The Santa Margarita Gun Club had its first EIC match at Camp Pendleton in quite some time. We have a new range there now. Range 214 in the Horno area. It is a very nice range and more secluded than our previous range.
It offers pistol, rifle and LR shooting.
Twenty-two (22) rifle shooters came out to join us in our inaugural rifle match there and they all rolled well with the “first time” shooting there surprises and discoveries. For example, who’d-a-thought white pasters stored in a conex on base for two years would cement themselves to the backers they are on but the black ones wouldn’t?
Eighteen (18) shooters were non-distinguished.
Kevin Cooper came out on top with a 477 and 9 to get a silver and is now, pending CMP approval, a Distinguished Rifleman.
Jason Van Curen earned a bronze and is now at 24 points and on the cusp of earning his DR medal. He shot a 472 with 11.
High Service Rifle shooter of the day was Gregory Brown with a 485 and 14.
High Match Rifle was Harry Harrison with a 483 and 14.
Thanks for coming out to shoot and thanks for everyones help.
