Tucson Smallbore Prone Results - September

The scores were as hot as the temperature at the September 9, 2007, smallbore prone match at Tucson Rifle Club. Four of the nine shooters exceeded a 1190 aggregate score. Lee McKinney, using a newly-purchased 2 inch Unertl scope, dropped only four points for the day and emerged the winner. Rick Smart trailed Lee by just one point, but shot more X's, 71, to Lee's 63. Greg Fallon led the X-counts with 85, but lost six points to end up third overall. Wow, that's 70% center shots! Bernice McKinney shot the only 40 shot "clean" of the day, 400-32x in the opening 50 yard match, but wore out with the heat to finish fourth, seven points down. Jim Denovchek thought he'd scoop the competition by using his scope, but found that after several months of iron sight shooting, his glass skills were a little rusty.
Maury Krupp, back from honing his skills at Camp Perry, led the iron sight group with some of the best scores he's ever shot, including a 396-20x at 50 yards. Junior shooter Nathan Abel squeezed continuous improvement out of a Club-issued Mossberg, finally beating Bill Reitze in the Dewar match at the end of the day. Looks like dad, Hal Abel, will be under a lot of pressure now to buy the kid a decent rifle (or surrender his Anschutz). Bill Reitze, meanwhile, has concluded that shooting in shirtsleeves is tough, and he's now shopping for a shooting coat.
All the scores are posted on the attached Excel spreadsheet. Our next match will be October 14, 2007. Greg Fallon Match Director
