Doug Giraud Legs out, Distinguished Rifle!

Doug Giraud legged out and finished his Distinguished Rifleman's Badge at Panola County Gun Club on Sunday.

  The club gave four Legs to non-distinguished shooters.  Jeff Lin, already Distinguished, won the match in a tie with several other shooters at 487, all separated by X-count.

Utley Wins Panola NRA Regional.

And the other stuff is just details.

Panola Regional Match Weekend.

  Sold out, as usual.  64 shooters fills the range.  I don't think there is a slot left.  We used to squeeze in an extra relay or add folks by pair-firing and shooting the rapids on an alibi relay, but Match Director Dave Wilson decided it was simpler for everyone if we played it straight.

  Today was team day and Ken Gaby and Dave put together teams out of the likely National Match shooters.  Some very strong scores turned in.  Seems like a 1949 point aggregate for four shooters each firing a 50 shot 500 point match won.  1919 was the next score down.  Winning was TSRA White with Buddy Reich, Randy Scheibel, Jeff Lin and Clay Hefner.  484s and up.

  A little over 40 folks today on a work-day Friday.  The full 64 tomorrow.  LEG match near capacity on Sunday plus a Pistol Leg afterwards.
