Darn good shooting sports since 1947

Doug Takes The Turkey!

The 10 November 2018 event featured 10 shooters competing in a double elimination match, with the winner receiving a turkey to take home.  This is the last event of the season, and was a great end to a long run of 3 Gun this year.

The weather started out chilly, with a brief spout of sleet and rain, but quickly moved into a bright and sunny day!  The course started with shotgun against a Texas Star with 4 turkeys at 30 feet; falling plates at 85 yards for rifle; and 6 each 2 inch metal plates at 30 feet for pistol.  

The final target was a 6 plate dueling tree, with three targets on each side, engaged with a pistol.  The winner of each match had to engage and make all targets fall to the ground, and then move all targets on the dueling tree to their opponents side.

The winners!
