John C. Garand Match


John C. Garand Match results for July have been posted. I note with interest that Bill Orzechowski is the match (Garand class) winner - 447-4X, for the third month in a row! Couple years or so ago, Bill did not even own a Garand, now he's a regular and successful competitor. Congrates, Bill.

You can see Bill shooting at the last JC Garand Clinic at http://tucsonrifleclub.org/JC_Garand_Clinic_2004/clinic_1/index.htm.

Yesterday's Tactical Night Shoot


It started out a fine day for a shoot. CC took the Man on Man warmup stage in a hard fought head to head with Al. Congrats CC.

The second stage (Rattle Battle) began with with 4 of the 6 shooters on the line having rifle failures. 48 rounds in a minute and a half seemed to take its toll. The second line of shooters faired better wrt equipment, but alas, the weather came roaring in with a vengence toward the middle of the 2nd string. Not everyone got to complete the Rattle Battle stage. Scores are posted as follows:

Rattle Battle
(partial, rained out)
Jeff 27
Maury 26
Dan 26
Bill 26
Al 25
Don 14
Ken 14
Kyle 11
John 10
Tim 9
Van 7
Frank 7
Matt 5
Mike 6
CC 5

High score was Jeff at 27 (out of 48). I think we all could use a bit more practice under time stress situations. Surely a 50% hit rate is minimal--even with a 16 round standing string.
Perhaps next month we can redo the Rattle Battle stage, if weather conditions permit. I've got new target stands (stronger for gusting winds) on order. Final upshot was that we cancelled the match and were not able to attempt the Sniper/Spotter stages or the battle field pick up stage (Pot Luck). Sorry guys, we'll attempt to reschedule.
