 250-6X with only two wind flags the whole day! It could not have happened to a nicer guy. Coming in second place with a 248-3X was match director Keith Myers. Third place was Tom Guisewhite scoring a 246-6X.
Congratulations to Ron Levesque for winning the “Glitter Gulch” NBRSA Varmint for Score 100/200 match!
