Wartrace Shoot 4/4/09

God blessed us with a great day for a Cowboy Shoot. Thanks to Very Old Barton for getting Jim Scoutten aka 10 Ring host of The Outdoor Channel's, Shooting USA, producer Mark Shafer, cameraman Chris Gerlach, Mike Irvine aka Black Bottle Mike and Mark's son Justin Shafer, to come to our range and do a segment on our club.

10 Ring and Black Bottle Mike shot 3 Stages with us as well. I also found out that Justin shot a six-gun for the first time while here.

We would also like to thank Gray Rat , a friend of Very Old Barton, for driving down from South Dakota to shoot with us.

We shot from the Gallows, Grafton's Saloon, Wells Fargo Bank, the Depot and the Marshall's Office. Whiskey Hayes put together some fast and fun stages with no procedural traps (although I got one from a senior moment).

We had 63 cowboys and cowgirls defending Wartrace today

The top five shooters were Will Reilly, Papa Dave, Jailbreak Jake, Whiskey Hayes and Shaddai Vaquero. They will make up the Shootist Category next month.

12 shooter shot a clean match, way to go.

Vaquero Jake celebrated his 12th birthday with us today, thanks for the cake.

J B Little bit shot his first clean match today and was presented a Silver Dollar by Birdgun Quail for his accomplishment.

We hope everyone had a good time and comes to our first mid-month shoot of the year April 18th. Some of us will be shooting The Georgia State Match that weekend. Our next main month shoot is May 2nd, and I think the next Wild Bunch match is May 30th.

If you missed this you missed a good one, don't miss the next one.

I will hopefully find out in a few weeks when the Shooting USA segment will air.

I'll try to link the scores as soon as they are up.
