· Match Reports


Today had manny changes in the statistic board for USBR benchrest here at Lefthanders Gun Club. Old club records were tied and new records were set. It definately was a day to remember. In the Sporter Class Rick Smith's record of 233-4x was shattered by Missouri's Ed Muff. Muff shot a 237-3x to admonish a record that I thought would be around for a long time here at our club. Good Shooting Ed!!!!!!

Then to really make things interesting the Missouri group launched an attack on the custom class but only to tie with Leo Suhre's record of 242-3x.

Once again it was Ed Muff and his sidekick Ray Brown to both tie the standing record. Competition doesn't get much better than this!!! We move on to the unlimited class and Lefthander's Tim Black tried in vain to recapture the unlimited record held by Missouri's Jerry luck of 245-4x to Tim's 244-2x. Good Shooting Tim!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Conditions were not what you would call favorable to shoot any type of record on the range today. Well there is always October to scratch the brass plate for the year. I myself have always felt that October is usually the most favorable time to shoot at your best here at our club grounds.In the past I have found October to be almost windless for a shooter that wants to crack the 240 club. Next month could be at the least a very interesting situation. Any way I wish to thank all who attended and hope to see a good turn out for our last shoot of the year in October. Here are the match results.
