Santa Margarita Gun Club

2017-02-02 – Letter from the Long Range Director

You may have noticed a new sponsor on the home page of the website, so it seems like time to announce the new sponsor for some of our activities with the Santa Margarita Gun Club. David Whitsitt of US Lapua is sponsoring reloading components for the Wounded Warriors at the Mid and Long Range events that we host. He is also providing some complete ammunition and bullets for service rifles for the enlisted Marines and Wounded Warriors competing in XTC and Mid-Range. Harry and I are working to invite and provide rifles and ammo for the Wounded Warriors who are part of the Wounded Warrior Battalion West on Camp Pendleton, so anyone who wants to help out give Harry or I a shout.

David’s generous donations have come after a couple of years of Duane Fitzgerald, our Assistant Long Range Director, purchasing Lapua products thru David’s US Lapua website:

David is also sponsoring our F-Class Open team at matches where we will be competing in the team events. The team is composed of Walter Lange, Duane Fitzgerald, Mike Jones and Lou Murdica. Our plan is to compete at the upcoming Berger SW Nationals in Phoenix, the California State Palma Championships in March and the Arizona State Championships in April and the F-Class Nationals in Lodi at the end of September. We will be coached by Richard King (a friend of Walter) and Harry Harrison. We figured Harry needed something useful to do until his shoulder is fully back in shooting shape, and he obviously can read the wind.

Mike Jones
Long Range Director, Santa Margarita Gun Club
