August Pistol Match    (Hover your mouse on the slide show to pause it.)

 

Special thanks to Gary Coleman for getting the range in great shape despite the daily rains. Helpers were Don Sharp, Allen Keefer, and Rich Korscog. Diana Eyeman did a great job in sorting out the 110+ scorecards and deriving the top 8 shooters.

The match was inaugural 25 yard combo of paper silhouette and 20/60 paper pinmatches.   Three each were fired.   We had 19 shooters to include one junior.   Four blue cards were signed. 24 separate five shot strings were fired and each shooter turned in up to six score cards.  Shooting started right before 0900 and ended by 1000 hours.   Expenses included ~ $35 in targets and ~$80 for the eight awards.  Match fees of $180 yielded ~$65 net .
The Musick clan again did very well gathering three of the awards. There were at least three 20 scores on the pin matches

July Pistol Match    (Hover your mouse on the slide show to pause it.)

Inaugural 25 yard combo match with 20/60 paper pin targets was a big success. We had a full firing line with 20 shooters starting out with the 50 round bullseye. This was followed by three complete matches of the 20/60 paper pin match.

Special thanks to Rich Korscog for general range control. Niki Musick handled the photography, and Diana Eiman along with Ginger Porterfield sorted out the 80 score cards.

We had about 8 new shooters and four blue cards. Shooting started ~0900 and was done by 1015. The 20/60 pin match saw few perfect scores, so it appears practice needs to be a higher priority for many of the shooters. Expenses were ~$120, fees were $190, so net profit was $70.

50 round/500 point bullseye-max score 500-50X
rimfire-Parker Musick 466-9X; centerfire-Jim Weinreich 268-1; Revolver Tom Steffes 447-9; Carry -Michael Barbuck 210-1; and Carbine Pete Smith 465-12.

20/60 PAPER PIN
rimfire-Mike Musick 20-11; Revolver-Mike Fulbright 17-2; and carbine-Blake Meineke 18-2.

There are still about half of the slots open for the September gun show.

August 13 match will be 25 yard combo-paper silhouette and 20/60 paper pin.

April Pistol Match         The Contestants – – – – v    

alineup

The delayed April match was held 4/16 under great conditions.   Club clans did quite well, and performance records were met and even remade with higher scores.  Match started well before 0900, proceeded well, and the final match was fired shortly after 1000 hours.   Win/Win.

Rich Korscog and Allen Keefer provided outstanding support for the match.   We sorely missed Mike Hover scoring as well as Linda shooting.

The numbers:  One record tied, one blue card completed, two new records set, two juniors shooting, three each matches fired (12 yard silhouette & rapid fire five target), four blue cards signed, 10 awards, 19 shooters, 72 degrees, 105 score cards and 2230 rounds fired.

The Musick clan won three awards, as well as setting one new record.  Giudice clan won two awards, and set one record.  Some very high scores were noted with very few points and even x-count determining the winners.  YTD  rankings showed a lot of movement.

There are still about 20 open slots for the gun show, which is the SECOND week of the month. The April pistol match will be the THIRD weekend of the month, and it will be the popular 12 yard combo.
We need bricks of 22 ammo for prizes. If you find any non premium ammo (less than ~$0.08 per round, buy it and I will reimburse. We need more CCI Std velocity which should be around $0.09/round if it becomes available. I need receipts. We try to hand out one brick per month, but supplies are running low!
One of February match shooters lost a magazine for a High Standard. If you find it, notify Wally Defreitas.

January Pistol Match

The 2016  pistol competition had a great start on Saturday with great weather and 21 shooters.   Lineup included one junior, and  3 blue cards. Match was 12 yard combo, which consisted of three each paper silhouette and rapid fire five target.  We only shoot 20 rounds paper silhouette due to inability to score any more rounds, and max score is 200-20X.   Rapid fire five target max score is 25-25X.   All 12 yard shooting in these matches is done in 5 shot/10 second strings, starting out with arm down at a 45 degree angle.

Rich Korscog and Allen Keefer provided excellent range officer duties. Scores were exceptionally high, as noted below.

