State Championship Match in Sebastopol

On my trip up to Sebastopol to compete in the California State Indoor Conventional Championship (10/20/13), I felt and saw the beauty of fall, with the grape leaves turning a golden brown and the fog laying a soft blanket across the ranches on my way there. The rustic range has it’s own unique flavor which is as “all American” as it can get with the room’s pot belly stove and hanging American flag. Looking down the firing line, the gun boxes are steeped in tradition and honor as we shoot a discipline as old as shooting itself. This match is less about the scores shot but more about the camaraderie and shared experience of the event. Come shoot the big matches in a small range for you will learn more from the experience, than that of your score.

 

Falling Plate Rifle Match

Another beautiful California autumn day to enjoy the wonderful shooting sports protected by our 2nd amendment.  It was the Falling Plate Rifle match this morning, shooting at 6 inch steel falling plates at varying distances and times.  John was the overall winner today with a commanding lead in each match.  The field was riddled with jams, misfire and misses.  Here’s a few of the many exotic and custom rifles used by the competitors.
