Results from Guthsville Gun Club Smallbore 800 Aggregate Match (2/17/18)

A group of LPRGC shooters routinely participate in various competitions at other gun clubs in the surrounding area. The Guthsville Gun Club is north of LPRGC in the vicinity of Dorney Park. Four shooters from the “LPRGC Rifle Team” (Greg Stanko, Mark Harvill, Justin Schildt (aka. “just-incredible), and Todd Thompson) participated in the match this month at Guthsville. These matches are always fun and are nice during the winter months since the facility is located indoors. As you will see from the scores below, there are some excellent shooters that participate in these events and the scores show it.  Although the places may not show it, the team shot very well with personal bests shot by Mark Harvill and Todd Thompson.

This was the last match of the season at Guthsville and the team will now be preparing for other Smallbore and High-Power matches coming up soon.

800 Aggregate Smallbore Competition

Scores for February 16, 2018 Match

The monthly 800 Aggregate match took place last night and there were 5 shooters who participated.  Quite a few folks were missing, but we attempted to carry on anyway.  Each round was immediately scored by the official team scorekeeper (aka. me) so that we could finish up more quickly.

At the end of the match, it was Greg S. (aka. “The Machine”) once again setting another record high score of 798 for the win.  Closely following Greg was Justin with an impressive 780…..must me the new Comb adjustment device installed on his rifle since the last match!!  Joe C. had a respectable score and once we got Phil N. to actually shoot the correct number of rounds at each bull, he ended up with a decent score as did Frank C.

Everyone stayed for a while afterwards to enjoy a cool beverage and talk about various important topics that I cannot seem to recall at the moment!

General Info

This is a year-round activity .22 caliber rimfire rifle program for adults. Qualification shooting is the ideal way to develop and build shooting proficiency by progressing through each skill level, from Pro-Marksman through Distinguished Expert. During each shooting session, you will fire at appropriate targets and score those targets toward achievement of the next skill level. Each skill level requires 10 targets of 5 rounds per target that achieve a specific number of points per target depending upon the skill level. Various skill levels require firing from prone, sitting, kneeling and standing positions. Our Program Director keeps an accurate record of each shooter’s designation and issues patches, skill rockers, pins, medals and certificates as the participant achieves the next level of proficiency.

The adult smallbore program will meet the first Thursday of every month from 6:30-9:30pm on the Indoor Range.  No pre-registration is required – come on out and bring out your.22 rifles!

All rifles and all sight setup’s are welcome!

Long Range Smallbore will resume on March 27 at 5pm on the 100yd range.  These events are monthly on the 4th Tuesday of the month.  Test your skills at longer distances!

All Smallbore events are open to all members.  Guests are not permitted.
