***RESULTS FROM THE JUNE BPCR VERSES LEVER ACTION OFF HAND MATCH***
To all: Sometimes I just don’t get it. Almost every BPCR match shot has the winner determined by how well the competitor shoots chickens. Just look at everyone’s off hand chicken count and you can see a lot of room for improvement. Once a year we hold the Off-Hand BPCR verses the Lever Gun match at the Pistol Silhouette range. It not only offers the opportunity for practicing off-hand shooting but also to enjoy some rivalry with the Lever Action shooters as well as beating the June heat. The Pistol Silhouette range has auto-resetting targets so there is no need to leave the shaded shooting line to reset targets. Also we reduce the shooting time to 10 minutes for 10 targets since there are no sighting shots allowed. Starting the match at 9:00 means we can shoot 3 relays and be finished by 12:00 before the heats gets bad. This year there was plenty of cold bottled water, some cut up fruit and when the match was finished Ron Calderone brought up from Tucson a large container of EEGEE’s frozen slush drink. It’s not available in Phoenix but is a very popular treat in the Tucson area and was really enjoyed by everyone on a hot day. Thanks Ronbo!!!! It was also only fitting that Ronbo also won the match after bringing the EeGee’s. There has always been rivalry between Chip and Ron for their off-hand abilities and it’s also been awhile since Ron has come out on top of this match up. Once again the Lever Action shooters out numbered the BPCR shooters and although the BPCR shooters held down the two top positions I can only hope that those that stayed home enjoyed watching cartoons on TV awhile eating their bowl of Fruit Loops. The rest of us got in some needed practice and had a blast. See you next year? Steve Rhoades Match Director
