Silver Mountain Electronic Target System 600 yard F class match, 2/11/2017

Big Piney Sportsman’s Club in Houston, Mo. had their first Silver Mountain Electronic Target System 600 yard F class match.

It was a beautiful warm sunny day with changing winds making shooting tough.There were 22 shooters, one of them being a new junior shooter, Kamryn Weeks. Watch out guys for this little girl!! She is a awesome shooter.

We want to thank everyone for coming out to support the club and for their patience. Things went pretty well for the first electronic match. There were a few wrinkles that we have to iron out. Everyone adapted to the new system very well, and seemed to enjoy it.

We welcome everyone to come shoot with us. Hope to see you at Big Piney’s next match, on March 11th 2017

2016 600 Yard International Benchrest Shooters National Championship

Hello everyone. If you were not at Big Piney the 24&25 you really missed a big event. We had 82 shooters from 14 different states. As far away as Fl.,ND.,ID., SC., NC., and many others. Two days of non stop shooting.  The weather was great and so was the food and a good time was had by all. We heard many good compliments about the facility and the good match. Thanks to everyone for all their hard work and to all the shooters.

 

 

img_7374People started to roll into the little Missouri town Wednesday afternoon in preparation for the battle of the best shooters in the Nation. On Thursday and Friday competitors checked in and acclimated themselves to the beautiful 600 Yard range that belongs to the Big Piney Sportsman’s Club in Houston, MO. Everyone was very impressed with the facility and underestimated the conditions that Big Piney could throw at them.img_7363

img_7389Opening morning for Light gun class proved to be challenging. Start time was pushed back one hour due to the fog settling in the firing line. By the second half of 8 targets shooters began to settle in and take control of the conditions. The Missouri shooters stayed on top with Ben Peters winning light gun score with a 385. Jason Walker came out with a group win with a 2.008” through 8 targets. With Tom Jacobs, Darrel Dacus, Jim Bauer, and Carrol Lance rounding out the top 5 in Light gun overall  it was going to be a hard fight to the finish.img_7376

img_7448Sunday the Heavy gun started right on time with the clouds keeping the fog in check. Relay 3 started the day and put it on top shelf for everyone to follow. The conditions seemed to stay pretty steady and helped create some amazing groups. Tom Jacobs came through with a 1.685 Heavy gun group aggregate. Rookie shooters Jim Kowske and TJ Stroop put on a great Heavy gun performance. Jim was second in Heavy gun group with 1.996” and TJ shot his way to second in score with a 384. Jason Walker hung on winning Heavy gun score with a 389. This set up Jason as the Heavy gun overall winner.img_7447

img_7506Jason dominated the weekend landing himself a 2 gun Overall Championship. The top Rookie honors went to TJ Stroop. Sally Bauer won the Overall top female. Rory Jacobs was able to seal the top Junior spot.img_7510

The Big Piney crew would like to thank everyone for being great friends and competitors! We could not have done it without everyone!
