Faces of Panola NRA Regional Match Weekend.

Always the biggest hat in the house. Clay Hefner from Pittsburg. Clay was the top LEG for the gold in Sundays EIC rifle match. He'll be going back to Perry with us...and you never know. His mom might even show up.

Roy Plumlee from Terrell. Double Distinguished. NM veteran of many military and TSRA teams. Roy ran the line at the pistol LEG.

If he hasn't won it yet, he will. 4-time TSRA Service Rifle Champ, NM Vet, 2nd place in the Regional and the LEG match. Justin Utley is in school for the Tyler PD. He's smiling because he won the Pistol EIC.

Deer hunter, longtime competitor, gun rights supporter and businessman Allan Long at the Pistol Match. When his son gets old enough to shoot with us, there is going to be big trouble.

Frequently the only sober inhabitant of Vivian, Louisiana, Tommy Laing daydreams about his next ex-wife.

Okie Richard Ford Legged out and won his Distinguished Rifleman's Badge on Sunday. He's a happy Sooner. We hope to see him get his badge on the stage at Camp Perry during this years National Matches.

Half of the Rogers Brothers Brain Trust, Travis Rogers, TSRA NM Junior Team vet and great guy.

Dual citizenship in Texas and Minnesota, James Pennington met Clay Hefner at the audition for TOP SHOT and has come to shoot with us a couple of times. James won 6 LEG points on Sunday.

Somebody will remind me who this is. Blanking.

Katye Foster, SHSU student and NM Vet scopes the targets while scoring.

Warren Vandiver on the line at 300.

Travis Rogers sets the time at 300 rapid.

The OTHER half of the Rogers Brothers Brain Trust, Clayton Rogers. There is a controversey about which brother is taller, which smarter and which better looking.

Jamesy Wamsey. TSRA Junior Team shooter. Emily Hogg calls him "cupcake," but that won't last long.

The extremely competitive yet laid back Dr. Jeffrey Lin from Ft Worth.

Our host, Roger Sepaugh. NM TSRA Team Vet and working on Double Distinguished. If he lives long enough.

Tommy Laing with extra eye protection from richocheting women and date fragments.

NM vet Glenn Edgard, Houston, Texas. Distinguished Rifle and one of the folks who help host and run the Bayou Rifles Regional every year.

James Pennington thinks it over at the 600 yardline. Texas?...or Minnesota....

Jonathan Slaught. A TSRA Junior NM Junior Team shooter who is slowly working his shooting into a very competitive place.

Gregg Foster from Lufkin, Texas. He and daughter Katie own consecutively numbered Distinguished Rifle Badges. They were in line with Ron Leraas on the stage at the National Matches last year during the presentation.

Katie Foster. She won last year's LEG match here and went Distinguished along with her dad.

David Guthry from West Texas. David won the TSRA Garand Match a few years back and always shoots competitively, especially with wood-stocked rifles. NM Team member.

John Izlehoefer, whose name cannot be correctly spelled on the first try, even by family members. John is going to Camp Perry with the NM team this year.

Don't harsh that mellow just yet...its only a pixellated PICTURE of Coach Dick Curry!

James Pennington, the Singing Cowboy.

Ron Leraas pitched in and ran the pits when Dave Wilson needed a break. Ron is from Big Sandy and had his son shooting with him at the matches.

2030 National Match team shooter Nathan Stephens may be eating his sneaker right now, but he will be eating their lunch in about 20 years. Son of Regional Champ Keith Stephens and Lisa. This was his first Panola NRA Regional. He slept through some parts, but so did Coach Curry.
