Bullets were flying at the Rod and Gun Club’s rifle range during the club’s annual trophy shoot held recently. The weather cooperated and it was a great day to be at the rifle range. Participants shot four targets. The first was a 200-yard target shot from the bench-rest position, followed by two 100-yard targets from two different positions, and finally a 50-yard target while standing unsupported. Each target required five shots for a total of 20 shots and a possible top score of 200. Kevin Phillips came out on top with a final score of 189-4x. Mike Kaban came in with 188-5x to take second while Warren Miller took third with 185-5x. Kaban had the top score at 200 yards with 50-4x that also earned him a minute of angle crest. Brian Graham and Miller tied for high score at 100 yards shot from the bench with no rest, when they recorded identical scores of 49-2x. Graham scored a 49-3x to take top score at the 100-yard leaning target shot while standing, beating out Miller by only 1x (an “x” is the one-inch white dot in the middle of the target). Phillips nailed the standing target at 50 yards scoring 47-1x, nudging out Gord Gemmell by one point. Top Gun of the year plaque is awarded to the shooter with the highest average score of shoots attended. For 2010 the award went to Kaban. Hunter shoots are held on the second Saturday of every month throughout the year and include all possible shooting positions and available ranges from 20 to 200 yards. It is not only great fun but good shooting practice as well.
