This was the fifth match of our new season. We are still under restrictions from the Kung Flu Virus and were required to follow all the protocols required by our Esteemed Governor. We did get lucky with the weather this month. It was cool and slightly overcast but no wind so it could have been worse. We had a good turnout despite the restrictions, cold weather and severe ammo shortage. The match was a 2 stage Subgun match with the shooter starting with the three paper and one steel target. The shooter moved to the second stage and engaged an array of steel targets in a specific order and finished with a stop plate. The course of fire was modified for the second run. The match moved quickly, and we finished early. A team event followed the main event and it seemed that youth triumphed over age and experience. Nice shooting boys. Next month will be our annual St Valentine’s Day match. We will have a special class for Thompsons so dust off those choppers and have some fun. The match will be on 02/14/21.

This was the seventh match of our season and the weather was very nice. It was clear with a little breeze so we go lucky. This was our annual Belt Fed Bowling Pin Match. We had a good turnout and the match moved quickly. There were three main classes for this match. Belt Fed, Assault Rifle and Subgun. The match was very simple. Take out 20 bowling pins in the fastest possible time. Matt Babb brought the trophy back and took it home again with his partner Mike Berkeypile who won the Belt Fed class with twin M240‘s. In the Subgun class the times were very close with about one half of a second separating the first 2 shooters. Wow. A Mad Minute event followed the main match which was great fun.

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.
