This was the sixth match of our season. This was our annual St Valentines day match with a separate class for Thompsons. We did not get lucky with the weather this month. It was an absolutely horrible day. It was very cold with high winds and overcast skies. We had a very large turnout with several entrees shooting Thompsons. Unfortunately the gun gods were not kind to us as it seemed we were plagued with several malfunctions again this month. Because of this and the bad weather we decided to only do one run and head for home. The match was a 3 stage match with the shooter starting in a box with the Subgun at low ready taking out three heart shaped paper targets. The shooter then moved two stage two where the giant swinger was encountered also with four steel targets. The shooter then moved to position three and engaged steel dingers in any order. Don’t forget to check out and register on our website at www.vegasshooters.net for updates and photos. The next match will be on 03/ 08/20. This will be our annual Bowling Pin BELT FED MATCH. I will send out a reminder before the match.
