Pistol Competition

Monthly Club Pistol event 2022: The club is going to restart the 2022 pistol competitions March 25. This is the 4th Sunday of the month and will continue each month on the fourth Sunday until October 28, 2022. This will be an opportunity to begin developing skills or practice range skills for those at any level and with any caliber of pistol. While the stages are set up to score timed accuracy, we shall require safe handling of weapons at all times. All participants will be expected to help with all aspects of the activity. All of the range activities for operation are relatively simple and will be explained. It shall be noted that while we refer to this as a competition for lack of a better term, the “competition” is more a personal growth of skill. We do keep score and these scores will be emailed to each participant, there are no trophies or end of year recognition. We do encourage an enthusiastic “high five “after the guns are put away.

We assure you that you will feel better about your monthly practice and ability to safely and accurately
handle your weapon.

Why Participate: If you own a pistol, you owe it to yourself and your family to make time for this activity. This event is a friendly and educational activity. A good way to hone your skills and promote safe practice. If you are a beginner each stage is relatively simple but allows you to develop accuracy and speed. If your more experienced the stages help you practice for similar events at other venues. Events are scored which are meant be translated to skill progress.

When: 4th Sunday of the month March 28 thru October 25. Rain or shine
Time: 9:00 am 11:00 am
Number of stages: 3 possibly 4
Number of shots per stage: approx. 20 to 30
Caliber: any center fire or rim fire pistol
Experience level: all levels
Cost: $10.00 first score sheet for 3 / 4 stages. $5.00 each extra score sheet

Required participation: All will help set up, score, paste, & clean up. What we need to spread the work load
is for participants to show up at 8:30am to set up a stage. And some participants show up about 10:00 am
to shoot and be there to put targets back into storage. If only a few people show up then only one stage will
be set up and configured in different ways to be interesting and challenging.
A few of us have decided to do this event. We invite anyone to participate but there is not enough money
for us not to have help. The money only pays for the blown apart targets and frames. We barely break even
with the entry fee. If you are interested in this event and are willing to help then call or email me and I’ll
sign you up .. That does not mean you need to make a commitment to be there at every 4th Sunday.
Any questions about this event please call W Morgan 1 740 707 7964 or wmorganl@columbus.rr.com
If you have questions about what kind of equipment or procedure, I can give you a list.

If anyone wants to take over this event they can contact Bill Morgan.  Targets, timers and frames are in storage. These can be made available to another in club group. Maybe by next spring a monthly pistol event can be organized.