First thing, special thanks to Mike Hover for sorting out the ~117 score cards to determine the 8 award winners.   Further complicating the sorting was Mike Musick setting three separate new records, but he could only claim one, which was 12 yard silhouette carry with a192-5, surpassing the Pete Smith record of 186-1.  Mike also shot a rimfire silhouette of 200-19 (record is Mike with a 200-18), and a rapid fire five target rimfire score of  25-18 (record is Mike with 25-17.  Other record setters were Ryan Guidice shooting a 200-18 in silhouette carbine, beating his previous record of 200-18; and Pete Smith shooting a rapid fire five target carbine 25-9X, beating his old record of 25-7.

Linda Hover started out the silhouette match with a 200-13 score in rimfire, winning that category.   Mike Creech won center fire with 180-0; Tom Steffes won revolver with 199-3; Mike Music won carry with the 192-5 record; and Ryan Guidice won   carbine with his record 200-19.

In rapid fire five target, Keith Frederickson won rimfire with a 15-10X; Mike Fulbright won revolver with 19-1; and Pete Smith won carbine with the record 25-9.

February 13 match will be 20/60 pin match.   20 pins in 60 seconds.   Our best reactive match!  All eight winners are now even with 3 points each for the annual championship

Gun show signup still has a dozen vacancies.   Call club house to fill them in.

December Pistol Match

Final match of the year was held 12/12.   Turnout of 23 was highest of the year. Match was 12 yard combo.   23 shooters, one junior, about three blue cards, about 6 newbies, 3 female shooters,  2185 rounds fired, 6 complete matches were fired.

Special thanks to Mike Hover for sorting out the 119 score cards and ascertaining the 8 winners for the match.  Rich Korsog and Doug McCutcheon officiated.
Scores were very good for the match.   Mike Musick set two new records, but only one would count as only one  score/shooter is allowed.  Musick clan did win 3 of the 8 awards.  Ryan Guidice also set a new record for silhouette carbine.
Rapid fire five target- 25-25X max score:  RF-Mike Musick jr 25-10; CF Mike Musick new record of 25-15X;  Carry-Mike Fulbright 14-0; and carbine-Pete Smith 23-7.

2015 FINAL STANDINGS
 
We lost three of our regular shooters this year:   Fred Seltman, Don  Davis, and John Czariki.  We had previously lost David McCall, Al Waters and Dave Williamson.   It was a pleasure knowing these people and getting the opportunity to enjoy shooting with them.
Special thanks to our helpers, to include Rudi Seltman, Don Sharp, Rich Korsog, Allen Keefer, Mike Hover, Doug McCutcheon, Jack Martin and others.   Many of our regular shooters do a great job in helping set up and shut down, to include the Musick clan, Dominic Guidice and  Pete Smith.  Our regular shooters make the matches run smoothly and safely.  Special thanks to Kit Duncan, Rich,  and Allen for donating supplies and prizes.  Bill Campbell has done a great job in updating the pistol portion of the club website.   Keeping the 50 yard line in great shape was done by Ronnie Davis and Gary Coleman. Neil Munson and Paul Thielan handled the administrative tasks and kept us in targets.  All those people helped make the pistol program a success. My apologies for not mentioning everyone who helped out.
 
11 Matches were shot with total of 191 shooters and 21k rounds fired, averaging 17 shooters per match.  880 score cards (and separate matches) were completed. The pistol caliber carbine category was added at the start of the summer and has been quite popular.
 
Financial- 2015 Cost and expenses can be found on the far right side of the Excel spreadsheet with estimated  targets, supplies, prizes, fees and profit columns.   Shooters pay $10 for each match, juniors shoot free.   Prizes are estimated as ~$8 each due to costs and donations.  Costs included ~ $260  in targets, $664 for 83 awards, and  $150 for annual prizes for total of $1074.  Shooter Fees of $1740 yielded net gain of $666 for the year, our best year yet.
 
