York Chapter #67
Action Shooting Matches
Multi-Gun, or 3 Gun, as it is sometimes called is an extremely demanding sport. Shooters are always timed, and the shooting, movement, and switching of guns is blazing fast. Hits on steel targets with rifle as far as 180 yards were required, as were pistol shots at 50 yards, and shotgun slugs at 90 yards. There were all kinds of props, targets, both still and moving, and lots of running. The demanding match was long and physical, but everyone seemed to enjoy it. Good weather, great food, and fellowship with other shooters were common, and York has a stellar reputation in the multi-gun commu- nity. If you’ve never been to one of our matches you are encouraged to come watch, and maybe even compete if you’re up for a challenge. Go to YouTube and search York 3 Gun and I’m sure you will find plenty of videos from the match. For more news, updates, match results at: WWW.YORKPISTOL.BLOGSPOT.COM
Mid-Atlantic Multi-Gun Championship
We hosted the Invictus Practical sponsored Mid-Atlantic Multi-Gun Championship on our grounds June 9th and 10th, and it was a rousing success. Some of the best shooters in the country came from at least 13 surrounding states to compete in seven very challenging stages using two or three guns on each. Skills with pistol, rifle and shotgun were tested thoroughly, and when the dust cleared Nick Molina came away with a stunning victory. One of our board of directors, Buddy Knight finished 3rd, which was very respectable in such a tough field of competitors.
