Silhouette: New Long Run Record Today

hugh-10turkeys-web

Our good friend Hugh McCombs, match director for Silhouette at Jacksonville’s Gateway Rifle and Pistol Club, had a stellar day at today’s match.

He won both matches, shooting a 35 on the first and a 29 on the second. During his first match he shot his first 10-in-a-row turkeys! If you have ever shot Silhouette you know that the turkeys are the hardest animal and this is not easy to do. He also shot 10 chickens during that match.

At our club, when you shoot 10 of any animal, you get to go for the long run record at the end. Since turkeys are so tough, the club long run record is only 11 turkeys. With everyone watching and cheering him on, Hugh knocked down his first two turkeys to seal the record at 12. He missed the third which ended the run.

Congratulations Hugh! We will see you next week at the Florida State Championship in Jacksonville.

Steel Match for March 2015

Ended up being a great day for shooting. Carter Ramsey was the Match Director for the day. Joe Loehle did the scores. Some good scores in here!