Who’s the top shooters? 
To everyone’s surprise, Mike Musick won first place with 33 points. He also set at least five new top scores for the year.  His secret?  Show up for the matches (plus  practice).
Linda Hover  won second place with 26 points.   She is also the only female to reach the annual winners circle.   Attagirl Linda!
Dominic Guidice won third place with 21 points.   He has held back, obviously spending time teaching Ryan shooting techniques.

A very important members meeting will be held this Wednesday 10/14 to  elect four new board members/officers.  There were four resignations at the last board meeting. This has to be done ASAP to comply with bylaws per Tom Steffes.   If you have been  satisfied with the board’s performance and treatment of members  the past few years, just stay home.  If not, your presence is necessary.  (Remember the past few presidential elections?)
My understanding of applicants interested in the various openings are Ronnie Davis, Rick Roach (for secretary), Allen Keefer, Dan Egbert, Jack Schubert, Josh Bolger (for VP) and Joe Ruth.
I found a Czariki clan picture from the April 2012 match  John, Joshua and Jessie are on the front row.   We are going to miss him!  He was a super nice guy and very talented with regards to repairing machinery as well as modifying firearms.    I’ve had a number of responses to the announcement.  I have copied Joshua’s email address if you wish to contact him: joshuaczariki@ymail.com

There are still over 50 slots open for the September gun show.

Seeing how it was quite steamy today, the next match will also be a covered summer match…September pistol match will be 25 yard combo-paper silhouette and timed five target. Bring up to 6 guns and 135 rounds of ammo. The carbine shooters have a long way to go to catch up with the pistol top scores.

July Pistol Match

 

We had another great match with a full shooting line this past Saturday.  Match was 25 yard combo which has paper silhouette (200-20X max) and timed five target (25-25X max).  Special thanks to Rudi Seltman, Allen Keefer and Rich Korscog for their expertise and efforts.

The numbers:  One new record- Mike Musick in center fire paper silhouette with a 192-10 beating Wayne Shuff’s previous record of 189-4 (out of 200-20X possible 20 shooters;   two juniors: three blue cards; 82 degrees on startup ; 103 score cards to determine the best of up to 10 winners; 2265 rounds fired in five different classes:  rimfire auto-center fire auto-revolver-carry-carbine.

The winners:  Paper silhouette-CF Mike Musick with the record 192-10; RF Mike Musick Jr with a 191-6; Revolver Dominic Guidice 174-4.; and carbine Fred Seltman 187-4.

Timed five target– Rimfire Linda Hover 18-1; carry Troy Coleman 9-1; and  carbine Wayne Shuff 23-1.

August 8 match will be 25 and 50 yard bullseye.   The 50 yard is 20 rounds in 10 minutes.  The 25 yard is 50 rounds- 10 slow fire in 10 minutes, 20 timed fire in 20 second segments, and 20 rapid (or Don Sharp’s ragged fire) rounds in 10 second segments.   We typically fire two each matches, and shooting is done about 1100.

If the interest is there, we can make it a 30 round/300 point (instead of 50/500) match by just shooting one each slow, timed and rapid fire segments, thereby reducing four targets and respective scoring per match. This should save about 30 minutes.   Let me know!

Special congratulations on 7/4 Family Fun shoot  to the Musick clan for winning first and second place teams-The Musick Juniors outshot the old fogies Musicks..   Third place went to Scattergunners.

September gun show signup sheet is available at the clubhouse.

Match pictures and a video will be sent out later.

MAY 9, 2015  PISTOL MATCH

Another great match with an overflow of eager marksmen!  22+ shooters, to include 2 mothers, one junior, bunch of new shooters, and one blue card.  We ended up with one silhouette and 4 timed five target matches fired.

Special thanks to master scorekeeper Rudi Seltman, match caller Don Sharp, timer Margaret Clark, and expert line watchers Allen Keefer and Rich Korsog.   Rich was hard to see due to his Polish Army surplus camouflage outfit.

Match was 25 yard combo, which includes paper silhouette with 200-20X max score as well as timed five target with 25-25X max score.  A pistol caliber carbine  class was tried out for the first time with two shooters participating.  We need at least four shooters per match to make it a new class.   Scores were lower than anticipated due in part to lack of off hand practice.   But, it was fun!

