The Sin City Silhouette Shooters had a pretty good turn out this month with the big story being Debi Wright finally shooting her first UAS perfect score-40. Debi has been up and down with her scores so maybe in 2 months she’ll shoot another one.
Other good scores of note were Joe K. shooting a 31 Standing, open sights. Susie Redhead was doing well with her Standing score but switched to Practical Hunter with her Ruger Charger. She shot a nice 33 using a bi-pod but that’s a AAA score so she has to lose the bi-pod next month. Good luck with that.
Mel Douglas shot a 37 in UAS but Debi was just too much for him this time. Val Shaver shot the little targets with his scoped gun and only missed one turkey. If you ever saw the 1/5 scale targets you’d know how good that is.
We had some not so good scores this month but in fairness to them it was the first time they’d shot in 8 months. Let’s get well and try it one more time this year. See you in Dec.

The weather was great for the SCSS’s this month but the scores weren’t there. They weren’t bad, just not as good as might be expected. Val did get a 40 in Unl big bore and Gary did shoot a nice 35, also in Unl. Don had some issues in US but I think I talked him into lightening up that load a bit. US is hard enough to shoot without beating yourself up. Speaking of which, Mel shot US with a S&W 357 and a pistol scope and turned in a nice 19. I think he will do even better next time with a little practice and a better ram load.
Small Bore Sunday had a better turn out, nice weather, and again the scores came up a little short. Val was cruising on the 1/5 scale targets until he got to the rams and then shot over the first 3. Pete was cruising in UAS then rushed the last turkey, missed, blew his concentration and missed 2 rams. Don was no match for his wife, Debi, who even though she was fighting a cold managed to kick his butt convincingly. Joe K shot 2 scores that were both below his norm. The sun has swung around to the South and sight setting change this time of year so we’ll see who can adjust for next month. If that’s not the reason at least it’s a good excuse.
Field Pistol is where all the fun was with the “Pin” Brothers go at each other harder than at the targets. Wally come out on top score wise, 23 to 22 but since he is 2 classes higher than Marc it’s hard to say he actually won. (In case you’re curious, yes, if Wally reads this I will catch a ear full).

The SCSS’s are showing their age and their inability to stay healthy. It made for a small turn out on Big Bore Sunday but at least we did see Al make a triumphant return. We also saw Debi come back after the “Broken Foot Incident” and shoot a really good 37 in UAS. Andy claims he had no chance to “cheat” and slipped a little from last month but we know he’ll be back when he can.
Small Bore Sunday saw the return of the “Brothers Pinjuve”. We haven’t heard trash talking like that in a long time. It was fun to see them at it again and I hope to see them more often. Joe K came out and shot a couple of scoped entries and did well by mere mortal standards but a little low for him. Val shot two39’s, so it must have just been one of those crazy days. In UAS, Pete got stopped at one 40 in a row but still managed a decent 38.
Everyone get well and come shoot in Oct. The temps should be livable.
