Multi-Gun Match Scores June 2013


June 30 2013 Multi gun match results

Mr. Rogers used to start his kid’s program by singing “It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood …”

[Rumor has it that Mr. Rogers always wore a sweater on his show, because he was a former Special Forces soldier in ‘Nam, and had Special Forces tattoos on his arms, which he didn’t want to display to children.  I can’t confirm that, but it is a good story.]

In any event, it was a beautiful day at the OFGC Range Neighborhood last Sunday for the Multi gun match.  Temps in the low to mid 80’s, nice breeze.

Match results are attached.  Doug eased out Billy Smith for first place.

Congrats to Doug, but here’s … “The Rest of the Story…”

Saturday at set up, Billy told me he was bringing a Remington 870, and was going to shoot the slide action shotgun to snatch from me the title of “Pump Daddy.”  His sorta exact words were, “You been Pump Daddy, you gonna be Pump GrandDaddy, I’ll be Pump Daddy from now on.”

I had nothing to do with the following (pins stuck in the ‘Pump Daddy” doll don’t count)   Billy’s Remington 870 went South on him (I think there was a pin stuck in the slide).  He borrowed another shotgun to finish the match, and didn’t realize it had a 10 round tube.  Loaded it full, without counting.  Fired 10 rounds without a reload, which got him kicked into Open Class.  Not his fault, but rules are rules.  I’m not sure that made a lot of difference, but I’ll teach him not to challenge the “Pump Daddy” title!!

Whatever, I just had to give Billy a hard time.  Great match on last Sunday.

Next Multi gun match is Sunday, July 14.  Handgun follows on Sunday, July 21, with a double Classifier match.  Details on both matches will follow soon.

Enjoy your 4th of July.  God Bless America!
