July Postal Pistol Match
June Postal Pistol Match
3/14/2020 Pistol Match
The March pistol match started under great weather conditions with no frost evident. Shooting started at 0840 and ended one hour later. Match was
12 yard combo, three each 40/60 paper pin and rapid fire five target. All 27 strings of fire were five rounds in ten seconds. Turnout of only nine paying shooters was very low and some of the top shooters were absent, knocking them way down on the YTD rankings. Hopefully, they can make it to the 11 April match, which will probably be under cover at 25 yards – paper silhouette and 400 bullseye.
The range was in great shape due to efforts of Gary Coleman. Range support was ably handled by Russell Gantz. Diana Eyman proficiently handled photography and score cards.
20/40 PAPER PIN-MAX SCORE 20-20X: Rimfire, Linda Hover, 20-13; Centerfire, Pat Clark, 19-3; Revolver, Mike Fulbright, 19-5; Carbine, William Voss, 20-19.
RAPID FIRE FIVE TARGET – MAX SCORE 25-25X: Centerfire, Margaret Clark, 21-2; Revolver, Richard Eyman, 25-8; Carbine, Shawn Maguire.
We still have FIVE shooters in top YTD place. Mike Musick and George Cater have dropped to second place having only shot in two matches.
11/09/19 Pistol Match
A 12 yard paper combo match was fired instead of the scheduled mini pin match due to very wet ground. Sporadic light rains stopped by 0830 and the 12 yard match commenced. The 11 shooters enjoyed the brisk weather. One shooter completed his blue card.
Match ran very smoothly due to efforts of the shooters and the unique talents of Diana Eyman, Mike Hover, Allen Keefer and Bob Hromalik. The esteemed Rich Korscog could not make it as his oxygen hose would not reach from Tampa over to the range.
Three each 20/40 paper pin and rapid fire 5 target matches were fired, 20 and 25 total rounds each respectively. All five shot strings were 10 second duration with shooters’ arms extended down 45 degrees starting position.
January gun show signup sheet was made available. Match fees less expenses were a draw. Winners from this month have a much better chance of winning the Annual top shooter prizes which will be handed out at December match. The top three shooters will receive full bricks of CCI LR! Ties may mean more prizes.
Final match of the year on 12/14 will be the popular real mini pins. You shoot them, you hit them, they fall over! Much more fun than paper!
RESULTS; 20/40 Paper Pin (20/20 max)-Rimfire: Mike Musick tied the record with a perfect 20/20; Center Fire: Mike Fulbright-19/13; Revolver: Richard Eyman-20/11; Carbine: Shawn Maguire 24-27 Rapid fire 5 target (25-25 max)-Centerfire: Pat Clark 25-6 (His first max hit); Revolver: Linda Hover 22-4; Carry: Bill Wilson 13/2; and carbine: Benjamin Gray 23/1.
10/12/19 Pistol Match
Great match, best weather since March. Eighteen shooters, one blue card completed, another blue card signed. Two of our top shooters did not attend, so the YTD rankings made more shifts. Mike Musick remains top scorer.
Match was repeat of September, 25 yard combo of 20/60 paper pine and paper silhouette. Both were 20 rounds each split between 10 and 20 second strings. The new prize combos were popular awards.
Match ran smoothly due to the shooters, range help Allen Keefer/Mike Hover and photographer/scorekeeper/Sgt at arms Diana Eyman. Range was in great shape due to Gary Coleman.
November match will be real bowling pins at 12 yards. We have 18 firing positions on which ten pens will be placed. First 10 pens are timed 20 second fire, reset of pins for second 10 will be rapid fire 10 seconds. You hit target-it fall over! Piece of cake, hard to miss!
RESULTS: 20/60 PAPER PIN-max score 20-20X: rimfire Mike Musick 20-15; centerfire Pat Clark 14-0: Revolver Richard Eyman 18-5; Carry Bill Wilson 8-1; and carbine Neil Munson 15-3. PAPER SILHOUETTE max score 200-20X: rimfire Jordan Mason 193-3; revolver Linda Hover 182-1; carry Tim Huffman 81-0; carbine Mike Fulbright 181-1.
09/14/19 Pistol Match
Another great match with great weather and a refreshing breeze. Fifteen paid shooters with one blue card completed and handed in to the club office. Also, a record match time starting at 0845 and finished by 0930! First match was over before 0900. It’s great when the plan goes together smoothly with minimal delays. Joe Ruth commented on this at the special election meeting-The regular shooters make it happen!
Diana Eyman capably handled the scorekeeping and photography while Mike Hover and Bob Hromalik handled the firing line. The firing line and targets were in great shape thanks to Gary Coleman.
For those who missed the special meeting, Paul Thielen won the secretary position and Peter Gantz won the director position. There are still a few vacancies for the September gun show, mainly on takedown. Call club office for openings.
Two complete 25yard paper silhouette and 20/60 paper pin matches were fired for a total of 1200 rounds. Match expenses were $88, fees were $150, and net to club was $62. YTD costs are $902, fees are $1380, and net is $478.

December Pistol Match
Diana Eyman did the photography and scoring. Rich Korscog and Allen Keefer did the range control. Gary Coleman got the range in great shape.

October Pistol Match
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.
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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