Mike Music broke his old paper silhouette revolver record of 190-6 with an outstanding 192-5.     He also scored at least one 25 out of 25 on timed five target.  Grandson Parker Musick won rimfire silhouette with 186-2, Blake Meinecke won center fire auto with 109-4, and Fred Seltman won carry with 126-1.

Linda Hover got back into the winner’s circle with a five target rimfire score of 21-2, Carlos Cardona won center fire with 11-0, Dominic Guidice won revolver with 18-1, and Bob Hebert won carry with 8-0.

June 13 match will be 50 and 25 yard bullseye, 20 and 50 rounds respectively.

President Jack Martin announced 50 yard range will be closed indefinitely due to range repairs, tentative opening date is 5/17. The 100 yard range will be closed 5/12-18.

APRIL 11, 2015  PISTOL MATCH

We had another great action match. This was our inaugural 22 silhouette and 20/60 pin match combo. The left side of the range was set up for 22 silhouette and the right side was pins, nine positions each.

Special thanks to Mike Musick, Pete Smith, and Jack Martin for emergency re-engineering our 22 silhouette mounts as all but one of the original mounts had vanished.  Jack and Rich Korsog helped out with the match, and Mike Hover helped sort out the 82 score cards to come up with the seven winners.

18 shooters attended, to include at least five first timers.  Five complete 20 round matches were fired with simultaneous 20 and 10 second strings for shooters on either side of the range.  Shooting ended at 1030.

The Musick clan again filled up much of the winners’ circle.   Perfect score was 20 for both matches.   Mike Musick won 22 auto silhouette with 20, followed by Mike Jr with 17.  In 20/60 pin match, Linda Hover  won 22 with 19, followed by Parker Musick with 17 and Mike Fulbright with a 14.   Center fire pin was won by our own master magician Luis Campaneria with 13, followed by Shawn Maguire -12.

Inexplicably, the shooters wished to return to our summer matches which are fired under cover for the May match.   May match will be 25 yard combo-paper silhouette and time five target.

JANUARY PISTOL MATCH

The first 2015 match was held Saturday under brisk conditions.   We had 14 shooters to include four Musicks, two juniors and one completed blue card.   Match was three each 12 yard paper silhouette and rapid fire five shot target. Scoring got a little complicated with the presence of a Mike Musick and Mike Musick Jr, who both placed.  Shooting started before 0900 and was over around 1000.   The highly trained cadre of Allen Keefer, Rich Korsog, and Rudi Seltman made everything happen.  Don Sharp was not present, as he was suffering from some serious case of crud.

The five target match with max score of 25-25X had some very good scores.   Mike Music JR won RF with  25-9, followed by Linda Hover with 25-6 and Pat Clark with 23-6.   This is Linda’s fourth straight placing! Wayne Shuff won centerfire with 25-12 and Mike Fulbright won carry with a 13-1.  Records are: RF Mike Musick 25-17; CF Wayne Shuff 25-13; Revolver Musick 25-16; and carry Musick 23-5.

Paper silhouette match (200-20X max) had some great scores as well.   Mike Musick SR (aka old ____) won rimfire with a 200-17; Shawn Maguire won centerfire with a 187-1; and Fred Seltman won carry with a 185-4.   Records are:  RF Musick 200-18; CF Musick 196-10; Revolver Musick 199-15; and carry Pete Smith 186-1

The Feb 14 match will be a first: 12 yard combo 20/60 pin and 22 paper silhouette.   Left side of range will be 22 silhouettes, right side will be pins.   The 22 silhouettes are UHMD urethane sheets precisely machined figures of chickens, turkeys, rams, and hogs.  Time segments will be the same as the pins, 5 targets in 10 or 20 seconds.   The 22 silhouettes are very easy to flip over, and all current records are 20 out of 20.   Categories are presently 22 auto open, 22 auto optic, and revolver.   This may change  that to 22 auto,  22 revolver, and 22 carry.   Feedback is invited.

There are still about 30 openings for the gun show.   Don Sharp says we need a lot more guard slots filled-These are the gate/door positions currently filled by $$$$ Lakeland Center employees.
