Smallbore Prone 1600 Match 

After the USA Shooting and NRA National Matches in July, 3-Positon/ Prone International Shooters were scarce.  I am told by good sources (their parents) that they need a rest. Though few, the shooters in attendance made a good showing, but couldn’t keep up with veteran shooter Larry Sawyer.

These matches are shot on the A-50 International Target at 50 Meters.  The international targets are the most unforgiving target you will ever shoot on with metallic sights.  Vinny and Ryan – Juniors and relatively new to International, did a fine job.  When it was all done Larry Sawyer took home high honors.

Sunday brought out a good bunch of shooters.  Adults outnumbered the Junior shooters 2 to 1.  Shooting conditions were great for the 1600 point match.  The 50 yard match started out with some serious scores being made – 4 cleans with Stacey Tamulinas and Erik Rhode being tied with 33 X’s.  The Dewar Match (50 & 100 Yard metallic sight) was hotly contested with a pair of 399’s with Stacey holding the lead on X’s.  The 100 yard any sight match separated the Smallbore Shooters from the High Power guys.  Eric Hazelton posted a 400-30 X to lead the way.  Eric Hazelton finished off the competition in the 50 Meter Match posting a 400-34X to win the day with a score of 1599-115X.  Buy the way Eric is still a Junior Shooter!  He can’t wait for a rematch at the State Championship in two weeks!
