The Military shoot was held on Sunday at the range and was attended by about 60 members and guests. Folks were also making use of our pistol range target shooting with 22 rifles before lunch was served and after lunch the shot gunners took over doing some 5 stand. Match director Will Porter as usual very graciously spent the day teaching many newcomers the discipline and supplying all with a selection of qualified firearms and ammo. Watch for this sport to take off next year.
